1) Make sure you grab your free iPad copy of the very first issue of the Paleo Lifestyle Magazine – there’s an interview in there with yours truly :)

2) X-Ray Scans at Airports Leave Lingering Worries

“One of the first things my doctor said was: ‘Do not go through one of those machines. There have not been any long-term studies. I would prefer you stay away from it.’”

3) Pocket EPA: iPhone Gadget to Measure Environmental Hazards

“The 4-ounce set of sensors called a “Personal Environmental Monitor” plugs into the headphone jack of an iPhone and measures nearby radiation, electromagnetic fields and humidity, as well as the amount of nitrates in your food left over from synthetic fertilizers.”

4) Asked to Get Slim, Cheese Resists (thank goodness!)

“Under pressure to reduce sodium and saturated fats in American diets — especially those of children — the cheese industry has tried to make products with less salt or fat that consumers will like.

It has not had great success.”

5) Don’t Freak Out, But CFLs Might Not Be Great for Your Skin

“it seems CFLs emit ultraviolet radiation that damages human skin cells. So, while CFLs are certainly the green choice, users should take some precautions, says Dr. Miriam Rafailovich.

Despite their large energy savings, consumers should be careful when using compact fluorescent light bulbs. Our research shows that it is best to avoid using them at close distances and that they are safest when placed behind an additional glass cover.”

6) Paleo Diet Blogger Sues State For Trying To Regulate His Advice

7) Your diet affects your grandchildren’s DNA, studies say

“Diet, be it poor or healthy, can so alter the nature of one’s DNA that those changes can be passed on to the progeny. While this much has been speculated for years, researchers in two independent studies have found ways in which this likely is happening.

The findings, which involve epigenetics, may help explain the increased genetic risk that children face compared to their parents for diseases such as obesity and diabetes.”

8) Olympic Differences in the Way Men and Women Move

“… men and women use different movement strategies in performing a single leg squat. The results are explained by structural differences in muscle and skeleton between men and women, and they also explain why women are at risk of greater knee injury and knee pain than men.”

9) The 15 Grossest Things You’re Eating (goodies such as: flame-retardant laced soda, paint chemicals, GMO rennet – from a cloned calf gene)

10) Is your daily shower making you sick?

“Showering and bathing in chlorinated water may expose us to even more chlorine and its byproducts than drinking this disinfected water”
