There is a substance in the nicotine aimed to target my vocal chords to denature them. It will not work. It is not aimed at any bronchial destruction other than that aspect. By the way, aren't algae single celled bacteria? Not sure. HMMMM. Couldn't really understand the rest of the article. For my comprehension span is short: brief. Articles must be brief and to the point with a thesis and supporting statements in chronology. Thanks for the feed.

Algae are cyanobacteria. They get nutrition from photosynthesis, and are closely related evolutionarily to plants, who also get their nutrients using energy provided by the sun. Most other species of bacteria intake and metabolize chemical compounds in their environment to survive. The exception to this are thermophiles, those bacteria that congregate at hot springs, ocean vents, and other sources of thermal energy.

Mapping the biochemistry of simple organisms is vital to our understanding of intracellular molecular machinery. This has a variety of applications including the development of novel, synthetic and new forms of life.

Will link out to this article from an appropriate source as "Free Republic" is an exceptionally poor choice for gathering unbiased fact-based content.
