Two consecutive days, two different men, two similar gestures, same newspaper

I only noticed this because I collected the unsold papers from yesterday and replaced them with today’s.

    Onion Toxicity and the Raw Food Diet: http://www.raw-food-health.net/Onion-Toxicity.html


    This article says that since so many different species of animals can be poisoned by and anemic from onions, that humans are most likely not exempt in that regard.

    When it comes to getting onion induced anemia, horses, dogs, cats, and monkeys are moderately susceptible and cattle are most susceptible whereas sheep and goats are resistant to getting it.

    The Sumac Family (Anacardiaceae): http://waynesword.palomar.edu/ecoph43.htm

    Poison oak, poison ivy, and poison sumac contain an allergen known as urushiol, which many humans can potentially develop an allergy to. This allergy give skin dematitis if you touch or brush against any part of these plants. These three plants are related to the Japanese lacquer tree, the mango tree, the cashew tree, and the pistachio tree, all of which have urushiol. The unrelated ginkgo tree also can have urushiol.

    As far as animals and poison oak/ivy/sumac allergy are concerned, it depends on the species. Some, like goats, deer, and many birds as well as banana slugs, are pretty much immune to getting allergic to it. Some, like mice, rabbits, dogs, cats, sheep, and rhesus macaques can have a sensitivity to urushiol, but are less likely to be allergic to it than humans. Guinea pigs are as likely as humans to get the allergy.

    I have a hypothesis, more humans are allergic to urushiol in the modern day and age with vaccinations (which cause allergies, especially food allergies) than in most of the time of our species existence when every human lived as nature intended for us to live (as hunter-gatherers) or close to it (traditional societies, limited agriculture). For example, peanut allergies were originally very rare and unheard of, but they are prevalent now. The food allergy epidemic is also quite recent. The very first time food allergies were even known was in 1839. As vaccination schedules increased, the risk of developing food allergies and allergies in general also increased.

    Vaccinations CAUSE Allergies: http://barbfeick.com/vaccinations/ or http://barbfeick.com/vaccinations/index.html

    I’ve heard that among the culture mediums used for vaccines are mangoes, cashews, and pistachios, which are relatives of poison oak and therefore can have urushiol. Maybe that is why poison oak/ivy/sumac allergies are so prevalent among humans.
