The New Scientist reports that researchers have used viruses to deliver IGF1 to muscles, causing rapid growth.
The idea is to create treatments for things like muscular dystrophy, but of course we all know it'll be used as a performance-enhancer by cheating athletes and thus banned before any actual patients get treated. It's a really cool application, and I hope it goes somewhere useful.

Speaking of too many hormones.....women at the most fertile part of their menstrual cycles rate other women more harshly than do women at less fertile stages.

How bout some fun debate about the sociobiology of this finding, please?
