Keep your tongue to yourself

Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a congenital disorder of the body's chloride (salt) channels is tested for in modern times via a chloride sweat test (a lab diagnosis). However, we learned in lecture that CF was historically tested for by physicians licking babies to see if they tested salty. Obviously, this practice has fallen out of vogue.

Upon hearing this, I turned to J-Rock...

Andy: Can't you picture Mello saying that?

Andy: (pretending to be Mello) My sister tastes salty!

Yes, he could.
