smells associated with sour and acidic substances such as vinegar, fermenting milk or vegetables, wine or lemon. Can be pungent and sharp as Formic acid and Capric acid in goats’ milk, vinegary as acetic and propionic acid, or sourish and cheesy as isovaleric acid responsible for "locker room" odor, "dirty socks" smell and stinky feet. Some acidic breath or body odors are associated with yeast infections, cystic fibrosis and cancers, but it could also be a side effect of diet, medications and microbial imbalance (skin and gut flora)
common (80% of people have it) human skin condition, characterized by areas of skin with multiple noninflammatory follicular papules or comedones and by inflammatory papules, pustules, and nodules.
papules: small red raised bumps - infected hair follicles
pustules: small red pimples with pus
nodules: solid painful lumps beneath the surface of the skin
cysts - painful infections beneath the skin
Dermatologists are encouraged by early research showing link between probiotic use and clearer skin in acne and rosacea patients. Proposed treatments include probiotics applied to skin topically (e.g. unique "body-friendly" strains of P. acnes and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG) and taken orally.
something done as an action or a movement, for pleasure, as work (measurable amount of work performed to convert inputs into outputs), or for any other particular purpose.
Examples: problem solving, socializing, strength exercise, abdominal exercises, sexual activity
human monoclonal antibody against TNF-alpha (tumor necrosis factor-alpha, cell signaling protein - cytokine - involved in systemic inflammation). Adalimumab is produced by recombinant DNA technology using a mammalian cell expression system. It consists of 1330 amino acids and has a molecular weight of approximately 148 kilodaltons. Trade names: Humira (Abbvie) and Exemptia (biosimalr by Zydus Cadila). Adalimumab has been approved in the United States for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis (psA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis (Ps), moderate to severe hidradenitis suppurativa, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
Air-conditioned indoor environment. Air conditioning device controls the humidity, ventilation, and temperature to maintain a cool atmosphere. Could provide health benefits for breathing and for reducing harmful particulate matter through the various processes like filtration, humidification, cooling, and disinfection. For people with asthma or allergy to mold, it is advised to regularly change AC filters and use electrostatic filters that trap allergens.
Air conditioning can also be held responsible for a few health problems. If it is not properly maintained, it can actually facilitate the spread of micro-organisms such as Legionella pneumophila.
Air conditioning units can also generate sounds to which when someone is exposed over a considerably long period of time can lead to the individual's hear loss.
Cleaning conditions, building characteristics, products used in households, cultural habits, climate and outdoor environment can also influence air-conditioned indoor air quality.
Air pollutants are small and larger particles that can be drawn into the body, biological matter such as pollen, microbes or hair, and gas molecules that can be harmful to humans, animals and food crops.
Pollen can be as small as 10 micrometers (µm), tobacco smoke particles are about 0.01 µm, and smog (translucent cubes of smoke and fog primarily resulting from automobile combustion) as small as 0.001 µm.
The Clean Air Act requires EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for six common air pollutants: particle pollution, photochemical oxidants and ground-level ozone, carbon monoxide, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and lead. Examples of other toxic air pollutants include benzene, found in gasoline; perchlorethlyene, emitted from some dry cleaning facilities; methylene chloride, used as a solvent and paint stripper by a number of industries; asbestos released form some building materials, plastic and textiles; refrigerants released from vehicle air conditioners; airborne formaldehyde from smoke, cosmetics and disinfectants.
Akkermansia and its only (currently ) known species Akkermansia muciniphila is a probiotic bacteria, supposedly helping with weight loss. Akkermansia muciniphila make up 3-5% among hundreds of other gut bacteria in healthy individuals. In obese people the level of A. muciniphila bacteria falls sharply. Recently performed studies in rodents have indicated that Akkermansia muciniphila in the intestinal tract may mediate obesity, diabetes, and inflammation.
Prebiotic fiber such as oligofructose can help recover a failing gut colony of Akkermansia muciniphila. So can fish oil - its consumption increases populations of both Akkermansia and Lactobacilli. Akkermansia can be found in human milk. animal food sources, "beneficial" parasitic worms.
Urges and powerful desire to consume alcohol.
According to one study, the very smell of alcohol is likely to make it harder for individuals to control their craving.
Genetic makeup only accounts for half of addiction to consumption of alcoholic beverages, There are also countless environmental factors that can contribute. This includes accessibility of alcohol, work, stress, relationships, abuse and peer pressure.
