The Hamburg Journal is happy to provide the following business-related news from our area:

Summer Cooling preparing for hot summer The especially mild spring season has substantially increased the need for air conditioners in Community Action Council’s Summer Cooling Program. The program has 15 air conditioners on hand to distribute to families with low-income with medical conditions affected by the heat but typically needs 120 air conditioners to get through the season. “Summer Cooling is especially important during these hottest weeks of the year, and we want everyone to keep an eye on their sick and elderly neighbors” said Charlie Lanter, manager of program development. “The humidity and intense heat make it extremely difficult for those suffering with respiratory and cardiac illnesses.” The council, through Summer Cooling, loans air conditioners to low-income families whose doctors indicate they have a medical condition affected by heat. A contribution of $100 is enough for the council to place an air conditioner in someone’s home. Donations are accepted online, by check or money order or in person at any of our locations across Lexington-Fayette, Bourbon, Harrison and Nicholas counties. Checks are payable to Community Action Council. Please indicate that the donation is for the Summer Cooling Program. Donations are tax-deductible. Please mail donations to: Community Action Council, P.O. Box 11610, Lexington, KY 40576.
Prevent Injuries to keep the fun in summer Summer is here, kids are out of school and fun and freedom reign. But with every summer comes an increase of injuries ranging from minor bumps and bruises, to seri-
that a summer injury doesn’t spoil the fun. “A number of summertime injuries are preventable simply by taking some basic precautions,” said Ketan Merchant, Saint Joseph East emergency department physician. “Wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle, limiting sun exposure and drinking plenty of water are some simple preventative measures that can make a big difference.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approximately 570 Americans die every year from heat exposure. Kentucky has a warm humid climate and often experiences summer temperatures soaring well into the 90s, as well as a heat index over 100 degrees making heat-related illness a serious threat. Some simple, yet effective steps can help prevent sun and heat-related injury and illness. • Drink two to five times more than the usual of water. • Use sunscreen rated SPF-15 or higher and reapply often. • Remember that the sun is strongest between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., so limit time outside during these hours. Choose cooler, early morning or evening hours for outdoor activities. • Limit physical activity. If exertion is required, take frequent breaks. Heed warning signs such as a pounding heart or shortness of breath, and stop to rest. • Never leave a child or pet unattended in a car. Temperatures inside a vehicle can heat to life threatening temperatures in a matter of minutes. It is also important to avoid sunburns, a significant risk factor in the development of skin cancer. According to the CDC, Kentucky had the sixth highest melanoma death rate nationally from 2002-2006.
and rehab at University of Louisville, and medical director of Frazier Rehab Institute, part of KentuckyOne Health. “Many people assume that a concussion is minor, but a concussion/traumatic brain injury can have long-term effects like physical disability, pain, cognitive disabilities and more.” To prevent injury, keep this advice in mind during summer activities: • All play equipment should be an appropriate height for each child. Tree houses should never be more than 10 feet in the air. • Protective gear is a must. Be sure to outfit children with activity-appropriate protective gear, like bike helmets or shin guards for soccer, whenever they engage in these activities. Protective gear should also be worn while riding ATVs and other motorized vehicles. • When engaging in water activities, be mindful of the water’s depth. “There are many dangers present in the water, whether it be a lake, river, pond or pool,” said Dr. Merchant. “Pay close attention to your children, wear life vests and be sure of the water’s depth before diving.” Drowning is the second leading cause of death in children, and most happen occur in supervised household pools. Part of the problem is that children who are drowning do not look like they are drowning. The splashing, gasping image we have from TV and movies is simply not correct. Dr. Merchant warns, “Drowning is most often quiet, with no noise or hand waving. They may not be able to signal help or keep their mouth above water long enough to call out. They may look like they are climbing an invisible
ladder just below the surface of the water or attempt to

KentuckyOne Health grants $100,000 for cancer screenings KentuckyOne Health, the largest health system in the commonwealth, has announced a $100,000 gift to the Kentucky Cancer Foundation to support colon cancer screenings for low income, uninsured Kentuckians between the ages of 50 and 64.
ville Hospital, a KentuckyOne facility, has agreed to partner with the Kentucky Cancer Foundation to provide screening services to individuals who qualify through the program. Screenings are also available at these 10 health departments throughout the state:
Over the past two years, Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear and the General Assembly committed $1 million through June 2014 to 10 health departments throughout the state to expand colon cancer screening services for Kentuckians at risk. Governor Beshear challenged the Kentucky Cancer Foundation to raise matching funds for the program.
• Louisville Metro Health Department • Barren River District Health Department • Calloway County Health Department • Christian County Health Department • Fayette County Health Department • Floyd County Health Department • Greenup County Health Department • Jessamine County Health Department • Lake Cumberland Health Department • Pike County Health Department
The Kentucky Cancer Foundation’s matching fund is a very unique private-public partnership to support the state’s cancer action plan. The initiative is designed to help more Kentuckians access crucial screening services. In addition to the $100,000 commitment from KentuckyOne, University of Louis-
“Simply put, more screenings will prevent cancer and save lives,” said Crit Luallen, member of the board of the Kentucky Cancer Foundation and a colon cancer survivor. “We are grateful for the support and leadership of KentuckyOne Health in this important effort to provide critical screenings for Kentuckians.”

Food show celebrates fifth year Kentucky Proud event welcomes celebrity chefs Bobby and Jamie Deen The Kentucky Proud Incredible Food Show, now in its fifth year, will return to Lexington Center and Rupp Arena on Saturday, October 26, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This year’s celebrity chef cooking demonstration will feature Bobby and Jamie Deen, who along with their mother Paula Deen, founded a small Savannah, Georgia catering business known for delivering “lunchand-love-in-a-bag” which grew into one of Savannah’s most-loved restaurants, The Lady & Sons. Tickets to the Incredible Food Show will go on sale on June 7 at 10 a.m. at the Lexington Center Ticket Office at (859) 233-3535 and Ticketmaster.com. Presale tickets to the $40 reserved section for the Deen brothers presentation will start on Tuesday, June 4 at 10 a.m. Non-reserved, general admission tickets are $20 and include admission to the 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. show as well as all seminars, demonstrations and The Marketplace
exhibit hall. Bobby Deen New York Times best-selling author and Cooking Channel star Bobby Deen has long been an essential ingredient in the recipe that has made his mother Paula Deen an American hospitality and cooking icon. The warmth, humanity and kindness that are so much a part of his mother Paula Deen’s persona are really family traits that were passed on to Bobby and his older brother Jamie. In 2013, Deen’s new book “From Mama’s Table to Mine” debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller list and his show “Not My Mama’s Meals,” airs on both the Food Network and the Cooking Channel. In both his new book and on his show, Bobby brings some of his family’s favorite southern recipes to the table with his healthier, lighter approach to cooking. Jamie Deen Jamie Deen is an entrepreneur, business-
man and author. In June 2012, Jamie became host of “Home for Dinner with Jamie Deen,” on The Food Network. For Jamie, it’s all about food and family, and this show puts his personal and professional skills to the test to create great family dinners. Jamie’s oldest son, Jack, also often visits
the show to help put finishing touches on the meal. Keeping in line with his familyfriendly show, he will release “Jamie Deen’s Good Food” cookbook in September 2013. For more information, visit www.incrediblefoodshow.com

Fish: The good, the bad and the unhealthy
f you and your friends are out on the lakes this summer trying to make a catch, you may want to be wary of which fish you keep versus the fish you toss back into the water. We all know that fish are a great choice of lean healthy protein and the oily kinds such as tuna, sardines, salmon, etc., are packed with Omega 3 fatty acids, which help to reduce inflammation in our bodies cells which helps burn calories. But we shouldn’t assume that all types of fish are safe. Photo by: Earlane Cox

Dangers of Mercury Many fish species have high levels of mercury – an unsafe contaminant that can affect the nervous system. Mercury from pollution and that naturally occurs in the atmosphere settle in our oceans, lakes and streams, where they are consumed by fish and then converted to the toxin, methyl mercury. Fish that are high on the food chain consume other contaminated fish, increasing their mercury levels. Infants and young children are especially susceptible to mercury’s effects because their nervous systems are still developing. However, adults who have high exposure levels can experience significant central nervous system damage as well. Pregnant and nursing women are also advised to be extremely careful about choosing the types of fish to eat. Proceed with Caution When making our fish selections, we need to consider the following: contamination, sustainability and which ones promote Omega-3 fats. The following are some examples of fish that you should “toss back” and avoid eating. Due to their high content of contaminants, level of depletion and risk to the environment, they are at risk of being removed from many restaurant menus:
• Bluefin tuna: Because it is a threatened species, it is now protected. Bluefins have high levels of mercury and levels of PCB (environmental pollutants). • Chilean sea bass: Prized for its buttery meat, it has been fished to near depletion and the methods used to catch them are very destructive to the environment. Due to its high levels of mercury, adults shouldn’t eat more than 2 meals per month and children 12 and under less than 1 meal per month. • Grouper: This fish can live to be up to 40 years, reproduce over a short amount of time and is vulnerable to overfishing. It also contains high levels of mercury which has caused it to have a consumption warning. • Monkfish: It has a light, fresh taste and has become a fast favorite with its numbers depleting quickly. • Orange roughy: This fish, which also contains high levels of mercury, lives a long life and is slow to reproduce making it vulnerable to overfishing. • Salmon (farmed): Most farmed salmon are raised in tightly packed, open net pens often filled with disease and parasites. They are fed fishmeal and antibiotics to combat diseases and have PCB levels high enough to rate a consumption warning. Healthy Fish How do you choose fish that are good for you and the environment? Several organizations keep track of which fish are low in mercury and other toxicants, aren’t endangered and still manage to benefit your heart and brain health. Seafood Watch, a program run by the Monterey Bay Aquarium, came up with a list of the top fish that met the above requirements. Some of the top ranking fish are: • Albacore tuna: One of the few tuna that is lower in mercury. Smaller fish (<20 lbs) have much lower contaminant ratings and higher Omega-3 counts.
• Wild-caught Alaskan salmon: These are closely monitored with strict quotas and careful water management quality making them healthier. ( 1,210 mg of Omega-3s per 3oz serving) • Oysters (farmed): A 3-ounce serving contains over 300mg of Omega-3s and about a third of the daily value of iron. Oysters are also good for the environment because they feed off of the algae in the water which improves water quality. • Wild caught Pacific sardines: This inexpensive superfood packing more Omega-3 than salmon, tuna or just about any other food at an impressive 1,950mg per 3oz serving is also very high in Vitamin D. • Rainbow trout: Nearly all trout found in supermarkets is farmed rainbow trout. In the U.S., rainbow trout are farmed primarily in freshwater ponds where they are protected from contaminants and fed a fine-tuned diet. • Freshwater Coho salmon: The first and only farmed salmon to get a Super Green rating, Coho salmon are raised in closed freshwater pens and require less feed reducing the environmental impact. Coho are also a healthy source of Omega-3s, one ounce serving containing 1,025mg. In short, be selective with which fish you choose to include in your diet. High in Omega-3 fatty acids and protein, fish are the perfect choice for lunch and dinner as long as you limit the amounts. If you would like help with setting up your personal nutritional plan to successfully lose those unwanted pounds, call Medical Bariatrics of Lexington at 859-263-SLIM (7546). MBL is the home of Lexington’s only board certified, nonsurgical bariatricians. Our bariatricians will meet with you at every visit and modify your weight loss plan to meet your specific needs.
