A New Catch Word
For those of you who are old enough to remember the program The Jeffersons (from the 1970’s), there was a character named JJ whose favorite expression was, “Dyno-MITE.” Given the huge prevalence of hepatitis C virus infection, I think we need a new expression, “Hepato-CYTE.” It rolls off the tongue. Just imagine, someone is talking to you about an idea that sounds good to you, and you exclaim, “Hepato-CYTE.” Sure, you will sound certifiably off your rocker, but think of the opportunity to educate people about their liver cells. Besides, how often does the word hepatocyte come up in daily conversation?I think this idea is Hepato-CYTE.
