One of my favorite health reports this week, reminding me why the USA is still the land of innovation and a place for entrepreneurs, ideas and diversity. This is greatly missed by me in France.

The 13-year-old CEO who invented a cure for hiccups
Mallory Kievman is CEO and founder of a company that might just cure one of the world’s oldest and most annoying maladies, the hiccups. The 13-year-old is preparing to launch her product, the Hiccupop, a hiccup-stopping lollipop of her own invention. 
After testing about 100 folk remedies, Kievman picked three of her favorites — sugar, apple cider vinegar, and lollipops — and combined them. I’m still “tweaking the taste,” she tells The New York Times, but the combination of ingredients “triggers a set of nerves in your throat and mouth that are responsible for the hiccup reflex arc… It basically over-stimulates those nerves and cancels out the message to hiccup.”
She has a patent pending, financial backers, and a team of business consultants (in training). Here’s her story
