But yeah, I know that GH isn't the only pituitary hormone. Probably just a translational error then :/ Wonder how pituitary translates into Japanese. You forgot MSH btw :P
Also, I find it very cool that ACt still reads manga as a doctor. A friend and I always joke around about paging each other to discuss OP (since it's supposedly got years to go) when we're consultants haha.
Heh - well, as nice as that would be to have a big time job and money, no, I am not a doctor. I have a baccalaureate and Master's in Biomedical Science and am undertaking a PhD in Physiology. I will be a doctor one day, but not an MD. Completely on the research side of things.
Which is why I have time to be on the internet.
But yeah, I have spent my time researching hormones so know them pretty well. My only comment was that I hoped it was just translation. I don't expect Oda to go into crazy accurate medical detail, but pretty much everyone has heard of Growth Hormone (It makes you grow!) that I can't fathom why he or anyone would choose not to use it in favour of "pituitary hormone" which feels like a "i want to sound smart... what word should I use..." Really not concerned, I just found it funny... I also can't let science go when it comes to these things.
A simple souvenir of someone's kill
And like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
Madness fills my heart and soul as if the great divide could swallow me whole
oh, how I'm breaking down
