When I was growing up, we only needed warnings not to stick anything smaller than your elbow into your ear.

The FDA recently issued a warning about the risks associated with lighting a candle on fire and then sticking it in your ear.  Wow.  Dr. Roazen does a nice job of detailing why ear candling is just about as effective as picking your nose for the treatment of flatus and other disorders.  I'm not sure which is more about the future of the United States, that it is necessary to advise its citizens about the dangers of ear candling or this.

The lesson is clear:  the only thing you should regularly put in your ears is Doctors Talk.
