The Good, the Bad and the Metallic

Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:
There’s a country where obesity is highly desirable. Mineral cosmetics may be worse for you than the regular cosmetics. And we’re all abuzz over the latest mold. (You’ll see…)
Not Exactly Rubenesque
Sugar Shock  reports that in Mauritania, women are aggressively encouraged to be morbidly obese  – to the point of daily force-feeding of gallons of camel milk to female children in some cases. But before you go pointing fingers at this unhealthy and upsetting cultural oddity, remember that we are living in the land of the Heart Attack Grill  and the 2,700 calorie onion appetizer . The difference is that we seem to be willing to become obese.
We just can’t get over this burger. For the millionth time.
You’ve all seen those countless ads – and dozens of new drugstore products – touting the alleged natural, healthy value of mineral cosmetics. Ladies, this may be another case of quackery . We thought that whole marketing concept seemed a little weird. “Metal is healthier for your skin than…wait, metal?”
Mold You Don’t Want to Scrape Off and Sue Your Landlord Over
We recently linked to blogger Moldybluecheesecurds’ (yes) snippet on school nutrition reform. Moldy was nice enough to review our site , so we want to give a quick shout out! Be sure to visit this thought-provoking political ‘n social commentary blog if you’re into such topics as Iraq, oil, Uncle Sam, and global warming. We’re not really political (except when it comes to health!). But if you are, you just might like this frequently updated blog.
Meet Good News!
Think getting healthy is an uphill battle that makes summiting Everest look like a walk in the
park parking lot? Think again! These people did it , and you can, too!
“Formula” for Obesity
We Americans seem to be having trouble with babies these days (for the love of intact ceilings, don’t tell the Fuji). First, New Scientist reports  that the weight standards for babies are ridiculously high, paving the way for widespread obesity. And rotten teeth in the tiny tots is a growing problem  thanks to things like soda and “sports drinks”. Little chicks deserve better!
