The human gut #microbiome never ceases to amaze me. Now a discovery of a bacterium that coverts Type A or B blood to type O, with big implications for blood transfusion.

Our gut #microbiome is a treasure for discovery. More coming out on this later this week that is mind-blowing.
BTW, another example of a striking finding that has not garnered coverage by any media. Surprising, in light of the public's interest in science.

India (Bhārat), aka Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya) constitutes a mosaic of paradoxes and contradictions starting with the existence of gigantic socio-economic disparities which are in sharp contrast with the spectacular technological development in most productive sectors.
Such contradictions reflect significant measurement discrepancies which, in India's case, could be on the order of hundreds of millions of people.
Furthermore, there is the problem of Islamic terrorists, who are trained abroad and find easy fuel in the contradictions within it.
Finally, there’s agriculture which, by some estimates, accounts for 90% of India’s water consumption. Farmers meet irrigation demands by indiscriminately extracting groundwater, which some say accounts for a quarter of the world’s groundwater usage.

#Cuivre épisode 2 c'est parti.
Rappel du premier épisode : threadreaderapp.com/thread/1116041… après un peu de chimie et de #reglementation on va rentrer dans le vif du sujet #toxicologie.
D’ailleurs, je m’aperçois que je suis allé un peu vite dans ma démarche.
Petit rappel sur l’évaluation des risques :
Préliminaire, différence entre dangers et risques, je la fais tout le temps celle là mais il faut bien comprendre. #danger : propriété intrinsèque d’une substance, #risque : probabilité d’être exposé à cette substance.
Donc risque = Danger x exposition.
Ceci étant dit : la démarche d’évaluation des risques :
1 – Identification des dangers (par les études, publications, etc…)
2 – Caractérisation du danger : dérivations des doses de références toxicologiques

Como hoy es el #DíaMundialDelParkinson, voy a abrir un #Neurohilo para hablaros de la segunda enfermedad neurodegenerativa más frecuente:
#Neurocosas #Parkinson #Cerebro #Neurociencia #WorldParkinsonsDay
Antes de empezar con la neurociencia vamos con un poco de historia: la enfermedad fue descubierta por el médico londinense James Parkinson, quien en 1817 publicó "Essay on the Shaking Palsy" (Ensayo sobre la parálisis agitante)…
…donde describe la mayoría de los síntomas clásicos motores presentes en la enfermedad de Parkinson.
