Distinguished scholar, microbiologist and Rutgers University professor Dr. Don Schaffner would like to impart some personal wisdom upon the general public in an effort to educate those who might benefit from his insight: He eats his peanut butter at room temperature only. "I personally just don’t like cold peanut butter, so I keep it out of the refrigerator," Schaffner said. And he’s not just talking Skippy, or Jif. He means natural peanut butter, without any preservatives.

It ain’t gonna kill ya.
