  • And not just by finding out how it's made. Industrial chicken in the US fed a steady diet of arsenic, Tylenol, Benadryl, and caffeine. nyt]

  • Totally not so! says Big Chicken, that arsenic-laced feed was only used until last year, when the industry found out about the study in process. No comment on the meds, though. [nationalchickencouncil.org via kottke]

  • Meanwhile, a steady diet of Benadryl, Tylenol and caffeine? Am I in The Matrix after all?

  • Hey, a fingertip amputation recall that doesn't involve Maclaren! 40,000 Topeak Babyseat kid bicycle seats. [cpsc]

  • You're not taking your kid outside to play enough. [press release: seattlechildrens.org; abstract, ama-assn.org]

  • Something something something you're overparenting. [psychologytoday]

THIS JUST IN WTF UPDATE:

"[The woman arrested for texting while driving with the baby on her lap said] her excuse was that, while she was driving on the 91 Freeway near Compton, the 1-year-old started crying and in an effort to comfort the 1-year-old, she pulled the 1-year-old to the front seat," a police department rep tells CBS Los Angeles.

I have that topeak seat and would not recommend it. It is very heavy. The rack is very heavy. The suspension system is heavy an leads to a squeaky ride. The release system makes is slightly easier to remove/attach the seat than some of the competition but not appreciably so. We have two bike seats and the other cost half what this one did and it's better in every way.
