A reason for guarded optimism? I was interested to read on the dailySpark about a report out from the Journal of the American Medical Association that concludes, “The prevalence of high BMI for age among children and adolescents showed no significant changes between 2003-2004 and 2005-2006 and no significant trends between 1999 and 2006.” Tara Parker-Pope explores some of the possible reasons for the plateau in her Well blog in the New York Times.

On the farming front, the New York Times also offers a piece on urban rooftop farming: “Urban Farming, a Bit Closer to the Sun.”
