Monthly Reading Roundup: February 2013

A few days late, but here is the second installment of my Monthly Reading Roundup. A few headline-grabbing studies were published during the past month, including one on Mediterranean diets and the other by the well-known pediatrician from UCSF Robert Lustig, who does a ton of research on the links between sugar and chronic disease. A few other things to note, one being the use of cold therapy and metabolism (something I'm experimenting with and I'll be writing about soon), and then a bonus video at the end.
