    A recent study published in the journal Nature Medicine reported that eating cheese — specifically the aged kind containing the compound spermidine, as found in blue cheese — was linked to a longer life in mammals when tested on mice. “The mice do not only live longer when we supplement spermidine to the drinking water, but they are also healthier in terms of cardiac function,” Frank Madeo, co-author of the study and a professor at the University of Graz in Austria, told Medical Daily.

    The country's best-selling cookbook right now is for people who don't really cook, written by a hyperkinetic 43-year-old former TV producer named Lisa Lillien, who once upon a time hated the fact that she couldn't fit into her skinny jeans. "I was that person who would sit at the computer and eat an entire bag of fat-free pretzels and think I was doing a good thing," Lillien says. "I wasn't." She lost 25 pounds eight years ago, and in 2003 she started sending her friends low-fat recipes and tips for finding healthful food in mainstream supermarkets. She then very smartly...

    Man might get prison time for sharing snack cake with inmate Thursday, May 1, 2008 6:19 PM By Mary Beth Lane THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH He slept through a fire drill, had loose tobacco in his possession and didn't show up for kitchen duty. Then Timothy E. Caudill shared a Little Debbie snack cake with another inmate at a correctional facility in southeastern Ohio. That was the last straw. The 21-year-old was kicked out of the residential community corrections program that was a requirement of his probation. And he could go to prison. That is absurd, said Caudill's attorney, Claire “Buzz”...

    MALTA -- George Crum's name doesn't mean much to most people, even though his invention probably is eaten in the millions daily. Crum is credited with discovering the potato chip, slicing potatoes so thin they couldn't be picked up with a fork, then frying them.Crum supposedly created the chips spitefully in 1853, after a patron at Moon's Lake House didn't like his thick french fries. Now chips are eaten worldwide.That's what brought a crew from the German television show "Talents and Patents" to Malta and Saratoga Springs on Tuesday."It's the story of very basic things: glue, ballpoints. Nobody knows they...

    Harvard Study: Snack Foods And Soda Not Linked To Obesity From the rhetoric coming out of last weekend's obesity-lawsuit-pushing Public Health Advocacy Institute (PHAI) conference in Boston, you'd think snack foods and soft drinks were the number one cause of childhood obesity. But the sue-first-ask-questions-later food cops and trial lawyers apparently didn't bother to consult researchers across town at Harvard, who last week provided the latest evidence that snack foods and soda are actually not a cause of childhood obesity. After studying more than 14,000 American children, a team of six Harvard doctors found that snack food and soda do...

The observation is reported by scientists using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). Although the black hole is headed roughly in our direction, it is at a "safe" distance, 6,000 to 9,000 light-years away, in the direction of the constellation Scorpius. The object's velocity has been measured at more than 400,000 kilometres per hour, good evidence say the astronomers that...
