Health Department Inspects Food Vendors At Ravalli Co. Fair | Missoula Local News –

More Headlines Neighbors in downtown Bozeman bring alcohol issues to light North Star Amusements vendors service a number of fairs in the region. Ravalli County’s environmental health director, John Palacio, spent the day inspecting all North Star’s vendors, and its refrigeration system. Palacio showed NBC Montana a generator that was running on one of its freezer’s trucks. “The generator is fairly new looking,” said Palacio. “They do have power during their transport and they’re getting their food delivered here, as opposed to taking it from the previous site.” Palacio said other freezers weren’t plugged in. But he said the freezers were empty, and will be cleaned and sanitized before food is stored in them. Palacio said North Star’s vendors have passed all inspections so far. He will continue his inspections Wednesday. Palacio will also be inspecting dozens of private vendors before and during the fair.

Health Organizations Call For A Ban On E-Cigarettes Indoors : Shots – Health News : NPR

And e-cigarettes don’t necessarily deter young people from smoking tobacco, according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published Monday. Earlier studies have found a modest deterrent effect. But this study found that 44 percent of those who used e-cigarettes say they plan to try tobacco cigarettes in the next year, compared with 22 percent of those who haven’t tried e-cigs. FDA Moves To Regulate Increasingly Popular E-Cigarettes The number of teenagers who had never smoked a cigarette but used electronic cigarettes more than tripled in three years, the study found, rising from 79,000 in 2011 to more than 263,000 in 2013. The results were published in Nicotine and Tobacco Research. And if that’s not enough, the American Heart Association issued its first policy statement on e-cigarettes, saying that the devices should be regulated like tobacco products by state and local governments, including them in smoke-free laws and taxing them to discourage use by teenagers.
