  1. These articles are to complex for me to understand, could you plz explain a bit on a more basic level how one can have higher resting metabolic rate than someone else that have the same mass, etc. How does one inherit metabolic rate? What common genes are involved that affect this?
  2. Hi, I know that some people have higher metabolic rate than others aside from exercising and diet. Genes play an important role and I would like to know what genes and how those genes affect the metabolic rate. I haven't find so much when I searched for it.
  3. Hi, In the winter the air is dryer so there is less water in the air. I wonder how water can keep the skin on hands from getting dry and crack.
  4. Hi, I know that it is dangerous to inhale mercury, but I wonder why? What happens on atomic level when the mercury vapor gets in the different organs?
  5. Hi, There is a growing phase of hair that is geneticly decided, however you can do things to make this phase last longer. It may be 7 years for one individual for example. In dreadlocks the hair that fall off (also an phase) will get stuck in the dreads and accumulate. Dreadlocks also grows lenght slower since the hair doesn't grow straight. Let's say your hairs growing phase last 7 years and you have saved for 4 years, then you want to get dreads. Will the dreads not be so long then?, because the dreads will first shrink and then after about 1 year start to grow for 2 years, or will the dreads get really long, like to the butt (or will it continue grow forever?), because the hair that falls off will accumulate in the dreads?
  6. Hi, I see a film series on Netflix called "Better Call Saul". There is a guy called Chuck (Charles). He is allergic to electricity so he can sense if there is electricity. His brother had a guy put a fully charged battery from his phone inside Chuck's pocket without him noticing it and he didn't sense the electricity. Therefore his brother though he was mentally ill. I wonder, is there a current if the battery is not in use? Should he even have sensed it or is his brother mistaken?
  7. Hi, I wonder why you are more prone to get sick (get colds) when you are cold. How does the immune system get weaker?
  8. Hi, I know that the vitamin biotin (B7) improves hair growth. What I wonder is why is this? One website states the following: ""The biotin you consume in foods helps your body to turn the food you eat (protein, carbohydrates, and fat) into energy.". How does it make the hair grow faster then?
  9. Hi, I have a Garmin Instinct watch. When I press one of the buttons I come to a place where I can choose to set alarm, timer, stop watch etc. It will remember what I did last and show that when I get to the that place again. For example, if I use the alarm, the alarm will be displayed first. How does the watch save this even when it's turned off? It can't stay in RAM if the watch is turned off right?
  10. But it can only grow in length for about 7 years?
  11. Hi, I've read that the grow phase of hair (anagen phase) can last about 7 years and that the hair grows about 0.5 inches per month (depending on each person). World record is about 6.3 meters. How did he get so long hair then?
  12. Yeah that's what I mean. Thx for the link, I will check it.
  13. Hi, When people lick their lips they get dry lips. Dogs lick their lips very often so why don't they get dry lips?
