Back to it 

Well, I'm back from vacation, and there's lots to catch up on. I don't have the brainpower to think about this stuff today, but here's a quicky-linky for memory's sake.

Radiation-killed bacteria may be more effective as vaccines than heat or chemically killed ones. Such vaccines could have many advantages, such as reduced need for refrigeration.

A common ingredient in air fresheners and cleansers may damage your lungs. So cleanliness is next to godliness, presuming that you are closer to god when dead.

Researchers have found a pheromone receptor gene, analogous to the one in mice, in humans. This suggests that we may use them as well.

HIV seems to be 'hiding out' in the gut, avoiding drug treatments to attack it. This virus is fucking amazingly clever.

SSRI antidepressant Celexa seems to be helpful in treating irritable bowel syndrome. Cool.

Fatties are fucking up their own radiology results: more and more patients are too fat to have X-rays read reliably.

12-step programs probably not more effective than other quitting methods, but letting kids have more playtime is effective at making them healthier.
