As a parent, I know how hard it is to get out the door on school mornings – much less get some decent food in kids’ bellies before rushing out.

You know those TV families who sit down to a hearty, home-cooked breakfast before school? Spoiler alert: That hardly happens in the real world — and I’m not going to feel guilty about it.

Whether you make breakfast from scratch or grab something to heat-n-eat, you can give yourself and your kids a better starting point when you shop with us. That’s because everything meets our standards for no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners or preservatives along with no hydrogenated fats or high fructose corn syrup. Yep, even that cereal bar or toaster pastry you toss your kid’s way as they run out the door.

You won’t find standards like these anywhere else. No label reading required.

Check out what you might find in your favorite breakfast foods if not from Whole Foods Market.

Give yourself a break and skip the label reading.

A study in C. elegans worms identifies a 'roving detection system' on the surface of worm cells that may point to new ways of treating diseases like cancer, Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The study sheds light on the molecular mechanisms that enable both normal and cancerous cells to break through normal tissue boundaries and burrow into other tissues and organs.

A new integrated approach to pinpoint the genetic “drivers” of cancer has been developed by scientists, uncovering eight genes that could be viable for targeted breast cancer therapy. While the study focused on identifying genetic drivers for breast cancer, the approach could easily be applied to other tumors types as well, authors note.

When life gives you lemons… use them! Lemons are not only a tasty warm weather fruit, but offer health benefits as well. A citrus fruit, lemons are a good source of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that helps to keep the immune system strong.

Lemons come in both sour (Eureka and Lisbon) and relatively sweet (Meyer) varieties. Look for a lemon that is heavy for its size, which indicates less skin and more flesh. The peel should have a finely grained texture and be fully yellow. You can use both the flesh and the peel (as a zest if the lemon is organic) in all types of dishes, so enjoy – we like them in the Lemon Olive Oil Cake recipe.

And don’t limit the lemons to cooking - lemons make an effective, natural cleaning product for your home. To clean and polish wood furniture, add two tablespoons of lemon juice to 10 drops of (real) lemon oil and a few drops of jojoba oil.

In states with higher Medicaid payments for office visits, Medicaid beneficiaries were more likely to be screened for breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer, a recent study shows. Although Medicaid is a joint state-federal government health insurance program, each state sets the policies for its own Medicaid program within requirements set by the federal government.

A possible molecular explanation for why overweight is harmful has been discovered by researchers. They suggest that overeating increases the immune response. This increased immune response causes the body to generate excessive inflammation, which may lead to a number of chronic diseases. This new knowledge may provide new drugs for heart attack, stroke, cancer and chronic intestinal inflammation.
