A few of the recent pieces I’ve liked:

Two Nature news features on antibiotic-resistant bacteria, by Maryn McKenna and Beth Mole, respectively: Antibiotic resistance: The last resort and MRSA: Farming up trouble

David Leonhardt in the New York Times: In Climbing Income Ladder, Location Matters

Jim Morris at the Center for Public Integrity: Industry muscle targets federal ‘Report on Carcinogens’

Stephanie Lee in the San Francisco Chronicle/ Reporting on Health: Poverty, health struggles in scenic Mendocino

Charles Kenny & Justin Sandefur in Foreign Policy: Can Silicon Valley Save the World? (“Defeating global poverty is the latest start-up trend. But is there really an app for that?”)
