Where did my testicles go? Thank Cloned Food!

It has been rumored that eating cloned meat, particularly beef can shrink the size of a males testes.  Doctors in Singapore have reported that if there is high doses of hormones used to facilitate the cloning process those same hormones could play havok with a males reproductive system.  One of the side-effects could be extenstive testicle shrinkage.

As seen last year in an interesting report on testicle shrinkage in polar bears as a result of polution we can expect to see similar problems if cloned foods are pumped with antibiotics and hormones.  I for one and not too eager to munch on any of this cloned food, are you?

The scientists found the higher the level of organohalogens in polar bear, the smaller testicle and baculum size and weight likely were. Ovary size and weight decreased as organohalogen levels rose as well.

Tattoo or Gun-Fight?

Getting a tattoo turned into a very, very painful experience, but usually it’s just the needle you have to worry about. Two men trying to trace a loaded .357-caliber Magnum as a pattern for a tattoo accidentally shot themselves.  Robert Glasser and Joey Acosta, both 22, were treated at a hospital in El Paso, Texas, after the shooting Thursday evening in nearby Chaparral. Authorities said Glasser was struck in the hand when the gun accidentally went off, and Acosta was hit in the left arm. Their injuries were not life-threatening, authorities said.  But sometimes the embarassment feels like it can kill you.
