Friday’s Fuss

Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

Peanut butter is being recalled [7], women are more germy [8] than men, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief, because Donald Trump’s comb-over [9] may soon become a thing of the past. Or maybe not.

Peanut butter isn’t the ideal food anyway (it’s fine in sauces and on fresh fruit, but a PB&J sandwich is no healthier than a donut). Girls still smell better. As far as Donald is concerned, we think his hair would make a great nest.

Here’s the breaking clickativity:

1) Restless Legs Are Not News

Restless legs have a cure: movement. Restless leg syndrome is a modern phenomenon borne of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. It is NOT a disease needing a cure. The cure is to move around once in a while.

Here’s an incredible expose [10] on how pharmaceutical companies literally create diseases so you’ll take their drugs – and how the media are complicit in spinning the lies.

2) Expect Plenty of Bad Leno Jokes Tonight

So Kentucky and West Virginia [11] are overweight, heart-disease-ridden states. Before you gloat (or feel bad if you hail from these states), keep in mind that all 50 of our states are a giant collective embarrassment.

We are the fattest, sickest, soonest-dying, most diseased industrialized nation. Pretty pathetic, considering we’re leaders in medical research, have no shortage of nutritious food, and are the richest nation…on earth. But the media are covering this non-news like white on rice. Basically, we’re preschoolers comparing the size of our crayon boxes while everybody else has moved on to markers.

This is the kind of irritating health news we have to draw attention to, simply because it’s so stupid. It’s a good example of how the media alternately scares the living daylights out of people and reports frivolous non-news as “news”. Will anyone care about this in two weeks (or two days)? Will anything be done? Where are the investigative pieces and exposes that actually produce some change?

3) Bees Dying

This [12] makes us very sad. And it could actually be a huge problem for crop production this year.
