A person cannot taste food unless it is mixed with saliva. For example, if a strong-tasting substance like salt is placed on a dry tongue, the taste buds will not be able to taste it. As soon as a drop of saliva is added and the salt is dissolved, however, a definite taste sensation results. This is true for all foods.

Okay this is a 2fer today, my dad sent this to me and it blows my mind so I have to share it:

The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000 and the accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000. So the accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. These statistics are courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services.

Now think about this:

The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000 and the number of accidental gun deaths per year for all age groups is 1,500. So the number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188. These statistics are courtesy of the FBI

So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Contest!

These stats are for accidental deathes. I suspect that intentional deathes, maimings and injuries are at least slightly high amung gun owners than doctors. But it certainly is a disturbing comparison of factoids.

yes it's a comparison on accidental deaths, but what blew me away is how much the pharmaclogy industry has exploded in this nation and who prescribes these medicines? physicians. according to these facts you have a 17% chance of dying accidentally (for any reason) as a result of the actions of your physician.

Rubbing your hands on your chrome water faucet will take the smell of garlic, onions, or just about any other substance off your hands better than rubbing your hands with lemon or washing with soap.

According to Genesis 1:20-22 the chicken came before the egg.



20And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
