Better 'butters': Tasty tests.
In Consumer Reports taste tests, many butter substitutes were low in calories, but high in saturated fats. Only a few tasted really good with a clean flavor and sharp melt.

Krill oil pills: How safe and effective?
Fish oil pills have a new rival: krill oil. Both have proven heart health benefits. But there are important differences when it comes to clinical evidence.
Get advice from health experts.



Health alert: Avoiding synthetic fragrances.
Synthetic fragrances in laundry and cleaning products may contain volatile organic compounds and phthalates that can cause serious health problems.

Are organic eggs worth the price?
The answer is a definite "yes," according to the experts at Consumer Reports. But not for the reasons you might think.
