Toenail clippings could allow scientists to predict the risk of lung cancer many years before it develops, research has shown.

Measuring nicotine levels in clippings found men with the highest readings were more than three times more likely to get cancer than those with the lowest....Because toenails grow so slowly at 1cm a year they provide vital information on long-term exposure to cigarette smoke

The findings, by experts at the University of San Diego in California, could pave the way for doctors to screen for lung tumours....Toenails not only identify which smokers are most at risk but also which non-smokers, says the study in the American Journal of Epidemiology.....This means it provides clues to the damaging effects of passive smoking.

If Athena ever sees what Nightie is doing to her bird's reputation, I expect to see a serious case of godly vengeance.

I like to stun them and then put them into a lantern. They wake up, go into the light and then barbecue themselves. A little tabasco sauce and you have a meal that cooks itself, entertains and is both tasty and nutritious. :D
