comment Cells scatter light in solution. Do they refract?
Scattering alone contributes to turbidity. Absorbance just causes attenuation of the amount of light (measured in flux) passing through the sample. The light coming out the other side is dimmer than what went in.

comment What are the features on a microscope one needs in order to do lab work?
Keep in mind that you will need it to have a camera to store the images, at least in a clinical or research setting. That will add quite a bit more expense. If you get creative, you can now use smartphone cameras for much less.

comment Food allergen-related skin reactions and intestinal inflammation?
I don't know for certain that is the causal direction, but that is the direction I was intending when considering that immediate contact with the food allergen initiates an allergic reaction, so it may stand to reason (I'm not an immunologist), that if the food is ingested, may then later cause gastrointestinal problems.

Oh, I see what you did then. No harm done.

comment Food allergen-related skin reactions and intestinal inflammation?
I don't see how that question is related. It deals with extra-intestinal diseases, of which, dermatologic conditions may be a subsequent symptom. This question deals with the reverse direction of causation. Skin contact -> intestinal issues.

comment Why is coffee a laxative?
It's not valid to compare anecdotal (or real, for that matter) effects of those drugs you mention to a specific effect of caffeine just because they are broadly classed as stimulant drugs. Those two drugs all have distinct mechanisms of action to how they work. However, if they increase gut motility (e.g., peristalsis) then it may coincidentally also increase defecation.
