This week's compendium

Here’s this week’s compendium. This week…

1. on Francis Lam started a series on baking [1]. How exciting. And delicious.

2. evidence emerged that the US baseball legend Lou Gehrig probably didn’t have the disease named after him, i.e. Lou Gehrig’s Disease [2]. Whoops.

3. posted an astoundingly wondrous series of diptych photographs [3]. Fantastic, fantastic.

4. the journal Circulation published research showing a moderate intake of high cocoa chocolate was associated with reduced heart failure risk [4a]. It can modestly lower blood pressure, too [4b].

5. and Tai Chi was reported to help fibromyalgia [5]. Sure beats medication.

6. an Iowa egg producer recalled 380 million eggs following a Salmonella enteritidis outbreak affecting hundreds of people [6]. It’s Food Inc. in action, folks.

7. an Australian survey reported in the latest MJA concluded the severity of sleep apnoea is increasing. Why? Because obesity’s increasing [7]. It’s Food Inc. in action, folks.

8. this beautiful profile of beautiful darling Kate went up on a fellow crafter’s blog [8]. I am so proud of Kate.

Finally, I wish you, dear Farmdoc’s Blog readers, a wonderful week.

Thanks for the link in number 6. The world has gone mad and I fear for the future of our spray and wipe generation but considering we are playing a part in it, I am so glad we have bought an egg washing machine.
Thanks also for number 8. I'm proud of you too. XX
