As Sisqo once sang, let me see that thong! Thong, thong, thong, thong, thong. Well, easy there. Not only is that a bad song, the item may be bad for you.

Sometimes they're too tight, sometimes they rub the wrong way and sometimes they just don't feel all that clean. Experts suggest that they are not.

Thongs aren't necessarily bad, says Jill M. Rabin, Professor or Clinical Obstetrics & Gynecology and Women's Health at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

"If somebody's healthy, there aren't really any dangers," she says, however, "The issue is if you have a predisposition to getting infections, either urinary or vaginal."

In that case, "it may be harder to get rid of it if you're wearing a thong."

What are the features of thongs that put you at risk for health issues?

We all know Oreos are addictive, but a new study suggests that the cookies are as addicting as actual drugs ... at least in the way the brain responds to them.

The “pleasure center” of the brain, the nucleus accumbens, apparently gets just as activated in response to Oreos as it does to cocaine and morphine.

That could certainly have some pretty major public health implications if Oreos were as damaging to one's system as the aforementioned narcotics.

They're not, of course, and the study was only done in rats. However, the Connecticut College authors say it’s likely relevant to humans as well.

It could explain, they say why people have such a hard time resisting eating an entire sleeve of the cookies after they've set out just to eat one.

Girls star and creator Lena Dunham wants Instagram to "get down with the nipple." In other words, quit censoring/blocking breastfeeding photos.

Breastfeeding Instagram

She kept friend and new mom Sarah Sophie Flicker's breast covered up with a tasteful daisy to abide by Instagram's no nudity rules, but not by choice.

Dunham made it clear that she didn't like having to do it.

"My @sarahsophief feeding the brand new Dusty. I made the flower crown and she added the flower censor. Wish she didn't have to cuz the nipple is dope," she wrote.

"Instagram, get down with the nipple."

An Illinois dad who discovered something repulsive - a Facebook spam page exploiting his sick daughter for Likes - responded in amazing fashion.

Sean Murphy took to the page, which is described as a "social content farm," and managed to raise money for the hospital that saved her life.

A picture he posted online that shows his little girl, Serafina, recovering from heart surgery, was used to bolster the advertising revenue of a page called Starteens.

Pretty awful. But the University of Illinois law student simply went on the page and asked readers to donate money to the hospital instead of "Liking" anything.

As a result, he raised thousands of dollars for the medical facility.

An indigenous woman gave birth on a Mexican hospital lawn earlier this month after being denied help inside the clinic in a story making global headlines.

Her newborn still bound by the umbilical cord and lying on the ground, the shocking image has horrified millions because of where and how it took place.

The woman had been refused help inside the medical clinic right before this occurred, which struck a nerve in a country where inequity is still pervasive.

The mother, Irma Lopez, 29, said she was turned away by a nurse who said that she was only eight months pregnant and "still not ready" to deliver.

The nurse told her to go outside and walk, and said a doctor could check her in the morning, Lopez said. But an hour and a half later, her water broke.

Lopez gave birth to a son while grabbing the wall of a house next to the clinic.

Even with a Joliet, Ill., drug treatment physician, publicly stating that he's seen as many as four users of Krokodil, the DEA is not sounding the alarm.

The drug, which is made by cooking codeine with various chemicals, such as lighter fluid, gasoline and industrial cleaners, was first reported in 2011.

It's been on the radar, with Krokodil reports in the U.S. making news lately.

Still, federal officials say they are skeptical that the nightmare drug, a cheap heroin knockoff, that originated in Russia has reached American soil.

“We, the DEA, are not seeing cases of it,” agency spokeswoman Dawn Dearden told Fox News Thursday. “Nothing’s been turned into any of our labs."

"As far as the DEA is concerned, we have not seen any cases.”

An appellate court is expected to give an attorney for an Ohio children's hospital custody of a 10-year-old Amish girl so she can resume chemotherapy.

This comes after her parents chose to stop the treatments.

Doctors at the Akron Children's Hospital believe Sarah Hershberger has an 85 percent chance of survival if she receives chemotherapy for leukemia.

Without it, they believe she will die within a year.

An appeals court overturned a judge's earlier decision that said preventing parents from making medical decisions for their daughter takes away their rights.

The court ruled that the hospital's attorney, a registered nurse, should be granted limited guardianship and the power to make medical decisions for the girl.

Pat Robertson has already come out against gays, saying some spread AIDS on purpose.

He's also taken wives to ask, blaming them for their cheating husbands.

And now the 83-year old televangelist has issued a warning to anyone cooking up an Atkins or Paleo recipe: you are totally dissing God!

In yet another impossible-to-believe segment on The 700 Club this week, Robertson told the story of some dude named Jimmy Moore who lost 180 pounds by cutting out carbs.

And what's the matter with such a healthy move?
