carbon dioxyde shorten our lifespan?
Not entirely far-fetched. A remarkable
study published in PLoS Biology shows that
the destruction of a carbon dioxyde
receptor in Drosophila flies shortens
their lifespan considerably. A link
between longevity and the nervous system
of animals has been firmly established for
some time, raising questions about the
role of gazeous compounds in triggering
responses for survival. Yet another effect
of carbon dioxyde, far from greenhouse
effects, but that may have had an
important role in the past on the way the
Earth has been populated by plants and
