First off, I miss the days of receiving Mr. Yuck stickers which I would subsequently affix to EVERYTHING; notebooks, the kitchen cabinets (Mom didn’t appreciate it), walls in the garage and the basement….hey! I was doing what I was told!. Anyways, an article published in PLOS today describes a circadian variation in pesticidal mortality rates due to circadian activity of enzymes. As a side note, if you ever need immediate treatment for a fertilizer overdose, come to my lab. We have the antidote; atropine.
I not only hope that the project researchers are at the next, upcoming Society of Biological Rhythms meeting, but they better have Mr. Yuck stickers to pass out.
