Happy Saturday, y'all! I didn't collect too many links this week before I left for an out-of-town wedding, but I scheduled this edition of Weekend Thoughts to automatically publish at the usual Saturday morning time. Without any further ado, let's get to thinking.

1. The New York Times brings us Simple Rules for Healthy Eating by Aaron E. Carroll. It's a good review of healthy eating practices. Not too much detail here, but who couldn't use a refresher?!

2. The Washington Post's Spencer S. Hsu reports that the FBI admits flaws in hair analysis over decades. Hsu breaks it down quite well in his lede: 

"The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000."

3. Monsanto Knew of Glyphosate/Cancer Link 35 Years Ago via Global ResearchYet another article showing that the corporation Monsanto is not the most ethical corporation around.

I hope you enjoyed this week's links and I look forward to bringing you more of the same next weekend! Until then, keep thinking wilder!
