When Alex Ball was a teenager living with his family in downtown Romulus, the only grocery store in town closed down. 

“I’d never thought about food that much, but when the store closed down and our neighbors had no access to fresh food, I started wondering, ‘How can I fix this?'” Ball says. “So, at age 18, I started researching and reading and did some small-scale backyard farming.”

High junk food consumption in childhood increases risk of unhealthy body fat by early adulthood

With economic development, it would seem that undesirable side effects such as the mass production and consumption of highly processed junk foods, obesity, pollution and lifestyle diseases also increase in prevalence. A new paper published recently in the journal JAMA Pediatrics reports consistent and significant associations between the increased consumption of such ‘ultraprocessed foods’ by children in the UK, and a higher risk of obesity, increased body fat percentage, and overall body mass, by the time they reach young adulthood.

How New York’s To-Go Drink Restrictions Effect Bars and Customers

“I’m fucked,” Mike Vacheresse wrote to me.

I had just broken the news to him on Wednesday afternoon that the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) had abruptly—and with a tweet, no less—axed pandemic rules that had allowed bars and restaurants to offer to-go cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement ending the State of Emergency that began last March made New York one of only 13 states to end such orders and “return to normal.”
