Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:
Here’s today’s wrap-up from the world of health, Apples. Thanks for all your great support and feedback this week. Keep those suggestions and questions coming! Stay healthy and have a wonderful weekend!
We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Hormones
…in our milk. The latest Big Moo decision  is sure to please, although analysts on both sides of the issue wonder how significant the impact of hormones really is. It’s a good question – unfortunately, as of yet, there’s no clear answer, but this decision certainly won’t hurt.

Side Effects Include Death
Yeesh! The FDA issues a warning  for anemia drugs (the kind typically used for those who have undergone chemotherapy).
Don’t Have One This Weekend
Apparently, having a stroke over the weekend  is riskier than having one during the week. But don’t worry too much: studies show the risk varies between being 4% and 15% greater. While 15% is statistically significant, bear in mind it’s not 15% across the board (oh, fun with stats…). Our take? Since this isn’t really something you can plug into the Blackberry anyway, don’t sweat it too much.
And you thought productive leisure time was enough. This is a fascinating article  about scent, sleep and memory. Don’t miss it!
Locavores Vs. Organicans
Time has a great piece on the edible issue of going local versus going organic . The debate? What is better: eating an organic apple that traveled halfway around the world thanks to Middle Eastern oil, or munching a local yet pesticide-bedecked Red Delicious? It’s a tough call. What are your thoughts?
