Japan's New Temporary Tattoos Detect A Common Food Allergy.
Food allergies are no joke. As many of you might know, being allergic to foods like nuts, eggs, and wheat flour can cause a range of extremely dangerous symptoms, ranging from itching and nausea to even painful swelling of the throat and airways. Japan has been taking a pretty impressive proactive stance for early allergy detection - and the method they've employed to get the job done might really surprise you! These 'ukiyo-e'-inspired temporary tattoos have been specially created to indicate whether or not the wearer is allergic to soba. Soba, a staple noodle popularly enjoyed in the country, is made from buckwheat, the top food-related allergen among children in East Asia - with the strongest reactions resulting in anaphylactic shock. If the wearer is not allergic, the tattoo will remain a black-and-white design. If the wearer has an allergy, sudden red detailing will appear. And, differently from a traditional allergy test, this indication does not result in burning or itching skin. The tattoos are currently being used by the 230 Soba Street Promotion Association, a Hokkaido-based group of soba noodle restaurateurs along the region's popular foodie destination, Route 230. They hope that this kind of technology will catch on and encourage similar products to be made for other common food allergies. Would you rock one of these tattoos? Let me know in the comments below what you think of this story, and for more strange but true developments in the name of science, follow my Weird Science collection!
Invisible Illness Awareness Week Spet. 28 - Oct. 4, 2015
A chronic condition is any condition or disease that either develops over the course of time or persists for at least 3 months. As a general rule, a chronic condition cannot be prevented or cured by medication. The symptoms of most chronic conditions can be treated, but these conditions also will not just fade away or disappear. An invisible illness is a chronic condition or disability that tends to be, well, invisible to everyone except the person suffering. To everyone else looking in, this person seems to be fine. They look healthy and, more likely than not, happy. They tend to wear the most careful of "masks" to hide how much pain and discomfort that they are in all the time. Some of these illnesses include pain, chronic fatigue, cognitive dysfunctions, dizziness, brain injuries, learning differences and mental health disorders, as well as hearing and vision impairments. More than 130 million Americans are affected by a chronic illness. 96% of those people are suffering in silence, a victim of invisibility. Many times, they smile and lie, saying, "I'm fine, doing ok", even to those that they love - spouses, children, parents, and even doctors. The plight of someone with an invisible illness is a lonely one. Can you imagine suffering in silence? We have all done this at some point. But could you do it every single day? It is our nature as humans to judge one another based entirely on what we see. For many people with a disability, there is a way to see it, a visible impairment such as a wheelchair, cane, walker, even a limp. You look at that person and you know that they have a condition of some sort. You may even go out of your way to help them by opening a door or assisting them across a crosswalk. 74% of people with a disability do not use any of the aforementioned assistive devices. For those dealing with an invisible illness, there is typically nothing to show another person that they are in any way impaired! How can you help? First, remember that every single person is different. Just because someone is in a wheelchair does not mean that they can't do a lot more than you might expect. Keep that same thought in mind for those suffering from invisible illnesses. They may look perfectly capable to you, but sometimes they simply aren't at 100% and will not be able to do everything that you think they should. Next, treat everyone with respect and kindness. You have no idea what they are dealing with on a daily basis. If someone looks tired, do not assume that they spent the previous evening at a party! (Yes, this has happened to me.) Be considerate and thoughtful. Don't make assumptions about people feel. Instead, ask. Ask how that person feels. Ask someone if they need help. Finally, join us this week for Invisible Illness Awareness Week, running from September 28 through October 4, 2015. This annual event was started in 2002 by a woman named Lisa Copen. After living many years with an invisible illness, she decided that we need to spread awareness, educate one another, and create a network of people helping one another to deal with the battle that we are silently fighting one at a time. This year's theme is My Invisible Fight. Here on Vingle - and elsewhere - I will be doing my part to help spread awareness and shed a light on my own invisible fight. Later tonight, I will posting something called "Our 30 Things". This is basically a "30 questions" for those of us fighting a chronic condition. If you would like to post your 30 things, please, let me know and I will tag you in that post. Remember that you Are Not ALONE. You are no longer INVISIBLE. Together, we are Stronger. Edit: here is that card - My 30 Things. Are you asking yourself if you even "qualify"? If you are asking, then you do. There are thousands of illnesses that are considered "invisible". This explanation is from the Invisible Disabilities Association: "We do not maintain a list of specific illnesses and diagnosis’s that are considered invisible disabilities. Invisible disabilities are such symptoms as debilitating fatigue, pain, cognitive dysfunctions and mental disorders, as well as hearing and eyesight impairments and more. There are thousands of illnesses, disorders, diseases, dysfunctions, birth defects, impairments and injuries that can be debilitating. Therefore, all conditions that are debilitating are included when we talk about invisible disabilities..." Again, if you even think you MIGHT qualify, then you likely do! #invisiblefighting
Benefits of incorporating head massage into the post-workout routine
Barring the fact that head massages can feel extremely relaxing and enjoyable, they can also bring you immense relief, especially after a workout. Let us dive in to understand what changes take place in our bodies after a head massage which makes us feel rejuvenated almost instantly: How can head massage help after a workout The back and legs are the focus of most massages, and while these massages can be extremely helpful, adding head massage to the mix, especially after a workout elevates a person’s overall well-being. A workout can leave the human body sore and in pain. Head massage helps relieve neck and back pain. It also attacks stress and anxiety and relieves you from the symptoms caused by these afflictions. The muscles present around the head respond positively to touch and being in such close proximity to the brain, the massage can help ease muscle spasms and knots in different parts of the body that might have experienced tension during the workout. Not only that, head massages can even reduce depression symptoms and positively influence anxiety levels as seen in this study conducted on 24 female students. How does it work A masseuse targets the pressure receptors present in the skin that sends signals to the brain through a network of nerve endings and receptors. The heavier the density of receptors present in the targeted area, the more relaxed your body will feel. It is well known that the back and legs have significantly lesser receptors present than your face and head. Thus, including a head massage to your routine of massage after a workout can help your body heal and recover more progressively. The chemistry behind it The feel-good hormones such as serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin released in the body after a good head massage can help not just your physical but mental well-being as well. Positive external stimuli such as a massage can have psychosomatic benefits as it has proven to alter brain chemistry. This results in your mind influencing your body to feel good. Likewise, pain or discomfort can harm your mental health. Head massage is a stone that can be used to kill both the stones at once as it can help relieve discomfort while simultaneously altering your brain chemistry to make you feel good. How head massage can help in recovery Studies have discovered that employing Indian Head Massage to patients can help in easing muscle tension, leave them energized, and help them break past the negative psychological thoughts hindering their speedy recovery. More research is being done to establish a concrete link between the use of Indian Head Massage and improved recovery from illness and injury. However, enough patients have shown positive results to indicate that practicing Indian Head Massage can help with recovery from injuries. On one hand, doctors and other medical professionals employ their knowledge to help patients recover from an injury. However, patients can take multiple approaches to speed their recovery. It is a well-known fact that a positive mood can help the overall well-being of a person. So, physical therapies when combined with techniques such as the Indian Head Massage which affects the parasympathetic nervous system can prove to be a more holistic approach. Your muscles face immense shear and tear when you work out. They are prone to injuries and every time you use a set of muscles; they need time to recover back to their normal state. Employing head massages after a workout can accelerate the recovery process and have you back on your feet in no time. So, conclusively head massages should be made a part of your post-workout routine to aid you to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Man Plays Saxophone While Receiving Brain Surgery
A team of doctors in Spain became medical pioneers after performing neurosurgery on 27-year-old Carlos Aguilera while he remained conscious and playing his saxophone. Carlos was undergoing surgery to have a brain tumor removed, and as a diehard musician, the medical team didn't want him to have to lose his ability to play his saxophone any time soon. His neurosurgeon, Dr. Guillermo Ibáñez of the Regional Hospital of Málaga, insisted that playing the instrument mid-surgery would help the team keep the part of the brain that deals with music language unharmed during the tumor removal. According to the BBC, the patient performed a number of jazz standards for a team of sixteen medical professionals - during a surgery that lasted OVER 12 HOURS! After the surgery proved to be a success and Carlos had properly recovered, both he and his doctor participated in a press conference, where he explained how it felt to be the first patient in such an experimental surgery: "Music is what has accompanied me half a lifetime, so when the doctors told me I could do that, I did not think twice." A recording of the surgery has been made available to the Associated Press, so if you haven't hit your quota of extremely strange YouTube videos yet this week, the following clip is for you. (WARNING: It's definitely an uncensored surgery video, so proceed with caution.) So what do you guys think? Would you have been brave enough to pull this off?
