Please ignore: Katy Perry drinks apple cider vinegar

Whenever I visited my grandparents, this bored kid would check out the tabloids lying around, the real news of the world, the National Enquirer.

apple.cider.vinegarGlamour magazine reports (???) that Katy Perry recently opened up about the reason she says she’s been able to work so tirelessly: She drinks unpasteurized apple cider vinegar.

The singer tells SELF that she started drinking Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar for her health on the advice of her mom while growing up. Instead of having soda, she’d drink the vinegar, which contains the “mother,” i.e., stringy strands in the vinegar where probiotics and other nutrients are found.

This BS has been flogged for centuries.

Don’t take food advice from celebrities.

Don’t take any advice

Enjoy their, um, art.



Nothing about choosing wisely: USDA sings Katy Perry to promote food safety

As millions of Americans prepare to eat takeout on Super Bowl Sunday, the Agriculture Department is turning to the game’s half-time entertainment to help promote food safety.

katy_perry_roarIn a blog titled “Hot N Cold”: A Katy Perry Guide for Food Safe Take-Out” the USDA embedded lyrics from some of the pop star’s hits to help get its message out to the 48 million people eating takeout and delivered food during the Super Bowl Feb. 1.

“When you hear your guests’ stomachs ‘ROAR,’ it’s time to order take out,” the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said, referring to “Roar,” one of Perry’s hit singles. “Avoid having your guests calling the doctor for food poisoning by following these quick tips for food-safe takeout.”

The USDA used one of Perry’s early hits, “Hot N Cold,” to remind consumers how to handle cold and hot foods to avoid food poisoning.

Perry is to perform during half time of the Super Bowl game between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots (if they’re still there after ballgate).

8 cases of salmonella confirmed at Ohio school

Clearview High School in Ohio sounds like the ideal setting for a Proactiv commercial. Katy Perry or Avril Lavigne (right, pretty much as shown) could shoot their next acne removal spot at the high school while disinterested teens go about their business – or barf in the background like 100 students from the school did a couple of weeks ago.

In one of the slowest investigations of a possible foodborne illness outbreak,
The Morning Journal reports Lorain County Health Department officials have confirmed eight cases of Salmonella B at Acne-High, believed to be connected with a dinner served to the football team two weeks ago.

Health Commissioner Ken Pearce said,

“Our focus is on that little football dinner. But it’s not confirmed that that’s what caused it.”??

Last week, health investigators interviewed Clearview students to find any commonalities in sickness and collected voluntary stool samples. Pearce said not all the illnesses were related to diarrhea and norovirus has been discounted.
