2) Ecuador’s dropping 22 tons of poison on the Galapagos to kill 180 million rats. Huh?

3) So much for ‘light’ beer: Booze calories nearly equal soda

4) “many electric saunas, including infrared saunas, can emit very high levels of electromagnetic fields”

5) Homes robbed of TV signal by new 4G mobile network will get up to £10,000 to be reconnected (I see other problems)
