Now Nietzsche!

So Scientific American didn’t mention Nietzsche in their parallel universes article, but they did in this piece entitled “Nietzsche’s Toxicology.” But as much as I love Nietzsche, that is not why I bring this up — the article is about hormesis, the phenomenon of toxins having beneficial effects in small doses.

Dante Arciero wrote about this very subject in the December issue of The Torch. At the time a few people expressed skepticism, but it’s good vindication when a left-leaning magazine like SciAm prints an article on hormetic effects (even noting their implications for environmental laws).

Now if only they’d print a study proving the superiority of sugar cane Dr Pepper over the normal variety…
