DT Friday Freakout

So hear are some headlines and such pulled from the media and designed to freak you out all week, compiled into one list, so you can freakout and ruin just your weekend:


  • JennyMcCarthyBodyCount.com keeps a running tally of all the preventable childhood diseases and related fatalities in the US since 2007, when Jenny McCarthy began telling parents not to vaccinate their kids. [jennymccarthybodycount.com via kottke.org]

  • Big High Fructose Corn Syrup's petition to the FDA to change the name of high fructose corn syrup to "corn sugar" was thoroughly rejected. Because it is a syrup, not a sugar. And because corn sugar is dextrose, a completely separate thing. [fda.gov]

  • Ladies, your kids' unhealthy eating habits are basically caused by your unhealthy eating habits n front of them. Also, your low income. [sciencedaily]

  • Ladies, your kids' eventual obesity is basically caused by your C-section. [sciencedaily]

  • Ladies, your kids' eventual teen asthma is basically caused by your smoking while pregnant. [sciencedaily]

  • Ladies, your kids' eventual schizophrenia is basically caused by your gluten issues. [sciencedaily]

  • Kids are getting phthalates from PVC floors, which, I guess I don't know what floors are PVC? Since the top 10 Google results for PVC flooring are all about this study, I'm guessing no one knows when their flooring is PVC. [sciencedaily]
