Q:

What is a "Kosher kitchen"?

A:

A kosher kitchen is one in which dairy and meat cannot mix. The kitchen includes two sinks that are ideally not in close proximity to each other.

A kosher kitchen also includes two dishwashers and two ovens in order to further prevent the mixing of meat and dairy. Sometimes a kosher kitchen has two refrigerators. Separate counters next to each dishwasher or sink are also ideal so that food can be prepared in a kosher fashion. Counter tops should be made from granite instead of porcelain or porous tile. The ovens in a kosher kitchen should also be self-cleaning so that they can be left on during the Sabbath hours, which are from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday.

    Why does eating salty foods make you thirsty?

    A:

    Eating salty foods makes people thirsty because excessive sodium pulls the water out of their body's cells, according to Indiana Public Media. This occurs because the fluid outside the cells becomes saltier, and salt acts like a magnet to water. The cells send chemical messengers to the brain that indicate that they are losing water. The brain realizes the body needs more water and activates the thirst mechanism.
