How Do You Know If You Have a Food Intolerance?

Maybe they don’t think of it as a food intolerance, but plenty of people have a food they just know sets them off. Maybe for you it’s a super-rich tomato sauce, or fresh cheese, or a cup of coffee. Whatever it is, housing some might leave you sweaty and unsettled. Or, perhaps worse, waking up with an upset stomach of the sort that has you rushing for the bathroom. No judgement! It’s a fact of life.

And while it’s easy to roll your eyes at many people’s rush self-diagnose—whether it’s pseudoscience about strawberries from Tom Brady or just that one friend who is only sometimes “not doing gluten right now”—people generally have a solid innate sense of what foods make them feel bad. Food intolerances are very real. So here’s how they work, and how to know if you have one. It’s not much more complicated than listening to your

It’s August now, and I’ve only used my grill three times. As a pescatarian, I usually opt for a veggie burger and some corn, but last weekend while staying with my boyfriend’s parents we had a dinner of homemade pita and delicious smoked salmon, I’ve been thinking about it ever since.

We Need to Take Care of the Growing Number of Long-Term COVID-19 Patients

On July 7, 2020, the Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez tested positive for the new coronavirus. He was scheduled to start Opening Day for the Sox, but the virus had other plans—damaging Rodriguez’s heart and causing a condition called myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle). Now the previously fit 27-year old ace left-hander must sit out the 2020 season to recover.

Rodriguez is not alone in having heart damage from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. In a new study done in Germany, researchers studied the hearts of 100 patients who had recently recovered from COVID-19. The findings were alarming: 78 patients had heart abnormalities, as shown by a special kind of imaging test that shows the heart’s structure (a cardiac MRI), and 60 had myocarditis. These patients were mostly young and previously healthy. Several had just returned from ski trips.

While other studies have shown a lower rate

ACC (Miami, FSU) and SEC (UF) forging ahead despite no football for Big Ten and Pac-12

The Atlantic Coast Conference, however, is full throttle for now.

At least that’s what Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is hoping.

‘Let’s listen to the teachers:’ NYC comptroller on school re-openings

To date, the city of New York, the most populous city in the U.S. and the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, has only received 12% of federal PPP loans. Like many cities and counties around the country, New York is counting on federal loan aid to help businesses and support in the reopening of public schools. NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer joined Yahoo Finance to discuss why the city needs a stimulus package that includes funding for education.

“We need to have a stimulus package that is also gonna include money for school re-openings; this is not a cheap undertaking,” he said.

“This is really a matter of putting dollars to work so that we can create a school plan that works for kids, whether it’s [online learning or] classroom learning. This is the challenge of every big city and every small county in America right now,” he stressed.

Global health agency urges vaccine safety trials

MIAMI — The Pan American Health Organization has expressed reservations over reports that institutions in the region were negotiating to manufacture and distribute a new COVID-19 vaccine announced by Russia that has yet to go through standard, extensive safety and efficacy trials.

The organization’s deputy director, Jarbas Barbosa, said in an online news conference Tuesday from Washington that any vaccine should be carefully evaluated to ensure the product is safe and effective.

In Brazil, Parana state’s government said it is negotiating with the Russian Embassy to participate in the development of a COVID-19 vaccine, and will be holding a technical meeting Wednesday with Russia’s ambassador.

Nicaragua earlier announced plans to produce a Russian vaccine and on Monday, Vice President Rosario Murillo, wife of President Daniel Ortega, again said the country was in contact with Russian institutions to produce and even export a COVID-19 vaccine.

Barbosa said the vaccine has not
