Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month

Reports show that in the United States for 2014, about 62,900 new thyroid cancer cases will be diagnosed. Medullary thyroid cancer is a rare form of cancer located in the thyroid gland at the base of the throat, which represents about three to four percent of all thyroid cancers. Since it is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month, AstraZeneca has launched the online resource center to provide information and support specifically designed for people living with advanced medullary thyroid cancer (aMTC) and their loved ones. This site allows people to understand the hurdles associated with this rare disease, and comfort those who have it.

Electricity Bills Increase in America Due To Proposed EPA Regulations

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed sweeping regulations that would require states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity sector by an average of 30 percent nationally. This costly plan is another step in the administration’s policies designed to eliminate low cost and reliable electricity and replace it with expensive and less reliable sources. The impact of this regulation will be felt by all Americans, as the electricity bills will become expensive.

Win Your Own FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealer

I recently checked out the FoodSaver® 2-in-1 Vacuum Sealing System, which I never thought would be very useful. When I usually buy meat and fish in bulk or have extra vegetable and fruits from the garden I like to freeze, but bagging them or putting in containers don't usually keep the produce fresh. When I tested and used the FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealer, I was impressed how easily I can freeze both cooked and uncooked meat, fish, vegetables, and fruits. FoodSaver® preserves food five times longer than other storage methods like Ziploc bags.
