    [–] Better Vaccines for Older People are a Poor Alternative to Better Immune Systems for Older People Pricefield- 0 points ago in longevity

    LOL I did my PhD in a longevity lab. Any changes that people take within the next year will have zero (ZERO) effect in seniors' response to COVID-19.
    They may have slight improvements in certain metrics, but overall, their health and related disorders will not change.

    It would be negligible because of the immediacy of the pandemic. Like realistically, you expect anything anyone does with their health in the next year to have an immediate impact on how the virus will act in your body? Likely, this thing will play out in a year or two or three, which doesn't give much time to significantly change the immune systems of our 70-year-olds. I think vaccination is a much better strategy in this case.

    This should come with the caveat that this has nothing to do with COVID-19. Helping older people get better immune systems will likely have little effect on fighting this virus, particularly in the short term.

    Underrated post.

    [–] As labs are slowly looking to open up, what are you / your institution / your lab doing to enable research again while mitigating COVID risk? (e.g., staggered schedules) Pricefield- 16 points ago in LabManagement

    You should wear it all the time, as it might help reduce the droplets you spread around the lab. Everyone should be wearing masks as much as possible, unless you're going for a walk and particles don't have a chance to drop onto anything but the road.

    EDIT: Even then, if you're going for a walk, wear a mask!

    [–] Sometimes it feels like you've been there forever... (except not anymore, cause almost everyone is at home) Pricefield- 3 points ago in LabManagement

    I think it's more how you feel in the moment (especially for busy labs) versus how it feels looking back in time. It also doesn't necessarily apply to just research labs, it was meant for everyone, med labs included.

    [–] If you ever need access to journals Pricefield- 0 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    Why would someone give a fuck about anyone giving a fuck about reddit trophies? (I give as much of a fuck about reddit trophies as I do about the video games I play fyi, which isn't much of a fuck, but it's really none of your fucking business, is it?)

    If I knew getting reddit trophies was as easy as posting www.sci-hub.tw to r/Damnthatsinteresting, I would have done this years ago.

    Funny enough, I'm not even close to a photographer. I'm a science writer!
