    The gynecology decision was reversed by the same board about a week ago, John.

    It wasn’t the OB/GYNs examining men for HPV that worried the board. Rather, it was their doctors performing cosmetic procedures.

    Still, it’s seems a little odd in a world of equality for a medical society to argue its members must discriminate against one sex in order to remain in good standing.

    Goldmine in the human gut!

    Yeah not eating at all is unhealthy and cheap. Not getting minimum amounts of amino acids and vitamins is cheap. But eating less meat, more whole grains, carrots,cabbage, green, watermellons and citrus is not more expensive than eating hot bogs, hamburgers and “junk food”.
