Researcher Suggests Human Body Can Produce Its Own Aspirin

UK researcher Gwendolyn Baxter and his colleagues could prove in the blood of testpersons a low concentration of salicylic acid - the active compound of aspirin when digested - though these persons did not take in aspirin previously.

The concentration in the blood of vegetarian testpersons was almost as high as in persons who took an aspirin pill before. As further investigations revealed, salicylic acid was not solely taken in by diet, it was produced by the body itself.

The research team states: "It is, we suspect, increasingly likely that SA is a biopharmaceutical with a central, broadly defensive role in animals as well as plants". Salicylic acid is maybe the first of a new group of bioregulators.

If I could only have my body produce large amounts of seratonin and dopamine!

Sitting to close to the PC or having a laptop depletes said asprin.

Thus is a cosmic wash. But McNabb wasn't sure about this.

    • To me this off-season it makes the most since to keep CAP or Foz if it comes down to those two. CAP may be average, but that's as a 1st and 2nd down back which CMC, & Whit are not at this point from a full time perspective.  CAP is the best option to maintain a physical runner in the event (likely-hood) Stewart has to miss a couple games as he tends to each season.  I think it's common sense at this point. If we look at Stewart for what he is ''right now'' aside from pass protection there is not '' a lot'' that really separates him from CAP in my opinion, a few years ago it was a bigger gap, but at this point in Stewart's career he's becoming just a power runner, CAP is the closest we have to that. 
    • Dummy, come on man.    Rivera and DG tanked that game for a high pick. You guys know nothing about running a team.    The question now is, do we as huddles think you're a decent poster anymore. Answer is "no".
