you know how people assume homogenity when homogenity doesn’t in fact exist? oftentimes homogenity is a fairly accurate approximation for MOST cases, but it may not be one for some cases.

How is the calorie content in food measured? Not by feeding animals with it (after all, they go through dif. routes), bur rather, through external analysis. But then we assume that calories are absorbed equally efficiently from every food source – this may be far from the case in fact.

this may have applications to other fields too
