The Incredibly Expanding Snake Heart

Read Article Here

I found this article about the snake's heart and its possible connection to a treatment for human heart disease.  The fatty acids in snake blood are the key to this connection and are what molecular biologists and other scientists are studying right now.  It is known that bigger, stronger hearts can improve the blood flow of people with cardiac disease.  Though there is much more work to do, this study could potentially be extremely useful in the future.
