Orange’cha glad I didn’t say bananas

Turns out that the cool mist that comes from orange peels that you used to light on fire as a kid has some more applied uses in the world of medicine. Researchers at the University of Central Florida “have figured out the mechanics of how oranges release that thin stream of fragrant oil when squeezed. They characterized the orange peels’ structure and figured out the role the layers have in creating the microjet dynamic. By mimicking nature’s mechanism of an orange layer, pharmaceutical companies may be able to develop a less expensive and less complex way to deliver airborne medication.” What’s next, using asparagus to change the smell of pee? Seems like Mother Nature is pretty smart and the folks at UCF are trying to learn from her. BTW, there is one word that rhymes with orange, so have-at-it pharma marketeers.
