Welcome to STEMology – Show Notes
Season 1, Episode 33
Placebo parties, bacterial appetizers, scary smells and Biblastrophies
In today’s episode of STEMology… Sophie & dave will discuss about…
How placebo may alleviate pains, why some bacteria eat your flesh while others don’t, brain’s quick reactions to dangerous smells, and how a meteorite impact destroyed the whole city
This is clear ability of the placebos to reduce pain and other symptoms, as well as release brain chemicals, like dopamine serotonin. And so the whole idea is you take these pills, you believe that they’ll work. And then it releases some of the things that you need in order to feel like they have worked.
Vibrio vulnificus is one of the fastest killing human pathogens with a striking mortality rate of more than 50%, but not all strains of this bacteria can kill humans….. so the question becomes, why is some of these guys jerks and why are the rest of them just like real chilled out??
And the short answer is genetics
This is important and in terms of sort of just health in general, survival for people. If you smell things like rotten food that smells bad and you know, we don’t want to eat, rotten food cause it’s gonna make us sick … So it does make sense. We would react more quickly to dangerous things
Remnants of melded, plaster melt minerals, including platinum, Iridium, nickel gold, silver, zircon, chroma and quartz. But, Dave, the crazy thing is, to melt these things you need to get to temperatures like 2000 degrees Celsius, which far higher than they were able to get to in the middle bronze age.
This is a “kind of, sort of, vaguely close” copy of the words that David & Sophie speak in this episode.
