1) Because of depleted frozen-turkey supplies and rising energy prices, this year's Turkey dinner will cost you 11% more than last year.
2) Watch what we eat in the Turkey dinner. Despite clear evidence that eating vegetables can ward off heart disease, diabetes and cancer, less than 10% of Americans meet the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans published in 2005. The New dietary guidelines recommend us to eat 9 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, up from 5 servings in the previous guidelines.
3) Drive safely. In 2005 for example, there were more alcohol-related traffic fatalities (628) over the Thanksgiving holiday in US, than over Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Christmas, or New Year’s Day.
