Hello all! Welcome back to my blog!
Here is a short piece about the invaluableness of animals in medical research. Sometimes, public may find it hard to understand that animal use is very much needed in research involving translational medicine (like cancer or drug development) and cannot be entirely eliminated. In addition to carefully thought ethics and proper care for the animals, there cannot be enough ways to honour their contribution to science and medicine.
Popular science books.
Intriguing, beyond inspirational, and embody realism from which one can learn the origin many things present today.
They don't just tell imaginary stories like fictitious books do, neither do they explain facts like in academic treatise or report findings or explain data like in a science journal. Popular science books carry all of those elements, and present them as a prose, in an entertaining way and possibly understood by everyone, including people from non-science field and kids! Because of this broad target audience, popular science book can be written by anyone (even non-science fellows) who has the urge to tell a story about science, inspired by science, and is dedicated to write only the facts-checked and scientists approved science!
