Clean Living Makes Rats Weak

Check out this article about a study of rats that shows that clean rats have weaker immune systems than rats that live in dirty conditions. Makes you wonder if we are really better off washing our hands all the time.

Cheap Massage!

If you live in the bay area and need a massage, check out National Holistic Institute. They have a student massage clinic for just $35!

If you live elsewhere, you might beable to use Google to locate a massage student clinic in your area. Syracusans can go to Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage (Syracuse is my home town).

Turns out you are mostly bacteria

Fascinating article about the role of bacteria in the human body.

I remember reading about how the absense of certain bacteria in the body is associated with allergies. Apparently, the reactions of bacteria to the environment clue the body in that the immune system does not need to react to a substance.

I've also blogged before about how fermented foods are actually good for the health of your bacteria.
