Friday Weird Science: Pubic Hair goes Public

Email   PrintPrint

Sci is at Neurotic Physiology today, looking at a recent survey. Surveys can provide us with powerful information on diet, poisonings, exercise habits. Hospital surveys can give us ideas of epidemiology, rates of cancer, rates of heart attacks. And they can tell us a little about people’s pubic hair.

What, you think people don’t LOOK at that? Well they do when you end up in the ER with a wax burn from your Brazilian. Head over and check it out. Photos are safe for work.
