It’s very exciting and at the same time very stressful for you and all of those around you.
Soon after a new carpet has been installed, house-dust mites will be busy making themselves at home. Microorganisms, such as bacteria and molds, can also thrive in carpeting, which provides them with a warm, moist environment with plenty to eat. Dirt will inevitably be walked into the carpet from outside, depositing traces of soil, pollen, animal dander; animal waste products, pesticide residues, mold spores, and so on. All of these can cause allergies. This is a good reason to adopt a “no-shoes” policy in the home, for guests as well as members of the family.View full post

The onset of asthma commonly takes place in childhood, but it can start at any age. For most children with asthma (about 80 percent), and for more than half the adult sufferers, there is an allergic basis for their disease – this means that being in contact with a specific allergen makes their symptoms worse.

Common allergens in the home are those relating to house-dust mites, cockroaches, and to pets.View full post

Dark matter is a mysterious form of matter which exerts gravitational effects on ordinary matter but cannot be observed via any other means. While conventional matter can be detected through stellar activity, light scattering, radio emissions, and other means, dark matter clouds are invisible to the vast majority of our instruments.

Most pigment changes in the skin can be attributed to two major factors: hormonal shifts (pregnancy and the use of oral contraceptives are likely culprits) and prolonged exposure to the sun. An old injury, a disease, or an incorrectly administered cosmetic procedure can also contribute to this uneven accumulation of skin pigment in the form of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation. When the cause is hormonal, the pigmentation is called melasma, and it shows up as irregularly shaped blotches, usually on the cheeks, forehead, and upper lip.
