The Association for Dressings & Sauces (ADS), a trade association of salad dressing and sauce manufacturers and suppliers to the industry, welcomes May as National Salad Month. ADS recommends eating salads with salad dressings to help reach the American Heart Association’s recommended five to nine servings of vegetables and fruits per day.
Salads are an important factor in the quest for optimal health. But there’s scientific evidence that backs what consumers already know. Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles and Louisiana State University published a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association that found that those who eat salads and salad dressing have much higher levels of vitamins C, E, B6 and folic acid, all key nutrients in promoting a healthy immune system.
And salad dressings are a satisfying accompaniment to the healthy vegetables in salads, and many salad dressings provide an essential fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid, which helps protect women against fatal heart attacks, as well as the ever-important vitamin E, which offers numerous health benefits to salad worshippers. Researchers from Iowa State University and Ohio State University published a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that showed eating salad vegetables with some added fat, such as full-fat salad dressings, promotes the absorption of lycopene, alpha- and beta-carotenes, all of which aid in the fight against cancer and heart disease. And virtually all salad dressings are free of trans fats.
How does one make a healthy salad? Registered dietitian, Beth Hubrich, encourages eating a rainbow of colors in salads provides a host of varying nutritional benefits.
Dark leafy greens are more nutritious and contain folic acid, which helps tissues grow, and are a great source of vitamin C, potassium and fiber.
Red salad components like tomatoes are loaded with potassium, and contain lycopene, which helps protect against heart disease and cancer.
Orange and yellow veggies such as carrots contain carotenoids, which help reduce the risk of developing cancer.
Blue and purple vegetables like olives contain phytonutrients and antioxidants, which help protect from cancers and infections and help boost brain health and vision.

The California Supreme Court has upheld a state law allowing undocumented students to qualify for in-state tuition at state colleges and universities. The law stipulates that any student -- legally or illegally in the United States -- who attends a California high school for at least three years and graduates from it can receive the tuition break of about $23,000.
A correspondent for Fox News explains the case.
“About five years ago, some out of state students here in California, who were attending the University of California, sued, claiming that this subsidy was discriminatory and illegal. ... They said that under 1996 federal immigration reform law, Congress said, if states offer this tuition break to illegals, they have to give it to citizens. In the case of California and other states they didn’t do that.”
But defendants in the case argued the law doesn’t conflict with federal policy on two major points. First, they insisted in-state tuition is not a “benefit,” which is the word specifically used in the 1996 federal reform law. Second, they said the tuition break isn’t based on “residency,” also mentioned in the federal law, but on the high school attendance and graduation criteria -- and the California Justices agreed.

The website Inside Higher Ed quotes a lawyer who disagrees with the court’s decision -- and questions their motives.
“This ruling almost suggests that, if you’ve successfully evaded a law, then you’ve evaded it … It’s illogical to think that Congress passed this statute to make it easy for a state to evade enforcement. … The court came into this case saying, ‘Let’s find a way to uphold the California statute’ from the start.”
Yet even as the decision is being touted as a win for undocumented students in the United States, a writer for the non-profit California Watch says it still isn’t enough.
“[W]ithout authorization to work in the U.S., young college graduates will have a hard time using their college qualifications to get a job that matches their skill level – if they can find a job at all.”
And a writer for the Examiner points out a quote - ”cruel irony” to the ruling.
“...tuition is being increased to record levels. ... Such general increases will place even more students, documented and undocumented, in jeopardy of losing access to public higher education.”
A USC publication reports 70 percent of the students covered under the controversial law are either U.S. citizens or documented immigrants -- implying 30 percent may not be legal. But the LA Times says just 1 percent of California’s overall university population qualifies for it.
The case is expected to go to the U.S. Supreme Court, whose ruling could affect similar laws in nine other U.S. states.

Two out of three American teens are stressed and many don't feel equipped to handle it. When school is in session, teens are the most stressed group in the country. But the good news is, happiness skills can be learned, according to LG Electronics and the Greater Good Science Center at University of California Berkeley.
