The Arctic apple, a non-browning GMO varietal, is about to be unleashed upon the American public. Check out this impassioned plea  from the Caltons and sign their Change.org petition to keep it off store shelves.
A recent review  of dietary fats and health “in the context of scientific evidence” makes a few interesting and refreshing conclusions. They find “adverse health effects that have been associated with saturated fats in the past are most likely due to factors other than SFAs,” question whether the “dietary manipulation of serum cholesterol may be moot in view of numerous other factors that increase the risk of heart disease,” and discuss the considerable evidence that omega-6 PUFAs promote inflammation and augment disease while omega-3s “seem to counter these adverse effects.”
A new study discusses the interference of mobile communication technology – smartphones and the like – on the quality of face-to-face conversation , particularly during conversations about important topics.
What if kids didn’t have to wear shoes at school?  Would things fall apart?
If the food industry were to write a letter to the American consumer, it might look a little something like this .
I remember catching a ton of grief from the endurance community when I suggested that spending more than 4,000 calories a week doing exercise was counter-productive . That’s about 40 miles of running. In a recent Wall Street Journal article they suggest that 30 is the tipping point  (where the possible risks may outweigh the benefits).
The NY Times – plus countless physicians, Silicon Valley execs, and Matt Drudge – are wising up to the power of Esther Gokhale’s Primal posture .
Outside Magazine says paleo living is here to stay , citing a few familiar names. I tend to agree with their assessment of the situation.
That guy I discussed in a recent Dear Mark who’s hiking around the world responded in the comment board of that post . It’s a good, informative one.
Great, now the only reliably effective treatment for C. difficile infection that doesn’t involve removing a person’s colon is buried under hours of paperwork .
Remember that French study from last year that reported organ damage in GMO corn-fed rats? The journal that published it is apparently shoring up its standards by hiring a former Monsanto employee to sit on its editorial board .
One year ago (May 26 – Jun 1)
– Now that’s  an analogy.
