I used to work as a scientist at an American university. Most things you see here will not be science related, as I am very much a fangirl at heart. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Don't ever be afraid of sending an ask or two. I'd love to chat sometime!

Thank you! I’ve gotten so many nice messages and well wishes from people. It really does mean a lot that someone took the time to write a message to me. Thank you for that :3

For those of you asking, this is part of a science paper ,and it’s actually just a poor attempt at joking.

In Science Vol 322, there was a story aboutAjit Varki’s who prefermed self experimentation by drinking an extract from pig spit.

Pig and other red meat contain a sugar called Neu5Gc. After a few days, his cells had actually taken it up and incorporated it on their surfaces. In other words,something foreign had become a part of him, no different than his own molecules.

Turns out, that this sugar that was now on the cells’ surfaces actually made them more susceptible to diseases, including E.Coli and it’s toxin SubAB.

So consider the delicious irony. E. coli produces the SubAB toxin contaminates red meat and milk products. Humans who ingest these foods (red meats) incorporate Neu5Gc into their cells, making them hypersusceptible to SubAB—and much more likely to become seriously ill from the toxin


how many times do doctors need to confirm that lack of sleep is physically and emotionally harming high school students because of how early they have to be up before someone will give enough of a shit about these kids’ health to actually change something
