Science!

Apparently breast milk contains pluripotent stem cells–those are the ones that can turn into any cell in the body. That has got to be one of the most awesome discoveries of the century, and will be at the end of the century, too. As my cousin said, “That explains a lot about why breast milk seems to have such great healing properties.” Wow. Just wow.

An astronaut’s Tumblr. Seriously, the photos here. Just wow.

How zinc works on the immune system–and why less is more with it. That’s kinda cool. I need to go take some, as I’m developing a cold.

I bet there are other good Science! things I’ve got bookmarked but can’t find right now. I’ll post them later. (It suddenly occurs to me that Science! Politics! Fandom! and other things might be a nice thematic content thing to pursue. I’ll have to think about that. Though already I’m thinking, well, Science! and Climate! would be separate-yet-equal categories. Perhaps this is already too complicated… :))
