At just 3.57 calories a piece, candy corn is a Halloween staple, but it hardly resembles corn and isn't the least bit healthy, a U.S. food expert says.

"Maybe it's time for a healthier candy corn," Phil Lempert, a food industry analyst, trend watcher and creator of supermarketguru.com, said in a statement. "Halloween accounts for 75 percent of the annual candy corn production and according to social media analyst NetBase, candy corn is the most talked about Halloween candy this year - both the good and the bad!"

Dr. Anil Nigam and colleagues at the University of Montreal-affiliated EPIC Center of the Montreal Heart Institute, compared the effects of a junk-food meal and a typical Mediterranean meal on the vascular endothelium, the inner lining of the blood vessels.

During a power outage, an appliance thermometer is invaluable to test the temperature of food in the refrigerator and freezer, U.S. health officials said.

Officials at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in case of a power outage, the appliance thermometers will indicate the temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer to help you determine if the food is safe - the freezer temperature should be at or below 0 degrees F and the refrigerator should be at 40 degrees F or below. If the power does go out, keep the refrigerator and freezer doors closed as much as possible to maintain the cold temperature. A refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours if it is left unopened. A full freezer will keep the temperature for approximately 48 hours - or 24 hours if it is half full - if the door remains closed, officials said.

The use of herbicides in the production of three genetically modified crops has increased as "superweeds" are showing up, a U.S. researcher says.

A study by Washington State University scientist Charles Benbrook on the impacts of three genetically engineered herbicide-resistant crops - cotton, soybeans and corn - on herbicide usage found the emergence and spread of resistant weeds is strongly linked to the increased use of glyphosphate pesticides. Marketed as Roundup and under other trade names, glyphosate is a broad-spectrum systemic herbicide used to kill weeds and is extensively used with crops that have been genetically modified to be herbicide resistant.

Many U.S. parents are unaware that 8 percent of kids have a food allergy and more than 15 percent of them have an allergic reaction at school, an expert says.

"We couldn't do all of L.A. at once," said spokesman Thom Mrozek. "There's just too many stores."
