Here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:

Mechanism that repairs brain after stroke discovered
Scientists discover a "good" fat that fights diabetes
Decreased ability to identify odors can predict death

(I loved that they included a reference to Weird Al's "Grapefruit Diet" in the article)
Hunger Games: How the brain "browns" fat to aid weight loss

(since it's always good to learn more about heroes)

That's it for now. Have a great weekend, and see you on Monday!
