❝A psychiatrist once told me early in treatment, “Stop trying to make me like you,” and what a sobering and welcome smack in the face that statement was. Yet somehow, every day of my life is still a campaign for popularity, or better yet, a crowded funeral.❞
Hutt Lagoon is a salt lake in Western Australia with a large population of Dunaliella salina algae giving the distinctive red and pink coloration. To survive, these organisms have high concentrations of β-carotene to protect against the intense light, and high concentrations of glycerol to provide protection against osmotic pressure. This salt lake is currently used as a Dunaliella salina algae farm for use in cosmetics and dietary supplements.
