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 Sitting much, thrombosis and hypoxia
@Masi one hypothesis for the original formation of the VTE is that venous stasis causes the haemoglobin in the static blood to desaturate resulting in hypoxic insult to the vein endothelium that then triggers the coagulation cascade. However, there isn't much of an evidence base behind this and it would be a cause of VTE rather than a consequence.

comment Regional circulation and Cardiac output?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about an abbreviation commonly used outside of the field of biology.

comment Regional circulation and Cardiac output?
Given the answer this is more of an English Language question than Biology so I'll close it.

comment Question about Autosomal Recessive Alleles
You should tell your teacher that's a terribly worded question then - "negative" definitely doesn't mean they have the disease! Not your error at all.

comment What does it mean when it's said so-and-so died a natural death?
There are lots of interpretations, a death without foul play, a non traumatic death, a death without attempt of resuscitation etc. We're not likely to be able to give a straight answer

comment Stomach sagittal section
Given that this is a mid sagittal image showing the right hand side of the body, the stomach isn't really in full view. It could possibly be the black structure immediately inferior to the liver in the centre of the image

There is on iPhone at least, I'm not sure on other platforms. You can always type up the markup manually (though it is a little cumbersome on mobile): ![an image](http://example.com/image)

comment How are T cells transported?
Hi Krushna, I'm not sure this answers the question of how T Cells move from bone marrow to the thymus beyond your very first sentence.
