The weekly carnival of all that’s good about science in the blogosphere is up again, and there are things of peripheral interest to us.
- The world, it seems, is full of Pepper Mild Mottle Virus, and so are many people. But can a plant virus make people sick? Vincent Racaniello says “maybe”. Pass the Tabasco.
- And Christie Wilcox detoxifies some of the myths around choosing to eat better. I’m not sure they apply to the people whose malnutrition we’re most concerned about, but still a useful round-up of the stories we tell ourselves about food. Pass the carrot sticks.
As ever, even though I’ve singled out the Science for the People posts that are of direct interest, there’s lots more on offer there, so go, and indulge yourself.
