Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup.
This week antibiotic resistant Salmonella is in your chicken, walking lowers cancer risk, and a frightening drop in women’s longevity.
Want to see all my favorite links? (There’s lots more). Be sure to follow me on on Delicious. I also share links on Twitter @summertomato, Google+ and the Summer Tomato Facebook page. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you. (And yes, I took that pepper heart pic myself).
