News For Nerds: Sitting Can Cause Cancer?

by Dom posted Jun 20 2014 6:21AM

These days it seems that everything causes cancer. Well, now you can add SITTING to the list. Yep, if you're at a job where you sit all day, you've just increased your risk of colon cancer. And it doesn't even matter if you ran to work; the long periods of being on your butt are dangerous. I've got details.

With everyone catching World Cup fever - okay, maybe not everyone, and maybe not exactly a fever - I've got good news for short people. While you may be at a disadvantage in other sports, it seems that shorter folks excel on the soccer field. Details are in the link at the bottom of the page.

Plus, deep beneath the Earth's crust there's water . . . and I mean a LOT of water. More than all of the oceans combined, actually. I also have a story about the greatest thing to ever come out of a bachelor party, and a video on why garlic gives you nasty breath.

If you'd like to trip down this digital pathway you'll find this week's News For Nerds. Science is cool!
