Unfortunate Allergy

Some women, aproximately 12%, are allergic to their partner's semen. Even worse, some men are allergic to their own semen. The allergy causes some nasty reactions in both cases unfortunately.


France has enacted a law limiting excessively thin models from working until their BMI reaches a minimum level set forth in the law. Fines and even jail time can be leveled against fashion houses and modeling agents trying to use models that are thinner than the law allows. Its about time we quit letting vanity destroy our little girls.

Put Men in Girdles

Dr. Peter Steincrohn's 1969 book (available used on Amazon) promised to reveal how one could be "lazy, healthy, & fit." For years before he published the book, Steincrohn had also been writing newspaper columns in which he promoted his formula for health. The secret was girdles.

He felt that all men over 40, in particular, should be wearing girdles just like their wives (this was the 1960s), because he believed that girdles promoted good circulation and thus meant the heart didn't have to work as hard pumping blood. Wearing a girdle, he promised, would "add years to a man's life."

If this ad were selling bottled elk urine, I'd buy the stuff. Luckily, the product actually sounded beneficial.

Its Good For You

Hydrogen sulfide, the stuff that puts the smell in farts, is actually good for you. So claims a study by the University of Exeter. So the next time your spouse or significant other subjects you to a 'dutch oven' just know its because they love you!

Drinkable Suntan Lotion

New from Osmosis Skincare. A suntan lotion that you don't need to rub all over your skin. You just drink it. The Bristol Post explains:
Osmosis Skincare have created Harmonised H2O UV Protection, which claims to stop harmful rays with liquid molecules that vibrate on the skin. Dr Ben Johnson is the founder of US company, Osmosis Skincare. He explains that "The liquid molecules vibrate on the skin, cancelling approximately 97% of the UVA and UVB rays before they hit the skin."
The drinkable solution is supposedly the equivalent of factor 30 SPF sun screen.

Not only drinkable, but holistic! That certainly sounds credible.

Imagine it, a widely used and comfortable replacement for the colonoscopy. Well, soon it could be a reality. The PillCam is just that, a pill that holds a camera at each end. There was a first generation with one camera, the new one is second gen. The tech is affordable enough that the pill need not be retrieved after it is passed, there's some good news huh? It is FDA approved and in trials currently.
