It's a salad dressing AND a cancer screen!

Okay, this is too cool:

"A simple vinegar test slashed cervical cancer death rates by one-third in a remarkable study of 150,000 women"

You will never guess where - so I'll tell you: "in the slums of India."

In the West, "[p]ap smears and tests for HPV" have saved countless lives, but these are apparently too expensive for poorer nations. Enter vinegar which, when swabbed on the cervix, changes abnormal cells' color, indicating potentially life-threatening cancer.

According the the study, it's "cut the cervical cancer death rate by 31 percent."

Beat that, Honey Mustard!
