Eye disease! Springtime anorexia! Food pathogens! Coca-Cola chemicals! Chinese smoking! Tall blood clots! Botox lawsuits! Teen drinking! And legal stem cell research, yeah! It's your Friday Health Watch, where we watch your health—while smoking!
- A $50 eye disease treatment has proven to be just as effective as a $2,000 treatment for the same disease. Do you have eye disease? No? Well, forget it then.
- Anorexia has been linked to being born during the spring. The baby comes out of the womb and immediately in swimsuit time, what do you expect? You people disgust me.
- Which food pathogens are the most costly to society? God, I mean it's like saying "Which kid do you like the least?" You like all of them the least. Let's not get into a whole ranking thing.
- Coca-Cola cans: what sort of deadly chemicals do they contain? Well... nothing you should be worried about. Mmm, Coca-Cola.
- China has the most smokers in the world. Starting May 1, they're outlawing smoking in bars and restaurants and buses. But not workplaces. "No more smoking on the bus! What the fuck! Eh well, I'll be at work soon."—CHINESE THOUGHTS.
- Tall and obese men are at higher risk for blood clots. Turns out their blood is made of barbecue sauce.
- A 67 year-old guy struck the $212 million Botox lottery! By getting permanent brain damage, from Botox (which he was getting for an actual medical reason, not even for vanity). Some people will do anything for money.
- "You're Not Doing Your Teen Any Favors by Letting Them Drink." Well, unless you're buying.
- A U.S. appeals court has overturned a ban on government funding of stem cell research. Go to hell, psychos.
