DT Friday Freakout: Diet Coke Edition

I don't know about you, but for me, this week's roundup of headlines from the worlds of science, health, and parenting is a Super Double Big Gulp of freakout. I'd drown my freakout in Diet Coke, but, well:

  • Diet sodas cause heart attacks. [livescience]

  • Spoonfeeding your kid causes obesity. [npr.org]

  • America's plague of half-day kindergarten will hasten Idiocracy. [childrensdefense.org via thrive by five/workingdad]

  • Officially, it IS babysitting when dad takes care of the kid. [census.gov (pdf) via nyt, thnx dt senior sitter jjdaddy-o]

  • 31,000 Bumbleride strollers have been recalled for cracking front wheels. [cpsc]

  • Get your jimmy hats, because there were like a million birth control pills recalled last week for having the packs out of sequence. Akrimax? Lo/Ovral-28? Not our department, but just ask her to check. Otherwise, welcome to the blog for new dads. [fda.gov]

  • "Charlie Bit My Finger" is on the front page of the NYTimes right now, which, after 417 million YouTube views, is entirely beside any point. [nyt]

  • "Their dentist recently revealed that an acquaintance had named his son Charlie, as an homage."
