In the spirit of the season, the Women's Bioethics Blog team has some recommendations to bring some bioethics cheer to your Holiday Gift-Giving:
1.) A Copy of The Omnivore's Dilemma, for anyone who has given any thought to the phrase 'you are what you eat'.
2.) A DVD of Michael Moore's Sicko, for whatever ails you.
3.) Energy-saving light bulbs (How many bioethicists does it take to screw in light bulb?)
4.) Donate to Heifer International (seriously)
5.) Spray-on condoms (not-so-seriously-gag gift)
6.) Biotech blooms - in vitro orchids -a sort of whimsically sweet gift for anyone interested in gardening/plants, or just novel things.
7.) A Grow-Your-Own-Skin Kit (just what I always wanted!)
8.) Med school in a box [game]
9.) Your very own pocket-sized version of the AMA Principles of Medical Ethics.
10.) anything from the Bodyworlds store! The book, however, is always a hit, and you couldn't pry mine out of my cold, dead hands. ;-)
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all of our readers!
