Saturday Stories

Cariobrief's take on how Nintendo bought the American Heart Association.

The BBC's report on how parents should be more worried about childhood inactivity than murder (and while I understand the comparison, I'd love to see the source of their 1 in 3 kids who are inactive will develop serious health problems as a consequence statistic).

Science Based Medicine weighs in on whether or not cell phone use causes brain cancer.

If you only read one article about soda taxes, make it this one from the New York Times (though I find it laughable the columnist points to the American Heart Association as a source of credibility given their sell out to Nintendo and their atrocious Heart Check program)

Dr. David Katz explains why the latest study that suggests red meat might not be so bad for us, might not be such a good study.
