      we should study everything. you never know what you’ll learn or how what you learn in one area could spark an idea in another. And in regards to your question if a certain animal seemed to be resistant to a particular disease or irregularity I’d say all the more reason to study it- we should find out why it’s so resistant and see if we can utilize something like that for other systems!
