Schumer Proposes Anti-GPS Tracking Bill

(Metro) Senator Charles Schumer of New York is proposing legislation to outlaw GPS tracking of individuals without their permission. 

Although stalking is prohibited by federal law, Schumer says it doesn't cover GPS tracking because it's a relatively new technology.

He calls it an invasion of privacy that can be misused against ex-spouses, domestic violence victims and others. 

Under the senator's proposal, some forms of GPS tracking would still be permitted, including for law enforcement investigations and parents who want to know the whereabouts of their kids.

Soda Ages DNA

(Metro) Stop drinking soda-pop if you want to keep your DNA youthful and spry. 

A new study by researchers at the University of California in San Francisco found regular soda drinkers have DNA similar to someone four-and-a-half years their elder.

The study looked at five-thousand people nationally and those who drink more than 20 ounces a day experienced accelerated aging of cells and tissues.

Diet soda drinkers fared better than those who prefer real sugar in their soft drinks.
