New Research About Conception Has Everyone Relearning Middle School Biology
It's no secret that many people's sex education leaves a lot to be desired. Even before the facts of life get passed down to jaded science teachers across the land, the scientists themselves can get a few things wrong. This has been made apparent recently, with a study that suggests everything we know about conception is incorrect. Instead of the millions of sperm battling it out to reach a singular egg, it is the egg itself that selects sperm for its genetic assets, according to new research.
Learning that this vital knowledge about human biology has been turned on its head, Twitter users were understandably shaken. Following the revelation, they came out in force to process how the birds and the bees had been happening this way all along. Nature is beautiful, but people on the internet having a collective meltdown about science is even more so.
