Firewalk record flare up
July 12, 2004 - 10:30AM
An attempt to create a world record for fire-walking in Dunedin yesterday led to
28 people being treated for burns - 11 of them at hospital.
The event raised more than $900 for an ambulance service - but the ambulance
service spent more than that treating injured fire-walkers.
Thong's flop effect
July 12, 2004 - 2:24PM
Wearing thongs can make men impotent and damage internal organs, a European
study of the popular footwear has found.
Researchers found thongs contain toxic phthalates - chemicals which can cause
men to flop in bed.
Phthalates are also suspected of acting like hormones and causing damage to the
liver and kidneys as well as reproductive organs.
The German Association for Environmental Protection also found high amounts of
lead and poisonous zinc and phosphororganic compounds in thongs they tested.
