from their observations, the team estimates that low-density hydrogen clouds could collectively contain as much mass as the known population of galaxies.
Based on the amount of data we now have, extrapolating
from the mouse model to the human model is titillating but dangerous," says study coauthor Michael Potter of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md.
These findings, which surprised many scientists at the conference, highlight the pitfalls of extrapolating

from his design of a soil analysis system using the enhanced effect, Vo-Dinh came up with the novel data storage approach.
However, because the study was based on data from male miners, there is some uncertainty about extrapolating
the risk estimates to the home environment and to women and children.
The researchers warn against extrapolating
the results of the present study to humans.
