Welcome to our fifth distilled of the best articles posted within the STEMsocial community last week. This week, our delayed edition is back... too much physics on @lemouth's shoulders. Many of the advertised posts can however still be voted on, so please don't hesitate to read them (and comment them), if not already done.
Before moving on with the two best posts that have been selected from all the posts found by our curators last week, here are the most supported ones:
|@gentleshaid||How do you prepare your herbal extracts?|
|@scienceblocks||How bats carry viruses without getting sick|
Our top choices
@scienceblocks is back with his journal club series, the topic of the day concerning the famous coronavirus. The virus seems to come from bats, and it is known that bats carry many viruses without falling sick (in contrast with other species). This fact is analysed in this post where the author compares the response of bats and human cells to various viruses. Hopefully, this will give us some handles to follow...
Humans are social creatures, and this is what made them survive so far. This is the starting point of an interesting post written by @menoski in which he discusses how socialising is connected with a good mental health from a psychological standpoint. It could actually act somehow like a vaccine, can help against dementia and many other good things.
