Can someone explain the putting sugar on a wound to me?
#24 to #20 - cyuas ONLINE (08/27/2013) [-]
In my limited knowledge of the world, I would guess that the extra energy directly on the spot helps to encourage cellular repair? Then again, I am spouting this out my ass.

Atleast you put effort in to responding to me

yeah im pretty sure he's got it covered   
   
but if you want a response with more big words, i think what's going on in pain is the nerve cell repairing itself, and since glucose (or in the case of cane sugar, sucrose, which is basically glucose x2) is being put directly on the area instead of taken from within the body, i'd guess that the pain is so fleeting that it's practically non-existent   
   
here's another hulk gif for ya    
[or would you prefer a twerk gif? i have those too ]

Emm, but doesn't the glucose have to be converted into ATP first?
(Adenosine Tri-phosphate)
#145 to #114 - AnonymousDonor (08/27/2013) [-]
well yeah
but that process takes place so quickly in your cells' mitochondria that, i imagine, it would still be pretty instantaneous

i mean im a physical chemist not a biologist, so don't take my word verbatim, but just think of how much sugar you're dumping on there

say you grab enough to coat the cut in at least a layer (maybe 1/8 a teaspoon?)
let's say that's...~0.5 grams sucrose - at 342.3 g/mol, that's 1.76*10^21 molecules of glucose, each roughly ~1nm in size swarming up on cells that are on the order of ~0.1mm tops

which basically means you're dumping a ridiculous amount (~1.8*10^14 times as large as any single cell) all at once in a tiny area
and such a high concentration will push the glycolysis reactions heavily toward product formation [le chatelier's principle] and the rate of the glucose -> ATP will skyrocket

TL;DR it just goes really fast

It doesn't work, it isn't a fact.
Much like majority of these fun 'facts'.

#136 to #118 - anonymous (08/27/2013) [-]
Nop, looked it up, neither of them died. One guy in the same area did though
User avatar #144 to #136 - babs (08/27/2013) [-]

the waterfall underwater is not a fact... its sand, not water under water, as this isnt bikini bottom

I can confirm that the insomnia fact is accurate.

"A waterfall under the sea" isn't a fact. I'm not even sure it counts as a sentence.

I always wondered why I couldn't sleep ever since my brother is gone. We shared rooms my whole life and he was my best friend and now I just lay awake at night with an empty bed in my room. I wish he was still here...

Just a thing for you guys.
Sugar on wound does help, but it also feeds the bacteria and greatly increases chance of infection. So be very careful with that one.
