Blogs of the Day: Biosingularity and The Leaky Brain

It’s been a while since I’ve featured Blog of the Day so I guess it’s about time I featured some spots elsewhere from the blogsphere.

The first would be Biosingularity as it featured a health tidbit regarding the benefits of green tea in the fight against the Big C. Sure it might sound like one of those overused marketing lines by health drinks apart from forwarded email fodder involving the relative rarity of the condition among cultures with green tea traditionally included in their diets, (i.e. Japanese and Chinese,) and a lot of other such medical research and studies:

Concentrated chemicals derived from green tea dramatically boosted production of a group of key detoxification enzymes in people with low levels of these beneficial proteins, according to researchers at Arizona Cancer Center.

These findings, published in the August issue of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, suggest that a green tea concentrate might help some people strengthen their metabolic defense against toxins capable of causing cancer.

Another plus for the consumption of green tea.

The next would be abarclay12’s The Leaky Brain as it features a whole range of hilarious blog posts such as those compiled in her Team of The Week entries. In the Aug 10 Team of The Week for instance she features someone from Santa Fe at number 3:

Oh you’re gonna love this guy. His name is Bryan Connelly, and he was convicted of forgery charges in Texas. But we don’t care about that. We love Bryan because he wrote the judge at his trial a letter asking him TO KILL the prosecutor. Then, when the judge wouldn’t agree to kill the prosecutor, our friend Bryan wrote his defense attorney a letter asking him TO KILL the judge. How great is that??! In a very eloquent letter to his lawyer, Bryan wrote, “If you decide not to kill [the judge] for me, I will kill him myself, after I kill you.” This guy is for real, and I am in love with him.

In the July 27 serving, she features someone from Virginia at number 4:

This is the greatest story ever. The guy in the picture is Russell Tavares. Some dude called him a “nerd” over the internet, and Russ got in his car and drove 1300 miles from Virgina to Texas to confront John Anderson, his name-caller. The greatest part of the story is that every time he crossed a state border, he took a picture of the “Welcome to [State’s Name]” to prove he was on his way. When he got to Texas, he burnt Anderson’s trailer down. Some nerds are hardcore.

As with all other blogs I’ve featured, these ones should keep me reading through their vast archives for a while.
