Small wrinkle in that plan

In Febuary of this year the popular FDA approved anti-wrinkle drug Botox and a leading competitor were linked to dangerous botulism symptoms in some users.

Some of the cases were so bad that a few children, given the drugs for muscle spasms, simply died.

Now, a new study, published April 2 in the Journal of Neuroscience, raises the serious concern that the popular anti-wrinkle treatment Botox may travel from its injection site into the brain.

This should not be a big problem.

Anyone stupid enough to inject botulinum toxin into their face simply to fill a wrinkle or two, most likely lacked a brain to begin with.

I couldn't agree more...and while we're at it, lets add stomach stapling (for reasons other than urgent medical concern) to the list, because anyone that thinks it's a good idea to make your stomach the size of walnut in order to lose wait needs to instead pursue a cure for their broken brain.

On the other hand, thanks to her plastic surgery, Courtney Love does look super hot on the beach these days.
