Carp May Solve the Problem Related To Anoxia Related Diseases in Humans
Humans cannot hold our breath for a long time as oxygen is essential to keep us going. Scientists at the University of Oslo have recently discovered// how the Crucian Carp, a close relative of the goldfish, is able to live for months without oxygen.
This discovery is of great interest as it hel...
