    If you shave, wax, or use a depilatory you might be guilty of wiping out a species.

    “Pubic grooming has led to a severe depletion of crab louse populations,” said Ian F. Burgess, a medical entomologist with Insect Research & Development Ltd. in Cambridge, England. “Add to that other aspects of body hair depilation, and you can see an environmental disaster in the making for this species.”

    She and colleagues are analyzing patient records to see if it’s lowered rates of pubic lice further, and will present their latest findings at a medical meeting in May, she said.
    “We put the flag out, so to speak, if we see a case of pubic lice nowadays,” Wilson said in an e-mailed response to questions. “The ‘habitat destruction’ of the pubic lice is increasing and they are becoming an endangered species.”

    What kind of laws must the EPA pass to protect this endangered species?

    So endangered species protection is really about which ones we like vs. not destroying "ecosystems".

    They will though. The foundation is already being laid by studies saying that removing body hair is dangerous. One woman actually DIED! And if one dies, all are in danger. It's the liberal way of equality.

    The farmers in California would have rather farmed than keep a fish happy too. It didn't do them any good.
