Call it romance porn—Rachel McAdams of “The Notebook” and Channing Tatum of “Dear John” are starring together in the movie “The Vow.” It doesn’t open until next February, but the first trailer came out today. The movie is about a totally in-love couple who are in a car accident when a truck smacks into them while they’re smooching. Rachel loses her memory, but Channing vows to stay with her and make her fall in love with him all over again. Strife ensues. And possibly a happy ending? But may I make a little observation here? This movie sounds an awful lot like a sad version of that Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler flick “50 First Dates.” I happened to watch it last weekend—in it, Drew has a short-term memory retention problem after being in a car accident — thus Adam must make her fall in love with him every day. I’ll take the comedy version of this concept any day. Keep reading »

It’s a freaky enough thought that cellphone radiation could cause cancer—something we’ve been hearing whispers about for years. Just this week, the World Health Organization declared they are looking into it as a genuine possiblity. But there’s some evidence emerging that cellphone radiation could also cause infertility in men. An article over at The Daily Beast surveys the data—mainly, three studies that found higher levels of damaged sperm in rats who were exposed to the radiation. But the piece also cites another study conducted from 1993 to 2007 that looked at the records of men at Austrian fertility clinics and whether or not the guys used cellphones. Of the cellphone users, 68 percent had damaged sperm while only 58 percent of non-users did—a significant difference. The recommendation for guys at the moment? Keep cellphones out of their pockets.
Of course, it doesn’t look like any research has been dedicated to whether cellphones effect female fertility. So I guess we have that fun to look forward to? Also, do not even think of using this information as a birth control method. [And, gentleman, this is also not an excuse to wear your cellphone in a hip holster. -- Editor] [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »
