You can just buy adrenochrome, e.g. here from Sigma-Aldrich. It's somewhat expensive for a relatively simple chemical, but not as expensive as it would have to be if the only way to acquire it would be by extracting it from the blood of frightened humans. It can be synthesized by oxidizing epinephrine (also known as adrenaline), which is available pretty ...

Those Ads were popular on TV years ago. They all claim some permanent build-up of "extra poop" which only a cleanse can remove. I found a lovely 2018 quote from a skeptic medical office of McGill University from the head, a Chemistry instructor. The lead-up to it is quite funny and mentions earlier Ads. This part makes one embarrassed to have even ...

There is no genuine proof that those golden/silver crowns were not put in by dentists. It is quite common in dentistry to restore a missing or carious tooth by a gold crown or a gold restoration. Also according to the article God and the Golden Teeth: One pastor peeled back his lip to show reporters a glittering gold crown, which he claimed had miraculously ...

The only known way to produce gold (outside mining from the earth the deposits left by ancient stars) is through nuclear transmutation, or in the specific case of gold, the term "alchemy" may be used. Occurrences of "alchemy" are indeed possible via modern technology, so we can study the requirements to make gold from another material, as ...

From an article in the New York Times: Face Shields and Valved Masks Offer More Comfort but Less Protection While any face covering is better than nothing, clear plastic shields and masks with exhale valves allow large plumes of particles to escape and may also expose the wearer to more germs. Face shields and valved masks — two options many people find ...

Nate's answer is missing the fact that the fact that length of immunity to the coronaviruses is suspected to be less than for smallpox. In fact, for the "common cold" coronaviruses, it is actually known to be a lot less, approximately one year for common-cold coronaviruses vs 40 years for smallpox. The situation is more complicated for SARS and ...
