Science: The scientific process takes time; knowledge builds gradually, iteratively, and collaboratively.

  • Step #1 – Anecdotally, several ovarian cancer survivors report noticing that their abdomen swells uncomfortably after consuming a salty meal.

  • Step #2 – Conduct an online survey with a “Citizen Science” project; the goal will be to have 250 surveys completed by women living with their omentum intact and 250 surveys completed by women cancer survivors living without an omentum; 500, or more, completed surveys in total. 

  • Step #3 – Future, if there is a statistically significant difference, prepare grant proposals to obtain funding to conduct a clinical study focused on the omentum and the processing of salt.

 Question: Does living without an omentum affect the body's ability to process salt? Both individuals with an omentum; and individuals without an omentum will be needed for the success of the informal citizen science project.... Stay tuned...
