So if ants ever start gathering around me, I'll know I have diabetes. Very useful information here!

In 1889, two scientists called Mering and Minkowski of France removed teh pancreas of a dog. The dogs became fatigued. Ants started gathering around the dogs. What had caused the ants to gather? The scientists analyzed the urine of the sick dogs and found that it contained glucose, a sugar, while the urine of the healthy dogs did not. The ants were attracted to sugar.


Read again and, then tell me.. will ants gather around you for same purpose :?: ..... :shock: .......lol......... :lol: :lol:

Has anyone ever crawled into an ant hill by acciedent? I have...and I was climbing a bluff. I had nowhere wlse to go cause it was so high up and dangerous to jump down or do anything unless climb up. I got into an ant hill and with me having Insectaphobia, I was freaking out!! I had no other choice but to just let them crawl on me, cause I couldn't run or make any quick movements. Well, I finally got to the top and brushed them off of me!!

I know, I am an adventurous person.

To put it simply, glucose is a simple sugar.

Check this out for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glucose
