    O.J. Simpson has spent the past eight years locked up in Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Center for his role in the 2007 armed robbery and kidnapping of a Las Vegas sports memorabilia dealer. He is not fairing well, his former business manager, Nick Pardo, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "He's a broken man," says Pardo. "He's really becoming a recluse and doesn't want to talk to anybody, including his own family." Adds Pardo, "He just wants to serve his time and part of him knows the only way to do that is to forget the outside world exists, which is hard to do...

    WHAT COMMON PRACTICE WILL HORRIFY OUR KIDS SOMEDAY?It puts babies' overall nutrition at risk Question Everything IconMany families are trying to reduce their soda intake but manufacturers are fighting back with “no added sugar” formulations and “fruit” drinks. So far, they’re winning. A drink of diluted fruit juice is the routine afternoon snack of many babies. It’s often the good stuff: pure juice. No nasty preservatives, more vitamin C than necessary and no added sugar. But you don’t have to add sugar to make fruit juice sweet—that’s why babies prefer it to water. And because they prefer it, it becomes...

    Health officials in New York City are cutting the amount of just (juice) that can be served in day care centers and raising the age of children who can drink it. In new rules published this week, the Health Code limits the amount of juice a child can drink a day at 4 ounces. The old rules allowed 6 ounces a day. Children must now also be 2-years-old to be served juice. The old rules allowed children as young as 8-months old to be served juice. The city cites USDA recommendations that the majority of a child's recommended fruit servings...

    Food Chemistry: The amino acid L-citrulline found in the fruit could help athletes avoid muscle soreness after a hard workoutBefore taking a long bike ride on a hot summer day, have some watermelon: The juicy fruit may ward off muscle pains. Researchers report that people who drank watermelon juice before exercising felt less sore the next day than those who drank a pink placebo beverage (J. Agric. Food Chem. 2013, DOI: 10.1021/jf400964r). They also found that cells absorb the presumed active ingredient, L-citrulline, more readily from unpasteurized watermelon juice than from plain water spiked with the compound, suggesting the natural...

    Saudi authorities are investigating how Israeli pencils reached one of the kingdom's biggest retail chains. The Kravitz chain, which markets the pencils in Israel, was surprised to hear about the affair stirring up the Gulf kingdom. It turns out that Abu Rialin, a Saudi chain which offers all of its items for two riyals, is selling one of Kravitz's most popular products – a set of 12 pencils with an eraser. The pencils are sold with the Kravitz logo in Hebrew and without any attempt to conceal the fact that they are made in Israel. Kravitz learned about the incident...

    AIPAC President Lee Rosenberg has sent an e-mail to delegates not to boo President Barack Obama during his speech to the AIPAC annual policy conference on Sunday. "We ask that you act and react to every speech, address, and briefing, that will be offered as part of the conference program in only the most positive manner," Rosenberg wrote. Rosenberg's e-mail is clearly targeted at responses to Obama's speech, as there is no concern that the AIPAC delegates will heckle Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or other Israeli speakers.

    LAKELAND, Fla. – Olive Garden restaurants are making changes after a toddler was served alcoholic sangria instead of orange juice at a Florida location. News of the incident comes after an Applebee's in Michigan accidently served a margarita to another toddler. Orlando, Fla.-based Darden Restaurants says the mix-up happened March 31 in Lakeland. Jill VanHeest says she took her 2-year-old son Nikolai to the hospital after his eyes turned red and dilated and he began acting up. She said he was given fluids and released a couple hours later with no lasting effects.

There's also evidence that high consumption increases the risk of obesity, especially among kids. By Karen Kaplan November 8, 2009 To many people, it's a health food. To others, it's simply soda in disguise. That virtuous glass of juice is feeling the squeeze as doctors, scientists and public health authorities step up their efforts to reduce the nation's girth. It's an awkward issue for the schools that peddle fruit juice in their cafeterias and vending machines. It's uncomfortable...

    Drinking beetroot juice boosts stamina and could help people exercise for up to 16% longer, a UK study suggests. A University of Exeter team found nitrate contained in the vegetable leads to a reduction in oxygen uptake - making exercise less tiring. The small Journal of Applied Physiology study suggests the effect is greater than that which can be achieved by regular training. Beetroot juice has previously been shown to reduce blood pressure.

    Broccoli juice 'better than sunscreens' Last Updated: 2:41am BST 23/10/2007 Broccoli juice is better than conventional sunscreens when it comes to protecting against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, research has shown. Tests on six volunteers exposed to pulses of UV radiation showed the extract reduced sunburn symptoms by up to 78 per cent. Conventional sunscreens used in the same experiments were essentially ineffective. The ointment was made from extracts of three-day-old broccoli sprouts rich in protective compounds called sulphoraphanes. Unlike a normal sunscreen, it does not absorb UV light to prevent it entering the skin. Instead, it works inside the...

    An international investigation code-named Operation Raw Deal that culminated in the last four days could produce the next steroids scandal in sports – and perhaps the biggest yet. The undercover operation led by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration resulted in the seizure of massive amounts of anabolic steroids from an illegal, underground network and the ability to identify hundreds of thousands of people who received steroids and other substances used by some athletes as performance-enhancing drugs, a DEA spokesman told Yahoo! Sports on Sunday. Most of the raids took place in the United States, and the DEA called the steroids...

    Most parents wouldn't dream of it. But researchers say that when a baby's bottle or cup is filled with juice -- even the 100 percent, all-natural, no-sugar-added stuff -- parents might as well be pouring Pepsi. A growing body of science is linking sweet drinks, natural or otherwise, to a host of child health concerns, everything from bulging bellies to tooth decay. "All of these beverages are largely the same. They are 100 percent sugar," Dr. David Ludwig, an expert on pediatric obesity at Children's Hospital Boston, said recently. "Juice is only minimally better than soda."

The activities are designed to help shorten any war with Iraq and keep Israel out of it. But working with Israel on the war effort is highly sensitive. It could undercut already shaky support for an invasion among friendly Arab states. Because Israel's activities are classified, they...
