new growth would be measured, recorded, and compared to the control. Following this, all of theused and unused material would be discarded.
Thursday, June 26 – Conduct and complete the first part of the experiment. Record dataon Creatine vs. Pulsation Rates.
Thursday, July 03 – Begin second part of the experiment. Place worm segments in wellsto regenerate for a week.
Thursday, July 10 – Record the amount of worm growth. Finish experiment. Beginanalysis of the data.
Since Creatine has come onto the market, there has been ongoing research to ensure thesafety of the popular supplement. With this experiment, we hope to pinpoint any specific hazardsthat Creatine-usage or over-dosage has on the vascular system, perhaps revealing any potentialhazard to people with heart conditions. Due to lack of experience with such supplements, we canonly speculate as to its direct effects on the California Black Worms.
