- Gary Taubes has a new book -- Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It -- and he's got a blog to go along with it. He's posted two substantial posts: The Inanity of Overeating and Calories, fat or carbohydrates? Why diets work (when they do). Both posts are awesome and well worth reading.
- A pediatrician makes a case for giving probiotics to children on Kevin, MD.
- Hardships of a Nation Push Horses Out to Die: It's a story about abandoned horses in Ireland, and a sad follow-up to my post on the Perverse Effects of the Horse Slaughter Ban. For me, it's not merely the suffering of these fabulous animals, but the fact that so much equine potential is wasted.
- Finally, I'd be remiss not to show you this video demonstrating why fried gnocchi is a bad idea. (No one was hurt, and I love the guy's laughter!)
