Weekend Link Love – Edition 206

Research of the Week

So a meta-analysis [7] of around 240 studies just concluded that organic probably offers little nutritional benefit over conventional, leading to numerous “I told you so” quips and smug articles proclaiming organic to be a huge scam. But who ever thought organic was about increasing vitamin content? What about the other results of the study – the fact that conventional food tends to have upwards of 180 times more pesticide residue than organic food – that were mostly ignored by the media?

As told [8] on a recent blog post from Suppversity, pre-workout baking soda allowed trainees to squeeze out 22 extra lower body reps.

Interesting Blog Posts

Who’s up for a toxoplasma love party [9]? I’ll bring the infected rats and cat poop.

Anastacia from PrimalMedEd recently wrote a nice post addressing all the evidence “for” and against the saturated-fat-will-clog-your-arteries-and-murder-small-children hypothesis. Go check it out [10], or pass it along to anyone who subscribes to the aforementioned nonsense.

Media, Schmedia

“‘Published’ and ‘true’ are not synonyms,” claims Science Exchange, a new company that seeks to test the accuracy of published studies [11] by attempting to reproduce their results.

P.K. Subban, a pro hockey player, follows a pretty Primal way of eating [12]: “pretty much meat and vegetables, healthy fats” with a few yams thrown in for good measure. Oh, yeah, and there’s also the whole cow that he eats every summer.

Everything Else

Just what we need: more soybean oil-drenched battery farmed chicken in wheat [13]!

I really like how these guys [14] describe epigenetics. Food is information (to our cells, to our genes) about our environment.

  • Listening to Your Body [17] – It’s always trying to tell you all sorts of stuff, but are you listening?
  • Why Self Experimentation Matters [18] – It’s ultimately the only way to get study results that definitely apply to you. Plus, access to the full text is usually free.

Comment of the Week

This is definitely an article for me. I’ll be sure to read it later.

– Well done, Moshen [19]. I was expecting (and received) a deluge of similar comments, but the simplicity of yours really worked. I wonder, though – did you ever end up reading?
