  • How the FDA Manipulates the Media <<The use of close-hold embargoes by government and scientific institutions is disturbing, as it has the effect of turning news reporting into advertising for these agencies. Hopefully the news organizations start to take the high road here. (Scientific American)
  • Plenty to Lose in Discussion of Weight and Self-Esteem <<Ever wonder how to talk to someone you care about about their health? Be very careful, you’re walking a fine line. (NY Times)
  • Developing a More Flexible Mind <<Excellent advice. If you don’t know the concept of being mentally flexible, definitely give this a read. (Zen Habits)
  • Donald Trump Doesn’t Understand Food <<Good summary of how both US presidential candidates stand on food issues. Neither is particularly strong in this regard, but Trump is far worse. Food regulation is incredibly important, as we’ve repeatedly seen that Big Food is incapable of regulating itself. (The Atlantic)
  • Activity Trackers May Undermine Weight Loss Efforts <<Long-term use of activity trackers appear to be linked to decreased physical activity in people trying to lose weight. More research should be done on why this is, but I would guess that if the data is perceived as a form of judgment (i.e. I’ve failed) rather than a data point (i.e. I didn’t hit my target today) it could be very demotivating. What are your thoughts? (NY Times)
  • Do Blood Glucose Levels Affect Hunger and Satiety? <<If you’re still married to the idea that carbs are bad because they make you want to eat more you may want to read this. (Whole Health Source)
  • Does Sparkling Water Have a Downside? <<Not really, although personally I avoid water in cans and plastic bottles because of BPA. (NY Times)
  • How to Clean and Maintain Cast Iron <<Soap is allowed! Woo hoo! (Serious Eats)
  • Mouse Diet Studies Aren’t Conclusive For Mice Let Alone People <<Biology is complex and you need to be very careful in how you interpret studies making bold claims. (Weighty Matters)
  • Thai chicken laksa <<One of the tastiest sounding recipes I’ve come across in awhile. (Jamie Oliver)
