Current Nutritional Labelling is Difficult to Follow

Posted by on Apr 7, 2016

If you’re like most shoppers, then chances are, a trip to the grocery is usually unplanned, quick, and sometimes, not very fruitful when it comes to making healthy choices. Much of the blame can be attributed to current nutrition labelling which is ineffective, according to a study by McGill University. The study, published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, found that other labelling systems are more efficient. Researchers compared four different systems, finding that the one most frequently used in the US and Canada is the least useful for buyers.  This system lists percentages of the daily value of specific nutrients. Although the labels do provide exhaustive information, they can be confusing and can be difficult to compare in terms of nutritional value to similar products. Another system called NuVal, which indicates the overall nutritional value of products with a single score between 1-100, is used in some products in the US and Canada. Researchers found this system to be much easier to follow, since it does away with the need to ascertain the health values of foods...

Gigantic Watermelon Slicer Tested

Posted by on Jul 3, 2015

BS TESTS has been awfully quiet until this most recent injustice awakened the Bull into a snarling mess of disappointment. This is a Watermelon Slicer that was purchased at Sam’s Club last summer and was never used until recently.  Currently it is not available and hopefully that will save you from making the mistake of throwing away ten plus dollars. First, the instructions suggest cutting both ends of the melon.  I guess without the old watermelon cutting knife that seem to work just fine, step one would not be possible.  This may also require a cutting board and lots of paper towels.  The flatter the end cut, we have learned the better it works.   Step 2: Place it on its circular juice catching tray, which oddly has a whole in the center so that the maximum amount of sticky juice squirts through it, onto your counter top. Step 3: Press the blades on top of the cut melon and push with as much force as you can humanly muster.  This may not be enough.  I can assure you this is...

Deflecting – Antonio Branco

Jun 17, 2016

  Branco describes himself as “somewhere between the Far Side and the right side of every issue.” He sits at his desk daily crafting comically and politically-incorrect cartoons that say with humorous satire what conservatives really think, but lack the opportunity to say to a broad audience. After years of listening to the squeaky wheel of the left advancing the cause of radicalism, Branco decided to use the power of his bully palette to advance the conservative movement. Conservatives worldwide can be glad he did. According to Branco, “The art and humor of political cartoons has since the dawn of the Republic been a way to sway those who might not otherwise be persuaded.” Read more at...
