If only we all looked this adorable in the process.

wound-healing is the coolest

I’m not posting a picture, because when an MD/PhD says “Ew” when she sees your wound, you know it’s kind of gross-looking.

But the cool-factor of seeing new skin appear in mere hours over the bloody painful mess that is your knee (almost) totally makes it okay that you were a klutzy idiot and turned your knee into a bloody painful mess in the middle of what should have been an idyllic run.

Also, because there’s some nasty bug going around campus right now

In case you like troubling news delivered with a side of cute pictures.

Why yes, I love troubling news delivered with a side of cute pictures.

In retrospect, even though I didn’t particularly love physics or end up as an engineer, I really appreciate my physics teacher encouraging me to pursue it.

Whoops, a week and a half late. In case you needed a refresher on that kale debate.

The Medical Mythbusters have been popular, so I’m keeping those up. 
Will resume journal clubs semi-sporadically as experiments and health allow. I’ve been sick on and off for the past couple of weeks.

How Much Exercise is Too Much? Ask Your Immune System.

paleorecipecookbook:

Getting an adequate amount of exercise is one of the best things you can do for your body. That much we know for sure. Exercise builds muscle; it increases insulin sensitivity; it improves balance and coordination…the benefits are almost endless. And since only so few Americans ever get any…

My inner scientist wishes there were citations and not affiliated with the paleo craze, but I think this is an important read regardless.  Our society encourages extremes, and I’ve always happily subscribed to that mode of living.

I’ve definitely been known to say, “It’s not a good workout unless I feel like I’m dying.”  And rationally, I know it’s not even healthy at that point, but I have a tendency to overdo everything until my frail body craps out for weeks or months at a time.  

So…moderation, guys.  It’s a good thing, even if it seems kind of boring.

Massively delayed posting.  (As I hypocritically slather hand sanitizer over my skin)
