Weekend Link Love – Edition 164

Installing an “Urban Jungle” play area, complete with trees, boulders, hills, and tunnels, has dramatically reduced the number of accidents and incidents of “pushing, hitting, and slipping” [7] at a Scottish primary school.

Why a sales pitch is best given on a steep hill [8].

A candid interview with a former Big Food exec [9] confirms what we basically already suspected to be true. Still, it’s nice to know for sure (or is it the opposite of nice?).

German scientists developed a new method for testing pesticide residue in farmed fish [10] fed conventional vegetable matter; the results of the first studies to use the new method will soon be published. Here’s hoping I don’t have to rewrite my old post [11], eh?

Bloomberg posted a nice summation [12] of the research on the addictive properties of processed junk food. One startling highlight: rats preferred hits of sugar/saccharine to hits of cocaine (and you know those research scientists have access to the pure stuff).

Paleo foods to feed a cold [13]: saltine-less edition.

In a recent NPR report [14], we learned about a breastfeeding mother who fixed her kid’s acid reflux by giving up all soy, wheat, and dairy. Read that article, then go back to their hit piece on paleo [15], and laugh/cry at the absurdity of it all.
