News Round Up Sunday Morning Medicine By Jacqueline Antonovich • September 9, 2012 Sharing TwitterFacebook A weekly check-up of gender, medicine, and history in the news. Sex and polio in the movies. Your condoms are not made in Condom, France. Oldest message in a bottle found. Why abortion apologies hurt the pro-choice cause. Ancient Korean love letter unearthed. The dangers of deconstructing women. The really strange and sad story behind the man who wrote, “Strange Fruit.” Junk DNA theory is, well . . . junk. The contentious history of the popsicle. “Blanket hornpipe” and other sex euphemisms from the 1800s. Learning to play piano can cause sexual disorders (according to 19th-century doctors). Methadone moms caught in the middle. 9,000-year-old charms found in Israel. The intersection of history and neuroscience. Drugs and sexuality still fuel the debate behind Alice in Wonderland.
