Exercise, Anti-Bacterial Soap, and Two Year Olds

Wow, two posts in a week!

Anyway… This past week, I’ve read some very interesting science and health-related articles. I thought I’d share them with you here:

News Bites: Chocolate, Protein and the Brain, and Urban Farming

I’ve been reading a lot of interesting news tidbits, and thought I’d share. Today’s edition is mostly about food.

Kraft wants to take over Cadbury.

I also stumbled accross an article saying that high protein, low carb diets may contribute to Alzheimers Disease. It’s intriguing and surprising—but also just one study in mice, so the results should be interpreted with caution.

For a new spin on urban farming, look at Detroit. While I’m not moving to detroit anytime soon, the article is a fascinating read, and some of the arial photos are astounding. [Found via the NYT Idea of the Day Blog.]
