What he's talking about is survival of the fittest, not eugenics. They're entirely different things. Like dying in some horrible government pogrom to eradicate people with extra small pinky fingers from the face of the earth vs. making out with an electrical outlet and getting electrocuted to death kinda different.
What he's doing is generating random words to avoid backing down :P.

Here's some more sarcasm for you. At least SHE had the rare ability to read and took interest. Unlike a certain poster who didn't and thinks the article is about a boy

Missing the point. No matter how many warnings a doctor can give - they don't line list every product to avoid nor could they possibly know what products to avoid. Oh I am sure they give examples- but why is it so hard to swallow that having this extra bit of info "more" public is bad? What is the HARM in having this article appear?

Because from some of the posts in this thread - people are acting as if it's a bad thing to have a reminder of what might cause a death.

And to top it off - they are mocking a 14 year old.

While there are definitely replies that go off on other tangents and/or pointlessly go too far, there's something to be said about this being some sort of a "discovery" that needs to be presented in front of thousands of doctors. It's a sad sad state of the health care system that we have if doctors don't already know this, and that people actually see this as a discovery of some sort if the information about this has been available for a long time. Call it a reminder, a PSA, whatever, but it's not really a discovery.
