comment Introductory biology text for an outsider
What aspect of biology do you wish to learn? (Human biology, plant biology or Zoology? I'm guessing you are interested in human biology from your e-mail). For example are you looking to explore mathematical applications within biology?-e.g. mathematical biology or you just want to study biology in your leisure.

comment Is the resting state of the forearm in the pronated or supinated position?
I agree with the above answer. Also, we all tend to use our forearm more in the pronated form (holding, hand shake, driving, etc) so I guess it becomes second nature to us.

comment Why do antibiotics have a special importance when taking lactulose?
@winerd I meant it reduces transit time-you're right.

comment Why do antibiotics have a special importance when taking lactulose?
@AndroidPenguin, this just makes sense to me-just like having a diarrhoea which also interferes with absorption. Most laxatives will eventually cause diarrhoea which will interfere with absorption of other nutrients.

@winerd but within the context of constipation, anything you take will linger in your GI tract for much longer. In theory, a laxative should increase your transit time but bearing in mind that lactulose interferes with absorption, this might be the case.

@AndroidPenguin Thanks for pointing that out-its a higher temperature. I'll edit my answer.
