You Choose! Winning & Losing Stories

-Oral Sex & Cancer
According to new research out of the University of California, the human papilloma virus or HPV may now be overtaking tobacco as the leading cause of oral cancers in America in people under the age of 50.  Every year 37,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer.  The researchers are trying to get a crucial message out to teens:  oral sex carriers as many of the same risks as vaginal sex.  Via CNN

-Toddler Tantrums
According to a new report by the University of Pennsylvania, the part of the brain that regulates emotion and controls social behavior is underdeveloped at that age.  But there's a trade off.  That underdeveloped part of the brain actually makes it easier for kids to master a new language.  They also say that the best way to handle a tantrum is to stay calm and ignore the bad behavior.  Via CNN

-Royal Hunger Strike
A Mexican woman says she's been on a hunger strike for at least 8 days to demand an invitation to the royal wedding of Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton.  The woman has set up a tent outside the British Embassy in Mexico City.     She says she intends to continue the strike as long as necessary.  So far roughly 1,900 names are on the coveted guest list.  Via CNN
