I have the following lists:
Hot Water Effects on Human Cells:
When human cells are exposed to hot water:
Denaturation of Proteins:
The proteins within cells denature,
losing their normal three-dimensional structure.
Cell Membrane Damage:
The cell membrane can be damaged by heat.
The lipids in the membrane become more fluid.
Increased Metabolic Activity:
Increase the metabolic activity of cells.
Can lead to cellular stress and even cell death.
Cold Water Effects on Human Cells:
Reduced Metabolic Activity:
Slow down the metabolic activity of cells.
This is one reason why hypothermia can be life-threatening.
Cell Membrane Changes:
Cell membrane to become less fluid,
potentially affecting its permeability and functionality.
Extreme cold can cause ice crystals to form
within and around the cells.
But I really want to see these up close under a microscope.
The temperatures don't have to be extreme. Just like mildly cold ice water vs. a warm shower. When the cold water hits a cell do you see it like bounce off? When the warm water hits a cell do you see it enter the cell?
