Beach Beat: What are they thinking? They’re not — they’re eating rotten meat

Consider this a spoiler alert — literally.

Fads come and go, but miniskirts and disco didn’t carry the danger of severe food poisoning as does a new internet craze. Eating spoiled, rotting, raw meat is the latest health/high food, according to some online nuts. I would call them stupid, but Mom taught us that was an ugly word and not to be used.

The practice of eating spoiled raw meat to achieve a high is as nutty as huffing gasoline, as far as I’m concerned. Its purported nutritional or entertainment effects are far outweighed by the inherent dangers

Social media sites have recently included an increasing number of posts with photographs and videos of people performing this incredibly dangerous act. I say performing because who knows if the craze started as what people in news call a “bar bet.”

For those of you who never worked on a city desk … Read more

Peanut butter and peanut butter powder help transform a lunchtime classic into a homey but indulgent cake

This is the first official installment of For Goodness Cake, a monthly cake column from pastry chef Joy Cho. Each month we’ll give you a recipe for cake that is not only relatively easy to make but also rewarding and comforting. Because cake, we firmly believe, isn’t just for special occasions — it’s for celebrating the sweetness that can be found in every day life.

Peanut butter and jelly doesn’t take me back to third-grade bagged lunches or after-school snacks. It actually evokes close to zero childhood memories for me. I preferred other kid-friendly foods, like turkey sandwiches or Velveeta mac ’n’ cheese, when I wasn’t eating the Korean meals my mom or grandma prepared. Lunchables and Gushers were up my alley, but Uncrustables? Not so much.

Given this history (or … Read more

Researchers find different impact of related Salmonella types

Scientists have found Salmonella variants can have different effects on the health of pigs and the risks they pose to food safety.

Two closely related types of Salmonella Typhimurium, called U288 and sequence type (ST) 34, are particularly dominant in pigs and differed in colonization of the intestine and surrounding tissues and severity of disease they produced. The ST34 variant accounts for more than half of all UK human Salmonella Typhimurium infections, while U288 is rarely associated with human infection.

Professor Rob Kingsley from the Quadram Institute and professor Mark Stevens from the Roslin Institute worked with scientists at the Earlham Institute to look at common variants of Salmonella in pigs in the UK.

Using whole genome sequencing the research team found that the two types of Salmonella Typhimurium have been circulating in UK pigs since 2003. Researchers previously examined the emergence and spread of Salmonella in pigs.
