A few of the recent pieces I’ve liked:
A special investigative series by several reporters at Center for Public Integiryt/iWatch News and NPR: Poisoned Places: Toxic Air, Neglected Communities
Deborah Blum at Speakeasy Science: About Pepper Spray (also see her followup, Fox News Food Products)
Judy Stone at the Scientific American Guest Blog: Should pepper spray be put on (clinical) trial?
Tracy Weber and Charles Ornstein at Pro Publica: Florida Sanctions Top Medicaid Prescribers — But Only After a Shove
And just in time for Thanksgiving travel and turkey consumption:
Simon Rogers at the Guardian Data Blog: US road accident casualties: every one mapped across America
Maryn McKenna at Superbug: More MRSA found in US Retail Meat
If you’re celebrating the holiday, travel safely, wash your hands before you eat, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
One thought on “Worth Reading: Poisoned Places and Pepper Spray”
Definitely worth reading is David Tuller’s blogpost on Prof. Racianello’s Virology Blog on CDC’s long history of malfeasance re ME (“CFS”). Can you please do a blog post on this very important story? It’s essentially a modern Tuskegee experiment. Thank you!
