A few more things worth reading — admittedly with a downbeat skew:

  • Killer cows: Fatalities caused by cattle in four U.S. states (CDC)
  • Mystery plague strikes French oysters, wiping out 90% of baby and juveniles (ProMed)
  • Planet of weeds (Harper’s/Quammen)
  • Your body wasn’t built to last, a lesson from human mortality rates (Gravity and Levity)
  • Iraq in throes of environmental catastrophe (LAT)
