Ep 16 Part A: Deeper into the RNA Quagmire

Click to Play

I simply had to go to the source of information about RNA drops curing autism and boy, oh boy.  A feller could have an entire blogging career taking these sales pamphlets / presentations / mockery of science apart, piece by piece.

btw, I guess last week's injesting/ingesting/in-jesting fun was either too low-brow or too brief. Come on and give me some affirmation love. Maybe more voice-over video fun is the ticket, but it'll have to wait until this RNA drop series is done.

running time = 7m 11sec or so.

Why the blazes would you ever want to put a mole of nucleotides or oligonucleotides into your mouth? Very simple: because you've been told it'll cure autism, that's why. It'll also cure heavy wallet syndrome, and who really wants a big old lump in your back pocket making the derrier look all lopsided and such? Just a quick look at pH and RNase-induced transesterification. Remember, you have a filthy mouth, whether you swear like Cartman or not.

For the RNAphiles, I'm not even getting into depurination or anything. Just the basics.

Just some fun with an old JB vid. Had to get this out of my system before I get into some papers and RNA quackery debunking mode.
