Someone at io9 must be listening…

As mentioned in Episode 74 I mentioned that one of the sites I frequent for potential show topics and my own amusement is i09. I encourage listeners to scope it out as long as they still come back here for their science podcasting fix. My reason for mentioning this at all is that recently I mentioned that scientists rarely experiment on themselves and that animal testing is a necessary fact of life for certain types of biologist. Well the good folks at io9 have compiled top 10 lists related to each subject. Enjoy perusing them as I did then go leave us an iTunes review or something else productive.

    They should have included Barry Marshall and Robin Warren in their Top 10 list. They won the Nobel Prize in 2005 for discovering a bacterial cause for stomach ulcers. Marshall infected himself with the suspected bacteria to prove that ulcers could be treated with antibiotics.
