- Some scientists poured plaster into an anthill. Take a look at the first picture on this page for the results. Pretty cool.
- Nutrasweet won’t give you brain cancer, after all. Or, at least, it won’t until the next survey comes out.
- And cell phones didn’t kill the honeybees.
- Update: OK, so I completely misread the aspartame story. It does claim to prove the cancer link. But here’s the response to the study from the FDA disputing it. Furthermore, the FDA asked for complete details on the study, but the Italian agency that did the original study hasn’t forked them over. So much for the scientific process including the ability to replicate studies. Yet the FDA has already identified shortcomings in the survey, even based on the incomplete data. So drink up!
