Saturday Stories: Mortality, Brain Training and Penises

A thoughtful piece from the New York Times by Paul Kalanithi on how long he's got left.

A great piece by Jordan Gaines Lewis in Slate on whether or not online brain games actually help brains.

L.V. Andersen, also in Slate, with a great piece and my vote for headline of the week, exploiting men's insecurity about their penises is a terrible way to promote vegetarianism.

[And if you don't follow me on Facebook or Twitter, a bunch of extras from me:

Here's my case from US News and World Report on why I'm not so excited about Michele Obama's partnership with Subway

Here's my debut piece from Civil Eats on just who exactly is teaching your children "Energy Balance 101"

Here's me on CTV News chatting with Leanne Cusack in two segments - one about badvertising and the other about our Family Reset program.

And here's a lengthy interview I did with my friend Barry Dworkin on childhood obesity and our office's Family Reset program]
