George Richards MinotDied 25 Feb 1950 at age 64 (born 2 Dec 1885).American physician who received (with George Whipple and William Murphy) the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1934 for the introduction of a raw-liver diet to regenerate blood hemoglobin in the treatment of pernicious anemia, which was previously an invariably fatal disease. Later, he helped develop liver extract for oral use (now replaced by vitamin B12 injections). Earlier, during WW I, at the suggestion of Alice Hamilton, pioneer in industrial medicine at Harvard, Minot had investigated the anemia occurring among New Jersey ammunition workers. From studies of their blood, he found that the trinitrotoluene (TNT) used to fill shells acted as a poison, causing destruction of red cells, often producing anemia.
Christmas for mailman
I'm a mailman.
At Christmas this year, Mrs. Jankowitz met me at the door and invited me in for a great breakfast spread.
After I ate, I thanked her and she said, "There's more."
She took me to her bedroom and showed me moves I had never imagined.
I told her I had no idea she felt this way.
She said, "I don't."
I ask, "What was all this about?"
She says, "I asked the husband what to give the mailman."
He said, "Screw the mailman, breakfast was my idea."
