      Nope. But blood clotting at the wrong time can be dangerous (but we knew that). We did find a couple of chemicals that do cause clotting at bad times, but it is not exactly dangerous unless you have a ton of it.

      Dangerous and sad. I learned that addiction can happen to anyone. There’s actually a problem in anesthesiology since we handle dangerous drugs all of time and some people steal them. Doctors die each year in this field from drug abuse overdose.

      My topic is Alzheimer’s disease. Every day, we learn more about how our environment, diet, and choices affect our risk for this disease and many others. In short, we need to be better about living a healthy life, because right now we are living dangerous lives.

      Yes. Genetics has a dangerous history with people using it to justify racism, sexism, and worse. We have to be careful to realize that every living thing is a product of its genetic background and its environment.
