Let’s not talk about the food: Seeking to compete with McDonald’s, Taco Bell will soon roll out a new breakfast menu. “We can turn the breakfast conversation into a two-horse race,” Taco Bell President Brian Niccol says.

Gag reflex: Speaking of breakfast, here’s a bit of medical news that might make some readers lose theirs: The odor of ear wax may be an indicator of health problems that include cancer (Page B2).

There also may be a connection between ear wax and diet — specifically, ear wax that smells like breakfast at Taco Bell.
