Cue up the Peaches and Herb: The Illinois Health Care Association is re-upping with the American Health Care Association, it was announced. Illinois went its separate ways a few years back to focus on the state’s awful Medicaid problems.

In other news, maybe we should make that steak even rarer: Researchers claim to have found a link between red meat and Alzheimer’s disease.
