Schnucks sponsors gluten-free food festival
DES PERES, Mo. — A Schnuck Markets store in Missouri will sponsor a special sampling of gluten-free foods to mark a day of recognition for people who can’t eat gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.
Schnucks announced that its store in Des Peres, Mo., would have a "Gluten-Free Sample Fest" on Thursday afternoon to mark National Celiac Awareness Day. Celiac disease is a digestive disorder in which patients experience an autoimmune response when they ingest foods with gluten that can damage the small intestine and inhibit absorption of nutrients from foods.
"A growing number of our customers are being diagnosed with celiac disease, and others are curious to learn more about gluten-free products," Schnucks dietitian Kara Behlke said, saying she would be on hand to talk about the disease, discuss nutritional considerations and recommend products.
The event will include samples of gluten-free breads, crackers and other baked goods and beers, with chefs demonstrating gluten-free recipes and presentations for children that include sushi rolling, parfait mixing and pancakes.

Study: Topical antibiotics prevent infection from small cuts, abrasions
WASHINGTON — Minor, uncomplicated wounds, such as the typical cuts and scrapes of childhood, are less likely to become infected when kept clean and moist and treated with topical antibiotics, according to a literature review published online Friday in the Annals of Emergency Medicine, the peer-reviewed scientific journal for the American College of Emergency Physicians.
"The studies found significant differences between wounds that were simply kept moist and those that were kept moist with the application of a topical antibiotic," stated lead author Anna Waterbrook, of the University of Arizona in Tucson. "In fact, wounds that were treated with topical creams that kept the wound moist but didn’t provide any antibiotic were associated with a higher infection rate and should not be used," she noted.
"The bottom line is that topical antibiotics may help prevent infection when used to treat minor wounds," Waterbrook said. "It’s also important to clean the wound and keep it covered before applying an antibiotic cream. That’s good medicine for adults as well as children."
Topical Antibiotics will surely have a definite effect on the wound even if the wound gets a little moist conditions. But if we are not cleaning the wound and directly keeping under moist conditions then there is mostly a greater chances of having the injuries getting infected. In response the most chances of having affected is in case of injuries in babies or small children. Virginia personal injury attorney
