Hey folks! Welcome to the start of our weekly What We’re Reading series, a place for you to keep up with what our WellWire team is reading about on blogs and news sites across the Internet.

Halloween is less than a month away. Does your child seem to become a little monster during this time of candy overload? Well, researchers have found a possible explanation for this: when sugar is consumed more frequently during childhood it is associated with higher violent crime rates in adulthood. Curb the sugar, curb the tiny criminal.

Hold the Canola please! This article on canola has concretely confirmed for me the ill-effects of this genetically modified oil marketed as “heart-healthy.” Switch your oil away from this inflammation causing GMO monster.

Pregnancy Exercise is a well done and informative 3 part series. It answers many of the questions mothers-to-be often have about safety and the correct way to exercise during each trimester.

There is a new anonymous posting project called Letters to My Body. This site posts the inner most thoughts, positive and negative, people my have about their bodies. There is comfort and relief in being able to share these deep-seeded and often emotionally charged beliefs of how we are constructed in flesh and blood.

The organization Food and Water Watch is having a party, and you’re invited! Its called OktoberFish! They’re have a Frugal Fish cooking contest, yummy weekly recipes from Chef Rocky Barnette, and an updated sustainable fish consumer’s guide.

What about you, read anything good lately?
