    It's absolutely increasing.* We are just not absolutely sure why.

    We are not comparing 1700 to 2018. Infant mortality wasn't THAT different a few decades ago in developed countries that you can pass it off to kids surviving who otherwise wouldn't.


    *Note that it's SOME autoimmune diseases that have had an unexplained increase, not all. Some like RA, have been decreasing.

    Gut microbiome is undoubtedly one of the key factors. A lot of active research is going into how to optimize that (and comparing the microbiomes of people in developed vs developing countries).

    You're right SS, debunked was the wrong word to use there. I think it's fair to say that the initial fervour around the hygeine hypothesis has died down. I think the idea that this was all down to immune exposure has been discredited, and now the question is not about immune exposure per see but more about the response of the immune system to the exposure, and the factors that influence that.

    The questions are now how does good inflammation (that fights disease, kills bad tissue and promotes healing accutely) become bad inflammation (that promotes either immune tolerance or autoimmunity - two opposites, and has a chronic component as well).

    So, don’t just let them play in the dirt, let them eat a bit of it too?

    I do feel sorry for the researchers working in dark matter direct detection experiments, coming up with ever more creative and impressive ways and solutions to see absolutely ****-all. Must drive them slowly insane.

    who's going to make the violins?

    That's also my impression of most people.

    That's more high energy physics than dark matter searches tbh, the latter is lucky to ever get to the "something?" stage in the first place.

    This is the sort of stupid reporting that creates unnecessary fears amongst the public. Not saying the science is 'bad' but it is probably nuanced and should only be discussed at the higher academic level of understanding to fully verify and research.

    And yes I get the irony of posting it on a cricket forum board.....

    It's also the title that is highly misleading. From the article itself, "These eight patients all received doses of human growth hormone from the pituitary glands of numerous cadavers—a very unusual transmission route." That's slightly different than you going in to get your wart removed.

    So I know we had the Chinese get to the moon at last... still pretty impressive.


    But snow man is unbelievable amazing to me.





    Dr. Stern highlighted the precision that was required for the rendezvous with Ultima Thule.“It’s only really size of something like Washington, D.C., and it’s about as reflective as garden variety dirt,” he said. “And it’s illuminated by a sun that’s 1,900 times fainter than it is outside on a sunny day on Earth, So we’re basically chasing it down in the dark at 32,000 mph.”
    At a distance of 6 billion km away.

    Have any of our scitentists here got an answer to the old conundrum about what happens if you tie a piece of bread buttered side up to the back of a cat and drop it from hip height to the floor?
