The human brain is incredible. It’s capable of both engineering a life saving mRNA vaccine and deciding that anti-parasitic cattle paste is a better option. Just unbelievable range.

BREAKING: The FDA Grants Full Approval to Pfizer-BioNTech Covid Vaccine The decision will set off a cascade of vaccine requirements by hospitals, colleges, corporations, & some state and local governments. washingtonpost.com/health/2021/08…
The idea that these vaccines came out of nowhere is a failure of science communication with tragic results. They're the result of DECADES of basic research in MULTIPLE fields building on the BREADTH and DEPTH of human knowledge. That’s how science works. And it's awe inspiring.

Do you know people who had asymptomatic or mild cases of COVID-19, don’t exactly have long haul symptoms but just have not felt “right” for months? brain fog, confusion, memory issues? I am afraid it is more frequent a “thing” than we want to believe. nationalgeographic.com/science/articl…
