Left packet of rice open for 3 hours. Heard about raw rice containing Bacillus cereus and multiplying when cooked. Food poisoning risk?

Left packet of rice open for 3 hours. Heard about raw rice containing  Bacillus cereus and multiplying when cooked. Food poisoning risk?

Possible: Fried rice is an important cause of emetic-type food poisoning associated with B. cereus in the United States. The organism is frequently present in uncooked rice, and heat-resistant spores may survive cooking. Cooked rice subsequently at room temperature can allow vegetative forms to multiply, and the heat-stable toxin that is produced can survive brief heating such as stir frying. ...Read more

Is pork loin (the round part that looks white) the same nutritional value as skinless chicken breast (white meat), if all pork fat is trimmed away?

Is pork loin (the round part that looks white) the same nutritional value as skinless chicken breast (white meat), if all pork fat is trimmed away?

Complicated: I checked a database that includes many brands of skinless chicken breast and lean pork loin - they're very close: for identical portions, the calories are identical (140 grams of meat=240 calories each; for pork vs chicken: total fat: 8.6 g vs 6.3 g but for monounsaturated (good fat)-3.7 g vs 2.2. For cholesterol: 100 vs 119. So, overall, they're about the same. (they both get a "b" rating). ...Read more

Cooked brown rice and it says every 1/4 cup is 160 I made 1/2 cup so it's 360 the rice doubled in size to 2 cups did the calories increase too??

Calories=cooked: Measure the product after it is cooked for accurate calorie information. Cooking only adds water, btw, it doesn't affect the nutritional value. If you use parboiled rice or parboil it yourself, the glycemic index goes down a bit (the extent to which your blood sugar rises), which is a good thing. ...Read more

What are warts? Virus infections? If so, how come a wart doesn't keep spreading wider until one covers your whole hand?

The wart virus: Warts are caused by various strains of human papilloma virus(hpv). There are more than 60 strains and a few are linked with cervical and other cancers. Our immune system helps keep them in check, so it's rare for them to cover an entire hand. People with problems of the immune system often have much more trouble with warts. Wart treatments depend on immune system help to clear warts. ...Read more
