Holiday season has snuck up on us yet again and that means one thing: it’s time to shop! In a race against time to find the perfect, last minute Christmas gift, you’ve probably hit the panic button. Fear not! We’ve created a list of last-minute gift ideas to make for the best surprise once unwrapped.
Whether you’re stuffing the turkey or making a pie, the kitchen is the heart of the home during the holidays.

For millions of Americans, the world is a sneezy, wheezy place, filled with normally harmless substances that their bodies recognize as enemies. Of all the enemies, there's one almost no one can escape: house dust.
With a parade of germs constantly following you around, one of the healthiest and easiest habits that you can adapt is remembering to wash your hands. Not only does washing your hands prevent spreading germs to other people, it also keeps you from spreading germs to yourself. You should always wash your hands before eating and especially after you have used the restroom—even in your own bathroom, every time.
Germs are everywhere. Every time you shake someone’s hand, touch a door handle or borrow computer or cell phone, you are spreading and receiving germs. Germs are found in places that we normally don't think of as being unclean.
UV-C is a type of ultraviolet light, also known as Germicidal UV. It has the power to kill or incapacitate bacteria, mold, fungi, and viruses by destroying the DNA of dangerous pathogens. This is an extremely powerful technology to facilitate clean air, because there are no known microorganisms immune to UV-C energy.
No matter where you live, what you do for a living, or whom you surround yourself with, you’re certain to run into germs and other microorganisms every single day. Hand sanitizers and anti-bacterial sprays can deter the transfer of anything truly nasty, but are these always the appropriate solutions for the highly-trafficked germ breeding ground you might call your bathroom or kitchen?
This year more than 50 million Americans will sniffle, wheeze, cough, or scratch their way through a bout of allergies. Some suffer from short-lived seasonal allergies, while others suffer all year long-usually in response to foods, pets, or the dust mites that take residence in all of our mattresses and pillows. An unlucky few will suffer from a combination of the two. Dr. Beth Corn, of the department of Clinical Immunology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, talks about who gets allergies, how to know for sure when it's allergies, and the rare occasions when they can be life threatening.
