Here are this week’s most interesting discussions of peer-reviewed research in health and medicine:
- There seems to be no shortage of natural disasters over past years, or at least the media’s reporting of such occurrences. An interesting aspect to natural disasters is the health impact on the surviving population. In a fascinating post James Byrne of Disease Prone discusses the relationship between floods and the spread of disease.
- Previous evidence suggested that obesity can spread from peer to peer via social networks. New evidence discussed by the Neuroskeptic suggests the same might be true of anorexia.
- As someone who has dealt with anxiety for many years and who has just picked up yoga, I was very interested to read Jennifer Gibson’s post on Brain Blogger about the effect of yoga on anxiety reduction.
Come back next week for more riveting discussions of health and medicine!
