I wish more people knew the story behind these cells and the woman they came from. Such an impact on modern science.

Guys, read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. It’s reallllllllly good.

Agreed. I know for a fact we used these cells in school, and I just want to ask every one of my fellow students if they know the story behind them. Because I bet they don’t, and it’s a shame.

Ingredients of life

Illustrations of Chemical compounds by Rex

An ultra-cool set of posters! Dopamine is the one I am most familiar with and it’s a very interesting chemical not only because it causes our emotional responses, but because it controls the ‘reward system’ of our brain which in turn motivates us to repeat actions that we enjoy (even if they are not good for our overall health, as is the case with chemical addiction).

But rather than dwelling too much on the more serious effects of these chemical responses, focus more on the greatness of the posters!

I have a lot of these that I still need to get rid of! If you’d like one of these (obviously awesome) “human” bracelets, send me $5 and it’s all yours!
If you don’t have online banking or a credit card, you can always send it to my P.O. Box and I’ll send you one. =)

I really shouldn’t, but, gah, want.
