The concept implies that a conscious effort must be employed in the endeavor. For some it’s as easy as good people in a good location. But according to a recent study, the most common method of “making oneself at home” is by identifying with the objects that are kept in the home — and that kind of attachment can have significant consequences if left unchecked.

Grill with Caution: Wire Bristles from Barbecue Brushes Can Cause Serious Injuries

While many people view Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of the summer grilling season, they may not be aware of the dangers of eating food cooked on grills cleaned with wire-bristle brushes. A new study conducted at the University of Missouri School of Medicine identified more than 1,600 injuries from wire-bristle grill brushes reported in emergency rooms since 2002. Loose bristles can fall off the brush during cleaning and end up in the grilled food, which, if consumed, can lead to injuries in the mouth, throat and tonsils. Researchers advise individuals to inspect their food carefully after grilling or consider alternative grill-cleaning methods.
