So Botox Isn’t Just Skin Deep – NYTimes.com.

I love how the writer and a doctor repurpose a couple of old cliches in this article: Botox is “medicine’s answer to duct tape” and “a molecule that keeps on giving.”

In addition to those chucklers, the article gives the interesting background of the drug. Who knew it was originally developed by an ophthalmologist who wanted to relax the muscles that caused crossed eyes? I could have benefited from that when I was younger (still could?!). Now they are saying that it could treat chronic migraines and more. Read on, friends.
