We are relieved to report that all of the Mizkan Group employees in Japan and their families are safe and accounted for at this time. While there have been some minor injuries as a result of the earthquake and tsunami, none of those injuries are life-threatening.
Several of our Mizkan facilities in Japan have sustained minor damage, but all of them are still operational at this time. Production has been interrupted in some cases due to lack of power and other utilities or due to the inability to get on-time shipments of raw materials as a result of the disaster.

According to researchers, there is evidence that vinegar sinks risk factors that may lead to memory decline and dementia -- namely, high blood sugar, insulin resistance, diabetes and prediabetes, and weight gain. While vinegar does not confront Alzheimer's directly, studies at Arizona State University have found that vinegar can curb appetite and food intake, helping prevent weight gain and obesity. Swedish investigators agree. In one study, downing two or three tablespoons of vinegar with white bread cut expected rises in insulin and blood sugar by about 25 percent. Pour on the vinegar -- add it to salad dressings, eat it by the spoonful, even mix it into a glass of drinking water. Any type of vinegar works because it's the acidity that counts. -- Source: AOL Health and "100 SIMPLE THINGS YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT ALZHEIMER'S AND AGE-RELATED MEMORY LOSS" by Jean Carper.
