Is this true? Anyone know, or think they know?

  • Never heard that one, but I'm beginning to think those little mice they test on just get cancer from anything.

  • Vaseline is a by product of refining crude oil (dead dinosaurs). You should never use it on or in your body. Here is the link you are looking for.
