LARGO - What people put into their bodies has a significant effect on their physique. That’s why anyone who wants to be healthier should adopt a clean, whole foods diet, said nutrition expert and trainer Julia Zammito, who owns Total Body Results.

Those new to eating clean might have trouble adjusting to the diet without someone guiding them. So once a month, Zammito offers a free tour of the Publix grocery store at 13031 Walsingham Road, Largo. During each tour, she provides helpful tips on which foods to avoid and which to eat regularly, reviews ingredient lists on labels and answers any questions attendees might have.

“It’s just kind of my way of getting a microphone out and preaching the word of nutrition. They need to hear it in person, rather than just reading about it,” she said. “I feel like it’s kind of my mission. I try to make it fun and engaging, so it’s not boring.”

With the likelihood of additional rainfall early next week due to Tropical Storm Erika, residents are being urged to take steps to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and use repellants to prevent being bitten.

The first human case of West Nile Virus was confirmed in a 32-year-old male in Pinellas County Aug. 28. Health officials issued a mosquito-borne illness advisory Aug. 21 to alert the public of the need to protect against the threat.

Twenty-three sentinel chickens have tested positive for WNV so far in the county’s Mosquito Control coops located in Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Oldsmar and Seminole.

Nancy Eiseman was standing in the aisles of a grocery store, dismayed at the options for organic produce, when she had an idea.

“I wish I had somebody that would go out and find really great food for me,” she remembered thinking.

She seized the idea in a moment of epiphany. Six months later, Queen Bee Foods - delivering boxes of fresh organic food to your doorstep - was born.

It was a perfect home business for the mother of five, who knew the value of saving time amid busy teenage schedules, as well as the value of nutrition-packed foods.

As a pharmacognosy consultant at Botanical Resource in Clearwater, Pamela Seefeld said she sees many people who are taking supplements without knowing what they’re used for.

“A lot of people take a lot of different supplements because they hear about it on TV, but they aren’t taking the right ones,” she said. “Sometimes, none of it is fully helping the problem you’ve got.”

Instead, Seefeld said, people should be looking at their baseline, especially their blood work (including levels of calcium, sodium, potassium and liver enzymes), to see what help they need.

Americans like their wine. In fact, the United States is the biggest global consumer of wine, beating out France and Italy, according to the 2015 study by the International Vine and Wine Organization.

Last year, U.S. consumers bought 30.7 million hectoliters of wine.

No wonder a question Dr. Jose R. Santana Jr., often hears from his patients is, “Are there health benefits to drinking wine?”

Santana, an internist from Morton Primary Care in Clearwater, said his patients ask because of news reports and information on popular medical shows like “Dr. Oz” and “The Doctors,” talking about the health benefits of wine.

ST. PETERSBURG - Bayfront Health St. Petersburg is the first hospital in the Tampa Bay area to use YELLOW 560, a fluorescent dye integrated with a surgical microscope visualization system used to remove brain tumors.

During a surgical case, the low-dose fluorescein is injected into the brain and a high definition filter intensifies and assesses the degree of fluorescent signal between the tumor and normal surrounding brain. The neurosurgeon is able to see highlighted fluorescence-stained structures of the tumor while viewing non-stained tissue in its normal color.
