Why Is A Human Being Like A Loaf Of Bread? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why. “Why is a human being like a loaf of bread?” you ask? Good question.  Timely too. (Mind you, the way it was phrased makes it sound like one of The Riddler’s lines from the old Batman TV show. “Riddle me this, Batman! What do a blonde’s legs and her perfume have in common?” You get the idea, at any rate.)

So why is a human being like a loaf of bread? What could a person have in common with what’s basically a yeast culture? Well, humans and bread both come in different colors and both can be a bit crusty sometimes. Actually, a little research reveals a surprisingly simple but unthought-of answer.

As always though, we will consult with another source. Jim Algar, a contributor to Tech Times, confirms a new study was just published on this subject recently reported on a new, related study. He notes that researchers at The University of Texas at Austin discovered that “humans and a loaf of bread have a common ancestor, and we share hundreds of genes that haven’t changed all that much in a billion years.”

In fact, the study leader Edward Marcotte, a biologist at The University of Texas at Austin stated: “Cells use a common set of parts and those parts, even after a billion years of independent evolution, are swappable.”

Marcotte concluded: “It’s a beautiful demonstration of the common heritage of all living things – to be able to take DNA from a human and replace the matching DNA in a yeast cell and have it successfully support the life of the cell.”

Why is a human being like a loaf of bread? Now you know.
