The Loon Morning Show Rundown: Are You Smarter Than a 1st Grader? [AUDIO]
As heard on the January 12th show:
1. Woman Drinks Vanilla Extract and Gets a DUI
One woman almost lost her cookies over something you usually put in your cookies - vanilla extract. Seems like an expensive way to catch a buzz, but Carolyn Kesel downed two bottles of the stuff and ended up blowing a .26 after being pulled over in a Walmart parking lot for driving erratically.
2. Study Says Circumcision Leads to ADHD?
A study of 340,000 boys in Denmark found that circumcision raised the overall chances of an autism spectrum disorder. The investigation was prompted by recent animal findings linking a single painful injury to lifelong deficits in stress response. The study goes on to discuss how painful experiences in babies have been shown to have long-term effects on pain perception. People are on the fence regarding these findings.
