In this episode’s News & Views, we look at a study that says junk food’s not so bad; another study that says sugar is toxic; and a disturbing report that shows mortality rates are on the rise for middle-aged white Americans. In the Shinrin-yoku segment, we look at stats about how much time kids are spending in nature. Our Moment of Paleo is about expectations. After the Bell features writer Andrew Solomon. Plus, a “superhuman” documentary and a book recommendation, too.
