I like to tweet random things during the week (follow me @MrEpid), but for those who don’t use Twitter, here are some interesting posts I’ve come across this past week:

  • Fooducate posts 12 disturbing facts about obesity, and proposes 5 actions we can take here
  • Travis Saunders asks if we can trust scientists who deliver TED talks, which I absolutely love, here
  • Researchers at Johns Hopkins look at if we can track public health outbreaks via Twitter here
  • Liveitactive writes a compelling post about balancing work and life to be  happier here
  • Epiren discusses the use of infographics and how we present (and can misrepresent) data here
  • Dr Arya Sharma asks whether it is ever appropriate to laugh at “fat jokes” here

Have a great weekend everybody!
