Many parents know how seriously American schools have taken nut allergies in recent years. Today, medical experts report there's a new food allergy threat that's every bit as serious. Unfortunately, this has been a staple of the American diet for decades… and it might be a tougher food to eradicate from all the places children go.WebMD has reported that food-induced anaphylaxis (allergic reactions) led to a 25% increase in hospitalizations among children between 2006 and 2012, according to an analysis of pediatric hospital data performed in 2019. While for years, peanuts and other tree nuts were to blame more than other foods, cow's milk is now "the most common food allergy in children younger than five years," according to the WebMD report. Astoundingly, cow's milk is said to account "for about half of all food allergies in children younger than one."RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According to NutritionistsIt's reported that in the U.K., cow's milk was the food allergy most likely to lead to death in school-aged children. Carla Davis, M.D., director of the food allergy program at the Texas Children's Hospital in Houston was quoted saying, "Cow's milk allergy is the most distressing of the food allergies. Many people are unaware that it can cause anaphylaxis that is so severe." Davis added: "People do not think about how much of this is in our food."The report explains that cow's milk has been a popular drink for children for its calcium, vitamins, and other nutrients, like protein. However, some of these same proteins are the very triggers that the body identifies as foreign and attacks, which produces the allergic reaction event. Some experts say all this is why it's so important to educate the public about the dangers of dairy today.If there's good news, it's that as children age, reports suggest that some outgrow the cow's milk allergy. In the meantime, if you're looking to clean up your kitchen, check out 22 tips to cut back on dairy, according to experts.Sign up for the Eat This, Not That! newsletter for the everyday nutrition news your family needs.
Liam Scarlett, a rising-star British dancer and choreographer until sexual harassment accusations surfaced two years ago, died on Friday at age 35. No cause of death has been disclosed. “It is with great sadness that we announce the tragic, untimely death of our beloved Liam,” his family said in a statement. “At this difficult time for all of our family, we would ask that you respect our privacy to enable us to grieve our loss.” His death came shortly after the Royal Danish Ballet canceled a production of his ballet “Frankenstein” that had been schedule for spring 2022 following accusations of misconduct toward members of the Royal Danish Ballet staff in 2018 and 2019. Also Read: Hollywood's Notable Deaths of 2021 (Photos) Last year, the U.K.’s Royal Ballet severed ties with Scarlett even though a seven-month investigation into accusations into his behavior toward students at the Royal Ballet School found “no matters to pursue.” He also lost his position last spring as artistic associate at Australia’s Queensland Ballet. Prior to the accusations, Scarlett was seen as precocious talent with a meteoric rise in the ballet world. He joined the Royal Ballet in 2006 as a dancer and choreographed his first work, 2010’s “Asphodel Meadows,” at age 24. He soon dedicated himself to choreography full-time, making his mark with his first full-length ballet, 2014’s “Frankenstein.” As an artist in residence with the Royal Ballet, he created many of the company’s major new productions, including a new staging of “Swan Lake” that debuted in 2018. He also choreographed the dance sequences in the 2018 Disney film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” featuring the dancers Misty Copeland and Sergei Polunin. The Royal Opera House tweeted in sympathy: “We are deeply saddened to hear the news of Liam Scarlett’s death. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this very sad time.“ The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255) is a free, 24/7 confidential service that can provide people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress, or those around them, with support, information and local resources.

The liver is one of the body's most crucial organs, responsible for detoxifying the blood, metabolizing macronutrients, and producing chemicals that enable essential bodily processes. And during this pandemic, many of us are not treating it properly: "Although national figures are not available, admissions for alcoholic liver disease at Keck Hospital of the University of Southern California were up 30% in 2020 compared with 2019, said Dr. Brian Lee, a transplant hepatologist who treats the condition in alcoholics," reports Kaiser Health News. "There's been a tremendous influx," Dr. Haripriya Maddur, a hepatologist at Northwestern Medicine, told the website. Read on to see the #1 danger sign—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated.The #1 Danger Sign Your Liver Is in Trouble is Fluid RetentionIf your liver isn't functioning properly, it can cause serious, even fatal, health problems. So how does your liver let your body know it's in poor condition? According to the Cleveland Clinic, fluid retention is the most common symptom of liver disease. It's experienced by about 50% of people with cirrhosis, the most severe form of liver disease, when scar tissue replaces healthy liver tissue. Fluid retention can show up as swelling in your legs or as a distended abdomen. It's caused when the liver no longer is able to produce albumin, a protein that prevents fluid from leaking out of the blood vessels and into tissue. Other symptoms of liver disease include: Jaundice, otherwise known as yellowing of the eyes or skin. This is caused when the liver is no longer able to process bilirubin, a natural chemical produced by red blood cells; instead, it builds up in the eyes or skin. This is a sign of more serious liver disease, suggesting liver failure. Bleeding, caused when scar tissue in the liver prevents it from processing as much blood as it used to. The blood then diverts to places like the esophagus and digestive tract. You may vomit blood or it may show up in your stool. Pale stools, which can indicate that the liver is having difficulty processing bile.Itchy skin, caused by extra bile salts collecting under the skin. Dark urine, caused by excess bilirubin being excreted through the kidneys.If you're having symptoms of liver disease, contact your healthcare provider right away. RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" CancersHow to Protect Your LiverCirrhosis can be slowed but not reversed, so it's important to prevent your liver from reaching that deteriorated state. To keep your liver healthy, get regular exercise (at least five times a week for 30 minutes each day); maintain a healthy diet and weight; drink alcohol in moderation (meaning no more than one drink a day for women and two drinks for men); get vaccinated against hepatitis A and B if your doctor recommends it; and take medications carefully (take them as directed, and don't mix them with alcohol). And to get through this pandemic at your healthiest, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.

If you're a sparkling water fan, you're probably serious about your fizz fix. That appears to be the case for lovers of this sparkling water from one of the world's most-loved supermarket chains, now that a lawsuit was filed against the grocer this week. The plaintiff claims that although the store is usually known for going natural, this time the brand failed to deliver on its essence.The National Law Review reports that on April 11 in the Southern District of New York, a class action lawsuit was filed against Whole Foods. The plaintiff, who currently doesn't appear to be identified, alleges that Whole Foods' Lemon Raspberry Italian Sparkling Mineral Water is barely lemon or raspberry, apparently because the water contained such trivial traces of both fruits' ingredients that it can't be merited by law to list these fruits as ingredients.RELATED: Grocery Shortages To Expect in 2021, According To ExpertsIf the legal complaint itself seems trivial, here's where the argument gets technical—from the report: "The lawsuit … alleges that because the ingredient list does not separately identify raspberry or lemon ingredients, flavor derived from these ingredients is only a de minimis part of the Organic Natural Flavor and does not meet the consumer expectation of 'appreciable amounts' of these ingredients."This Whole Foods Lemon Raspberry Italian Sparkling Mineral Water was actually put under lab analysis, whose results the plaintiff says are proof "that the product does not contain the range of compounds that would be expected if real raspberries and lemons were used."How to translate all this? We checked out the ingredients list: carbonated mineral water and "Organic natural flavours (raspberry, lemon)." From our interpretation, it appears the plaintiff asserts that the "flavors" part of "organic natural flavors" goes at odds with the raspberry and lemon being either organic, or natural, or actual ingredients in the water.Like we said, some people take their sparkling water seriously. If you're one of them, check out our list of the 10 Best Sparkling Waters To Buy.Get the grocery news you need delivered to your inbox daily by signing up for the Eat This, Not That! newsletter.

The coronavirus crisis has you paying attention to widely circulated health information than ever. Some of it is essential and useful; some of it (particularly reports of home remedies or cures) is nonsense. And although much of the nonsense was quickly debunked, it got us thinking about how less-than-helpful health tips can endure through the years. Although none of these are as dangerous as drinking bleach—please don't do that—these are the top "health" tips you should stop following immediately. Read on, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated. 1 Don't Think You're Immune to Coronavirus if You Already Had It The CDC is still studying how you can develop immunity to the coronavirus—but having had it is no guarantee. "We do not know if the antibodies that result from SARS-CoV-2 infection will provide someone with immunity from a future infection," they report. "If antibodies do provide immunity, we don't know what titer or amount of antibodies would be protective or the duration that protection would last." 2 Don't Feed a Cold, Starve a Fever This folk remedy belongs in the past—there's no scientific basis for it. Your body runs a fever in response to an infection, and to recover from that illness, it needs plenty of nutrients, fluids and rest (including when you have coronavirus). When you're running a temp, eat as normal, or as close to that as you feel able. Definitely don't fast; you won't be doing your body any favors. 3 Don't Eat a Low-Fat Diet to Lose Weight Low-fat diets and processed foods became a craze in the 1980s. You know what else did? Obesity. Our bodies need fat to feel satiated—and some parts of the body, like the brain, are predominantly composed of fat and need it to function—otherwise, we just keep consuming calories. Ground your diet in lean protein and healthy fats, like the unsaturated kind in nuts, avocados and olive oil. Keep processed foods labeled "low-fat" out of your kitchen; they're likely packed with sugar. 4 Don't Avoid Eating Eggs to Protect Your Heart Like low-fat diets, another healthy-eating tip was gospel for decades: Avoid egg yolks; they're high in cholesterol, so they can raise your blood cholesterol level, which can contribute to heart disease. Today, we know that the cholesterol we consume from food has little effect on blood cholesterol levels, and eggs are back on the menu. They're a good source of protein, vitamin D and the B vitamins. Experts say it's safe to have two egg yolks daily. 5 Don't Get Your First Colonoscopy at Age 50 This used to be the guideline for the screening test for colorectal cancer. But rates of the disease have been rising in younger people—experts aren't sure why—so much that the American Cancer Society recently revised its guidance, suggesting that first screening begin at age 45. If you're approaching that age, talk with your doctor about what type of screening is best for you: a traditional colonoscopy, a less invasive test known as a flexible sigmoidoscopy, or a test that looks for blood in your stool. 6 Don't Think It's OK to Get Less Sleep As You Age Your parents and grandparents may have reported getting less sleep as they got older, but that doesn't mean it's a natural or healthy part of aging. Experts including the National Sleep Foundation say that adults of every age should get seven to nine hours of sleep nightly to keep your immune system in top shape and reduce your risk of chronic disease. 7 Don't Do a Detox The internet is rife with products promising to detox your body—diets, drinks, supplements, and on and on. The truth is, they're not necessary. The body has its own super-efficient detox system: the liver and kidneys. They'll detox your body just fine, as long as you support them with a proper diet, exercise and limiting your use of harmful substances like alcohol and tobacco. 8 Don't Do a Juice Cleanse Juice might make you feel good, but it won't "cleanse" your body. These regimens can also leave you feeling hungry, since juice eliminates satiating fiber from fruits and vegetables but keeps the sugar. 9 Don't Take a Multivitamin Daily Many of us have been taking a daily multivitamin since childhood, believing it's the route to better health. Unfortunately, there's no evidence that's the case. Last year, researchers from Johns Hopkins evaluated studies involving almost half a million people and determined that multivitamins don't lower your risk of heart disease, cancer, cognitive decline or early death. Their advice: Don't waste your money on multivitamins; get the vitamins and minerals you need from food. 10 Don't Think "Eight Glasses a Day" is the Magic Number This is another health tip that's been around so long it's gospel. And it's definitely a good idea to stay hydrated. But according to researchers at the Mayo Clinic, "eight a day" isn't right for everyone—some people might need less water, some might need more, particularly depending on your activity level and environment. A good rule of thumb: Drink water when you feel thirsty, and enough to keep your urine colorless or light yellow. 11 Don't Never Eat After 8 PM Although it's true that eating a large meal right before bed isn't a great idea—it can keep you awake and lead to acid reflux—your body doesn't automatically convert food into fat after a certain hour. In fact, some experts recommend having a small, protein-rich snack before bed to ensure a good night's sleep. 12 Don't Only Do a Lot of Cardio to Lose Weight Physical activity is key to maintaining a healthy weight (and overall health) and losing a few pounds if that's your goal. But spending hours on the treadmill can be counterproductive: Long periods of intense exercise causes the body to release cortisol, a stress hormone that tells it to hang on to fat. Instead of marathon cardio sessions, look into being more generally active and workouts like HIIT (high intensity interval training), which have been shown to be effective for fat loss. 13 Don't Count Calories to Stay Slim This used to be the golden rule of weight loss, but today experts advise concentrating on whole foods—including lean protein and healthy fats—and avoiding processed foods and added sugar instead of counting calories. The reasons? You'll feel less deprived, which will make it easier and more enjoyable to view your eating regimen as a healthy lifestyle change instead of something punitive. 14 Don't Take Vitamin C To Cure A Cold According to Harvard Medical School, taking vitamin C is only "marginally beneficial" when you have a cold—200 mg a day can reduce the duration of a cold by about 8%. But it's not a cure, and taking it daily won't reduce your risk of getting a cold.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers 15 Don't Drink Skim Milk to Lose Weight Diet experts once recommended avoiding full-fat dairy if you didn't want to gain weight. But research has shown that drinking full-fat milk—and consuming other full-fat dairy products like yogurt—can actually help keep your weight down. Why? It's more filling, so it helps keep you from consuming calories from other sources 16 Don't Think the Internet Knows Best We're awash in information these days, and it seems like everyone is looking for miracle cures and cutting-edge tips. But these can be downright dangerous if they don't come from legitimate sources and solid studies. Do your research online, but trust your doctors.

Although it may feel like the coronavirus pandemic is wrapping up fast, with COVID-19 vaccines being distributed, cases are actually rising: "The current 7-day moving average of daily new cases (69,577) increased 8.1% compared with the previous 7-day moving average (64,340)," according to the CDC's COVID Data Tracker Weekly Review. "The virus still "causes a concern." Read on for the 5 points every American needs to know to stay safe—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated. 1 The CDC Warns That the Current COVID Situation is "Complicated" "We are in a complicated stage of the COVID-19 pandemic," says the CDC's review. "Americans are being vaccinated every day at an accelerated pace. As of April 15, 2021, more than 125 million Americans have received at least one dose of vaccine, and more than 78 million Americans are fully vaccinated. And yet, COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations are increasing in some areas of the country, and among younger people who have not yet been vaccinated. The reasons for these increases are complicated but potentially related to emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants that are becoming predominant in some communities." 2 Those 18 to 64 are Being Hospitalized More "Nationally, COVID-19-related emergency department visits as well as both hospital admissions and current hospitalizations have risen among patients ages 18 to 64 years in recent weeks," says the CDC. "The good news is that emergency department visits and hospitalizations among people ages 65 years and older have decreased, likely demonstrating the important role vaccination plays in protecting against COVID-19. As of April 15, 80% of people 65 years or older have received at least one dose of vaccine and 63.7% are fully vaccinated." Hospitalizations are going up, sadly: "While new admissions have decreased considerably since their January peaks, the 7-day moving average has now been increasing for approximately 3 weeks." 3 There are More Variants Than You Might Think The variants you may have heard about are more prevalent that you might think: "Based on specimens collected through March 27, an estimated 44.1% of COVID-19 cases in the United States are caused by the SARS-CoV-2 variant B.1.1.7." That variant is wreaking havoc in many countries. "At least 40 cases of COVID-19 involving the B.1.1.7 variant have been traced to a 100-plus 'superspreader' outdoor party over the Easter weekend in the Maple Creek area of Saskatchewan, says the province's health authority," reports Canada's Global News. 4 The Daily Deaths are Rising "Although the 7-day moving average of daily new deaths has generally decreased for the past 13 weeks, the 7-day average of daily new deaths (712) increased 10.8% compared with the prior 7-day average," says the CDC. "As of April 14, 2021, a total of 561,356 COVID-19 deaths have been reported, including 831 new deaths." 5 How to Stay Safe During This Pandemic "As access to vaccines for all Americans increases, we have reason to be hopeful," says the CDC. "However, until more of the U.S. population is fully vaccinated, consistent use of prevention strategies, such as universal and correct use of masks, social distancing, and hand washing, will help to limit the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Even if you have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking these everyday precautions in public places." So get vaccinated as soon as you can, and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.

Oatmeal is a super-versatile food that many of us love to eat for breakfast, a snack, or even as a savory side dish. And while it's a great whole grain offering, oatmeal can be a problem if you have stomach issues, especially individuals with certain gastrointestinal issues like irritable bowel disease. One cup of oats contains a little over 8 grams of fiber."If you have a sensitive stomach, the fiber in the oatmeal may cause you to experience bloating and gas," says Roxana Ehsani, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Media Spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.If you can't tolerate lots of fiber or other high fiber foods, it might be best to skip the oatmeal and instead choose a lower fiber grain option."If a person is avoiding oatmeal due to its high fiber content and struggles to tolerate high fiber foods, they could choose cream of wheat, grits or white rice, which are all lower in fiber than oats," says Ehsani.And if you have celiac disease, be sure to look for gluten-free certified oats, as regular oats found in the cereal aisle may be contaminated with gluten, adds Ehsani.But ultimately, it's about what you're putting in your oatmeal that can lead to the biggest problems. (Related: The Unhealthiest Way to Prepare Oatmeal, According to a Dietitian.)"If you eat oatmeal and add sweetness like brown sugar, honey and/or maple syrup, you're increasing the amount of total calories and bumping up the total carbohydrates amount as well," says Ehsani. "[People] with pre-diabetes and diabetes may have to be cautious, as this may cause one's blood sugar to rise too high."This also can be a big issue with pre-packaged oatmeal."Be careful of those flavored oatmeal packets (pre-packaged or sweetened instant oatmeal). For example, oatmeal sold as maple syrup and brown sugar oatmeal, or strawberries and cream oatmeal, typically has a lot of added ingredients and sugar that makes the nutritious grain no longer nutritious," says Ehsani. "It's better to buy plain oatmeal and add your own nutritious toppings to it, like fresh fruit, nuts, seeds and/or nut butters and your own spices like cinnamon and cardamom to flavor up your bowl of oatmeal."But adding sugar isn't the only thing that can make your oatmeal unhealthy."If you eat oatmeal made with whole milk or cream, you are making your heart-healthy bowl of oats, no longer heart-healthy. Instead, you are increasing the amount of saturated fat, which is directly linked to increasing one's bad LDL-cholesterol," says Ehsani. "To keep your bowl of oats heart-healthy, instead make your oatmeal with fat-free milk, non-dairy milk like almond milk or water."Read more: Every Oatmeal in America in 2021—Ranked.For more healthy eating news, make sure to sign up for our newsletter!

The coronavirus vaccines are here, and with them a bit of hesitancy: Sure, they keep you safe from sickness, but can they make you sick, too? In a pair of interviews recently with singer Ricky Martin and football player Marshawn Lynch, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, laid out the side effects you can expect. Read the next 6 slides to see what you might feel, and why he says it's ultimately safe—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss this urgent news: Here's How You Can Catch COVID Even If You're Vaccinated. 1 You Might Feel a Sore Arm Perhaps the most common vaccine side effect, "when you get vaccinated, you get a sore arm for maybe a day," Dr. Fauci told Martin. This is similar to a flu vaccine. "Arm soreness in the hours and days following the injection is a normal response. It doesn't mean there's a problem or that the injection was given in the wrong spot," says a doctor at Kaiser Permanente. "Soreness is actually a good sign that your immune system is getting hard at work, making antibodies to protect against the virus. Any worries you may have about flu shot pain should pale in comparison to the concerns about getting the flu itself." 2 You Might Feel Fatigue "When you get the second dose, you can feel a fatigue," says Dr. Fauci. According to Novant Health: "Daniel Brewer, a neonatal nurse practitioner at Novant Health Hemby Children's Hospital, recommends a 'couch day' after the second dose. He said the onset of some expected effects began about 12 hours after getting vaccinated. Overnight, Brewer had chills, a headache and muscle and joint pain. He woke up the next day fatigued, but his symptoms resolved themselves in about 24 hours." "For me, it felt like my body was actively building antibodies or working on fighting something new, but I was comforted in knowing that these were potential effects ahead of time," Brewer said. "I definitely recommend a couch day the day following your second dose." 3 You Might Feel a Muscle Ache Dr. Fauci says you might feel a "little muscle ache." "As with many vaccines, there are some side effects"—according to critical care specialist Rachel Scheraga, MD—"but those side effects are relatively mild," says the Cleveland Clinic. "The side effects have mainly been arm soreness, fatigue, muscle aches, headaches and some instances of fever and chills. The data shows that side effects are more commonly felt after the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna's vaccine rather than after the first dose. With Johnson&Johnson, the most commonly reported side effects were arm soreness, headache, muscle aches and nausea. Most of the side effects occurred one to two days after vaccination." 4 These Side Effects Last About a Day Tops, Says Dr. Fauci "It virtually never lasts any more than 24 hours or so. And then it's fine. So it's a quite safe vaccine," says Dr. Fauci. The CDC says you might feel "tiredness, headache, muscle pain, chills, fever and nausea" in addition to the aforementioned arm pain. 5 Dr. Fauci Wants the Black Community to Understand the Vaccine is Safe Lynch asked Fauci if the vaccine would reduce his life expectancy, a worry he has as a Black man. "Well, let's answer that because they're all really, really a good question," said Dr. Fauci. "So what do we know—when we tested the vaccine in African-American and Hispanics, it was safe and it induced the kind of response that was literally identical to the response in whites. It was the same as whites. It was as safe as it was in whites, and it was effective as it was in whites." Not only that but "we know that when African-Americans get infected with this coronavirus, that they have a much greater chance of getting seriously ill and dying than whites do." All the more reason for that community to get vaccinated. 6 Dr. Fauci Said the Day Will Come When We Can All Hug Martin imagined a world where we could all hug one another. "That day will come. Ricky. I promise you," said Dr. Fauci. "Keep getting vaccinated. And until that time where you have a very low level of infection, continue to observe the public health measures." So follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.
