STORY BEHIND THE STORY
If you want a good laugh, click on my latest video story on CNBC about the bee population disaster. Yes, laugh at disaster! Why? Because I’m wearing a ridiculous bee suit. You can take the girl out of the tiny local news market, but you can’t take the tiny local news market out of the girl. Best part, I’m covered head to toe like I’m about to land on Mars, and I do a live interview with the actual beekeeper, Red Bennett. I say to him off camera, “You are gonna put on a bee suit like me, right?” “Why would I do that?” Eureka! I said, “Actually, don’t! It’ll be better this way.” So I interviewed him looking like I’d just walked out of an Intel “clean room,” while he’s in the midst of all these bees just in his shirtsleeves and khakis. Made me look like an even bigger dork. And when you’re going for the dork look, bigger is better.

It seems to me that they produce a product, illegal in some areas, that masks the fact that the user has consumed banned substances. Especially useful for job applicants, truck drivers, or anyone on probation....I wear size L, in T-shirts.... Am I clear?? Frank, Wisconsin
Jane - Clearly, B-CLEAR is a product targeted for expectant mothers. Prior to implantation, an embryo can be tested for the tendency to develop hepatitis. During pregnancy, the fetus can be tested for hepatitis. Always good to know, or is this a solution ... without a problem? Fight On! William
