Research of the Week

Kids whose parents sucked their pacifiers to clean them ended up with fewer allergies [7], lower rates of eczema and asthma, and lower levels of a blood marker that indicates the presence of allergies. I figure the squeamish among us can still give the same benefits by sucking it after it’s been cleaned by hand.

Up to 40% of all chronic back pain may be caused by a bacterial infection [8] – and could be cured by antibiotics.

Interesting Blog Posts

An Amsterdam woman has pledged to document her attempt to live like a cavewoman for 100 days (except for the blogging, photos, and videos, of course). Here are her rules [10]. They’re pretty strict.

Comment of the Week

“In chickens, L-proline induced amnesia, while D-proline did not.”

I’d like to know just how you can tell whether an animal as stupid as a chicken has amnesia.

– Ha! Fair question [21].
