Parents: Please vaccinate your children.
Stop listening to Jenny McCarthy. Vaccinations don’t cause autism. You’re being silly. You’re the child heath equivalent of a climate change denier. Four people screaming their opposition against 400 others does not make the issue 50/50.
Don’t end up like these parents from New Zealand.

Cracking your knuckles won’t cause arthritis.
Donald Unger cracked the knuckles on his left hand for sixty years, but only the left hand, to compare it with the state of his right hand which went un-cracked. The result? Nothing. No arthritis. He won the Ig Nobel Prize for Medicine in 2009 for his research. Basically, your mom is a liar.
The “cracking” sound you hear is just your joints “popping” pockets of nitrogen.

Today in gay sex: AIDS Pill.
Technically, no tests have been done on homosexuals per se, but the results for hetero-folks seem pretty promising.
ATLANTA (AP) — Two new studies found that daily pills prevented infection with the AIDS virus in heterosexual men and women in Africa, bringing new hope for someday offering a medical shield against HIV infection.

10 Medical Myths That Won’t Go Away
- Vaccines can cause the flu: Nope. Flu vaccines are made with dead flu viruses and you can’t resurrect the dead.
- Supplements always make you healthier: Not necessarily. An overabundance of some vitamin supplements have been linked to cancer. Eating healthier is a better alternative.
- Cold weather makes you sick: You might have some cold-like symptoms (either real or imagined) from being out in chilly temperatures, but viruses make you sick, not weather.
- We only use 10% of our brains: A brains scan of anyone on the planet debunks this myth.
- Sugar turns kids into little monsters: Studies don’t show any increased activity in kids who’ve had a lot of sugar, only the parents’ perception because we’ve been fed this myth forever.
- You need to stay awake if you’ve had a concussion: Not necessary at all. Mild concussions aren’t life threatening.
- Chewing gum stays in your stomach for 7 years: It’s true we can’t digest it, but we can’t digest a lot of things we eat (like fiber) and your body just moves it along.
- Reading in the dark or sitting too close to the TV ruins your eyesight: Your eyes may hurt from working hard, but there’s no lasting effect.
- You should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day: The recommendation is actually 8 glasses (or 2.5 liters) of fluid, whether from food or drink, per day.
- You should wait an hour after eating before swimming: You’re just as likely to get a cramp with an empty stomach as with a full one.

New development in GaySex.
So let’s talk about this new AIDS gel for your bootyhole.
Awhile back researchers came out with a gel shown to project the vag against HIV, which is kind of Important in places like SubSaharan Africa where I guess condoms are the devil and AIDS just gets tossed around all over the place. Now, for the first time, that gel has shown that same effectiveness regarding anal tissue. The catch is…you’ll probably get cramps and diarrhea.
So once they fix that little drawback and add the secret ingredient to Gun Oil, Astroglide, Boy Butter, WET, and whatever other lubricants the homos are into these days, it’ll be like the 70s all over again! Gonorrhea and chlamydia for all!
