  • Overdosing on Poppy Seeds
    The opium poppy used to make heroin is the same opium poppy used to make muffins and bagels. Does this mean that poppy seed muffin we may have had for breakfast contained a powerful narcotic? The idea that poppy seeds could serve as the source of appreciable amounts of codeine/morphine was not given much credence […] (...more)

  • The Healthiest Diet for Weight Control
    We know that vegetarians tend to be slimmer, but there's a perception that veg diets may somehow be deficient in nutrients.

  • Why the Egg-Cancer Link?

  • How Eggs Can Impact Body Odor
    I previously lampooned the egg industry PR campaign that tried to promote eggs as a source of eyesight-saving nutrients such as lutein, by noting that a single spoonful of spinach had as much as nine eggs (see Egg Industry Blind Spot).
