  1. "Should we be worried about foreign substances, no." Well, what this young gentleman fails to point out is that we don't have an infinite amount of white blood cells or macrophages. If you're constantly assigning the majority of your cells the job of fighting off foreign substances, the fewer cells you will have to fight off any form of natural biological ailments. Remember, the fewer of these specific white blood cells a person has, the more susceptible a person is to a weakened immune system. My advise, do your research and piece the facts together. The conclusions will be obvious. With this younger generation, no one likes to outwardly say that something is "bad for you" for fear that it will offend.

  2. Excellent!!!!!!👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  4. I have a shoulder scar from 2 tendons and roto cuff repair. It's the shape of a butterflies body. It was suggested I have butterfly wings and head put around it. It won't work I'll bet because the layers are messed up…. thoughts anyone?????

  5. I worked with a gal that was from the hippie generation. Later in life she had a life sized image of Jerry Garcia's head tattooed on her thigh. One day she told us about it and pulled up her skirt. As her skin had aged and gotten a bit saggy and wrinkled, Jerry's face aged quite a bit in appearance with that. 😮🤣🤣

  6. I have no tattoos. I pretend I dont like them but I'm actually scared of the needles and would probably have a whole body sleeve if I were braver 😂

  7. I do really respect other people's believes and preferences but…im a guy fighting psoriasis and rare autoimmune skin disorders…i do really appreciate have a healthy and perfect skin…I would Never Ever put a atom of foreign chemical substance in to my skin…

  8. I'm not sure but ,if anyone else wants to uncover study guide for human anatomy & physiology try Laophiaa Cranial Blueprint (search on google ) ? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got great success with it.
