Tall people are smarter than short people, according to an analysis of two studies.
Scientists are trying to stop fetal sharks from eating each other in the womb.
Pro soccer players are freezing their babies' stem cells to cure their own injuries.
Australia's most populous state plans to restrict cosmetic surgery on teens.
The FDA approved Plan B for sale to adults over the counter.
The fetal shark story is good material for comedians.
