Weekend Link Love – Edition 150

Posted By Mark Sisson On July 10, 2011 @ 8:00 am In Weekend Link Love | 25 Comments

Have you ditched the Purel yet? Studies show [7] that carpet-bombing your microbial passengers with antibiotic soaps and hand sanitizers is counterproductive and even dangerous, while simple soap works best.

The United States Army banned Vibram Fivefingers [8] (and, if anyone actually has a pair, those Fila knockoffs). To be fair, they do allow other minimalist offerings.

Longtime reader Alex Shalman went strictly Primal and lost a bunch of weight and inches. Check his blog post [9] for detailed stat and food porn.

In pleasantly surprising news, the USDA concluded [10] that grass-fed cows are more environmentally friendly than feedlot cows.

My favorite research of the week [11]: tennis match grunting proven to negatively affect opponent’s performance. Of course, grunting positively affects other types of performance.

Second favorite [12]: better sleep improves athletic performance.

Have you been eating deep-fried wood pulp [13]?
