Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

comment Does the lung absorb organic food?
Not well - see aspiration pneumonia - small amounts of food would be dealt with without too much problem, simply being coughed up. Lung tissue isn't designed to digest or absorb so I can't imagine it being anywhere near effective in this regard

comment Why ducklings are yellow?
Good to know that they're still alarmingly cute with their natural colourings though!

comment Many spermatozoa, but just one ovum
I'm not sure to be honest, some definitely wouldn't (for example loss of the acrosome) whilst others could potentially make it with reduced chances (minor tail defects etc.)

comment Many spermatozoa, but just one ovum
In addition to motility - up to 70% of sperm can be abnormal forms and this is still considered normal.

comment What constitutes the determination of a normal blood glucose level?
Summarising some of the bare bones of the document would actually improve your answer - admittedly the WHO website isn't likely to disappear overnight but files can be moved/renamed etc.
