Farmers and homeowners around the country have used glyphosate-based herbicides for decades.

Roundup Options Encourages People with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia to Call for Access to Attorneys at The Steinberg Law Group

Glyphosate is probably carcinogenic to humans.”

— International Agency for Research on Cancer

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, August 22, 2019 / — The Roundup Options Help Center is dedicated to providing the best legal assistance to people stricken with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia from exposure to Roundup or other glyphosate-based weed killers. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with a member of The Steinberg Law Group.

The Roundup Options Help Center has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their decades of experience in handling mass action and class action cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps them obtain the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Roundup is a glyphosate-based herbicide originally produced by Monsanto and introduced to the consumer market in 1974. Monsanto, which Bayer acquired in 2018, developed and patented the glyphosate molecule and retained exclusive rights to glyphosate in the US until its US patent expired in September 2000 (the patent expired earlier in other countries). As a result, today, many similar products use glyphosate as an active ingredient including Ortho GroundClear, Dow DuPont Rodeo, Compare-N-Save Concentrate Grass and Weed Killer, RM43 Total Vegetation Control and Ranger Pro Herbicide.

In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer identified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen. Despite evidence that Monsanto and other producers of glyphosate-based herbicides knew of the probable cancer-causing effects of their products, consumers were not properly warned of the potential dangers. States with the highest risk of glyphosate exposure include Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and Ohio. Even if the exposure to glyphosate occurred outside of one’s home state, The Steinberg Law Group can still obtain the maximum financial compensation available.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and used Roundup or other glyphosate-based herbicides after 1990, the Roundup Options Help Center encourages calling (888) 891-2200 or visiting for more information on how The Steinberg Law Group can help.

How Employers Can Encourage Healthy Eating at Work

An office cafeteria

There’s a revolution taking place in today’s corporate cafeterias.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, August 22, 2019 / — How Did Office Cafeterias Go Gourmet?

If we could go back 30 years to ask the question: “What’s your favorite office cafeteria or restaurant?” we probably would have gotten quite a few blank stares in response. Such was the state of affairs for the much-maligned office cafeteria in those days.

Someone might’ve suggested the United States Senate dining room at the Capitol in Washington, DC — where politicians, lobbyists, and reporters rubbed shoulders (wearing formal jackets and dresses of course, per the dress code). But, despite the high-power guests and Federalist decor, the menu selections were as uninspiring as the signature Senate Bean Soup, which has been on offer each day for more than a hundred years.

The situation today is altogether different. As we’ll see below, hardly a month goes by without a major announcement of a new corporate cafeteria opening up that rivals anything in the local restaurant scene.

But like most revolutions, this transformation didn’t happen overnight. To get where we are today took a journey of more than two decades, starting with a new cafe concept in the San Francisco Bay area.

If you’re thinking about Alice Waters and her groundbreaking Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, you’re not far off. Waters has single-handedly helped develop the modern American palette and our appetite for eating locally grown food.

But there is another figure who helped transform the lackluster world of corporate and institutional cafeterias into the modern gourmand era, the restaurant entrepreneur Fedele Bauccio.

Larry Ellison, the co-founder of the software database giant Oracle, gave Bauccio his first big break in the corporate catering world of Silicon Valley, selecting his company to create a paninonteca, or Italian sandwich shop. Soon Bauccio’s company, Bon Appetit Management Company, opened a series of different cafe offerings at Oracle, each featuring a different cuisine.

Over time, Bon Appetit’s concept of providing high-quality, locally-sourced food took root all across Silicon Valley. The company now operates more than 500 corporate cafeterias at leading tech companies, including Adobe, eBay, Google, LinkedIn, and Yahoo. At Google’s Mountain View headquarters alone, Bon Appetit operates more than 30 different cafes.

The Top 5 Reasons You Should Introduce Healthy Food Options In Your Office
Is the trend toward upgrading corporate cafeterias on your radar?

We look at five reasons you might want to make the switch to offering healthier food options in the office.

1. Cafeterias That Support Your Brand Message Are Becoming An Essential Talent Recruiting Tool

Given the ongoing shortage of tech talent, leading tech and finance companies are making an investment in cafe amenities to build up their brand as a cool place to work.

The resulting transformation of the once mundane corporate cafeteria into a “must try” food destination hasn’t gone unnoticed in the culinary, restaurant, and food service industry, as this deep dive article by Bon Appetit (the magazine, not Fedele Bauccio’s company!) explains:

“Where boomers were swayed by sturdy 401-k plans and reliable retirement packages, today’s labor force—particularly those interested in tech-y and internetty jobs—are wooed by snacks, sustainability, and farm-to-cubicle ethics. And these companies are happy to keep them at the office longer, both in the span of a day and the span of a career.”

In other words, Millennials and Gen Z employees prefer to start their careers at companies that cater (pardon the pun) to their needs and desires, which skew toward workplaces with college campus-inspired open office environments, sustainable business practices, and healthy food choices.

Among these aspirations, it’s the latter one, healthy food choices, that often winds up as the most talked about amenity shared among their peers on social media. Indeed, Instagrammable food pics send a signal to their friends and followers (who, in turn, represent a significant pool of potential job recruits) that company X, Y or Z “is a cool place to work, just look at the food! #delicious.”

2. Skip Sad Desk Lunches. Use Mealtimes To Converse And Collaborate With Colleagues At Work

In a world where we are trying to kick-start worker productivity by encouraging spontaneous collaborations, corporate cafeterias offer a unique opportunity to connect with your co-workers while you savor your meal.

By investing in a central eating location, companies can avoid the food diaspora that occurs at lunchtime. At lunchtime, a certain percentage of employees head for the exits to partake in a longish lunch at some local establishment, while another group hovers worryingly around the kitchen mess, waiting for their moment to get a chance to heat up their salty microwave meal before they muddle through another “sad desk lunch.”

What a missed opportunity.

If you are concerned about lack of communication and missed opportunities for collaboration among your employees, then you should consider an investment in a new or upgraded cafeteria.

It can also help improve productivity by reducing those “long lunches” off campus. A recent study by Towers Watson indicates that having food available at work can save employees between 30 and 60 minutes at lunchtime.

Not sure how to go about it? Talk to one of our friendly Formaspace Office Design Consultants who will share their experience of creating cafeteria furniture for leading companies, such as CapitalOne and Twitter.

3. Good Nutrition Is A Cornerstone Of Good Employee Health

Companies have a reason to be concerned about their employee’s health, particularly due to the alarming increase in incidences of obesity and diabetes that are affecting American workers.

Increasing the activity of your workers at the office is part of the solution.

Getting up and moving around during the day is important; in fact, the negative health aspects of sitting for hours at a time has given rise to the phrase “Sitting is the New Smoking.” That’s why we recommend taking a look at our line of Sit-to-Stand desks, workstations, and conference tables. These innovative furniture designs allow you to change your seating position during the day, from sitting in a chair to standing, in order to improve your cardiovascular health. Taking breaks and walking throughout the day is also part of the solution, including taking a walk to the cafeteria.

Having a cafeteria on site is another way to help your employees live a healthier lifestyle.

Onsite cafeterias will encourage your employees to eat regular meals throughout the day. Research shows many Americans skip meals entirely during the workday. Serving proper portions of healthy food on a regular time schedule can help prevent/control obesity and diabetes.

You can also help “nudge” employees to avoid excessive calories by offering smaller plate sizes (which make us feel fuller with the same caloric intake) as well as changing the menu and recipe choices.

Consider reinforcing healthy eating choices in the cafeteria with other wellness programs, such as an onsite gym or workout facility.

For many employees, using a fitness app, such as MyFitnessPal, LoseIt or FitBit, can help reinforce calorie control and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle.

4. Rethink Food Offerings To Provide Healthier, More Sustainable Options

Companies like Google are taking the concept of calorie control a step further.

For example, the recipe for hamburgers offered at their cafeterias has slowly shifted to include more plant-based ingredients, such as mushrooms.

And healthier vegan choices are promoted more prominently on menus to encourage eating less meat.

It’s all part of Google’s overall plan to reduce the company’s impact on the planet by reducing consumption of livestock, dairy, and egg production that contributes to global carbon emissions.

What can you do at your company?

From birthday cakes to pizza parties, the office makes it difficult for individuals to control calories and make good nutrition choices. One place to start is by replacing sugary and high-caloric snacks with healthy alternatives. Phase out cakes and “treats” with healthy alternatives that have less sugar and more nutrient content. Eliminate pastries and other “treats” provided during long office meetings with healthy alternatives based on fruit and vegetables.

What about snacking throughout the day?

Snacking is not inherently bad. In fact, some nutritionists recommend we eat many smaller mini-meals throughout the day rather than two or three big meals. But we need to eliminate the temptation of sugary late afternoon snacks. Swap out the vending machine and replace it with healthy snack choices.

What if you don’t have a cafeteria at your office?

If you don’t have an office cafeteria, you can organize healthy potlucks where people bring healthy food options from home. For example, a salad club encourages each participating person to bring a special salad topping or side dish.

5. Teach Gardening, Food Preparation, And Cooking Skills For A Healthier Lifestyle At The Office And In The Community

Companies like Adobe and Google are now going beyond just providing healthy food in the cafeteria — they are using their kitchens as teaching tools to educate their employees about the food we eat.

Employees can participate in cooking classes taught by corporate chefs in specially designed kitchens that mimic the type of residential kitchen the employees have at home. These classes go beyond just recipes, they include learning about where food comes from (especially locally-sourced produce), how to be an educated food shopper, and, of course, how to cook healthy recipes at home.

This is an important effort, because many of today’s workers are very disconnected from food sources, instead, relying on pre-packaged, highly processed foods.

Companies can help by partnering with a local community garden, participating in farmer “shares” programs, or arranging buying trips to local farmer markets.

Programs such as these encourage your employees to become healthy food advocates in the communities where they live. You can reinforce this message by offering healthy food from your company garden to visitors and partner companies attending meetings at your facilities.

Seniors' Physical and Mental Health Linked to Optimism

Study shows that a positive attitude can impact a senior’s mental and physical health.

SHELTON, CONNECTICUT , UNITED STATES, August 22, 2019 / — One of the growing health challenges that are prevalent today is understanding how various factors contribute to overall health. Often, people look to treat specific ailments instead of examining the whole. For example, if one has high blood pressure, a healthier diet and regular exercise are prescribed. Or if one’s memory and cognitive ability are deteriorating, it is often linked to just old age or the aging process itself.

A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine looked at how several distinctive factors influenced physical and mental health in people ages 65 and older. The goal of the study was to identify how things such as wisdom, outlook on life, loneliness, income, and sleep played a role in the overall health and functioning of older adults.

The four main observations made, which were published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, were:
Physical health correlated with both cognitive function and mental health;
Cognitive function was significantly associated with physical mobility, wisdom, and life satisfaction;
Physical health was associated with mental well-being, resilience, and younger age; and
Mental health was linked to optimism, self-compassion, income, and lower levels of loneliness and sleep disturbances

“Traits like optimism, resilience, wisdom, and self-compassion were found to be protective, while loneliness seemed to be a risk factor,” said Dilip Jeste, head of the research team.

Based on the results of the study, staying active and positive can help to promote healthy aging, as well as to maintain friendships and to build new relationships. At Comfort Keepers, our caregivers are trained to provide seniors with the assistance needed to maintain an active and positive lifestyle!

With advanced age and the increased frequency of some of life’s more negative experiences such as death, injury, or chronic illness, it’s not uncommon for older adults to be confronted with feelings of increased stress.

Prolonged stress can potentially lead to things such as isolation, loneliness, and depression, which could contribute to mental health problems. The key to overcoming this as we age? As the research indicates, one of the healthiest ways to combat moments of stress and adversity is through having a positive attitude toward aging itself.

Above all, independence is a critical component of having a positive attitude toward aging. Through a wide array of services, our Comfort Keepers caregivers will work to encourage seniors and see that they progress toward their goals.

At Comfort Keepers, we understand the importance of social wellness and the value it can bring to seniors’ lives. Our trusted caregivers not only provide meaningful companionship, but they can also help in getting seniors to and from the places they need to go, so they are still able to enjoy doing the things they love.

Panacea’s CBD makes its way into the world of athletics with this strategic pairing.

Panacea has gone above and beyond with our Mendi product development and priming us as we enter the CBD market. Together, the sky is the limit.”

— Rachael Rapinoe, Mendi CEO

GOLDEN, CO, UNITED STATES, August 22, 2019 / — Panacea Life Sciences has made good on its promise to expand into markets beyond the medical field, and it seems as though their opportunities are endless. The rapid growth and continued improvement and creation of hemp products puts Panacea at the top of the list when companies across the nation are looking to incorporate CBD into their own products and company’s identity. This was the exact thing that brought the Portland, Oregon-based sports company, Mendi, to the Golden foothills of Colorado.

Mendi’s CEO, Rachael Rapinoe, grew up entrenched in the sports world. She touts impressive accolades like winning an NCAA National Championship with the University of Portland’s Women’s Soccer Team (2005), playing professionally in Europe, and eventually building Rapinoe SC — a soccer performance training company & lifestyle apparel brand — with her twin, US Soccer star sister, Megan Rapinoe. In fact, it would seem that all of the team members at Mendi are MVPs in their own right, which has made the pursuit of a collaborative, scientifically-driven, quality-focused company that much more important.

Mendi’s mission is to build a brighter future for sports by leveling the playing field for how athletes and active people can stay at top performance. With the help of Panacea Life Sciences, Mendi is creating a line of the healthiest and most trusted recovery tools possible. They put a huge emphasis on simplicity, saying that “greatness doesn’t have to be complicated”, which echoes Panacea’s standards of making sure to only use 100% natural ingredients and sourcing premium strains of hemp to derive the highest quality CBD. It felt like fate that Panacea and Mendi would meet, but their partnership looks to be a much more powerful destiny. "We chose to work with Panacea first and foremost because they're good people. Secondly, they're one of the best at manufacturing CBD derived products. We pride ourselves in being seasoned entrepreneurs in the sports and cannabis industries, so we're looking for the same qualities in our partners. Panacea has gone above and beyond with our product development and priming us as we enter the market. They are not only our production partners but have also given us invaluable sales and distribution knowledge. Together, the sky is the limit", contends Rapinoe. From the get-go, their collaboration has been electric and steadfast, allowing for a much-anticipated launch of their Mendi Pro Line line of 100% isolate hemp-derived CBD products on Friday, August 23rd. The Pro Line consists of a CBD Salve Stick, Gel Capsules, and Gummies.

This official marriage between the two companies is exciting for both sides, but Panacea is most elated that they are breaking into a field where athletes of all levels, genders, ages, and backgrounds will benefit from this relatively new science of using CBD for relief and recovery. Nick Cavarra, Panacea’s Vice President of Sales, shares, “Panacea is well suited to aide in the success of today’s athlete at every level. Our focus on pain relief, anxiety, and improved sleep align perfectly with the goals and purpose of Mendi”.

Panacea Life Sciences earned the Westword’s 2019 Reader’s Choice ‘Best of Denver’ awards for the ‘Best Hemp Company’ as well as the ‘Best CBD-Infused Product’.

Founded in 2017, the Golden, Colorado-based company was created with customers’ health and well-being as a priority in order to serve as a global platform for the reintroduction of hemp-based therapeutics into mainstream lifestyles. Panacea products include softgels, fast-dissolving sublingual tablets, salves, lotions, tinctures, and gummies, and new products are constantly in the works. Learn more and place an order at

K2 overdose emergency cases are up 128% in DC over last year

Education is key in helping reduce our drug problem. The influx of synthetic drugs continues to plague the DC metro area with deadly overdoses.”

— Rev. Susan Taylor, Drug-Free World DC

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, August 22, 2019 / — The spokesperson for the D.C. Fire and EMS in Washington, DC, sounded the alarm on the illegal street drug known as “K2” this week. In 2019, there have been more than 3,000 K2 overdose cases just through July, marking a 128% increase over the same time period last year when there were about 1,300 cases. Ambulances, fire trucks, and hospitals have been overwhelmed with overdose calls and visits.

In all of 2018, there were 3,488 cases of K2 overdose calls for ambulances. Just over half way through 2019, those numbers have almost been reached already.

Taking the message about the dangers of K2 or synthetics to the street, volunteers from the Foundation for a Drug-Free World participated in the DC Police sponsored “Beat the Streets” program. Volunteers braved almost 100-degree heat to talk with officials, youth and parents about synthetics and urged them to stay away from such drugs, giving them booklets from the Truth About Drugs series on synthetics. These booklets from the Foundation for a Drug-Free World detail information about K2, also called “Spice” or “Scooby Snax”.

Synthetics are very different from cannabis and are actually dried plant material sprayed with various synthetic drugs. There is no way to know what is in each batch and even the same batch can vary widely in strength. That is partially what makes them so dangerous. At least five deaths this year have been related to K2, just in Washington, DC.

Rev. Susan Taylor, faith liaison for the Foundation shared, “Education is key in helping reduce our drug problem. The influx of synthetic drugs continues to plague the DC metro area with deadly overdoses. We see drugs in every corner of our communities. Our youth, our family members, our friends all need to be educated about drugs. We are working in coalition with government agencies, parents, police, other drug education programs, churches, teachers, and other organizations in doing just that.”

Started by a DC Police officer, Beat the Streets is run throughout the summer with programs and activities for youth to direct them from drugs and violence. The program includes education as well as fun activities to keep youth entertained and out of gangs and crime.

Used widely by DC Prevention Centers, churches, re-entry programs, government agencies and non-profits in the Washington, DC, metro area as well as around the country, the Truth About Drugs materials empower youth and adults with the facts so they can make informed decisions and avoid the tragedy of drug addiction.

The Truth About Drugs booklets make the point that drugs are not the solution: “Difficult as it may be to face one’s problems, the consequences of drug use are always worse than the problem one is trying to solve with them.”

Evidence based studies have shown that when young people are provided the true information about drugs, usage rates drop.

The Church of Scientology supports the Foundation for a Drug-Free World’s Truth About Drugs program which is one of the world’s largest non-governmental drug education and prevention campaigns. IT features shows about successful application of the Drug-Free World material on www.Scientology.TV.

Drug-Free World offers all its educational materials for free. Materials can be ordered at The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is an international organization with materials in 22 languages.

Foundation for a Drug-Free World Urges Parents to Educate Themselves about Marijuana and its Mind-Altering Drug THC

Kids are encouraged to sign the Drug-Free Pledge in the Foundation for a Drug-Free World information center in downtown Clearwater.

The most common overdose incidents in children occur when the drug has been combined with food in an "edible" form of marijuana. ”

— Children's Hospital Colorado

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, August 22, 2019 / — With the push from marijuana advocates to legalize marijuana in Florida, FDFW is urging parents to find out the facts and the effects of this mind-altering drug and concerned mothers and volunteers of the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) distributed hundreds of the “Truth About Marijuana” information booklets to other parents this past weekend in Clearwater.

“THC is the drug in marijuana that causes a high. A ‘God-given’ marijuana plant contains about 1-2% THC,” said Joanna Young, a mother and founder of Drug Addiction Help Line, who has helped educate hundreds of parents about drugs. “Marijuana is now being genetically modified by man to contain 12-25% THC and sometimes higher, this is far from God-given and has resulted in increased number of cases of psychosis in marijuana users.”

In March 2019, emergency room records from UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital showed a three-fold increase in marijuana cases since the state first allowed recreational marijuana in January 2014. ER visits for marijuana-caused symptoms include repeated vomiting, racing heart and psychotic episodes. [i]

Andrew Monte of UC Health said, “… with marijuana’s increased availability and higher THC concentrations, we may be seeing more adverse drug reactions.”

Another recent study found that people who smoked strong marijuana on a daily basis were three times more likely to be diagnosed with psychosis compared with people who never used the drug. Intoxication and heart problems were other common complaints in the Colorado hospital study.[ii]

“Marijuana edibles, which include candies, chocolate, cookies and chips (just to name a few) very often have high THC content and are packaged to resemble sweets familiar to kids, which is extremely dangerous and irresponsible. Children have been hospitalized from THC edibles.” Ms. Young said.

Information from the Children’s Hospital Colorado website states:

“The most common overdose incidents in children occur when the drug has been combined with food in an "edible" form of marijuana. This is because marijuana ingested in this manner can have a stronger and prolonged effect, especially in children under the age of 12 years old.

“In these instances, kids mistake ‘edible’ marijuana (like gummy bears, brownies, lollipops, etc.) for regular food and eat it unknowingly. Small children are at higher risk based on their size and weight. Because edible products have very high amounts of marijuana, the symptoms are more severe on a small child. Many young children who consume marijuana edibles require hospital admission due to the severity of their symptoms.”

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World urges the public to get the real facts and not blindly follow what the “drug pushers” who will benefit from the users, have to say.

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World provides free education materials to anyone. Their materials include 14 different information booklets on the most commonly abused drugs and a documentary DVD: “Real People Real Stories.” To get more information, copies of the booklets or the documentary DVD, visit

Foundation for a Drug-Free World:

The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a non-profit organization that educates youth and the community on the truth about illicit drugs so they can make the right decision live drug-free. The Church of Scientology is a sponsor of the program making it possible for the Foundation to provide educational materials at no cost to educators, law enforcement and the community. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard said, “Marijuana, for example, so favored by college students, who are supposed to be getting bright today so they can be the executives of tomorrow, is reported capable of causing brain atrophy.”
