No More Gold Stars for Fidgeters

Remember that “news” a while back that fidgeting was supposedly some glorious fountain (pen) of health? Well, it’s not. Blogger Bethany, we love thee.

The Chicken We Think We’re Eating

This is clickativity for readers with iron stomachs only. For our more sensitive apples, you may want to move on to Bill’s latest adventures (see below). Oh, wait…

Anyway, back when ye ole Daily Apple was but a seed in Sisson’s mind, we were seriously perturbed by the early research we were digging up. Perturbation #1? The fact that most commercial chicken breasts – the kind that go into McDonald’s sandwiches, for example – are up to one-fourth water and chemicals and salt. We thought this fake pumpery was ridiculous, but this (click at your own risk!) is simply unacceptable. When Russia won’t import your chicken, something has to be done!

Peep this: the little squawker is not down.

And…

Ready for This? Are You Sure? It’s Big!

The Senate has passed a bill requiring the FDA to monitor Big Pharma in a meaningful way. You loyal apples know we are always in a hot fuss over FDA corruption, so we couldn’t be more thrilled about this positive news. Your elected skittles have determined that the FDA must not only monitor Big Pharma more closely, but that all clinical trials must be reported in a public database. Translation: no more reporting only the results that are desirable. It’s about time!
