Noted. In that spirit, I ran across a blog post from Derek Lowe about medicine that was really interesting. There might - just might - be a trigger link between an infection and the onset of Type 2 diabetes; a genetic predisposition to Type 2, kicked into gear as the result of a totally random viral infection. Wow. (Actual paper; original news article)
On a different note, for any chemistry fans out there, this is the blog series that got me reading Derek's stuff in the first place.
Science. It Works.
