Shave More, Live Longer?
Happy New Year! Want to have many more happy new years? Keep shaving. According to this BBC News article, men who shave every day have a lesser chance of stroke than those who shave infrequently. The research was based out of the University of Bristol with funding from the nebulous Stroke Association, and if the BBC article is any indication of the science, non-shavers have nothing to fear. Consider this gem of a paragraph:
However, even after all the factors were considered, researchers found they were had a 70% increased risk of having a stroke and a 30% increased risk of dying from any cause.
Huh? "they were had." Do they have editors in BBC-land? And who doesn't have a 30% increased risk of dying from any cause. In fact, I'd go so far as to say everyone has a 100% chance of dying from some cause. (Sorry readers. You're all going to die someday. And there's no Santa Claus either.)
Here's my second favorite line from the article:
A spokeswoman told BBC News Online that the research was interesting.
Yep. It certainly is. You know what else is interesting? Loans.
OK, so I'm not sure I really believe this one. But if you shave everyday, keep at it. And if not, click on over to the BBC News and decide for yourself if you should be.
