Quick links: bacteria, viruses and fungi

This is the very first “quick links” post on this blog and I plan to do this at least three times a week, it’s part of breaking the isolationism the Four-eyed Journal has been in since like ever. So it’s time to spread the link loves! 😀

Ed Yong has a piece about how bacteria in our guts could be linked to obesity. Have read something about this issue before, too bad I lost the links, none the less Ed makes a good point in that this is just another positive step in understanding the workings of our bodies and we should not stop here.

On Neatorama, Alex asks what could go wrong now that scientists have revived the Spanish Flu virus. Excellent question, though I’m sure (and hope) that the scientists have lots of good reasons why they resurrected another mass-killer bug. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

chez mistral makes a connection between Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and tries to look at how global warming is affecting wine growing. Wine enthusiasts would probably get interested in global warming once they realize that it directly affects the quality and price of wine.

Well that’s it for now, more link loves coming soon.
