Minneapolis Star-Tribune (Aug. 8)
Finally, Good News about Kids' Health: Cholesterol Down
The findings "cannot be interpreted as anything but good news," says Rae-Ellen Kavey, professor in the Department of Pediatrics. Kavey acknowledges that she finds some of the changes inexplicable, but does not question their significance, since improvements were seen in kids of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, and even among children who were already obese.

Online Food Order Apps

The concept of ordering food online or using a smartphone app has made dinner easy. But it can also make it more costly, and less healthy. A recent study from the University of Rochester evaluated 160,000 online orders to a North Carolina pizza chain over the course of four and a half years. Those online orders came with higher costs and more calories.
