Of Mice, Men, and International Travel

Today they announced that “Jet-lagged mice die younger” on the heels of the study that obese mice that drink red wine live longer. Let’s put this animal research to good use.

For the sake of all mice traveling on business, I suggest they go first class to have access to plenty of red wine, so they pass out and are not subjected to “confusing schedules of light and darkness, simulating rotating shifts or international travel.”

I might follow that same advice as well.
