I like Well, the weekly two-page spread in the New York Times, but I think it is misnamed.

Well runs in the Tuesday Science Times section, and it’s also an NYT blog. In today’s Well, I learned that failure to get enough sleep may shorten my life; that most people in public toilets don’t wash their hands properly; that frequent high doses of some common meds can increase cardiovascular risk; that hearing loss is linked to general poor health in older adults; that children with food allergies are often bullied by their peers; and that aggression between siblings can cause deep psychological wounds. The “Really?” column checked into the claim that biofeedback devices can lower blood pressure, and found that they probably don’t.
