Things That Interested Me This Week: 10-20-11

Since I missed a weekly post, it seems as if there were dozens of interesting things one after the other. Here are just a few of the things that caught my eye the last two weeks…

The biggest was “Are there ‘safe starches’?” Intermittent fasting, glucose hysteresis (for nerds only), longevity, heart problems for endurance athletes, leptin and sepsis, fructose, thyroid, low-carb perspectives, fair-skinned vitamin D deficiency, muscle loss and dieting, foods that boost immunity and the Perfect Health Diet (with ice cream recipe).
