My research this summer consists of reading health-blogs ALL day. Oh, it’s interesting, but I’m going to need a break at some point from reading about health, right? Most of the books on my bookshelf right now are about AIDS…so help me out – what interesting books are YOU reading?

OK, ok, this one IS about health but it looks enjoyable! I’ll have to check out “Never Shower in a Thunderstorm: Surprising Facts and Misleading Myths About Our Health and the World We Live In” By Anahad O’Connor (The “Really?” Columnist of The New York Times).

The Times intrepid health reporter investigates the truth about sex, eating, exercise, and other health conundrums. For more than two years, The Times “Really?” columnist Anahad O’Connor has tracked down the facts, fictions, and ocasional wisdom cures, and other medical mysteries. Now he opens up his case files to disclose the experts’ answers on everything from which of your bad habits you can indulge (sitting too close to the television does not hurt your eyes) to what foods don’t pack the punch advertised (you can lay off the beet juice!).
