    What’s Up with High U.S. Egg Prices?

    As someone who eats plenty of eggs, the higher prices have not slipped my attention. If you have been grocery shopping recently, or even checked social media, it’s pretty obvious that egg prices are soaring. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average price of a dozen eggs rose 59% last year with prices more than doubling in West Virginia and six other states in the upper Midwest. This jump in price was even more shocking in the case of eggs classified grade A, with prices soaring up to almost 140%.

The consequences of Kwok’s letter were far-reaching and devastating. MSG, then a common food enhancer, was immediately tagged as a toxin in the public eye, a move supported by flawed “research”, and was removed from nearly every commercially-available food found on store shelves.

    FIFA Investigates How Celebrity Chef Salt Bae Got Into World Cup Final

    On December 18, Argentina triumphed over France during the World Cup final and reveled in an exciting victory. But while people took to the streets to celebrate, something else was afoot in the winner’s circle at the tournament.
