Health News of the Day, part 2

Health News of the Day is a daily summary made from the selected links I post on Twitter. It is in a bullet points format with links to the original sources which include 350 RSS feeds that produce about 2,500 items per day:

Wii sports video games may burn as many calories as moderate-intensity exercises such as brisk walking

Folic Acid (B9) and Vitamin B12 May Increase Cancer Risk -- Folic acid supplements may raise cancer risk and Selenium Supplements May Raise Heart Risk -- Selenium and human health - there is inextricable U-shaped link with status (don't supplement normal levels) - Lancet

Pharaoh to Friend: ‘Who’s Gonna Know I Ate French Fries?’ - Headline of the day, commenting on heart disease in mummies.

Universities asked how the practice of professors putting their names on others’ articles is different from plagiarism

Library in a Pocket: “It’s a surprisingly pleasant experience to read on a small screen” - I don't think so.

Medical news tweets are not research articles - they are 140-character messages - please always go to the original source, links, etc. Tweets and links do not represent endorsement, approval or support. Image source:, public domain.
