Pretest Antibiotics Printer Friendly Version
Ever had Angina or some other illness where you had to take antibiotics? Antibiotics can be a great thing, but they always overburden your entire organism, and these days it happens pretty often that they don't work because what you are trying to cure is already resistant against this particular medication. So you have to try a different brand of antibiotics, do more harm to your body etc.
I simply wonder why it's necessary to use your own body as a laboratory to test this. Should be entirely possible to put a few of those bacteria into a glass and see if they can be killed with this particular drug at all, then only take it if it works. I know this will be more expensive than eating pills at random, but maybe this could be offered at least to wealthier patients, and once it's established it can become a standard for everyone later on.
Reward: I'd rather like my antibiotics tested than being my own guinea pig.

Essence of Ashtray (to give up smoking) Printer Friendly Version
I smoked for many years not caring about my health, and I smoked I guess because I was depressed... Then I put my nose right next to my ashtray which I had kept half full in a drawer. The smell was ghastly. Before I went to bed I smelt this again, I closed the drawer and vowed I would never smoke again. I think of tobacco as a huge weed - a monster that pervades and eats flesh... when I need a fag, I draw in a quick intake of fresh air and when my hands feel lost I play with a white tube. It's worked for me! Though I confess I am still depressed...
So, someone please make Essence of Ashtray to help those giving up - in moments of weakness they can uncork this vomitable odour, a quick whiff and your desire to give up is replenished. - And someone please do a picture of this horribly ugly, man-eating monster weed.
Reward: Within one week of not smoking I could smell the improvement in my home and all my old aches and pains had gone. I felt energized.

Disinfecting diaper machine Printer Friendly Version
The diapers have durable material that can be reused after dumping the waste into the toilet and put through a machine that cleans and disinfects the material. The waste would go into a composting process similar to the envirolet or the like.
