We haven’t lost the thread that low gasoline prices are helping American pocketbooks and businesses that consume fossil fuel. But we are also watching the effects on an oil and gas industry. And guess who’s warning loudly about the potential health effects of electronic cigarettes. More on that. Plus, all over the news today, a new study suggesting that whole grains in the diet is associated with people living longer. Eating healthier is also pushing people to cook more instead of just pulling something out of the freezer.
