Thanks for the link, Dan! :-)

The article on salt was fascinating. Nice and sciency.

The piece on the Food Pyramid was not really news but I enjoyed it anyway. Got a little sad though over one of the comments ... she cites three soft-tissue injuries and says "I may never run again" and I just think "did you not see a physical therapist? and if not, why not?" Those things can be FIXED.

Another commenter points out the vital distinction between carbs and starches. So many people miss this. Not a distinction I guess so much as a subset. If you fill up on veggies and a little fruit, you are not going to miss the starches (grains, potatoes) nearly as much, AND you are not going to have blood-sugar spikes (unless you are preparing your veggies with added sugar).
