"I may come to regret the title of this post given the #chemophobia and fear surrounding #fluoride and water fluoridation, but recent research suggests that fluoride may help prevent #bacteria from causing #cavities by creating a non-stick surface on teeth."

#FOP is a rare, genetic condition that turns a person's muscles, tendons and ligaments into bone. Unfortunately, it can be misdiagnosed as cancer and lead to amputations.

A story about getting screwed by your own hard work and sweat...literally. 

Also contains the best sentence I read today, "My great-uncle quickly decided to grow some of his own."

Story
Introduction

I am a Ph.D. researcher in the Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology & Biochemistry at Brown University. My research interest is in understanding how cells communicate via molecular languages, known as signal transduction pathways. Not surprisingly, I am also interested in how the scientific community communicates with the general public. A well-informed public will be essential in shaping the policies that affect science education and research in our country. 

I blog at PLOS Blogs and Amasian Science
