How many airline crashes per year would we allow before we demanded safety? This may seem like a silly question and yet the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPIT) stated last Thursday at a public hearing at the FDA that cutting the salt content in restaurant and processed foods could save up to 150,000 lives annually by reducing heart related diseases. Hmm, that?s a lot of lives. Let?s say for argument?s sake maybe the number is ramped up so let?s cut it in half. Can we turn our backs on 75,000 deaths per year?

The weekend is coming and it might find some of us nestled in to a theater seat, popcorn in hand, waiting for the lights to dim. But before you start munching away, let’s take a look at exactly what’s in that tub you’re holding. A study from the Center for Science in the Public Interest detailed the contents of popcorn from three movie theater chains. A large tub of popcorn from Regal Cinemas holds 20 cups of popcorn and sports 1,200 calories, 980 milligrams of sodium and 60 grams of saturated (the bad kind)

Images and data from one of Saturn’s moons were sent earlier this week to JPL scientists in La Cañada Flintridge, indicating the possible presence of a liquid ocean beneath the surface of the tiny Enceladus that may contain the conditions necessary for life. Information was gathered in a flyby Monday morning as part of the Cassini mission to Saturn, currently five years underway, in which NASA hopes to learn more about the exact composition of bodies existing within the planet’s rings.

In the 1950s, owners of a dude ranch in Southern California came up with a new salad dressing to serve their guests. They called it ranch dressing and you know the rest of the story. Today it’s an empire, and pretty much anything that’s not nailed down has been dipped in it and consumed. I recently saw teenagers at an eatery here on Foothill Boulevard dipping pizza into ranch dressing. Having just written that, you may be expecting an article about the fat content of the aforementioned snack, but I have bigger ranch-dipped fish to fry. Let’s say the average Joe will put about four tablespoons of ranch dressing on a salad — the specially-designed wide mouth bottle is difficult to stop pouring, but we’ll assume it stops at 4 tablespoons and quantify that serving.

Ten Years Ago A community meeting was called by local developer Ted Slaught to discuss his intent to put a retail development at the northwest corner of Foothill Boulevard at Commonwealth Avenue, an eyesore of a property where a Mobil gas station and Napa Auto Parts store had done business in years past.

When I researched the topic, I discovered that I was woefully ignorant on the subject. Maybe you'd like to digest a few facts that are new to you, too? Sweet potatoes are native to the Americas.
