    Well, it’s not a vaccine. And it is a serum-based treatment, but using a complex technology that produces a better product. Serum based in that it harvests immune products (exogenous antibodies ) that are generated in response to infection. So I’m sticking with my simplification.

    The academic urban legends article was one of the funniest things I’ve ever read.

    We used to eat spinach regularly, and I think my father told me that it was somehow antagonistic to calcium. I also remember an old Popeye cartoon in which he was dreaming, and a fresh can of spinach failed to boost his strength because he was actually eating his pillow stuffing.
