Food Safety Tips Help Prevent Food Poisoning

When getting together to cook for loved ones, the last thing you want is to get sick from the food you eat. Roberta Anding, a registered dietitian at Baylor College of Medicine, has a few tips to keep your food safe. • A l w a y s u s e a m e a t thermometer to check if meat is fully cooked. The color of the meat can’t determine the safety of the meat. All meat should be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly during food preparation. • Wash all produce before cutting and chopping. • Refrigerator leftovers within two hours. • Use a thermometer when reheating food as well. Following these basic guidelines will ensure that the food you serve is safe to eat, said Anding.

The Bulletin

Sinuses Can Be a Pain in the Head, Not Neck That troublesome headache might not be a migraine or brought on by tension. It could be caused by sinus trouble, said doctors at Baylor College of Medicine. “The sinuses work to humidify and cleanse the air, lighten the weight of the skull, and provide resonance to the voice. Sometimes, the sinuses fail to function correctly, leading to sinus pain caused by an infection or nasal congestion,” said Dr. Mas Takashima, assistant professor of otolaryngology at BCM and director of the Baylor Sinus Center. Sinus headaches usually occur along with congestion. Many things can cause sinus pressure and pain, such as sinus infections, nasal allergies, nasal polyps, septal deviations as well as enlarged vascular structures in the nose called turbinates. “Sinus pain can also be exacerbated by the weather or even plane travel as the pressure changes in the air around you,” said Takashima. Therapy is based on cleansing and decongesting the nose. This can be accomplished with something as simple as nasal irrigation using salt water. Steam, as found in a hot shower, may also provide decongestion and relief. If the problem is caused by infection then antibiotics are used. If it is allergy related, allergy medications may be prescribed. Occasionally surgery is required to keep the passages open.
