Saturday Stories: Bug girl, Brawley and Despain


Bug girl amusingly explains why there never actually were ground up beetles in Starbucks

An absolutely must watch hour long video (yes I realize I said must watch and hour long together) from Dr. Otis Brawley from his keynote address at last week's Association of Health Care Journalists on how regarding American healthcare, "the system really isn't failing, quite honestly, failing is the system".

David Despain covers the recent sugar wars debate at the Experimental Biology 2012 conference.  Short version - scientists don't buy the hype.
