I am, by training, a biologist, Allison.

The Crocodile didn't speak, but he looked damned natty in his beret as he devoured my kayak.

I know there has been a ton of write ups on zinc and its effect on the cold virus. To summarize, it can shorten the lifespan of the cold by a couple of days, affects the symptoms, and can help prevent recurrence. All I know is my son does his best to pass along his colds to me and they don't take, or if they do, it lasts about 5 days and it's gone. What I do get ain't much, just some sniffles; not much congestion, coughing, sneezing and all that crap.

I loves me some ZMA.

Steve - To me you all are studs, and therefore you would be a "stud biologist" not a "geek biologist" like me.

Thanks for the reply Ron - I need all the help with colds I can get.

Sincerely,
The Snotty Nosed Geek Biologist

I am the biologist who's never worked in the biology field.

I knew I should have gone for my PhD in either Ethnobotany or Microbiology, which were my two areas of strong interest. I was seriously gung ho for both at one point.

Instead I wound up in Latex and Plastics, following the path of least resistance to a decent paying job in the lean times after I graduated.

As a consolation prize, I saw a position for Field Biologist for the Michigan DNR, now DEQ, starting out at $17-19K yearly, and topping out around $35K.

Steve, you probably made a wise choice $$ wise. Biology + government work do not add up to big bucks. But Latex and Plastics! I'm allergic to latex... getting itchy at the thought of being "in" it! Pass the Benadryl please....

From a purely Freudian point of view, I find it interesting to hear talk of all the giant snake dreams...

I tired ZMA last night and as with every other supplement I've ever tried...nothing. In fact I probably woke up more times during the night than usual. I saw in the poliquen article that he says your HCL levels need to be up...do you guys recommend I start taking some of that or some other digestive aid?
Thanks, Josh

HCL seems to help some people, but you might start with digestive enzymes and probiotics if you don't already take them.
