Web site AlterNet interviews health author Michael Pollon to discuss the state of the food industry and its relation to our health. The interview offers several interesting health tips, but if you're looking for quick and simple rules of thumb to add to your health regimen, Pollon suggests one tip that's sure to help: "don't eat any food that's incapable of rotting." This idea subscribes to the common wisdom that the more processed a food is (and therefore, less susceptible to rot), the less healthy it is. Granted, this isn't an altogether new idea (nor is it without exceptions), but it is a good rule of thumb to keep in mind next time you're reaching into your snack pantry. Check out the article for more useful, common sense tips for staying healthy with your food choices, and share your best healthy-eating rules of thumb in the comments.

Russell Robinson's 15 points led No. 5 Kansas to a 109-51 thrashing Monday of Texas Tech in Lawrence, Kan. It was the second time in three games the Red Raiders suffered the most lopsided loss in school history.
Texas Tech (16-13, 7-8 Big 12) lost 98-54 at Texas A&M last week -- at the time the biggest loss in school history. In between the record losses, the Red Raiders upset then-No. 5 Texas 83-80.
For the Jayhawks (27-3, 12-3), it was the biggest victory in a conference game in their storied history. All but one of the 16 players in uniform for Kansas scored.
The victory gave the Jayhawks, who shot 60 percent (40-for-67), a 20-0 record at home. It was the 14th time in the 53-year history of Allen Fieldhouse that Kansas has finished unbeaten at home.
