A woman recently took a social media experiment she saw on TikTok to a strange new level by hatching a duck from a carton of store-bought eggs she purchased at her local grocery store.Inspired by someone who claimed to have done the exact same thing on TikTok, Adele Phillips of Wales in the UK went to her local supermarket in March and purchased a half-dozen duck eggs. She says she "had to keep them warm on the way home although as they had already been on a shelf for a few days." Then, using an incubator she'd bought online, she put the six eggs under a heat lamp and observed them for a few days, noticing at day 10 that one was beginning to show veins—a sign that she'd read meant that it was fertile.RELATED: This Is the Best Supermarket in America, New Survey SaysOn day 27, Phillips noticed movement in the egg, and told the BBC that 48 hours later, "I got home from work, and he was just sitting there." "He" was a baby duck.Phillips told Bored Panda: "I continued the process of turning it 3-4 times a day, spraying it with water and bringing it to room temperature, and putting it back in for a few hours before repeating the turning. I have footage of it developing over the process, on day 27-ish he started to peck holes in the egg and I was so excited! He was out 48 hours later when I got home from work, I am absolutely overjoyed as I didn't think this would work at all!"Phillips has named her new pet duck Braddock Morrison, after the breed of duck and the grocery store she bought the eggs from."When I first told people I had the egg, they were all having a laugh at me," Phillips told Wales Online. "My partner thinks it is really cool and was shocked that could happen from a supermarket egg."For her part, it sounds like Phillips was delighted at the outcome of her homemade agricultural experiment. "I am amazed and it really hit me when I saw come out of its shell. I thought, What have I done? It is just mad." One additional reflection she shared: "My pet could easily have been on someone's toast."For more, make sure to sign up for our newsletter, and check out the Best Supermarket in America.
If you visit a McDonald's location in a major city on May 19, you may not receive service as expected. That's because cashiers and cooks of the fast-food giant plan to strike in 15 cities across the country to demand a $15 minimum wage.Vice reports that the walk-out is timed to take place the day before McDonald's annual shareholder meeting, where the issue of $15 hourly wage is expected to be on the agenda. The workers, who are part of the Fight For $15 movement, will be walking off the job in Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Chicago, Detroit, Flint, Kansas City, St. Louis, Houston, Milwaukee, and other cities.RELATED: McDonald's Just Brought Back This Popular Menu DealThe fast-food industry is struggling with a major labor shortage, and McDonald's operators have had to come up with creative ways to attract new employees. One location in North Carolina has reportedly offered $500 sign-on bonuses for new hires, while a franchisee in Florida tried to entice prospective candidates with $50 payments just for showing up to the job interview. According to Business Insider, McDonald's is looking to hire 25,000 workers in Texas and another 8,000 in Tennessee, while competing with other chains also on hiring sprees.However, Fight For $15 members, who have been organizing for the minimum wage legislation since 2012, say there is an easy solution to McDonald's hiring woes—just pay your hourly workers a livable wage."Our message to shareholders on May 19 is you don't have to wait on legislation. You can pay us $15 an hour now, that should be the floor," one McDonald's department manager in Kansas City, Mo. told Vice.McDonald's had recently conceded the $15 minimum wage for its workers wouldn't hurt its bottom line."As long as it's done in a staged way and in a way that is equitable for everybody, McDonald's will do just fine with that," CEO Chris Kempczinski told investors in January.For more, check out This Is the One U.S. Capital That Still Doesn't Have a McDonald's, and don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get the latest restaurant news delivered straight to your inbox.

Cancer, one of the leading causes of death worldwide, is a disease in which some of the body's cells grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body, according to the American Cancer Society. There are more than 100 types—some deadlier than others. While there are a number of risk factors that can increase your chance of cancer, there is one that is preventable that can increase your risk of developing one of the 10 most common forms of the disease. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Had COVID and Didn't Know It.Obesity is Influential in the Development of 10 CancersAccording to a study being presented at The European Congress on Obesity (ECO) obesity is influential in the development of cancer. Over 437,000 adults in the UK were part of the large study, which found that however you measure obesity—larger waist and hip measurement or body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage—it is associated with an increased risk of the big C. The researchers utilized data from the UK Biobank prospective cohort study consisting of 54 percent women with an average age of 56, all of who were cancer free. They looked at six markers of obesity: BMI, body fat percentage, waist-to-hip ratio, waist-to-height ratio, and waist and hip circumferences. They followed up with the group an average of nine years later, finding that there were 47,882 cases of cancer, and 11,265 cancer deaths. They then determined that all of the obesity measures were associated with higher risk of 10 cancers. "We observed a linear association – the more severe obesity is, the higher the risk of developing and dying from these cancers, except for postmenopausal breast cancer," stated Dr. Carlos Celis-Morales, Study Lead, University of Glasgow, UK. "But there was a lot of variation in the effects of obesity on different cancers. This tells us that obesity must affect cancer risk through a different number of processes, depending on the cancer type."A 4.2 kg/m2 (men) and 5.1 kg/m2 (women) increase in BMI above 25 kg/m2 (which is defined as being overweight) increased the risk of stomach cancer by 35 percent gallbladder, 33 percent, liver, 27 percent, kidney, 26 percent, pancreas, 12 percent, bladder, 9 percent, colorectal 10 percent, endometrial 73 percent, uterine 68 percent, postmenopausal breast 8 percent, and overall cancer by 3 percent. RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" CancersMore Than 42% of Americans are Considered ObeseAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 42 percent of American adults are considered obese. In addition to cancer, health complications of obesity can include organ system damage leading to different issues such as diabetes, joint disease, gastroesophageal reflux, among others, Artur Viana, MD, Clinical Director Yale Medicine Metabolic Health&Weight Loss Program, previously explained to Eat This, Not That! Luckily, the deadly health condition is preventable. "The best way to prevent it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle with exercise (the recommendation is at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise, 5 times a week) and healthy diet, which is one that contains minimal processed food and focuses on whole foods such as lean protein, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits," suggests Dr. Viana. So stay healthy, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.

Trust us — we brewed 400(!) cups to find the best coffee makers. There are tons of trendy ways to brew coffee at home, from espresso makers to cold brew makers to single-serve brewers and French presses, but coffee drinkers know that an automatic drip coffee maker is a classic type of coffee maker for a reason: It can brew strong, full-flavored coffee in great quantities. We test coffee makers for the water temperature during the brew cycle and the brewing time as well as the temperature of the coffee at the end of brewing and during the keep warm cycle.

You may have heard about the recent recall of Jule's Foods Cashew Brie plant-based cheese products last month. The brand issued the recall voluntarily in late April after five people contracted Salmonella bacteria, which an investigation by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control linked back to Jule's Foods cashew cheeses.RELATED: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According To NutritionistsThe Southern California-based company quickly posted a public advisory through the Food and Drug Administration, suspended production of their five plant-based cheese products, and recommended that consumers should either dispose of their Jule's Foods cheese immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.Since then, the Tennessee Department of Health and the California Department of Public Health have also gotten involved to pursue more background. On Friday, May 7, a follow-up FDA advisory revealed that two more individuals have come down with Salmonella poisoning after eating the cheese, totaling seven Salmonella cases in California, Florida, and Tennessee. According to the FDA, the last illness onset occurred on April 8, and three individuals have been hospitalized.From the FDA's site:FDA investigators collected samples of several ingredients, in-process (or aging) products, and finished cashew-based products at the Jule's Foods facility. Samples of un-opened, raw cashews collected from the Jule's Foods facility also tested positive for the same strain of Salmonella Urbana as the TDH and CDPH product samples and two California clinical isolates.The FDA's traceback investigation led to the finding that "the cashews have been identified as the likely source of contamination in the Jule's Cashew Brie products." They added: "The FDA is working with the firm that supplied the cashews to ensure that all potentially contaminated product has been withdrawn from the market."They are advising consumers, restaurants, and retailers not to eat, sell, or serve the recalled foods and to make sure surfaces and utensils are well sanitized if they came into contact with these Jule's Foods products.Jules' Foods cashew-based cheeses were sold at "primarily independently owned grocery stores" in Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Nevada New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, and Texas. The FDA points out that Jule's Foods Cashew Brie may have reached states beyond those distribution points, as well.Yet one more lesson that food poisoning can truly turn up from the least expected sources—check out The 5 Most Alarming Grocery Store Food Poisoning Risks, Warns FDA.
