A few days ago, the Alps were covered with red glaciers, brushing the screen. Scientists have studied this phenomenon and found that the white glacier is covered with a layer of red algae. Due to the rising temperature, it provides a favorable environment for the growth of algae. In fact, the role of algae in nature is still very powerful. Scientists once put forward a crazy idea. If algae are put into blood vessels, can plants provide a continuous stream of oxygen for human beings?
Algae can release oxygen by photosynthesis
As we all know, algae are rich in chlorophyll, so they can absorb sunlight and release a lot of oxygen. The reason why the human brain can work normally is because of the balance of blood supply, but when people get old, their cardiovascular function will decline, and in severe cases, there will be cerebral hypoxia. With the improvement of living standards, scientists have discovered that the incidence rate of cerebral hypoxia has become younger and younger. If algae can be added to blood vessels, it may supplement oxygen and reduce the incidence of diseases.
Scientists implanted algae into tadpoles, which actually produced oxygen
Although this idea sounds feasible, it is difficult to implement. The scientists put the subjects on tadpoles. They cut off the heads of the tadpoles and injected oxygen into them to see if the brain cells of the tadpoles could continue to be active. Then the scientists implanted green algae into the tadpole’s blood vessels. Although the tadpole’s color changed, after the green algae entered the tadpole’s body, it really produced oxygen.
The scientists continued to observe the signs of life of the tadpole when the oxygen in its head was exhausted. Each organ of the head stops its corresponding activity, and when the algae enter the tadpole’s head. These organs have regained their activity and started signal transmission. It can be said that the results of this experiment are very successful, which makes scientists very happy. Since algae can produce oxygen when implanted into animals, the same should happen in humans.
The experiment of algae implanted into human body is controversial
Although the tadpole experiment has been a great success, the experiment of algae implantation in human body is still controversial. Assuming that algae can provide oxygen for human body after implantation, how long can the oxygen exist? How long can human beings survive? All kinds of energy in the human body are conserved. Will the sudden increase of oxygen do harm to the human body? These are all issues that need to be considered.
Therefore, the starting point of this idea is very good, but there is a lot of chance in its implementation. Scientists have never stopped studying algae. They continue to do some algae experiments to see if they can provide other energy supplements for the brain, which will take a long time to prove. What do you want to say about this bold experiment of scientists?
