In what is in-arguably a positive trend for chain restaurants, more natural ingredients (over artificial ingredients) are making a strong push towards prominence. McDonalds has recently made a big push towards natural, fresh chicken and Panera has removed a selection of additives from their products. One could argue these moves are all responses to Chipotle’s positioning as the healthier, more tasty option in the fast-casual field. Chipotle is famous for their claim of fresh, organic ingredients and responsibly raised meats. While many ingredients that are being cut from menus are safe at the levels they are presented at, the perception of healthier food is key to marketing to an emerging fickle millennial demographic. From a health perspective, if this leads to a higher quality meal, ingredients and less questionable industrial production, it’s a win for consumers based on that alone. Industrial meat production has been accused of promoting overcrowded, unsanitary conditions with a high amount of antibiotic use as a preventative measure for livestock. That has been linked by some to antibiotic resistant bacterias. But, it’s important for customers to remember that artificial ingredients does not automatically mean more unsafe or toxic. Toxicity is based on doses, and as any chemist will tell you, it’s all about the dose. The levels present in food are commonly benign. But, if kids grow up demanding a higher quality chicken or beef, it can only serve them well on that basis alone by promoting healthy attitudes. Read More

Columbus, OH: The polar vortex may be moving out of our area, but it brought to the forefront the very important issue of protection against extreme cold. Schools were closed, business suspended and travel was limited to avoid exposure to the sub-zero temperatures and even more extreme wind chill. The average person was left with a renewed appreciation for the damage the extreme freeze can cause, which is in some cases fatal for very vulnerable people. While that extreme is more unlikely, it’s easier than you may think to feel the symptoms of frostbite, or damage to the skin as a result of freezing temperatures. The name may be familiar, but you may not know the details of this condition. Frostbite can be identified first as areas of redness or pain on exposed skin due to cold temperatures. The colder the temperature, the less time the skin can be safely exposed. According to the National Weather Service, with a temperature of 0 degrees Fahrenheit and 15mph wind, frostbite can occur less than 30 minutes. At -10 Fahrenheit, that time can drop to just 10 minutes. Some may take being numb as a normal consequence of being outside and not a problem, but it’s the first stage of a serious process. At the first encounter of these symptoms, it is best to head inside immediately and warm up to avoid greater complications and prevent frostbite. When the affected individual is back in a warm location, there are a few steps you can take. First, try to get into a relaxed position and do not walk or use the area affected, as that can increase the damage. Next, immerse the affected skin in warm water, but not hot water. Test the water with an area not affected by frostbite, and it should be warm to the touch but not overpowering. That includes unnatural sources of heat, such as a fireplace or radiator. Sometimes when a person is extremely cold they can underestimate the damaging high temperatures. If water is unavailable, body heat can be a useful substitute, such as an armpit. If you’re concerned that my have suffered damaging frostbite or you have questions, call Scioto Urgent Care at (614) 789-9464. A medical professional will help you determine the best course of action. The facility is located at: 4760 Sawmill Road, in Columbus, OH.
