People who cook real food and eat it at the table like human beings instead of eating processed garbage in front of a screen like drooling automatons have a lower risk of obesity. Good to know.

Wichita roads are friendlier to cyclists. I've experienced this myself, and I've meant to write a letter to the Eagle thanking the city and its drivers for not killing me, but now it's taken care of. *washes hands*

Obese people who "self stigmatize" may be at higher metabolic risk. This is an interesting hypothesis. Intuitively, I believe it; there's so much undeserved self-hatred out there among people who weigh more than they want to. But the sample size of this paper makes me suspicious. It has the smell of p-value hunting.

Aggressive treatment of subclinical hypothyroidism with levothyroxine in pregnancy probably doesn't result in smarter kids. This is disappointing.

Taxing sugared drinks makes people drink less insect bait. Go figure.
