A sick and twisted Consumer Math teacher in Upstate, New York decided to have his students put Nabisco's claims that Double Stuf Oreos contain twice as much filling to the test!

The results were devastating!

After crunching some numbers (and probably a few cookies), the group of Debbie Downers high schoolers found out that

Dogs are preschuzz….just like your human babes, but furrier!

So you want to make sure they are safely secured to their seats when you need to go on a drive, right?

Enter the newly formed Center of Dog Safety!

Using a test dog dummy (no live dogs participated) that weighed 55lbs (the average U.S. dog size), the Center tested four constraints that are deemed acceptable for child safety in a simulated 30 mph crash.

Boo! More Olympic Athletes Caught Doping!

Filed under: DrugsOlympics

COME. ON.

If you're going to be an Olympic athlete, how about you put in the hard work and become one — don't freakin' dope and take the easy route.

You're gonna get caught.

Two more athletes have withdrawn over anti-doping tests, including a Greek high jumper, and a Hungarian discus thrower.

The Greek world indoor high jump champion Dimitrios Chondrokoukis tested positive for a banned substance, and the 33-year-old Hungarian discus thrower Zoltan Kovago refused to even take a test.

How lame.

At least now they've made room for proper competitors!

Scientists Find Skin Cancer Drug That Reverses Alzheimer's In Mice

Filed under: FitnessHealthMental HealthScience!

Yay for science!

Researchers found that a skin cancer treatment cured Alzheimer's disease in mice VERY quickly!

In a study by Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, researchers gave mega doses of bexarotene to Alzheimer's stricken mice. Within 72 hours, the mice's memory improved and half of the amyloid plaque was gone.

The scientists are quick to point that it is mice, not humans, they're dealing with.

But there is good news; since bexarotene is already FDA approved, the next phase can happen sooner than if it was a new drug.

The next phase includes testing on healthy and cancer stricken patients.

Let's hope the success continues!

Having high cholesterol doesn't just affect adults

The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute has announced new guidelines that recommend children get screened for high cholesterol before they reach puberty, regardless of family history.

The current guidelines recommend screening for kids with a family history or with those who have diabetes, high blood pressure, or are obese. But looks like a change is on the horizon to help children avoid heart disease later in life.

A key change in the new rules will
