  9. Male Chest Hair and Scrub Tops
    Chest hair is no more "nasty" than head or arm hair or any other hair. Who decided that it is? Where did this all come from anyhow? They're MEN, not women. And they shouldn't have to cover up any...

  11. Should the H1N1 Vaccine be mandatory for Healthcare Professionals?

  13. Should the H1N1 Vaccine be mandatory for Healthcare Professionals?
    But I don't blindly trust the pharmaceutical companies nor their regulating agencies--they've had to recall too many medications they said were "safe"; usually after a lot of people died. There are...

  17. Clogs while nursing
    Still, there's more risk in sticking yourself somewhere else--hands, fingers, etc. and they don't make you wear leather gloves. I think it has more to do with tradition and appearance rather than...
