Pink October '09 (#2)

Stats suggest that about 1 in 8 American women will get breast cancer in their lifetimes. Media hype suggests that about 8 in 8 American women will get H1N1 influenza this winter. You can protect yourself against both diseases at the same time with this pink face mask.

(Medical supply company Crosstex is donating 5% of the proceeds from pink face masks to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center for breast and reproductive cancer research. That's only something like one half of a cent per mask to split between research for boobs, uteri and ovaries, so good thing we have the flu scare to push up the sales of face masks.)
