The conclusion, which may sound a bit odd, comes from a study that was conducted by medical researchers and scientists at Queen Mary University of London.
The team behind the study investigated the genes of sea urchins and sea cucumbers and found the results indicated above -- these creatures have the ability to alter the elasticity of the collagen that exists in their bodies.
The researchers studied thousands of the underwater creatures and were able to determine that their genes were actually able to soften or, in some cases, harden, their collagen. According to the lead researcher, "it's an incredibly important and valuable discovery."
It is also very exciting according to the medical professionals because, even though sea urchins and s ...
