Address your addiction in more ways than one
Avocados; a simple fruit that is firm yet creamy. Many would class this as the crown jewel of all fruits. Take a moment to review the many uses of this mysterious fruit.
Vegetarians all over the world are well aware that a single avocado would silence any claims from a meat eater that the vegetarian diet does not consist of enough protein but the majority of people would be surprised to hear that the avocado has tons of uses.
Celiac Disease: Not a myth
There was once a Greek physician called Aretaeus of Cappadocia who was the first to discover Celiac disease (CD).
He may have discovered it but neither he nor anyone else knew that the root cause was a reaction to gluten. What is gluten? It is a protein found in wheat. This was not made clear until 1950 which was several centuries later when a Dutch paediatrician named Dr Willem Dicke conclusively proved gluten as the culprit. This discovery could not have come sooner as Dicke saved millions and millions of children and adults from this untreated disease. Its symptoms if untreated vary from severe neurological illness, stunted growth, malnutrition and in severe cases, it can cause death.
Human Intestinal Parasites
There are three types of intestinal human parasites that have the ability to live inside the small and large intestines: roundworms, tapeworms and protozoa. There are certain types that will stay within the intestines but others will travel outside and unfortunately invade other organs of the body. There are some that are extremely small that can only be seen under a microscope but there are some that can be up to a foot long.
