가슴통증은 위산역류보다는 다른 원인에 의해 발병하지만, 위식도 역류의 많은 환자들이 가슴통증을 호소하고 있다는 연구결과가 나왔다. New research suggests that heartburn may be caused by something other than acid reflux in many people, but gastroenterologists are often stumped as to what it is and how to treat it. Some 44% of Americans have heartburn at least once a month, and 7% have it daily, and heartburn that frequent is the most common symptom of the rising gastroesophageal reflux disease. Up to one-half of GERD patients do not get complete relief from even the strongest acid-reducing medications, called proton-pump inhibitors, and gastrointestinal experts now estimate that 50% to 70% of GERD patients actually have non-erosive reflux diseases. Studies also show those patients are more likely to be female, younger and thinner than typical acid-reflux sufferers, reported The Wall Street Journal. Full Story (WSJ Subscription Required)

But other labels have little or no standards, or are certified by unknown organizations or by self-interested industry groups, reported The Boston Globe. Full Story

칠면조의 강한 수요는 생산자들에게 올해 사상 최고의 사료비를 극복하게 해주었다. Healthy demand for turkey has helped producers overcome record-high feed costs this year. The holidays are always "a good time for the turkey industry," because of the whole-body birds that are sold—about 40% of the year's business—and the state will once again sell all of its turkeys this year, according to the president of the California Poultry Federation. The state supplies about 35% of the nation's turkeys and consumers who want a California-grown fresh turkey will need to act fast, because California birds tend to sell out long before out-of-state birds. While U.S. poultry producers have had to reduce their production of chickens this year, turkey farmers matched supply to demand, and that has kept prices strong, reported Ag Alert. Full Story

미국 블루베리 의회는 블루베리의 기준 가격 인상에 대한 근거를 준비하고 있다. The U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council is seeking an assessment increase. A blueberry farmer told the Oregon Blueberry Commission at a Nov. 13 meeting that the council voted unanimously in October to pursue an increase to $18 a ton from $12. The unanimous support was surprising given that a proposal in 2009 to raise assessments to $24 from $12 a ton was contentious and was forwarded to USDA only by a narrow margin. The farmer attributed the increased support this year to strong backing for research the council is funding. Most of the increased revenue generated by the assessment increase will go toward funding research trials showing the benefits of blueberries on human health, reported Capital Press.
