L.R. Rice founded Rice's Lucky Clover Honey LLC, headquartered in Greeley, Colorado in 1924. This women-owned, family operated company, now in its 5th generation, remains a leading producer of authentic, high quality, raw, and unfiltered honey. The company’s honey is 100% pure, local United States, raw and unfiltered honey. Ronna Rice is the fifth-generation CEO and co-owner of Rice’s Lucky Clover Honey LLC, which is headquartered in Greeley and a leading producer of authentic, raw and unfiltered honey.

When the company first began in 1924, the family worked bee yards, extracted honey, filled and labeled glass jars, then sold products door to door in Northern Colorado. Since that time, Rice’s Lucky Clover Honey has established and nurtured long-standing relationships with beekeeper families throughout the United States. This allows for quality U.S. honey to be packed in every bottle of Rice’s Lucky Clover Honey. Our customized filling process and system ensures the natural pollen and enzymes of the raw honey remain in every bottle.

Rice’s Lucky Clover Honey has generated significant brand equity through its commitment to producing high quality, premium, raw, and unfiltered honey at affordable prices.

Eileen Swierczsynki, marketing manager for AED Superstore, the world’s largest distributor of automated external defibrillators joins eHealth Radio and the Heart Health, Emergency Care & Health News Channels to discuss AED's & the liability myth.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Eileen Swierczsynki discuss the following:

  • Today we are talking about Automated External De-fib-rillators - also called AEDs - and the questions some may have regarding what, if any, liability risks are involved in owning one of these life-saving devices.  First let’s talk a little bit about what, exactly, AEDs are.
  • So if AEDs are so important to survival for someone in sudden cardiac arrest, why aren’t there more AEDs around?  I mean, I usually see them in airports, malls and schools, but why aren’t they everywhere?
  • I have to admit, that does seem intimidating, and I can’t blame them for feeling that way.  But you say there really is no reason to worry about litigation - why is that?
  • So what is your recommendation with regard to AEDs?  Is it worth the risk?

Eileen Swierczynski is the Marketing Manager for AED Superstore and, as such, has spent the last year learning as much as she possibly can about sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), automated external defibrillators, and the heart.  She has a passion for spreading awareness of SCA so more lives can be saved and encourages everyone to take a CPR/AED class because you never know when you will need it.

Making healthy food and lifestyle choices easier for families - evidence from the European funded I Family Study research project

February 9, 2017
00:0000:00

Wolfgang_AHRENS.jpg

 

Professor Wolfgang Ahrens based in Germany and joins eHealth Radio and the Children's Health, Health News & Family Channels. Ahrens is Project Co-ordinator of the European funded I Family research project into what drives food and lifestyle choice in European children and families and how those choices impact on lifelong health.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Wolfgang Ahrens discuss the following:

  • The I Family Study won funding from Europe in the face of strong competition. What was it about your proposal and your ambitions for the 5 year research project that secured that approval and the funding?
  • What is the I Family Study contributing to further our understanding of how European families and children in particular can be helped to live healthier lives? What’s new in terms of science and evidence that can help individuals help themselves?
  • What would be the one key, that the I Family Study and their message for families and particularly parents about how they can help their children invest in their life long health? Is it food choice or is it engaging in physical activity – where should parents place their efforts? How can we help ourselves and our families to combat obesity and other health issues?
  • What practical advice can I Family give to healthcare professionals across Europe as to how best they can support families? Where should they put their efforts? Are there interventions that work & can be relied on to provide that support?
  • Can families and healthcare professionals on their own deliver the change that’s needed to combat the global long-term trend towards sed-en-tary lives and weight gain? Isn’t there a need for Europe-wide and also national regulation to combat this trend?

Conclusion: At an individual level there is much that families – adults and children – can do to help themselves if they prioritise their lifelong health. But at a population level, to support particularly the most vulnerable/those with least advantages, as professionals we believe there has to be appropriate regulation and policies to help us all combat modern society and life which makes it too easy to eat and act less healthily than we should.

 

Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Ahrens is professor of epidemiological methods at the faculty of mathematics and computer science of the University of Bremen, Germany. He is Deputy Director of the Leibniz Institute for Prevention Research and Epidemiology - BIPS in Bremen and head of the department Epidemiological Methods and Etiological Research.
