A few of the recent pieces I’ve liked:

Deborah Blum at Slate: Bring Back the Poison Squad (“If we look back to a similar crisis of food safety in the last century, we see that federal regulators were willing to risk their lives to protect the rest of us.”)

Jenny Gold of Kaiser Health News on NPR: In Pa., Low-income Adults Soon May Be Uninsured (and check out Steve Inskeep’s interview with Julie Rovner, which followed this story when it aired)

Jim Morris, Chris Hamby, and M.B. Pell at the Center for Public Integrity: Regulatory Flaws, Repeated Violations Put Oil Refinery Workers at Risk

The Fat Nutritionist: If only poor people understood nutrition! (via Casaubon’s Book)

Greg Jaffe in the Washington Post: Lt. Gen. John Kelly, who lost son to war, says U.S. largely unaware of sacrifice
