Episode 144 — Sensory Science

Recommended Posts

Have you ever wondered if you have synesthesia or if you are a super taster? Sensory science expert Corey Beilstine joins the Blastoff crew to test the gang with certain taste and smell experiments and teach us all a little about how the science of our senses works. This episode also includes a baby announcement and a great celebrity story!

Great episode, really cool topic and good guests. I got curious during last week's episode and looked up the Grammy results, so I was spared the heartbreak of having it broken to me here. Happy for Aaron (and Wife), but sad that he's leaving.

Here's some stats about Cancer.

13 million people in the US population currently have or have had cancer.

 

Current US population= 314 million

13/314= 0.0414

 

So, roughly 4% of USA population currently has or has had cancer.

 

1.6 million people get cancer in the US each year.

1.6/314= 0.0051

0.5 % of the human population get cancer each year.

 

About 1 out of every 200 people get cancer each year.

 

So be sure to scuttle back...
