Health notes: Women hate their thights but love their cleavage
Two new films seek to educate consumers on just where their food comes from. “Labels Matter” encourages viewers to get behind the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered food in the US (our country currently does not require it), while “The Apple Pushers” documents the lives of immigrant street cart vendors selling produce in food deserts. You can watch “Labels Matter” online at www.justlabelit.org; “The Apple Pushers” is screening in New York and Boston this spring — visit www.applepushers.com for details.

To the races
Feb. 7 is the last day you can register for the TD Five Boro Bike Tour 2012, which takes place May 6. The 40-mile tour (it’s not a race, so there’s no pressure to speed through it) takes riders on a scenic trip throughout the city, where they’ll ride on closed streets amongst thousands of other bikers. Registration is done via lottery, so if you’re randomly selected you’ll hear by March 1, and then be given a week to complete your entry form. Visit www.bikenewyork.org to learn more.

Drink like a Giant
We hear that multiple Giants players are drinking Cheribundi, an all-natural tart cherry juice, after their games to help them recover. Tart cherries are loaded with antioxidants that are good for your heart, immune system and brain, and the drink has been proven to help reduce symptoms of arthritis in the knee. Thankfully, you don’t have to travel to Indianapolis to track down a bottle — pick one up at Whole Foods.
