Seminal signaling....proteins in semen acting as master regulators in gene expression. Ohhhh man.

Yes, there is a lot people don't know. These things are alive. Think about this, compared to the cosmos that we have barely observed, we are just cells compared to that...lol and many assume they think compared to that and are individual beings and this is only the surface scratched, on a grain of sand on some beach on this grain of sand (earth) on the beach of lake in the galaxy and that is slightly bigger than a grain of sand on a beach in the vast, vast
Vast cosmic womb, and then after these things, we might become an infant.

When combined, these two drugs have a synergistic effect that could save many lives. #breastcancer #ovariancancer 
Two cheap generic drugs could cut breast cancer deaths in postmenopausal women with early stages of the disease. Researchers suggest that two classes of drugs – bisphosphonates and aromatase inhibitors (AIs) – could be used together to complement one another, increasing the benefits and reducing some of the side effects.
