When energy expenditure is matched, “minimal intensity”, long-duration “walking and standing” had more beneficial effects on insulin action and blood lipids than “moderate to vigorous” cycling, according to a new study . Didn’t I tell you to move around a lot at a slow pace?
Exposure to “urban lighting” made birds reach sexual maturity faster . This study is highly interesting and relevant to our pursuit of health, but I was also happy to include the following quote: “City birds’ testicles were ready for action about 26 days earlier than those of their country-dwelling counterparts.”
Circulating levels of trans-palmitoleate, a fatty acid found in dairy – particularly grass-fed dairy – were associated  with higher LDL but lower triglycerides, fasting insulin, blood pressure, and less diabetes. I know which bunch of biomarkers I’d rather have.
How to train your mind  to “scan” for the good stuff in our lives as a default, instead of the bad stuff. Also, something about Tetris.

In my new book The Primal Connection, I bemoan the fact that we no longer eat dirt. This guy  has done something about that (albeit with pasteurized, homogenized dirt).
How do you feel about this picture  of lotus seeds? If you suffer from trypophobia  (which, from what I can tell, describes the “fear of holes with stuff inside them” and, according to some researchers, may have some evolutionary basis) you might be recoiling in disgust. I’m all for the evincing of disgust at the sight of a crumpet, but my only response to the inside of an uncleaned cantaloupe half is hunger.

Wouldn’t this be funny to try to explain to our great-great-grandparents: “I have a device in my back pocket that can access the collective knowledge of all mankind. I use it to look at pictures of cats and get in arguments with people I don’t know.”
-Indeed . But let’s be honest: who doesn’t love cat pictures?
