Eat eggs, don’t eat eggs; coffee yes, no? Sugar, steer clear. It's getting so we need a PhD in nutrition to know what we should be eating among conflicting reports.  Health Link examines the recommended changes to nutrition guidelines and help you make good food choices for optimal health. We’ll also have an update on peanut allergies, a potentially deadly condition.
