    Wednesday Trivia: Researchers 🔬

    Researchers who study aging and longevity often experiment on subjects with short life spans so they don't have to wait decades for results.

    Thus, they're partial to roundworms, which only live for two weeks or so and, weirdly, share some genetic characteristics with people.

    Weirder still: Yeast, a short-lived, single-celled fungus, has enough cellular similarities to humans that it's also used in laboratory studies on human aging.

    Who knew? Kinda makes you wonder who came up with the idea to study these in the first place.
