A few of the recent pieces I’ve liked:

Patricia Callahan and Trine Tsouderos in the Chicago Tribune: Chronic Lyme disease: A dubious diagnosis (via Orac, who critiques the backlash against the article)

The Economist: Migrant farm workers: Fields of tears

Christina Larson in Yale Environment 360: In China, a New Transparency on Government Pollution Data

Tracy Weber and Charles Ornstein at ProPublica: Med Schools Flunk at Keeping Faculty off Pharma Speaking Circuit

Adam Serwer in The American Prospect: Necessary and Proper (“Liberals can’t make an effective constitutional case for the individual mandate without noting that health care presents a genuinely federal problem.”)

  1. Interesting article on Lyme disease. It seems to be a growing problem and a difficult conditions to cure. I have heard of a product that has claimed to have some success with it. The product is called MMS and the website http://www.mmshealthy4life.com has some good information about treating various illness and the product MMS… Worth the look if you suffer from this condition.

  2. Comment 2 above seems to be an advertisement for yet another woo ‘cure.’ The Lyme disease article on Orac’s blog referred to above teaches us to mistrust such miracle cures for ill-defined diseases (however painful they may be to the sufferer).
