Good reading for today:
Ken Sepkowitz on why we should eat more excrement. Truly, he makes an excellent point. One other thing that he doesn’t mention is that as we get safer the outbreaks that exist look worse and worse. Has anyone done a study of whether eating charred foods protects against cancer? (possibly better detox mechanisms?). I’ll be on the lookout for one too.
Also good reading: yesterday’s WP article on the DDT – breast cancer link. It’s a pretty good story so I won’t bore you with summarizing.
