“Handlebar Level Can Affect Sexual Health of Female Cyclists”

Article that appeared in news today about a study of the relationship between handlebar height and pressure in the genital area which can cause loss of sensitivity.

The gist of the article – handlebars lower than seat can cause problems.  Raise handlebars (or I guess lower seat) so that handlebars are higher than seat, thus taking excess pressure off genital region.

Laser Treatment of Vitreous Eye Floaters

Today I was researching laser treatment of vitreous eye floaters and came across this mind-blowing video of a live procedure being done by one of the only very few physicians in the US who perform it:

To anyone who has never had a floater, it might be difficult to imagine how amazing this procedure seems.  Floaters look like this junk that floats around inside your eye.  They often look like a sort of diffuse clod of blurry hair which can sometimes be quite annoying.  I’ve had mine since I was around 10 and experienced a traumatic injury to my left eye which, luckily, didn’t leave me permanently blind (although I was legally blind in the eye for a while after it bled internally).
