Weekend Link Love — Edition 513

Research of the Week Swapping out carbs for nuts does wonders. Doctors don’t listen to and often interrupt their patients. Young kids innately malign free riders.

Speaking of which, melatonin shows promise at staving off Alzheimer’s. Aspirin, too. If you want to be insulin-resistant, use a night light.

Picking a short list of favorites was challenging, so the Worker Bees and I threw our favorites into a pot and chose the first two. What do...
