So, I just learned today that these adorable little fuzzy caterpillars are scary as hell.
You’d probably never guess that petting one can cause agonizing pain, rashes, internal bleeding, breathing difficulty, welts, or other violent reactions. Their fur is venomous spines. Look at how they purposely appear so cute and soft and make you want to touch them.
Deceptive deadly little motherfuckers.
The more you know.
never petting cute fuzzy caterpillars again omg
Never touch any fuzzy ones. Most will give you a annoying rash, in the least. Don’t chance it.
So Folks, Livvie has strep throat! I’m going to do a quick write up on it in a bit. And now for a PSA
I won’t be updating for a bit, I have to turn my laptop in on the 11th, because i am using a school loaned one. Once in a while I’ll update from my Ipod or my moms laptop, but since both are hard to use…… Yeah. It’s not like I update everyday or anything, but i won’t be able to. So in the mean time, send questions, and or things you’d like me to talk about!
…. So you’re saying that we should be drinking human milk. Oh. Cause this makes sense.
Doctors do some stupid shit to make you keep going back to them, so they get more money, but actually put you in danger? No. I’ve gone a couple months without milk, now i didn’t get a fracture, but guess what. I had more joint pain, I was stiffer, I was having bonepain.Yes, that’s right. You can have pain, IN YOUR BONES. Cow’s milk isn’t that bad for you. It really isn’t. Yes, you could argue with the pasteurization, But be my guest to drink unpasteurized milk. see how fast you get sick/gain weight. And I know the hormones put into the cows is awful. but it’s only the hormones making our bones long, and a little weaker. If you keep up your vitamin D and your Calcium intake, it’s really not that bad for you. Guess what folks? If you stop drinking milk because of hormones, Stop eating chicken, beef, pork, turkey, soy products, wheat products, vegetables and fruits.Farms use steroids, and other growth provoking products, even in organic products. There are reasons, people, that places all around the world have been drinking COWS milk. For real, guys. They may have less fractures, because the doctors take better care of the people, For christ’s sake, in Europe, most countries have government health care. Which means everyone has it, so, more health care. Less fractures? They take better care of their athletes, which is where most of our fractures total up from. Have you noticed the US schools push their athletes so hard, and over the edge? Or maybe just think, we have stupider people who do stupid stuff. Cow’s milk is the best source of calcium, I mean, who wants to be popping pills everyday? You’d need to eat approximately 7 cups of broccoli to make the days worth of it. http://www.fitsugar.com/How-Much-Calcium-182622
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease of the skin. This disease occurs when one of the main features of the immune system – recognition between self and non-self — is compromised.
We shed skin periodically as an immunity measure for the body. When cells of the first layer are shed, the second layer is already beneath it. Since this takes place on a microscopic level, we do not notice it. However, in psoriasis, our brain gets confused and identifies our own skin as a potential threat to our body. Therefore, T-cells attack our skin at various points on our body. This causes a major inflammation and in order the heal the damage, the skin undergoes rapid growth which leads to over accumulation of skin layers. Since the upper layers haven’t been shed yet and there are already multiple layers formed, the skin appears scaly and reddish at various places, similar to a rash. Having such rashes all over the body due to major confusion in our immune system is known as psoriasis.
People afflicted with Psoriasis exhibit the following symptoms:
- Scaly red inflamed skin
- Flaky scalp and skin
- Pitted fingernails
Psoriasis is caused by immune system, hence drugs like methotrexate and cyclosporin are used. Sometimes, drugs like infliximab and adalimumab are used.
if so were joint pain, your lowerback/knees a symptom?
im 4 days off caffeine and the headaches and tiredness are gone..but now im unusually sore.
Coming off of caffeine can be tolling on your body if you don’t do it right. Quitting cold turkey maybe seem like a good Idea, if you are going from drinking 10 cups a day (okay maybe that’s a little drastic) to none, but it’s putting your body through a shock. The withdrawal symptoms can be crippling. Caffeine is a drug, and should really be treated as such. Quitting cold turkey from large amounts to nothing would be like expecting a 15 year crack addict to one day be okay if they didn’t have anymore fixes when they are used to 3-5 fixes a day, everyday. It is best to cut down say from 10, to 8, for a day or two, if there isn’t any withdrawal symptoms, cut down to 6. Still no symptoms, cut down to 4, and so on. Wean your self off of it. Remember, caffeine can be found in Coffee, soda, tea, energy drinks, energy bars, and such. I’m sure I probably missed some. I may not be a doctor, but I know what it’s like to go from tons of caffeine to little or none. Quitting flat out is not the way to go.
I won’t be posting much unless people ask questions, so I know what kind of things to talk about. But in the mean time, any articles you’d like writ up, or to know more about? feel free to leave it in my ask! or reblog/reply!
Wow it’s amazing to see this, holy shet.
surferdude23 asked: What could you tell me about bi-polar disorder?
Well Personally I can tell you in most people I know with it, if they are not on medication for it, they have extreme mood swings. A pregnant woman’s mood swings have nothing on Bipolar mood swings. But on medication, It’s very well controlled, and You wouldn’t know otherwise. The person will appear very normal. Bipolar disorder is also commonly known as manic depression, because the extreme mood swings can cause Anything from severely reckless behavior because the person may feel they can do what ever, because it could cause over confidence, and that is bad. But the worst part i’d say is the depression part because it can cause immediate onset of a depression like state, and if unattended to, the person can become suicidal. This is the reason why most people who are suspected of it are tested for it, then put on medication to control the mood swings, so the person can be safe. Of course there are many parts other than extreme happiness or confidence, and depression, there is anger, disgust and everything in between. It’s a very serious mental illness that should be treated as such and should not be joked about, but people with it should be treated as a normal person because they are normal, and have normal thought processes.
Anonymous asked: WHY DO MEN HAVE NIPPLES. IT'S NOT NORMAL.
I’m not 100% sure why have men have nipples. Some say it is for the same reason women do, although men do not have mammary glands. Men do not need them, because they do not nurse their young, but I believe it is because we share DNA with both of our biological parents, And where a female has nipples, we all inherit half from our mothers, so wouldn’t it make sense that men had them too? I mean human offspring are essentially copies of their parents.
EDIT: My friend, magiadelotus.tumblr.com, Reminded me that essentially all babies before fine developments in the womb take place, are female. So this being said, a male baby’s nipples will just carry over from being female. Testosterone is what makes the baby male, And this is caused by having a Y chromosome.
I hope this helps, anon.
