All of Us Big Healthy Giants
Sally sent me a link to an interesting New York Times article ("So Big and Healthy Grandpa Wouldn't Even Know You", Gina Kolata, 7/30/06) about our health compared to that of our recent ancestors. (Read it soon; the links typically expire after a couple of days.) The information is pretty interesting. I enjoyed how they did the graphs (linked along the left side; click on the link near each one to see the full thing) with plenty of explication to make clear what was being graphed, and nice low-key color schemes.
