  • “So, sometimes we settle for less than George Clooney or Heidi Klum.” Casey Rentz at The Lay Scientist asks do we REALLY want what we say we want, when it comes to choosing mates?
  • Travis Saunders of Obesity Panacea asks: Which Results in Healthier Food Purchases: Junk Food Tax or Health Food Subsidy?
  • Do birth control pills really change the brains of women? Or is it just scare-mongering? Scicurious of Neurotic Physiology investigates the question.
  • Genes for ADHD, eh? The Neuroskeptic writes, “These genes don’t so much cause ADHD, as protect against all kinds of problems, if you have the right variants. If you don’t, you might get ADHD, but you might get something else, or nothing, depending on… we don’t know.”

    I have to express my thanks to you for rescuing me from this type of incident. Because of scouting through the the web and coming across methods that were not productive, I assumed my entire life was done. Living without the presence of solutions to the issues you have sorted out as a result of this report is a crucial case, as well as the kind which might have negatively damaged my career if I had not discovered your site. The capability and kindness in touching the whole thing was excellent. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a thing like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for your expert and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to suggest the sites to any person who needs and wants support about this subject.
