Pick Supermarket Milk From the Back
Milk in the front of the refrigerated case is most likely the wrong temperature because open fridge cases do not hold their temperatures toward the front.
While temperatures are okay in the back, the front can be as high as 50 degrees. This may hasten the milk’s expiration date.
Dr Oz: Pseudomonas Aeruginosa
Some vegetable misters in supermarkets spread mold and bacteria. Doctor Oz collected samples and tested them for germs. He found pseudomonas aeruginosa on the veggies. This bacteria causes pneumonia and other health issues. Some misters contain mold on them, plus they use recycled water when misting.
Solution: ALWAYs wash produce for 30 seconds under cool, running water. Be sure to pat dry with a paper towel.
Better Seafood Board: Fish Switched at Supermarkets
You may not be getting the fish you’re paying for. For instance, many supermarkets sell lemon sole and red snapper, which look the same, but lemon sole is much cheaper. This may be what you get when you are paying for the more expensive snapper.
Solution: Talk to your supermarket to find out if they belong to the Better Seafood Board (BSB).
Bacteria at the Supermarket Check-Out
The checkout conveyor belt may be dangerous because it may contain a germ that lives in the intestines that is resistant to most antibiotics.
Dr Oz’s 3 “F” Rule
Never place fresh fruits, fresh veggies, or fresh bread onto the conveyer belt. Hand them to the check out person instead.

Dr Oz: Orange Peels
Save your orange peels because they contain antioxidants. Zest a peel and add to risotto or salad dressings. Also, eat broccoli stalks for 100% of your daily dose of vitamin C. Peel the stem and eat raw or steam them.
