	It's your responsibility to avoid the teratogens when you're
pregnant, just like it's your look-out to eat right and not smoke.
	About the grad student though...in my lab, anyone who confused
a food microwave with a work microwave...well, we wouldn't hit 'em or
anything, but they'd never hear the end of it. It's illegal too. Didn't
you chew her out?
