As of January 1st--The Food and Drug Administration is putting restrictions on products that call themselves low-fat....including two-percent milk.

Pre-pro Low fat is defined as food containing 3 or less grams of fat per serving-- 2-percent milk has 5 grams of fat per serving.
Whole milk has 8 grams a cup, 1-percent contains 2-and a half grams and skim
milk has less then half a gram of fat---which makes it fat-free.


Renaming lower-fat dairy products also applies to: cottage cheese, sweetened condensed skimmed milk, low fat dry milk, evaporated skimmed milk, acidified low fat and skim milk, cultured low fat and skimmed milk, sour half and half and acidified sour half and half.

After half a decade of studying sleep habits--scientists have discovered sleep apnea is more severe in men 45-years or younger than in the elderly.

People with sleep apnea stop breathing for at least ten seconds, several times each night.
Researchers at Penn State's College of Medicine found that young men with sleep apnea had the lowest levels of saturated oxygen.
Over time, that can lead to high blood pressure and severe strain on the heart.
Up to 18 million Americans suffer from sleep apnea--and an estimated 38-thousand people die from complications each year.
