Alison learned how to make toxoplasma proliferate in mice from Ed Yong at The Atlantic.
Graycen learned about the horrors of Asian longhorned ticks from Beth Mole at Ars Technica. She also learned about the weird conspiracy theory that the government made Lyme disease (it pretty much definitely didn’t) from Kelly Vinette at Vice.
Alison read about teens and their energy drinks in a piece by Sara Talpos at Undark.
