Arteriosclerosis is a widespread, dangerous and chronic disease. The participants at Baylab in Poland learn which problems arise for those affected. Using a soup of corn, carrots and parsley, junior researchers imitate the properties of human blood flow. From this model, they realize how blood flow is disturbed with atherosclerosis. Other discoveries can be made in the subjects of Baylab Warsaw, including eyesight, bees, important crops and the vitamin C content of different foods.
