My Stackexchange Website Proposals

I proposed a new stackexchange site, pharmacy stackexchange please help me in gathering support for it becoming beta ($\beta$)! It will be for pharmacists, doctors and medical researchers.

About Me

I am a Ubuntu and Android user. I like learning about drugs (here's a blog I made on general medical stuff [Disclaimer: NOT FOR PERSONAL MEDICAL ADVICE])

Feel free to contact me through email and facebook so long as you keep a clean and civil tongue from what I can tell (including statuses) and do not offend me or my friends.

Best Office Suite for Ubuntu is a blog I made on the best Office Suite for Ubuntu. The comparison is based on reviews in the software centre, sourceforge.net and CNET with negatives and positives pointed out based on the reviews in the software centre.

comment Why can't sodium butyrate be delivered orally in humans and other mammals?
@shigeta Na, I doubt it seeing how corticosteroids tend to taste terrible (which thing I know from personal experience as an asthmatic) and yet we have methods of getting around this problem such as putting them into capsules or telling the patients to just suck it up.

comment Why are Taurine and Arginine essential components of the feline diet?
Oh and for me to accept your answer regarding Taurine I am going to need something to back that up I saw that article before you mentioned it but I wanted something more scholarly than wikipedia

comment Do Total Gastrectomies leave individuals more open to infections from eating unsanitary food?
Yeah I think so too that's why I even asked the question -- to confirm what makes sense.

comment Why are Taurine and Arginine essential components of the feline diet?
Arginine is not essential for adult humans. Cats and dogs probably (I don't know for certain but I'm guessing) require arginine because of its crucial role in the urea cycle and their high rate of ammonia production as a result of amino acid catabolism for energy production.
