Hibernating Squirrels Provide
Clues For Stroke, Parkinson’s
A compound that enables squirrels to hibernate may one day help minimize brain damage that results from stroke, according to a researcher at the Medical College of Georgia and Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Augusta. It only seems fair since squirrels cause so many people to have strokes in the first place!
Other related squirrel studies involve experiments that could someday help suppress human appetites, or even save lives on the battlefield.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if squirrels helped man suppress his appetite.
