I'm posting this as-written - mostly. Edited for length, but I'm not the one adding the dramatic language.

A diet of corn is turning wild hamsters in northeastern France into deranged cannibals that devour their offspring, alarmed researchers have reported.

"There's clearly an imbalance," Gerard Baumgart, President of the Research Centre for Environmental Protection in Alsace, and an expert on the European hamster, told AFP on Friday. "Our hamster habitat is collapsing."

More common farther to the east, Cricetus cricetus in critically endangered in western Europe. The findings, reported last week in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B, finger industrial-scale monoculture as the culprit.

Once nourished by a variety of grains, roots and insects, the burrowing rodents live today in a semi-sterile and unbroken ocean of industrially grown maize, or corn. The monotonous diet is leaving the animals starving, scientists discovered almost by accident. The problem is a lack of vitamins. In fact, one in particular: B3, or niacin.

Sorry - you asked someone with credentials? Clearly, a shill for big pharma. ;)

Remember the Gwyneth Paltrow jade eggs in the vaginas story?

Here’s what Dr. Jen Gunter, a San Francisco-based physician with Kaiser wrote about the practice, starting with the fact that it’s not only useless but actually sexist:

My issue begins with the very start of your post on jade eggs specifically that “queens and concubines used them to stay in shape for emperors.” Nothing says female empowerment more than the only reason to do this is for your man! And then the claim that they can balance hormones is, quite simply, biologically impossible. Pelvic floor exercises can help with incontinence and even give stronger orgasms for some women, but they cannot change hormones. As for female energy? I’m a gynecologist and I don’t know what that is!? How does one test for it? Organically sourced, fair trade urine pH sticks coming soon to GOOP for $77 I presume?

It's from a pretty reputable news source... the biggest newspaper in New Zealand.

w ww.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11788607

Other websites (msn, telegraph etc) also report it, but all cite the New Zealand Herald as their source.

Take what you will from it :)

I would think New Zealand would use the British justice system, with barristers and solicitors instead of lawyers.

I'm with BLM sand calling BS on this one.
