Officials in Riverside, Calif., said they were disappointed to find out more than 13,000 boxes of unsold Girl Scout cookies were thrown away instead of donated.

A video of a tractor trashing the cookies before they were sent to a landfill was posted online in May, CBS Los Angeles reported. In the video, a worker can be heard laughing and saying "Goodbye, Girl Scout cookies!" Pastor Cathy Purden of the Rock of the Valley Church in Van Nuys saw the video and said: "That's something those children could have had, cookies. "You stop and think about how many little children would be excited if you gave them a box of Girl Scout cookies. I would be excited. I buy them," Purden said.

Men who eat a regular diet of deep-fried foods such as french fries, fried chicken and doughnuts have a higher risk of prostate cancer, U.S. researchers say.

An anti-bacterial agent called triclosan used in many hand soaps has been detected in increasing amounts in several Minnesota freshwater lakes, researchers say.

Scientists at the University of Minnesota say the findings are directly linked to the increasing use of such anti-bacterial soaps and other products over the past decades. The researchers also reported detecting chemical compounds called chlorinated triclosan derivatives, created when triclosan is exposed to chlorine during wastewater disinfection processes. When exposed to sunlight both triclosan and its chlorinated derivatives form dioxins that have potential toxic effects in the environment, they said.

Sugar-sweetened or diet soda may increase the risk of depression, but drinking coffee may slightly lower the risk, U.S. researchers say.

Study author Dr. Honglei Chen of the National Institutes of Health in Research Triangle Park in North Carolina said the study involved about 264,000 people ages 50-71 who drank soda, tea, fruit punch and coffee from 1995 to 1996. About 10 years later, Chen and colleagues asked the study participants whether they had been diagnosed with depression since 2000. A total of 11,311 depression diagnoses were made, Chen said.

Eating a high-protein breakfast with nuts may lead to being leaner and less hungry during the rest of the day, a fitness expert says.

Charles Poliquin said his single best dietary tip for optimal leanness, energy and sustained mental focus, is the meat-and-nuts breakfast, which allows for a gradual rise in blood sugar and results in decreased cravings throughout the entire day, AskMen.com reported. Examples of Poliquin's high-protein breakfast are one to two lean turkey burgers and a handful of almonds, a salmon omelet and a handful of walnuts, or two lean ground-beef patties and one handful of Brazil nuts.

As with any physical activity, the body must warm up so ease into snow shoveling, try not to do it all at once and take breaks, a U.S. cardiologist says.

Dr. Charles Davidson, clinical chief of cardiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and medical director at Northwestern's Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute, said before snow shoveling eat a small meal to provide a source of energy. However, digestion puts strain on the heart, so eating a large meal before any physical activity should be avoided. Additionally, alcohol and caffeine should also be avoided just prior to shoveling, Davidson said.
