Romance killer

Wonder if saying 'Do you want some immunity' would be a good pickup line!!! :P

Kissing was developed to spread germs

I find this kinda reporting / science quite lame. It could be true that kissing could pass on immunity as the news article claims, but concluding that this is the sole purpose of it and hence kissing was developed for this purpose is quite lame!


PS: Thx to Steve for passing on this info through google reader!

You can follow it up with "you'll get the best protection if we continue for 6 months" :)

Somehow, there is a paucity of careful causal thinking in science reporting , even common sense causality. This one is better (worser)!
