The growing number of people suffering from celiac disease and gluten intolerance has prompted a greater variety of gluten-free food products on the market.

Going gluten-free has become somewhat of a craze in recent years, replacing the Atkins and South Beach diets as the “go to” healthy eating plan. While many people experiment with the “diet” as a means to get healthy and lose weight, there is a large number of people who are gluten-free not out of choice, but out of necessity.
Cases of celiac disease, a condition in which the body has problems digesting gluten, have been on the rise in North America in the past decade. While more and more people are being diagnosed with celiac, there is an even greater number of undiagnosed cases, people who are referred to as being gluten intolerant.

Another Christmas has come and gone. Gifts have been opened, turkey and treats have been consumed in quantity, and all that remains is the post-Christmas cleanup. That includes undecorating the Christmas tree and, in cases where a real tree was used, disposing of it.
But that’s not always an easy matter. Christmas trees are usually larger than one can stuff into the trunk of a car.
Fear not, though. The Scouts are coming to rescue.

The presents have been unwrapped, too many extravagant dinners and desserts eaten, all that remains of the holiday is season is the start to your new year’s resolution, and possibly the remnants of a New Year’s Eve hangover.
Many people view the new year as a fresh start, a clean slate, and a chance to leave bad habits in the past and lead a better, often healthier life. Setting a new year’s resolution dates back thousands of years; basically as long as people have been celebrating a new year, they have also been making resolutions.
Brad Hagen, associate professor and co-ordinator of the Health Sciences Graduate Program at the University of Lethbridge, explains that while the process of making a resolution is widespread, the act of keeping those resolutions is not.
