ENCINITAS, Calif. (KGTV) – Friends say Jade Erick was a “free spirit” who was as beautiful on the inside as she was outside. She was also interested in holistic health, but that interest may have contributed to her death at the age of 30.
Erick died after a bad reaction to turmeric, a spice used in Indian food and in dietary supplements, that was dripped directly into her veins through an I-V.
According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner the cause of her death was “: anoxic encephalopathy due to prolonged resuscitated cardiopulmonary arrest due to adverse reaction to infused turmeric solution”. A spokesperson confirmed the turmeric was delivered through an IV.
Let’s see a ‘raise of hands’ – how many of you have kids who act like eating vegetables is worse than going to the dentist or doctor?
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s one of the most common parenting challenges out there.
Parents know that kids need the nutrients that vegetables provide, but sometimes it’s easier to just not fight with them and let them skip that dish of broccoli, spoonful of spinach, or whatever it may be.
And, while tricking kids isn’t always the greatest parenting tactic, in this case, it’s for a good cause. In other words, when it comes to your kids’ nutrition, all’s fair.

If Senate Republicans fail to pass their regressive health care plan, there’s quite a bit of support among GOP members to strike a bipartisan deal with Senate Democrats and move on to other issues. There is, however, a radically different approach that’s also on the table.
Donald Trump published a tweet two weeks ago in which he said he supports a repeal-and-delay model in which Congress immediately repeals the Affordable Care Act, and then figures out a replacement model at some point down the road. Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh asked Mike Pence if he’s on board with such an approach, and the vice president, after dismissing the idea of bipartisan policymaking out of hand, replied:
“We believe if they can’t pass this carefully crafted repeal-and-replace bill – do those two things simultaneously – we ought to just repeal only, and then have enough time built into that legislation to craft replacement legislation.”
First, to describe the current Senate Republican blueprint as “carefully crafted” is plainly ridiculous. For anyone who takes this issue seriously, the legislation is a joke. Second, it’s not exactly a good sign that GOP leaders are currently arguing about what to do after their health care legislation dies.
But let’s put that aside and consider the substantive, policy implications of what the vice president just publicly endorsed.
Waffles are known for their buttery, sugary deliciousness.

WAYNESBORO, Va. – As Washington tangles over health insurance, many Americans are taking matters into their own hands.
“I wanted something that wasn’t going to be the same sort of trap that I had been in,” said Stephen Strosnider.
Strosnider is an attorney at a small law firm in Waynesboro, Virginia. His wife, Jennifer, is a stay-at-home mom and they have three young boys and a baby on the way.
Two years ago they paid $500 a month for insurance. The premiums have been steadily rising since then, and this year would have hit $1,200 a month – a 52 percent jump from where they started.
“We try and find the best deals that we can, and even the best deals that we could find were going up and up and, according to our insurance broker, everybody’s was going up because of Obamacare. We could choose a different provider but the difference was 10 or 15 dollars a month, there wasn’t going to be a huge savings whichever insurance company we went with,” Strosnider explained.

Basil, crushed garlic and pine nuts may seem like ordinary ingredients, but they combine to form a well-loved Italian sauce — pesto. Derived from the Genoese word “pesta,” meaning “to pound or to crush,” pesto is often used as a pasta sauce, although it can be utilized as a spread, dip or salad dressing as well. Sometimes, pesto can also accompany steak, poultry or fish.1
While the classic Italian recipe is still delicious after all these years, you can surely add variety to boost flavor and nutrition. For example, this homemade pesto recipe adds moringa leaves to the tandem of basil and parsley, making the sauce more vibrant, flavorful and nutritious.

Most of us have little to no idea how behind-the-scenes forces control the food we buy, and the depth of the corruption involved. Philip Howard, Ph.D., author of “Concentration and Power in the Food System: Who Controls What We Eat?,” studies food system changes, with an emphasis on visualizing these trends.1
“My motivation [for writing the book] was to uncover what’s going on, to help people understand who owns what and all the strategies these dominant firms use to further increase their power,” he says.
His work has been featured by many prominent media outlets, including The New York Times, The Washington Post and Chicago Tribune. He’s an associate professor in the department of community sustainability at Michigan State University and holds a Ph.D. in rural sociology.
If you carry an EpiPen in case of a deadly allergic reaction, you’ve probably noticed the price skyrocket over the last decade. The injectors now cost over $600 and still expire after a year, so it may be tempting to carry an expired EpiPen, or none at all. There’s an alternative, though: the Adrenaclick is a different device that delivers the same drug.
