(Before It's News)

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

You’ve got questions…

We’ve got answers!

Today we are going to discuss a deadly disease lurking in one of America’s favorite breakfast foods — Eggo waffles. Plus, we will reveal a few ways to remove warts naturally.

Let’s dive in…

--Deadly Waffles

Hi Natalie,

A friend of mine told me about listeria being found in Kellogg’s Eggo waffles. She said this bug could make people really sick and might even lead to death. Is this true? Also, Is it in all Eggo waffles or just a certain type or lot number? And if I have some of these contaminated waffles, what should I do with them?

My grandkids are coming over this weekend and I don’t want to feed them something that could make them sick. Please help!

Thanks in advance,

Sue M.

Thanks for asking such an important and urgent question.

Yes, listeria is a very dangerous bacteria and causes serious health issues including fever, aches, diarrhea, nausea and severe infection in the gastrointestinal tract. These infections often require hospitalization and occasionally result in death. Listeria is especially dangerous for folks with fragile immune systems, elderly people and children.

Kellogg’s has recalled over 10,000 cases of Eggo waffles in 25 states due to listeria contamination. Though it’s important to point out that the presence of the bacteria was detected during routine testing, and no cases of listeria infection have been reported to date.

All recalled waffles are the Nutri-Grain Whole Wheat type of Eggo waffles.

The states included are Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

You can also detect potentially contaminated waffles by date codes on the 10-count packages. Any package with the date codes of Nov. 21 or 22, 2017, should be discarded. Also, all recalled waffles have a UPC code of 38000 40370.

Kellogg’s will refund you for any items you have to discard. You can reach them at (800) 962-1413, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.–6 p.m. EST.

But bacteria-laced waffles aren’t the only type of food that could threaten your health. Many foods contain toxins, pesticides and GMO ingredients that can wreak havoc on your health.

Fortunately, one of Living Well’s renegade health researchers has created an easy-to-read guide that reveals the hidden dangers in the foods you eat. Plus, it provides you with life-changing information on how to make nutritious, safe and confident food choices.

--Determined Warts

Hey Natalie,

I have two large warts on my index finger that just won’t go away. I’ve tried everything from liquid over-the-counter wart medicines to one of those freeze-off kits. Nothing has worked, and everything I’ve tried has contained strong-smelling chemicals and caused irritation to my skin.

Do you know of anything natural that may help me rid me of these unsightly warts? They seem determined to stay right where they are.

Thanks,

Jim R.

Thanks for the question, Jim. Lots of folks suffer from stubborn warts, so you’re not alone here.

Warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is easy to catch when you have a cut or scrape on your skin. That’s why warts usually pop up in places prone to skin damage, like your hands.

Since warts are caused by a virus, it makes sense to treat them with antiviral substances like garlic and tea tree oil.

The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) recommends combining these two powerful virus fighters to clear up determined warts.

Here’s how to do it…

Place two–four drops of tea tree oil tincture directly on the wart and then apply a fresh, thin slice of garlic over the wart. Hold in place with tape or bandage. You may have to reapply this treatment nightly for up to three weeks before you see results. As the wart dies, it will turn black and will eventually fall off. Do not take tea tree oil internally.

In addition, UMMC also reports that taking olive leaf extract will also boost your immune system, which could help fight the growth of warts. The recommended dose is 250–500 mg capsules one–three times daily until warts are resolved.

  • I heard organic apple cider vinegar (Braggs) will remove warts also. Use a qtip to apply the vinegar and cover with a bandage. Repeat until the wart falls off. :idea:
