About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

  1. The amazing part of this article is that science has known that the intestines have the most neurons second to the brain, but assuming that there was no connection between the two is what is amazing.

    There are discoveries to be made in everything. expecially when people think there is nothing left to find.

    • I was taught that the gut has it’s own nervous system, able to contorl movements like peristalsis indepenedently, roughly intelligent as a worm. Still connected to CNS, as reflected in gut symptoms related to stress.

      • That is exactly why this is so monumentous. Surely, there is some autonomy because there are so many neurons, but as was just found there is still a connection to the brain that has been overlooked for over 50 years!

        Just as an FYI, if sections of the intestines are removed from the body they will still operate the contractions to push food matter through.
