Microbial Growth Elimination Scenario in Agriculture

Microbial Growth Elimination Scenario in Agriculture

A scenario where the complete elimination of microbial growth needs to be monitored is in Agriculture, more precisely meat production.

The use of antibiotics has been used recently in the mass production of fowl, pork, and beef. The elimination of microbes with antimicrobials has impacted different ecosystems such as the creation of new resistant pathogens and the destruction of microbiota.

Why Yersinia pestis Fascinates Me

Why Yersinia pestis Fascinates Me

Medival History

Most records intrigue the fascination of the Yersinia pestis with the poor public health standards. Modern historians suggest that the public health in the medieval ages held public health efforts for waste control, sanitation, and medicine such as herbal remedies that worked. All this was not know then once previously imagined.

Finding all possible structures of a given formula (stable edition)

Finding all possible structures of a given formula (stable edition)

I kinda learned this from hard experiences… I think for this class (bio organic chemistry) we do not worry about double bonds since these molecules are unstable. The most important part of finding the possible structures given one formula is to focus on the functional group of interest and work around that in a step by step approach. I decided to show all the carbon atoms to make this much easier but with practice you won’t need to. I do draw small dashes to remind me of the hydrogens i’ve counted.

DMT Analogs in Chemistry

DMT Analogs in Chemistry

For discussion, I choose the “spiritual molecule” DMT (N, N-Dimethyltryptamine). In the Amazon, tribes create a brew called the ayahuasca known “hundreds of years old,” while more recently a man found the correlations of animals agitating toads to form secretions, but not killing them and was the first man to have smoked the secretion and first man to have “licked the toad.”

Dangers of Sodium Benzoate

Dangers of Sodium Benzoate
  • The video above shows the affects of a patient exposed to benzene and thus why the FDA began regulations on benzene…

After doing research, I learned that benzoic acid was commonly used in the 1980’s as sodium benzoate in food preservatives, medical uses such as antiseptics and mediation preparation and of course tobacco to name a few.
