  • Nothing quite says fast food breakfast like greasy meat, syrup and carbs.

    Taco Bell has plans to roll out their new breakfast menu in the U.S. starting March 27. Fast food fanatics will be happy to know it includes the chain's legendary Waffle Taco, currently available at select locations only.

    The Waffle Taco includes scrambled eggs, a sausage patty or bacon, melted cheese and syrup folded into a waffle. Yum!

    The sad news? Canadians won't get a chance to taste the treat.

  • Should Canada raise its drinking age to 21?

    Should Canada raise its legal drinking age to 21 like the U.S.?New U.S. research is adding weight to the argument that Canada should raise the legal drinking age to 21.

    The Boston University study shows that the current legal drinking age in the United States saves lives by reducing drunk driving deaths among youth and also lowering rates of underage drinking.

    The researchers reviewed studies published since 2006 and compared them against drunk driving and underage drinking rates prior to 1988, when 21 became the official legal drinking age. Prior to this time, each state independently set their own drinking age at 18, 19 or 20.

    "The evidence is clear that there would be consequences if we lowered the legal drinking age," says lead researcher William DeJong.

    "This debate really should be declared over," he tells the Boston Herald.

    There has been considerable debate around the topic in Canada with some special interest groups in favour of raising the legal drinking age to 21.

  • Can brushing your teeth help prevent arthritis?

    A new study claims that brushing you teeth could lower your chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis. (Thinkstock)Do you have impeccable oral hygiene? We've got some good news for you. Not only are you staving off tooth decay and gum disease, but you may also be lowering your chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis.

    Scientists at the University of Louisville have discovered that the same bacteria that causes gum disease produces a unique enzyme which may increase a person's chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis.

    The study, which was conducted on mice, shows the bacteria P. gingivalis causes the worsening of a type of arthritis that is equivalent to rheumatoid arthritis in humans.

    "This research does appear to have broken new ground in suggesting a plausible mechanism that links gum disease to arthritis, something that has been suggested for years but has never been proven," reports National Health Service, a branch of the U.K. government.

    Previous studies suggest that gum disease is at least two times more common in rheumatoid arthritis
