Did you know that yogurt (especially the kind containing B. Lactis bacteria) can actually help decrease allergies? In a recent study, allergies decreased in the group that had a daily yogurt drink versus those who did not. The theory on how this works is that the good bacteria B. Lactis helps decrease the histamine producing cells of our body. (Histamines produce many of the symptoms of allergies.) Less histamine typically means less allergy symptoms.
Recycling packaging with the numbers 3 and 7 contain phthalate, which has been found to lower testosterone. Lower testosterone can lead to a variety of male and female sexual performance issues as well as overall health problems.
Animals are fed antibiotics at low doses to make them bigger. No one really knows why this causes animals to grow larger, but it does. The animals, which eat antibiotics, develop resistant bacteria in their gut. Animals, which are then fed to humans, have bacteria that can potentially spread to humans.
Animal feces (which can be antibiotic resistant) are used in fertilizer, which is used in the crops to feed both animals and humans. The antibiotic resistant bacteria can survive on crops and can be consumed by humans.
Thinner skin has the advantage that more cartilaginous detail can be seen, particularly in the nasal tip. In some cases, thinner skin can show too much detail for the patient’s liking. Some materials that are successful in camouflaging thinner skin are fascia and perichondrium.
Fat grafting can be used in addition to these materials to help thicken the subcutaneous layer of the nose. Fat grafting in the nose requires a thin smooth layer to be placed in thinner areas of the nose. Fat grafting can be performed in an office setting or in an operating room setting. It can be done at the same time as a rhinoplasty or after.
