Lunch at JDHS: hip vs. healthy

Adults may doubt the allure of Frito pie, but when some students at Juneau-Douglas High School encounter a pile of corn chips covered with canned chili and topped with a steaming squirt of processed cheese, they find it irresistible. "I'd rather have something that tastes good than something that is healthy," said Kyle Deloach, 15, as he munched his second chili-chips-and-cheese pie in a week, washing it down with a swig from a 20-ounce orange soda during a recent lunch period.

Frito pie is part of a bigger picture

According to school nurse Barbara Walker, since Frito pie became available at Juneau-Douglas High School, students have been asking for Tums to calm the gastrointestinal storm caused by eating it.

Outside editorial: Effective health care begins in the home

In the debate over health-care reform, one elephant in the waiting room isn't being discussed. We have been told repeatedly that our health-care system is not only the most expensive in the world but one of the least efficient in meeting the health-care needs of the nation. So how do we solve these two problems? From my perspective as a physician, I would say we need to start by taking a hard look at the diseases we are doing such a bad job of controlling and at the individuals who suffer from them.
