It never ceases to amaze me that anyone actually pays any mind to Freud's theories anymore. But they seem to do so. And so, we have new research that seems to disprove yet another of his theories, this one of homosexuality. He said gays/lesbians were "immature" and couldn't have adult relationships. And aside from this being obvious crap, someone has shown it to be false. It may or may not be a particularly robust study, but I guess every little bit helps.
AHRQ has recommended that physicians prescribe fluoride pills to kids to prevent cavities. Might work, but we really overmedicate kids so much, it can't possibly be good.
