Reading to Simon Hunsinger
Last week’s paper edition of The Economist contained three bio-related articles that you might enjoy. The first is a painless discussion of how simple prokaryote cells (e.g., bacteria) may have evolved into the more complex eukaryotic cells that make up us and nearly everything else. The second asks you to review your heartfelt but perhaps unreasoning distrust of GMO foods, and the third answers that age-old human question: “Which is more complicated the brain or the testicle?” You may have to “join” the Economist to see these articles but don’t despair – it is easy, and free.
