The same general food safety guidelines apply to hot dogs as to all perishable products — "Keep hot food hot and cold food cold."

When you leave the grocery store with hot dogs, head straight home and refrigerate or freeze them immediately. If there is no product date, hot dogs can be safely stored in the unopened package for 2 weeks in the refrigerator; once opened, only 1 week. For maximum quality, freeze hot dogs no longer than 1 or 2 months. And, of course, never leave hot dogs at room temperature for more than 2 hours and no more than 1 hour when the temperature goes above 90°F.

The leading cause of vision loss in the United States for people over age 60 is Macular degeneration.  Macular degeneration is the deterioration of the central region of the retina called the macula.  A “healthy” macula is about the size of this letter “O,” and is necessary for centra vision.  In age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the central vision becomes blurry.   Nearly 2 million Americans have vision loss from advanced AMD, and another 7 million with early AMD are at risk for vision loss.                                     &nbs
