I thought this was interesting but I don’t want to make you think twice the next time someone blows the candles out on a birthday cake - but you might just want to think twice before eating a piece of birthday cake after reading this.

Here is an abstract done by the Journal of Food Research:

"This study examined the potential spread of bacteria when blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Preliminary tests of blowing on nutrient agar indicated that bioaerosols in human breath expelled from the mouth may be a source of bacteria transferred to cake surfaces.

To test aerosol transfer to cake, icing was spread evenly over foil then birthday candles were placed through the foil into a Styrofoam™ base. After consuming pizza, test subjects were asked to extinguish the candles by blowing. Icing samples were sterilely recovered then surface plated, to determine the level of bacterial contamination.

Blowing out the candles over the icing surface resulted in 1400% more bacteria compared to icing not blown on. Due to the transfer of oral bacteria to icing by blowing out birthday candles, the transfer of bacteria and other microorganisms from the respiratory tract of a person blowing out candles to food consumed by others is likely."

Here’s the link to the abstract. From this page, you can also view the full text in PDF format:

If you’re pregnant and experiencing morning sickness, I know how awful it can be but it will get better for most of us as time goes on. Morning sickness can vary from person to person and can actually happen for many any time during the day.

Can you prevent morning sickness? “According to the Mayo Clinic, there is no proven way ….” They do say, however, “Before conception, it may help to take prenatal vitamins.” That “……. older studies suggest women who take multivitamins at the time of conception and during early pregnancy are less likely to experience severe morning sickness.”

There are some home remedies that can help and again they can vary from person to person on how well they work.

Saltine crackers and sipping on ginger ale will often help with nausea. If you’re feeling dehydrated and are having a hard time keeping much down, try crushing ice cubes and sucking on those.

Getting a Better Night’s Sleep

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that adults aged 18 to 60 should get at least 7 hours sleep at night to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Lack of sleep consistently can lead to issues such as: sleep deprivation, high blood pressure and a low sex drive to just name a few.

If you find it hard to sleep at night and you’re looking for ways to sleep better, there are some simple solutions you can try.

I remember my Mom making me warm milk when I was a kid and couldn’t sleep. It always seemed to soothe me and relax me. You can try this same remedy with regular milk or you can try almond milk. Both are excellent sources of calcium which helps make melatonin and melatonin controls the sleep/wake cycles in your body.

Magnesium is a very important mineral. One of its most important functions is relaxing your muscles. Magnesium can also help to reduce your blood pressure and it acts as an anti-inflammatory, all of which will help treat insomnia.

Lavender essential oil can also help ease anxiety and insomnia. One option is to sprinkle 3 or 4 drops on a cotton ball and place this under your pillow. Another option is to take a warm soothing bath before bed - add 2 to 3 drops lavender to help relax your body and mind.

We all, at some time or another, have had chapped lips. Maybe some not so bad and some probably more extreme.

Some remedies for chapped lips are obvious like drinking plenty of water and not biting your lips.

Some remedies you might not have thought of like being deficient in certain vitamins.

We can’t prevent our kids from catching a cold, they are bound to catch the bug but there are things we can teach our kids in the hopes of preventing colds from happening so often. The simple act of washing hands often throughout the day can lessen the amount of germs they pick up thus lessening the chance of infecting themselves with a viral infection.

Vitamin D

Winter is just a hop, skip and jump away and with shorter days and bundling ourselves up to go outside, are we going to get enough vitamin D?

For many of us probably not from the sun which is where the best source of vitamin D comes from – the midday sun. What is vitamin D good for?

It’s important to help prevent many conditions such as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, maintaining strong and healthy bones and teeth in kids and adults.

Vitmain D comes from sunlight but because of the concerns of skin cancer, many of us don’t get enough from the sun. Other forms of vitamin D come in supplement form and the foods we eat. If you’re concerned if you have enough vitamin D, talk to your doctor and with a simple blood test you’ll know.

Labels are confusing when it comes to food expiration dates - Sell By, Best if Used By, Use By – What? Do these dates mean we need to toss food out on this date? Does it mean stores need to take a product off the shelf on this date? Is it only indicating freshness and quality of a product?

This Introduction to Food Expiration Dates might help answer a few of these questions as well as other factors that can cause food to spoil before an expiration date.

Food won't last forever but I don't like being wasteful, most things really do last beyond the Sell By, Best if Used By, and Use By dates.
