In a preheated cast-iron skillet, Massie starts cooking the chorizo before quartering the blackest plantains he can find and adding them to the pan.

You can lead a man to water, but you can’t make him drink. Add sugar, salt, artificial flavors and a good story, and he’ll drink himself to death.

Since the early 1960s, sports-drink companies have worked to sell as many beverages as possible, and now the toughest market segment—people who just aren’t thirsty—has become the target thanks to clever advertising and sponsored research.

American Beverage Association sues San Francisco over health-warning language on ads for sugar-sweetened beverages.

It’s not the occasional 8-oz. soda that’s worrisome. It’s the fact that most people who drink soda guzzle much more than just one, noted Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition, food studies and public health at New York University.

“Some studies find that even one 12-ounce soda a day is associated with an increased risk for type-2 diabetes,”… Continue Reading
