Medical Headlines of the day

First they came for the Spinich...then they came for the Carrot Juice.

See, mom, I TOLD you Twinkies were better than healthy foods for kids. When things are full of chemicals and preservatives, even Germs don't want to live there.

Luckily, NGO's stepped into the gap, which only shows that oil money won't improve the lot of common people when the government is corrupt.

Finally, the scientist behind the TV show BONES
