Bras don't Work?

A fifteen year long French study has concluded that Bras don't actually work, that is to say they don't really do anything to decrease back pain or stop women's breasts from sagging.  On the contrary they actually encourage it by causing atrophy in the muscles and ligaments that should be working to support breast tissue.   I'm not really in a position to have an opinion on this myself, but it does have a certain appeal, why would the human body need a device that nature didn't see fit to provide strapped around it to stop it from going wrong?  Is this just one more societal norm that people (in this case women) have been conditioned to accept? Who knows, maybe in the future we'll look back on women wearing bras as a strange practice akin to the corsets of the 19th century.

Student Science Experiment Finds Plants won't Grow Near Wi-Fi Router

I bought a new router a few months ago, one that I could connect to my computer by cable so I wouldn't have to have the Wi-Fi switched on all the time.  I can't say I'd looked too deeply into it, I'd just see posts on various website from time to time calling into question the safety of excessive exposure to Wi-Fi.   Better safe than sorry I thought!

The short article I'm linking to below is about a group of teenage girls from Denmark, who ran an experiment to see how well cress would grow when placed between two Wi-Fi routers. The results, as the photo above shows, give cause for concern.  The experiment has apparently caused 'a stir' in the scientific community, with a Swedish Professor looking to replicate it in more controlled conditions.  Three cheers and more to the girls for alerting us to this potential danger, given all the money that's been spent testing the safety of Wi-Fi, it'll be truly amazing if they've found something the experts haven't.

Here's and exert:

"The students placed six trays filled with Lepidium sativum, a type of garden cress into a room without radiation, and six trays of the seeds into another room next to two routers that according to the girls calculations, emitted about the same type of radiation as an ordinary cellphone.
Over the next 12 days, the girls observed, measured, weighed and photographed their results. Although by the end of the experiment the results were blatantly obvious — the cress seeds placed near the router had not grown. Many of them were completely dead. While the cress seeds planted in the other room, away from the routers, thrived."
