Obesity: The old equation of "calories in, calories out" may be too simplistic, given new "obesogenics" research on environmental pollutants and food additives that play a role in weight loss, Kristin Wartman reports for the Atlantic.

Health Reform: Supporters of health reform have to get their good news where they can find it: a new Associated Press poll finds that fewer Americans think their health care "will be worse" under the new national health reform law than in previous polls, Sarah Kliff reports for the Washington Post.

Place and Health: A new study of health in rural central Calif. finds that life expectancy varies widely by zip code – by as much as 21 years, Bernice Yeung reports for California Watch.
