This week is National Eating Disorders Week, a time to raise awareness of these conditions and their impact on people’s health, emotions and ability to lead fulfilling lives.
Each month, we set the facts straight on a health and wellness myth.
This month’s myth: Eating food that has fallen on the floor is safe.
Many of us have heard the rule. When that scrumptious slice of pie, cookie or candy drops on they floor, someone will yell, “Five-second rule!” to save you from having to throw it out.
On this week’s Carroll Hospital Health Chat, community nutrition educator Barb Walsh, R.D., talks about heart-healthy eating.
Listen to the Carroll Hospital Health Chat live every Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. on WTTR AM 1470/FM 102.3!
