The Return of Safe Food? -- A New Law Overhauls the Handling and Processing of Food

Food-related injuries and death are often overlooked by the American consumer. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that nearly 48 million people get sick from foodborne illnesses yearly and almost 3,000 of those people die.1 The need for reform of the rules and procedures for the handling and distribution of food is evident by the increasing amount of outbreaks of foodborne illnesses. Most recently, both Blue Bell Ice Cream and Sunland Peanut Butter had to shut down their production facilities and recall thousands of products from the shelves of retailers.

How to Stay Safe While Using Fireworks This Fourth of July

Summer is in full force with Fourth of July this weekend and we are all excited to celebrate our Independence Day with parades, barbeques, and family gatherings. However, there is one thing that defines the Fourth of July in everyone's mind-fireworks. While we all enjoy the vibrant colors, the inspiring displays and the way they light up the night sky, fireworks-if used carelessly-can turn a fun experience into a tragic event.

Bicycle and Motorcycle Helmets Save Lives

Bike-riding is one of the most popular hobbies in the summer. Whether it be a bicycle or a motorcycle, it is one of the best ways to get outside and enjoy the sun. Riding a bike isn't all care-free and ease, though, as it comes with dangers when both drivers and bikers alike aren't attentive. In 2012 (the most recent year with data available), Illinois ranked fifth in the nation in bicyclist fatalities.1 Between 2010 and 2012, there were 80 deaths in Illinois in bike-related accidents. California was first with 338. Bicycle fatalities rose by 16% between 2010 and 2012, while motor vehicle deaths rose by only 1%. This speaks to the vulnerability of bicyclists who travel on the street.
