A few weekend posts worth digging back for:
- Shelley and Evil Monkey discuss the theory that exposure to environmental toxins such as pesticides could be responsible for the rise in prevalence of Parkinson’s disease, especially among the young.
- Janet continues the discussion of the position of women in the sciences with a post on a Boston Globe story about the intimidation of a (female) MIT job candidate by a (male) nobel laureate.
- Joseph describes an uproar in Peru over promising anti-diarrheal drugs; naysayers oppose the drugs on the grounds that they are manufactured using gentic modification. He plans to follow up with a post on the safety of genetically modified crops.
