What I’ve Been Reading: April 3

This is the longest piece I’ve seen on early puberty in girls. It’s an interesting read. Also, kinesiologists are crazy people.

Is government regulation of Chinese medicine practitioners lending undue credibility or just protecting the public? (in Australia) More studies like this one need to be done on Chinese medicine.

Odd, but funny. “An Open Letter to the Tiny White Man the Republican Party Has Sent to Live in My Underpants

“When Religion Collides with Medical Care”

Interesting interview about a book written by a historian on whether or not Jesus really existed. The two things I have problems with are the way he talks about questioning the existence of Jesus as if it’s crazy to do so and that he calls Jesus the most important Western historical figure. I don’t think it’s crazy to question the existence of a figure surrounded by ridiculous mythology. I also question the existence of Hercules, Helen of Troy and Odysseus.

Another post about the “Girls Around Me” app. I agree with the author, but I still think “Girls Around Me” is a good example of why we all need to be careful about what we reveal online. It’s a sort of ideological practical dichotomy.

In case you were curious I started reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks two days ago. It’s awesome. Definitely highly recommended.
