DT Friday Freakout

A roundup of freakout headlines and news from the worlds of science, health, and parenting, to ruin your long weekend:

  • Just because they're bite-size, kids should not eat the Tide laundry detergent nuggets. [slate]
  • Haha, it's all fun and games until some dad puts the kid in the laundromat washing machine, and it starts turning. [latimes]
  • Haha, it's all fun and games until it turns out the dad everyone's been fragging is actually the babysitter's friend, or should we say the ex-babysitter's friend. And everyone will correct their WTFDad? headlines. [youtube]
  • Five out of 5 pediatricians who work on studies funded by Miralax recommend the short-term, untested, FDA's-investigating adult laxative for their tiny patients who poo some. [nyt]
  • The tobacco industry's success in the levels of flame retardant in American infants' blood is phenomenal. And our kids going through puberty at 9yo means they'll be that much more ready to compete in the global flame retardant industry in the future. Thanks, Big Tobacco! [epic chicagotribune]
  • After 27 incidents, including a death and a "catastrophic brain injury," Tots In Mind has been driven out of business. So the CPSC has initiated a refund/credit program with the retailers who sold the company's deadly, stranguliffic crib and playard tents [below]. [cpsc]
