Going Fishing? Catch and Release or Make a Meal

2016 Ohio Sport Fish Consumption Advisory Reflects Changes in Water and Fish Tissue Quality…………….

Ohio has issued new guidelines for eating fish caught in lakes, rivers and streams, reflecting notable improvements in the waters of the state.

Among the improvements highlighted in the statewide study: freshwater drum caught from the Huron River may now be eaten once per week; advisories against eating common carp from the Big Darby Creek, North Branch Portage River, and Mahoning River have been lifted and are now one per month advisories; Acton, Chippewa, Kiser, Knox, Logan, Paint Creek, Sippo, and White lakes, as well as Findley #2, Griggs, Salt Fork, and Wills Creek reservoirs, along with the Black Fork Mohican River and Bad, Nimishillen and North Turkeyfoot creeks also were identified as improved for certain species. (See below for the complete table of changes to this year’s advisories.)

Fish can be part of a healthy diet and evaluations of fish tissue are showing some places where anglers can eat all of certain varieties of fish that they can legally catch. Unless otherwise notated in the new recommendations, a general advisory is in place that recommends limiting one meal each week of Ohio-caught fish.

Ohio EPA partners with the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to develop consumption advisories for fish caught in Ohio. A total of 885 fish tissue samples collected from 51 lakes and 26 streams in 2014 and 2015 form the basis for the new advisories. Fish consumption evaluations help Ohio anglers make informed decisions about consuming their catch.

Additional information about fish consumption safety for women of child-bearing age, pregnant and nursing mothers, and children under 15 can be found at the Women, Infant and Children (WIC) Centers, local health departments, Ohio EPA and Ohio Department of Natural Resources regional offices.

 

The 2016 fish advisory information is available online and printed copies can be requested by calling (614) 644-2160.

Roberts Donates for Health Campus Break Room

North Baltimore’s Briar Hill Health Campus had a recent remodeling project that was a gift from the family of two former residents at the care center.

by JP Miklovic

North Baltimore’s Briar Hill Health Campus had a recent remodeling project that was a gift from the family of two former residents at the care center.

The gift was a remodeling of the Break Room, which was gifted by Mr. & Mrs. William H. Roberts and Jane E. Leggiero, with many thanks to the Briar Hill staff who took such good care of Dr. Roberts and Ingrid Roberts. The donated money put some much needed TLC into the campus break room.

A plaque is mounted with the new television. Also the break room paint was touched up and new employee lockers were installed. Everything looks fantastic!

Below: Jen Fackler, Brenda Rice and Patti Gazarek enjoy a break in the improved break room.

Doc Robert’s son, Bill commented on how well the staff took care of Doc and “Ing”. (It wasn’t just because most people knew Ing and almost everybody knew Dad—the Briar Hill staff took wonderful care of all of their patients.)

One memory Bill shared was, “Some may remember Dad and Ing’s yellow lab, Ivory—she often came to visit at the health campus. This was good for her as well as good for Doc & Ing. The staff quickly adopted Ivory as a volunteer therapy dog and we would hang around the lobby while people made much of her.”

The Briar Hill Staff thanks the Roberts’ family for their generous support!

Parenting Press: Teach Your Child Fire Safety

Show kids how to use a coat or blanket to smother flames on another person’s clothes……..

Tip–Have regular fire drills in your home with your family. A child trained in fire safety is a safer child.

Link to book description

It is very good sense to teach children of all ages fire safety. According to the National Fire Protection Association, children 5 and younger are more than twice as likely to die in fires as older children and adults. Fire safety education can save lives.

Tools–The following suggestions and information are drawn from Kids to the Rescue! First Aid Techniques for Kids and from the National Fire Protection Association.

  • Matches and lighters are for adults only. Tell children these are tools, and they are only for grown-ups. Children should never touch them. If they find them, or see another child touching them, they should tell a grown-up right away.
  • You can’t hide from fire. Many children die in fires because they try to hide from smoke or flames rather than escape. Tell children they cannot hide, but they can get out. Role play with them your own fire escape plan. Teach them the phrase, “Get out and stay out.” Tell them never to reenter a burning building.
  • Know what a smoke alarm sounds like. Children need to recognize the sound of a smoke alarm and react immediately. Conduct a fire drill, using a smoke alarm to signal the escape.
  • Have an escape plan. Hold fire drills frequently. Everyone should know at least two ways out of every room and be familiar with all exits, including windows. Decide on a meeting place outside where everyone should gather.
  • Stop, drop, and rollStop, drop, and roll. Teach children the classic remedy for burning clothes:

    Stop–where you are–don’t run.
    Drop–to the ground.
    Roll–cover your face with your hands and roll over and over, or back and forth to smother the flames.

    Show kids how to use a coat or blanket to smother flames on another person’s clothes. Role play the procedure.

  • Crawl low under smoke. Teach children to find another exit if they come up against smoke or flames while trying to escape a fire. Teach them to crawl low under smoke, with their head one to two feet above the floor. To simulate smoke during a fire drill, you can stretch a bed sheet two feet above the floor–have the children crawl under the “smoke” to the exit.

You’ll find more practical tips you can use right now in Kids to the Rescue! First Aid Techniques for Kids by Maribeth and Darwin Boelts.

 

Chowline: How to use the ‘5-20’ rule for healthy choices

Daily Value percentages aren’t listed for everything on the label…….

I’ve never been a fan of Nutrition Facts labels, but a friend recently mentioned that she reads them all the time, using something called the “520 rule.” What is the 520 rule?

Ah, she was talking about what is known as the ”5-20 rule,” and it applies to the Daily Value percentages that are listed on the label.

Basically, it’s just a quick guideline to use when you look at those percentages to determine how a food might fit into your daily dietary goals.

Any nutrient listed as 5 percent or less of the Daily Value is considered low. Any listed as 20 percent or more of the Daily Value is considered high.

For nutrients you want to limit, such as saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, try to choose foods with low Daily Value percentages. Foods with 5 percent or less would be great choices, while it would be smart to limit foods with 20 percent or more.

For nutrients you want to get enough of, such as fiber, vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron, look for foods with 20 percent or more of the Daily Value. A food with 5 percent or less of the Daily Value for those nutrients simply isn’t a good source of them.

By now, you are probably wondering, “What the heck is a Daily Value?” Simply put, the Daily Value is a generic nutrient-intake standard based on a 2,000 calorie-a-day diet. For key nutrients, the Nutrition Facts label provides percentages of the Daily Value that a serving of the food contributes toward the daily total.

In reality, daily nutrient recommendations depend on your age and gender. However, it’s not practical to have different food labels for each individual group, so Daily Values are used instead. Still, it could be important for you to know where your needs vary.

For example, the Daily Value for calcium is 1,000 milligrams, so a food with 300 milligrams of calcium in it would have a Daily Value percentage of 30 percent. But teenagers need 1,300 milligrams of calcium a day, and women 51 and older and men 70 and older need 1,200 milligrams a day. So, even if you consume 100 percent of the Daily Value of calcium, you still might not be getting enough.

Sodium is similar. The Daily Value for sodium is 2,400 milligrams, but that might be too much for some people, especially those with hypertension.

Daily Value percentages aren’t listed for everything on the label. For example, you won’t see a percentage for trans fats, because, basically, there is no level of trans fat that’s recommended for consumption. You should keep it as close to zero as possible.

Also, a Daily Value percentage for protein is listed only when a food makes some type of claim for protein, such as a high-protein breakfast bar. In those cases, the percentage is based on a total Daily Value level of 50 grams of protein a day.

Once you start examining the Daily Values, you can find yourself getting lost in a bit of a rabbit hole. But you don’t need to know all the nitty-gritty to make them useful. Just use the percentages — and the 5-20 rule — to make comparisons between foods to help you make the best choices.

OEFFA Urges Constituent Action

Last week, Ohio Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown joined the majority of the Senate to pass a GE labeling “compromise” bill. Unfortunately, that compromise gave away the store! It was extremely disappointing to all of us who have worked toward an honest and transparent labeling system for GE food.

Last week, Ohio Senators Rob Portman and Sherrod Brown joined the majority of the Senate to pass a GE labeling “compromise” bill. Unfortunately, that compromise gave away the store! It was extremely disappointing to all of us who have worked toward an honest and transparent labeling system for GE food.
The Roberts-Stabenow GE “non-labeling” bill, is so riddled with loopholes and problematic definitions that it is likely to be challenged in court. Even the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Food and Drug Administration are also at odds over the bill.
Worse yet, it disadvantages rural, low-income, and elderly people who may lack the smart phones and data plans required to scan each item and visit a website for information before each purchase.
Despite all of the problems and concerns, powerful biotech lobbies have been very successful at fast tracking this bill. It will be voted on in the House this week and then sent to the President’s desk.
President Obama can either sign or veto the bill or neglect to sign it while Congress is in session (a pocket veto).

Call the President today: (202) 456-1111

Tell him to veto this bill and keep his campaign promise to allow the public their right to know what they eat. 

Chowline: An ear of corn A-OK as part of a balanced diet

Try something different and roast corn on the cob on the grill

We really enjoyed having corn on the cob on July Fourth. One of my children asked why we don’t have it more often. I explained that corn is a starchy vegetable and we shouldn’t eat too much of it. But it got me thinking, how much is reasonable?

Yes, corn is a starchy vegetable. But it’s perfectly fine to enjoy it as part of a balanced diet.

According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, anyone 9 years or older should aim to eat 2 to 3 cups of vegetables a day. That equals 14 to 21 cups a week, and the guidelines recommend that 4 to 6 cups a week, or a bit more than one-quarter of all vegetables, be starchy. Besides corn, starchy vegetables include:

  • Potatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Green peas
  • Lima beans
  • Cassava
  • Plantains
  • Jicama
  • Parsnips
  • Water chestnuts

Most Americans get plenty of starchy vegetables because we eat so many white potatoes, which account for 80 percent of all starchy vegetable consumption, as well as 25 percent of all the vegetables we eat. That’s a lot of potatoes. While they’re a good source of potassium, and of fiber especially if you eat the skin, consider diversifying your diet and replacing some of those potatoes with other starchy vegetables. Including, of course, sweet corn.

Corn is a good source of folate, beta carotene and thiamin along with other vitamins and minerals, and has more fiber than potatoes. It also provides zeaxanthin, an antioxidant that may protect against age-related eye disease, such as macular degeneration.

One cup of corn has about 145 calories. (One medium-sized ear of corn has about two-thirds of a cup of corn.) But watch the butter and salt, which of course add significantly to the calories and sodium. Using spray butter (the kind in the pump-spray bottle) judiciously instead of spreading on butter or margarine can trim calories and still provide that familiar flavor.

Or, try something different and roast corn on the cob on the grill. Just husk as usual, and then brush the corn with olive oil and place directly on a hot grill. Turn the cobs periodically and cook until the kernels are slightly charred. Instead of using salt, try pepper, garlic, or other herbs and spices for flavor.

As you’re enjoying the traditional summer favorite, take a look at the other vegetables you commonly eat and make sure you’re getting plenty of variety, including dark green, red and orange vegetables as well as beans, such as pinto or kidney beans. The Dietary Guidelines recommend eating a wide variety of produce to get a broad array of nutrients. For more about vegetables, see choosemyplate.gov/vegetables.

Red Cross issues emergency call for blood and platelet donations to address significant shortage

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families…..

TOLEDO, Ohio (July 5, 2016) — The American Red Cross has issued an emergency call for blood and platelets, urging all eligible donors to give now to replenish an extremely low summer blood supply.

 

Blood donations have fallen short of hospital needs for the past few months, resulting in about 39,000 fewer donations than what’s needed, as well as a significant draw down of the overall Red Cross blood supply. In addition, the Independence Day holiday may have caused many regular donors to postpone donations due to vacation plans. A recent Red Cross poll revealed that more than 75 percent of donors surveyed indicated vacation plans this summer, many of them occurring the weeks before and after July 4.

 

“Right now, blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in, which is why we are making this emergency request for donations,” said Christy Peters, External Communications Manager of the Western Lake Erie Blood Services Region. “Donations are urgently needed now to meet the needs of hospital patients in the coming days and weeks. If you’ve thought about giving blood and helping to save lives, now is the time to do it. It’s the blood donations on the shelves that help save lives when an emergency occurs.”

 

How to Help

To schedule an appointment to donate, use the free Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). The Red Cross is extending hours at many donation sites to allow for more donors to make an appointment to give. Donation appointments and completion of a RapidPass online health history questionnaire are encouraged to avoid longer wait times. Donors with all blood types are needed.

 

Those unable to give can still help by encouraging others to give through a SleevesUp virtual blood drive at redcrossblood.org/sleevesup, giving of their time through volunteerism or making a financial donation to support Red Cross humanitarian work across the country and around the world.

 

Who Blood Donations Help

Every two seconds in the United States blood and platelets are needed to respond to patient emergencies, including accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant procedures, and patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer or sickle cell disease. The Red Cross must collect approximately 14,000 blood and platelet donations every day for patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide.

 

Because of generous donors, the Red Cross is able to provide blood products to patients like 11-year-old Mae Rainey, who needs regular blood transfusions as part of her treatment for a blood disorder.

 

“I am very grateful for the opportunities that the Red Cross has given us to get her to her healthiest state,” said Caleb Rainey, Mae’s older brother.
