    We know. They're dropping past your cargo shorts. Seriously, would it kill you to wear long pants?

    FDA bans antibacterial soaps
    One year from now, they all either have to be reformulated or discontinued.
    This actually makes me happy.

    Healthcare-level cleansers and Alcohol-based sanitizers are not affected.

    We actually need more bacteria and dirt in our lives. We're having issues keeping healthy because we're no longer building up tolerances to common crap.

    Didn't Chaz mention there was always at least 2lbs of bacteria on you at any given moment? I just imagine it as a bacterial shield now.

    I've always wondered if my mother's freakishly over-clean house and her obsessive cleaning tendencies are why immune system is so screwed up.

    Science has been teasing stuff like this for ages (Electric ion repair of teeth, stem cells, etc), my goal is to keep my teeth in good enough shape that I'll still have enough left to repair so I can make a full recovery.

    Interesting condition I'd never heard of: Little-known disorder looks just like dementia -- but can be reversed

    It's called Normal-pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) and is reversible in 99% of cases. Probably subject to being caught early enough.

    What they're NOT touching on in the article is how many people diagnosed with dementia and/or Alzheimer's actually have this? That's potentially terrifying.

    Not sure whether I'm happy or not that my mom shows none of the symptoms of this disease. Happy that she hasn't been living in hell for no reason, but unhappy because she's still living in hell.

    Well, I legitimately wondered when this was going to happen after hearing about the successes of the research they mention a couple years ago. I thought, "Well, someone could set themselves up as a supplier, assuming they could get enough supply and had sufficiently few qualms." And now someone has.

    This Anti-Aging Start-Up Is Charging Thousands of Dollars for Teen Blood

    Who knew this would be foreshadowed all the way back in 2000?

    At the time, I remember thinking, "Hmm, I suppose it could theoretically work, but nobody is ever going to find out because that would never make it past any ethics committee."

    Interesting article: The Myth of Drug Expiration Dates
    This isn't super-surprising to me that things are stable far longer than their "shelf life" says, but I found it interesting that the government and military already had a program to cut costs like this.
