“The fundamental construct of self and other is becoming untenable.”
James Hamblin, If Our Bodies Could Talk: A Guide to Operating and Maintaining a Human Body

“Forming an Adam’s apple requires testosterone, and that usually means functioning testicles. When we look up at a billboard in Times Square featuring a man with a large Adam’s apple, we are essentially being shown a demonstration of testicular aptitude. “Buy this product,” the ad is saying, “and you’ll have good testicles.”
James Hamblin, If Our Bodies Could Talk: A Guide to Operating and Maintaining a Human Body

“He explains that if you really wanted to kill all the bacteria on your countertop, you’d have to leave a disinfectant (like Clorox) in contact with the surface for ten minutes. The product isn’t “killing 99.9% of germs” in the way that anyone actually uses it—a quick wipe-down. This was, both in concept and in practice, misguided. And the magnitude of its effects on our lives is now starting to become clear. •”
James Hamblin, Clean: The New Science of Skin and the Beauty of Doing Less
