So, yesterday in the NYTimes Magazine there was a quite good article on the state of epidemology and what it means (particularly as it is used in the media).
Do We Really Know What Makes Us Healthy? - NYTimes

Oddly enough (or not-so-oddly-enough), the LATimes -- today -- had an article on what we know vs. what we don't as well.
Scientists do the Numbers - LATimes

What's fascinating for me is the fact that our mainstream media is allowing us to question, encouraging us to question. Facts are slippery, interpretations vary, and people should begin to think for themselves after weighing sources.

So, I say, "hurray!" And, back to my pork rinds, suckas.
