PTSD

Nov 8, 2017

November 11 is Veteran’s Day.  As we honor those who have served our country in the armed forces, let us also remember an ongoing battle many veterans continue to fight: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD.

According to the Veteran’s Administration, since 9/11, nearly 30 percent of the Iraq and Afghanistan War Veterans treated at V.A. hospitals and clinics have been diagnosed with PTSD.

Just about every major holiday in America is associated with its own signature version of what Jonathan Bartlett, author of The Cook’s Dictionary and Culinary Reference, calls “those sugary confections that feed our ‘sweet tooth,’ rot our teeth, and lift our spirits.”

At Christmas it’s the candy cane. On Valentine’s Day it’s the chocolate heart. For Easter it’s marshmallow Peeps. And come Halloween it’s candy corn.
