Links this week:
- Two pieces on diet. First, an excellent article on how the poisons in vegetables might be making you stronger. Second, a new study in the fat-carb wars.
- Andrew Gelman on the strength of statistical evidence.
- Two excellent podcasts. Gregory Clark on social mobility (and the genetics behind it) and Paul Sabin on the Simon-Ehrlich bet. Some of my thoughts on Julian Simon are here and here.
- Economists are happier. The reasons? More cash and religion.
