DOES HONEY EVER GO BAD? ARE EGGS STILL SAFE AFTER THE EXPIRATION DATE? DO YOU HAVE TO WASH BAGGED SALAD THAT'S BEEN PREWASHED?

Does Pure Honey Ever Go Bad?



Question:  I have a bottle of pure liquid honey that’s starting to get thick and sugary on the bottom. Does this mean it has gone bad and I need to replace it? 

Answer: No — your honey should be fine, provided you’ve been storing it properly.

From a safety standpoint, commercially produced pure honey has a practically indefinite shelf life, says the National Honey Board. It’s not unusual for honey to crystallize over time —  but that doesn’t make it unsafe to use, adds the Honey Board.

That said, prolonged storage can potentially take a toll on the taste and appearance of honey. Besides crystallizing, your honey may also start to darken, change aroma and lose flavor after a couple of years. So it’s a good idea to check your honey from time to time, to see if it’s still satisfactory for your tastes.

As for honey that’s already crystallized, you can revive it by placing the opened honey jar in warm water and stirring until the crystals dissolve. Another option is to transfer the honey into a microwave-safe container, with the lid off. Microwave on medium-high power, stirring every 30 seconds, until the crystals dissolve.

To help keep honey at its best, be sure to store it in a cool, dark area and keep it tightly capped after each use. 

Are Eggs Still Safe After the Expiration Date?

Question: I have some eggs in the refrigerator that I’d like to use, but the date on the carton was a week ago. Are they still safe to eat?
Answer: Yes, your eggs should be fine, provided you’ve been storing them properly.
As the American Egg Board notes, the dates you see on egg cartons are not food safety dates. They are most commonly used as a guide for stores to know how long they can sell the eggs.
Raw eggs will maintain their best quality for about 3 weeks after the "sell by", "use by", "best by", or "expiration" date on the carton, assuming continuous refrigeration. 
Most cartons must also have a so-called Julian date stamped on the side, which indicates the date the eggs were packed. They will still be perfectly safe to use for at least 4 to 5 weeks after that date, provided they've been properly refrigerated and are not cracked or otherwise damaged. If you want to store your eggs for longer than five weeks, your best bet is to freeze them, following the instructions outlined here


Do You Have to Wash Bagged Salad That's Been Prewashed?

Question: I always buy “prewashed” bagged salad because it’s so convenient. But do I still have to wash it to be on the safe side?
Answer: No — as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration points out, you do not have to re-wash salads that are labeled as prewashed and ready-to-eat.  
In fact, by re-washing a prewashed bagged salad, you might actually be doing more harm than good, says the FDA. That’s because you could contaminate the already-clean salad by further handling it for instance, by forgetting to wash your hands before rinsing the salad or letting the salad come into contact with an unclean sink.
If you still feel the need to wash a prewashed salad, you should take care to avoid any cross contamination. That includes thoroughly washing your hands before rinsing the salad and cleaning any sinks, countertop and utensils that will come into contact with the salad before you wash it.

NATURAL SOLUTIONS for GOUT

How To Cure Gout in 24 Hours Naturally
Treating Gout with Cherry Juice
Here Is Information From Nature's Sunshine Website on Gout and the Supplement "Gout Fighter Plus" >
What is uric acid, and why is it important in gout?
Gout is a form of arthritis that occurs when high levels of uric acid in the blood lead to the formation of crystals in the joint, triggering the characteristic symptoms of pain, joint tenderness, and inflammation  -  often in the big toe. Once you’ve experienced an episode of gout, it’s highly likely you’ll experience more in the future. Therefore, taking steps to maintain healthy uric acid levels is important in addressing acute gout and helping to prevent its recurrence.

Tips for tackling gout
During an acute gout attack:
• Take 1 tablet of Nature’s Sunshine Gout Fighter Plus twice daily with food until symptoms subside
• Local ice therapy may help relieve acute pain

Take steps to lower your uric acid levels long-term:
•  Take 1 tablet of Nature’s Sunshine Gout Fighter Plus daily with food or as professionally advised
•  Cut back on alcohol – especially beer and spirits
•  Avoid soft drinks and other sugar-sweetened beverages
•  Instead, drink plenty of water to maintain hydration and help flush excess uric acid from the body
•  Decrease your intake of meat (especially offal) and seafood (particularly anchovies, mackerel, sardines, mussels and scallops) – these foods are rich in compounds called purines that can elevate uric acid.

TRUE OR FALSE? 90% OF MELANOMA SURGERIES UNNECESSARY

A new report claims that 90 percent of melanoma surgeries are actually unnecessary removals of benign lesions, raising questions about the accuracy of the “melanoma epidemic.” The report highlights the necessity to get a second, and perhaps even a third opinion from a specialized clinic before going under the scalpel. 

The American Academy of Dermatology recently made the bizarre claim that “UV rays are not very efficient in creating vitamin D in the skin. However, no corroborating evidence has been produced to back up this provocative statement.

UVB exposure has a number of other health effects unrelated to vitamin D production, including enhancement of mood and energy, melatonin regulation, suppression of MS symptoms, and the treatment of skin diseases.

Exposure to UVB light may also be protective against melanoma (the most lethal form of skin cancer), whereas UVA radiation is associated with skin damage.

SOME ORGANIC FACTS


USDA Organic

While organic standards are imperfect, manufacturers of organic products bearing the USDA seal have to meet the strictest standards of any of the currently available organic labels, so it's still your best assurance of organic quality. Keep in mind products can contain varying levels of organic ingredients:

  • Products labeled "100% Organic" must contain only organically produced ingredients and cannot contain preservatives or flavor enhancing chemicals, or traces of heavy metals or other contaminants in excess of tolerances set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).15 Livestock also cannot be given growth hormones
  • Products labeled "Certified Organic" or merely "Organic" must contain at least 95 percent organic ingredients
  • The label "Made with Organic Ingredients" can contain anywhere between 70 to 95 percent organic ingredients
To ensure you're actually getting your money's worth, look for the "USDA Organic" label. The use of the organic seal shown above is optional, but the label must clearly state “Organic.” The organic certification may not be perfect, but it is typically the best reassurance you can get if you do not know the direct source of your food.
Beware of brands that have “organic” in their brand name but don’t actually bear the USDA label, or brands that try to trick you with words that look like “organic,” such as “organix” or similar twists on the word. If it’s not clearly spelled out on the label, and spelled correctly, it’s not certified organic.
