 Why is it so hard to get clean weed? (Slate)

In a small enough dose, even a toxic, illness-causing chemical like hydrogen cyanide could be completely harmless. That could well be the case with marijuana. We simply don’t know yet how much pesticide your body could be absorbing. “It’s troubling to me to think that’s it’s being produced at all, and that somebody’s inhaling hydrogen cyanide gas,” says Dave Stone, a toxicologist at Oregon State University who consulted with the Oregon Health Authority on its list of pesticides that labs should test for in cannabis.

Those silicone bracelets track which chemicals you’ve been exposed to (Popular Science)

How beer can help your weight loss (Men’s Journal)

No, drinking beer won’t help you lose weight. A pint of IPA contains only 0.0757 mg of xanthohumol, says Cristobal Miranda, a research assistant professor with Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute and lead author of the study, published in a special issue of Archives of Biochemistry and Biophysics. To derive any benefits of xanthohumol from beer, you’d have to do the impossible and guzzle 3,500 pints per day. (see also ALN)
