That doesn't make sense does it.

Fetal haemoglobin has a higher affinity for oxygen and can therefore carry oxygen more efficiently

I don't know why people come up with these theories. stop wasting your time and learn something which is fact and makes sense.

Unfortuantely this is the reality with a lot of conditions. Doctors really don't understand it and its so difficult to treat. I've had to put up with a similar situation with my eczema for the past 5 years. There is no cure, just treatments which mostly fail and doctors just dont have a clue. It see...

From experience i don't think its anything to worry about. I had something similar recently. It got quite bad and blistered after about 2 hours of football and running but after that its all healed up nicely. So I'd keep an eye on it. You can buy lots of stuff for feet but i dont know understand mo...

I would love to know these as well. But i have a feeling that it may be very difficult to measure and therefore no one has bothered. For this type of data you usually have to go to papers from 70s,80s or early 90s. Which often means going to the library to photocopy some old journal. If i get time i...

Rats, mice, whatever. Small furry creatures. Don't you live in Romania? A long way from rat infested NY.
Most cities have lots of rats and mice. But i bet NY has a lot :o

Whats killdeer? Some type of deer or is it coots kill deer. I can't see how a small black duck could kill a deer. You just have to write all the plants and small creatures at the bottom and humans (i can only see ducks and shellfish as things we eat off that list) and birds of prey at the top, then ...

I think its just trees in general. Although they may be at a protest at a specific forest which contains a rare type of tree which they want to save, but generally they love all trees:D Its like the Save the Animals protests. Against using animal testing in labs. They are against all testing on ani...

No they mean Dapi. Stains the nucleus blue. I don't know whether you can remove it. I don't think so.
Have you done the experiment yet? did it work?

You mean why don't they contain a racemic mixture (mixture of L and D isomers). 1) Although no one knows the exist answer it appears that L - amino acids are slightly more stable. Also amino acids from the solar system, metorites etc, are all L amino acids so maybe thats why all amino acids on earth...

I don't think it has, yet. But its the next big step for many scientists after the human genome project:

But all the news on this is from 2002 e.g.:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/2499119.stm
So I don't know how much progress they have made. Apart from the technical difficulties there are some ethical issues here as well.
