At a Glen Burnie 7-Eleven, Michael Kropkowski pulled the Diet Pepsi lever of the store's Slurpee-maker and watched as the cola-colored, icy slush climbed the sides of his tall, clear cup and filled the dome-shaped lid. A long straw topped off his creation. It might not be a cure for cancer, but it represented a sweet moment for a small Beltsville biotechnology firm that has spent years developing Tagatose, the low-calorie sugar substitute it contains. After years of struggles, Spherix Inc. is getting its first big shot at market acceptance.

When he shows up for work, David Nickle usually finds jewelry box-size packages scattered on his office floor, shipped from all over the world. The contents aren't particularly exotic - at least to the untrained eye. They're dead bugs, and they are what makes up the working life of Nickle, an entomologist at the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center. Termites from France. Katydids from Afghanistan. Thrips from South America. Nickle is one of the nation's foremost experts at identifying pests, insects that can cost farmers, gardeners and homeowners billions if left unchecked.

Week 42 in the tea study and Adam Sharpe is dreaming of white pizza and beer. Since mid-October nearly every morsel of food the 26-year-old Hyattsville landscaper has eaten has been prepared by cooks at the Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center. On weekdays, Sharpe has eaten his breakfasts and dinners in a small, drab cafeteria on the research center's campus. His lunches and weekend meals - even his Thanksgiving turkey - were precisely measured and packed for him to take home. And he has drunk tea, or a beverage that tastes like tea, five times a day, every day. "I had to change my whole lifestyle," said Sharpe.
