More facts, less fear

The new blog from the American Council on Science and Health, called Facts & Fears, is up and running. Add it to the list of sites doing a good job clarifying health news, dispelling misconceptions, and calling the media to task. The medical section is too sparse, and is too broad. Hopefully Facts & Fears will be just right.

Their writers have even weighed in on the obesity crisis that made the blog rounds last month, including a new take on the movie, Super Size Me. Check it out.
