According to a recent study, obesity in America is affecting road safety.

Subway responded today to the allegation by two New Jersey men that their Subway sandwich was not the advertised 12 inches, vowing to keep its commitment to ensuring all footlongs are indeed a foot long.

Between 2007 and 2011, the number of emergency room visits linked to consumption of energy drinks doubled, according to a press release by Drug Abuse Warning Network. Yet Monster calls these allegations a fallacy, citing a lack in information on coffee consumption and other potential factors. After the very public reports on increases in deaths related to energy drink consumption, Monster is taking a critical stance.

Daily Hash 1/21/13: Hooters undergoes a "breastlift", Whole Foods founder and fascism, and more

Posted By on Mon, Jan 21, 2013 at 10:28 AM

It's been three weeks since you made that New Year's resolution to hit the gym. Here's a funny video depicting if guys and girls switched roles at the gym.

Southern Living posted its list for the 2013 Best Bars in the South. Atlanta favorites that made the list include Leon's Full Service, H. Harper Station, and the place that seems to escape no list, Holeman & Finch.

Hooters is undergoing a "breastlift" as the Huffington Post so eloquently dubbed the restaurant chain's national revamping campaign. Apparently the lonely male middle-aged patrons are getting their "breastfix" elsewhere, so new CEO Terry Marks is attempting to lure them back not with new girls, but with new booths.

Whole Foods founder John Mackey called the health care law an act of fascism yesterday in an NPR interview. He later reneged on his statement, telling CBS This Morning that the comment "was a bad choice of words on my part." Yet he did not rescind his opinion that the law invokes a new kind of government. Instead of fascism, he said, "we need a new word for it. I don't know what they right word is."

On your next trip to Chipotle, you may find yourself paying a pretty penny for that burrito. According to the Wall Street Journal, the fast food chain is under pressure from losses in fourth quarter profits and rising food prices. To combat these problems, the company may be forced to increase prices.
