Saturday Stories

Stories that managed to capture my minuscule attention span this week:

The Huffington Post covers a remarkable story of perserverance in a young man's quest for a Rhode's scholarship.

NPR with an absolutely fascinating read on the invention of osteopenia.

Skeptico publishes this year's Golden Woo awards (honouring the year's best in quackery).

Slate Magazine covers the "Vita Myth" (why buying lots of supplements not only gives you very expensive urine, but may be bad for your health)
