    Herbalife shakes, tea and coffee at Corner Nutrition in Evansville

    EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Alex and Devin Bullard had a business. They just needed the perfect spot to open it.   The Bullards are from a tiny town in Mississippi and, after much research, they decided Evansville was that spot – so they moved on up and Corner Nutrition opened in Hebron Office Plaza in September. The Bullards were sure the smoothie, coffee and tea shop, selling Herbalife products, would be a hit. Devin’s brother has a shop in Mississippi and his sister has one in Tennessee. “I worked for Devin’s brother for a year and a half,” Alex said. “I was

    On Nutrition: Protein and vegetarian diet concerns | Health

    Dear readers: I am encouraging all who can, and haven’t, to get vaccinated against the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease known as COVID-19 that’s wreaking havoc around the world. The longer significant numbers of people refuse to take the shot, the greater the risk that increasingly nasty variants can emerge. Even more worrisome, the unvaccinated risk serving as vectors to infect their own families, friends and any vulnerable people around them. I have followed the research behind the vaccines’ development and have confidence in their safety and efficacy. This is good science, marvelously developed with fantastic speed. Personal freedoms notwithstanding,
