Warning, How Important is Washing Packages Before Eating ContentsWritten by Alfred Jones
A stock clerk was sent to clean up a storeroom in Maui, Hawaii. When he got back, he was complaining that storeroom was really filthy and that he had noticed dried mouse or rat droppings in some areas.
A couple of days later, he started to feel like he was coming down with a stomach flu, complained of sore joints and headaches, and began to vomit. He went to bed and never really got up again. Within two days he was severely ill and weak. He was rushed to emergency at Pali-Momi, where he was diagnosed to be suffering from massive organ failure. He died shortly before midnight.
No one would have made connection between his job and his death, had it not been for a doctor who specifically asked if he had been in a warehouse or exposed to dried rat or mouse droppings at any time. They said there is a virus (much like Hanta virus) that lives in dried rat and mouse droppings. Once dried, these droppings are like dust and can easily be breathed in or ingested if a person does not wear protective gear or fails to wash face and hands thoroughly.
An autopsy was performed on clerk to verify doctor's suspicions.
This is why it is extremely important to ALWAYS carefully rinse off tops of canned sodas or foods, and to wipe off pasta packaging, cereal boxes, and so on. Almost everything you buy in a supermarket was stored in a warehouse at one time or another, and stores themselves often have rodents. Most of us remember to wash vegetables and fruits but never think of boxes and cans.
What Causes Adult Acne?Written by Tim Gorman
For many people question of “what causes adult acne” has been a tireless quest in search of an answer to a problem that plagues many individuals worldwide. For instance 90 percent of all adolescents and almost 25 percent of all adults are acne sufferers. In terms of gender approximately 50% of all adult men and 50% of all adult women suffer or have suffered from some form of acne. One difference in gender is where acne outbreak takes place and severity of zits and blackheads that form. Males more often have severe form of acne rather than females, due to their hormones. Generally infected areas that tend to break out most frequently (the chest and back) are unfortunately more difficult to treat.
The real cause of acne can actually be a blend of several factors. Typically there are several steps that lead to zits, pimples, blackheads and minor skin blemishes. The main cause of acne is due to blocking or clogging of hair follicles, more commonly know as pores. Unfortunately reasons and combination of events that cause pores to become clogged isn’t fully known. There are many contributing elements for teenagers and adults alike, which can include hereditary factors such as whether or not there is a history of acne problems and if so, to what extent, hormones, dietary and vitamin supplemental intake and stress related factors. Other forces or events that can strongly influence development of acne and pimples include your body’s normal function of eradicating itself of its dead skin cells. If this cycle gets out of whack or becomes irregular due to climate and other environmental forces or overall body health at time it can cause your hormones and their effect on your own body’s sebum production to increase which is bad for your complexion but outstanding for breeding acne.
