I don’t know anywhere near as much as I want to know! I’m always learning :D
I studied Biology and Dairy Science in school.
For some interesting History of Medicine stuff, the National Library of Medicine has a good site - check out their collections and education resources for some really quick and fun lessons.
If watching things is your bag, “Blood and Guts: A History of Surgery" is one of my favorite BBC documentary series.
My favorite authors that you guys might love:
Everything by Mary Roach, especially Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
Also everything Carl Zimmer, especially Parasite Rex
I’ve liked everything I’ve read by Richard Preston, too, especially The Hot Zone. Haven’t read every single one of his books, though.
Amy Stewart has the best bugs, plants, drinks…and illustrator. Wicked Plants is great.
Other good books:
Madame Curie: A Biography (by Eve Curie)
A Little Book of Sloth (…stay shushed)
For fiction, Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore (especially Fluke and Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove), Terry Pratchett, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Marion Zimmer Bradley are my favorites.
