DT Friday Freakout: Boing Boing Edition

It's the weekend! Which will now be ruined by freaking out over these news stories from the worlds of parenting, health, science, and whatever:

  • Fetal cells basically stay floating in the mother's bloodstream forever. It's called microchimerism. [boingboing, which, hmm, last fall, no summer, no, spring, started a hippie video clip roundup called, somewhat retroactively, the Friday Freakout? OK.]

  • Three rhesus monkey chimeras were created with the genetic material of six embryos. [sciencenews.org]

  • They mentioned chimeras the other night on CSI, or NCIS, or whatever. Chimera, chimera, chimera.

  • Art education improves brain function. If blogreading improved memory, maybe they wouldn't have had to repost this story from last year, hmm? [scienceblogs]

  • Yoga can totally screw you up. [nytimes]

  • Meconium reveals the amount of fetal alcohol exposure in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. It also shows that nearly 30% of moms in Rome drank alcohol during pregnancy. [eurekalert]

  • Bad mothering of toddlers causes teen obesity. []

  • Denmark has the best work-life balance in the world. The US is #23, which is surprisingly high to me. [oecd via href="http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2012/01/the-23-best-countries-for-work-life-balance-we-are-number-23/250830/">the atlantic, thanks dadwagon]
