One more reason why we need a world government, I suppose.

Be careful what you wish for. The European one is making a pig's ear out of it at the moment!

Here's a thought: In 2002 New Scientist warned of the cat-borne brain-dwelling parasite Toxoplasma gondii, a distant relative of the malaria parasite). People carrying Toxoplasma react about 8 per cent slower than those free of it – which could be the difference between life and death for those out on the road. It was reported that “humans with a latent infection are 2.7 times more likely to be involved in a car accident”.

“It didn’t matter whether the subject was a driver or a pedestrian, having the parasite made you more of a danger to other road users,” it went on. Have you got it? Toxoplasma infection generally goes undiagnosed, so keep your eye on the road.

Women are twice as likely to go off sex in a long relationship than men.

Ok, so, firstly I'm surprised that it's not a much higher figure for women going off sex.

Secondly, how is this news?  It's just normal life isn't it?

I noticed it was a very slow news day.
