WASHINGTON — Chances are you’ve heard of mapping genes to diagnose rare diseases, predict your risk of cancer and tell your ancestry. But to uncover food poisonings?
In Atlanta, microbiologist Molly Freeman pulls listeria bacteria from a tube to be tested for its DNA fingerprinting.

Leaving aside anything made with powdered eggs (which don’t really count as eggs at all in my book), I’ve never met an egg dish I didn’t like. But at the tippy top of my list of favorites is the edible magic trick known as the souffléd omelet.
The local non-profit Healthy You Network will bring together a medical doctor, a nutritionist/dietician, a psychologist and a chiropractor to speak about various aspects of diet and plant-based nutrition during a two-day symposium scheduled for the weekend of May 3 and 4 at the Berger Center…

When I was in high school, my mom and I threw all kinds of dinner parties.
It’s apple season again, one of the few times of the year I’m sorry I live in the city, without a car. If only I lived near an orchard, I’d pick my own apples and be happy.
As the Healthy You Network prepares for its next big event, a “Your Health, Your Planet” symposium, it is easy to see that the group, which emphasizes healthy living through a whole, plant-based diet, is getting ready for growth.
Kids have to eat before they can learn. It’s just common sense; cognition is a function of nutrition. The good news is we have the food programs to end childhood hunger, allowing them to more easily learn to read, write and do arithmetic that are keys to breaking out of poverty.
