We’ve used them so much that bacteria have become immune to our antibiotics because, like all life on earth, they adapt to their environment. In 2013 alone, two million Americans were infected with anti... »

This Is Not Your Dad’s Talk About Condoms

This Is Not Your Dad’s Talk About Condoms

Do condoms work? Yes, they do. Most emphatically: they do. They work better at preventing STIs (sexually transmitted diseases) than as a contraceptive but, when used properly, they work almost 98% of the time to prevent pregnancy.

In recent months, however, I’ve switched from having minimal breakfast to just coffee. I have to say it’s helped me los... »
