    WEDNESDAY, April 23, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The deaths of well-known people offer an opportunity to educate the general public about disease detection and prevention, a new study suggests. Researchers surveyed 1,400 American men and women after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011 and learned that more than one-third of them sought information about his cause of death or information about cancer in general soon after his death was reported.

From the Alberta Turkey Producers

There are many variations on the roasted turkey, but this basic recipe from the Alberta Turkey Producers is a good starting point.

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

2. If you wish to stuff your turkey, do so lightly and just before it goes into the oven. Never stuff your turkey the day or night before. Stuffing can be prepared separately in a covered baking dish. Place in the oven during the last 1/2 hour of the roasting time.

3. Place clean turkey, breast up, on a rack in a shallow pan.

4. Insert oven-safe meat thermometer into the thickest part of the inner thigh, just above, but not touching, the thigh bone.

5. Roast uncovered - or loosely covered with foil. If you choose to baste your turkey, limit the number of times you open and close your oven - once an hour is sufficient. Opening the oven will alter the length of cooking time.

6. Roast until thermometer reads 170 degrees F for an unstuffed turkey or 180 degrees F  for a stuffed turkey.

7. Remove turkey when cooking is completed and let stand 15 to 20 minutes to allow the juices to set.
