16 people died from having botulism injected into their faces? You don't say! A U.S. consumer group has called for a strong warning to be placed on Botox after more than a dozen deaths occurred. For those unlucky few, the injected toxin spread from the face into the rest of the body and caused "muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing or aspiration pneumonia, a serious condition caused by breathing a foreign material into the lungs." Four of the deaths occurred in people under 18 — was it preventative wrinkle therapy? [Reuters]

Wait, some people are dying after injecting a toxin into their body?

Imagine that!

Next you'll be telling me I should quit smoking.
