Weekend Link Love – Edition 62

Medical News Today covers the growing Swedish fat wars. Methinks I need to translate the Primal Blueprint into Swedish!(thanks, Dr. Eades!)

Runner’s World takes a very serious (super serious) look into the misguided, dangerous, and downright un-American practice of running barefoot.

You may have read my tirade against ridiculous food labels, but it’s good to know that the New York Times is catching on to the charade. I must warn you: Some of the things the food execs say in this “Smart Choice” food label article may re-ignite your fear that Satan is alive, among us, and working for Kellogg’s.

The Times isn’t alone. ABC News (mainstream media releasing relevant health news? Is it backwards day?) has a piece on the growing problem of “functional foods,” junk food boosted with a couple vitamins and re-branded as healthy.

Perhaps the man-ape of 2001: A Space Odyssey should have thrown barbecue tongs into the air rather than a war club. NPR has a great podcast on why cooking makes us human.

Do the test numbers matter if you’re simply eating Primal? Free the Animal opens up the discussion on whether or not we should pay attention to our lipid test results. (Also check out Richard’s latest before and after shots.)

The NY Times seems to be on a roll, find out why cinnamon may be the next antibacterial cleanser.

And finally, in the facepalm department… Don’t just eat healthy foods like chili cheese Cheetos, make sure your kids sell them! (thanks, Sally!)
