I studied biology with such disinterest in school that the scores hardly speak of what i learnt. Same with chemistry. But then both the subjects are fascinating to say the least. Much more than mathematics i guess. My liking for maths always made me dislike most other subjects, throughout my student life. But when i read this, i want to go back to school and learn things better, Be amazed with the subject as a 15 year old.
I never knew of the private banking of stem cells. When my brother was telling me about it, i had that wow expression on my face all the while and longer. If i ever have a baby, the cord blood is definitely going to get stored in a private bank as well as a public bank. It is so cool!
PS: As an aside, i still like maths the best, and somebody reaffirms it too.
