Allergys Suck

Even though we are getting into the winter season here allergies still suck. Although they get better in the winter because the pollen count goes way down because the trees don’t reproduce in the winter. But they are still there for people with animal allergies or food allergies. But there are some rumors and misconceptions about these allergies. Like being allergic to eggs. Before you couldn’t get a vaccination because scientists would use egg embryos to grow the virus for something like the flu or rabies. But now scientists have made it safe for people with egg allergies to get the shot and make sure that they don’t get sick during the flu season. But then there is the misconception of a hypoallergenic dog or cat. In reality there is no hypoallergenic dog or cat its just an over exaggeration of it being less likely to cause a allergic reaction to the animal. But people think its the fur that causes an allergic reaction its not it’s the saliva that causes it because it gives off allergens.third people think that they are allergic to gluten. Many people are not actually allergic to gluten in fact it is very rare to be allergic. Most people just have a gluten intolerance and can’t process gluten products.


Heading a Soccer Ball

Soccer as we call it in the states or football anywhere else in the world is one of the most played sports in the world. You could even call it a language that you can use in almost every country. If you start talking about the Champions League and Manchester City or FC Barcelona they are going to understand what you are talking about. But soccer/football is also known for another thing. Head injuries. One of the most common injuries in practice is a head injury. Now a test is showing that it can also lead to brain injuries. This is very believable because I play soccer and I find it painful to head the ball more than fifteen times or so. I remember in middle school we had soccer practice after school for about an hour and a half. In that practice all we did was head soccer balls our coach would chip up into the air. I swear I headed the ball at least fifty times. When I went home I had a terrible headache. But as I age the ball is coming at me faster and faster. In professional leagues the ball can be traveling at fifty miles an hour. So I’m finding I can head less and less soccer balls. Doctors have done studies on men in their thirty’s and have played soccer and they are showing that they’re brains have been damaged more than a regular person. This is very important because it might cause changes in the game. Soccer players might have to wear helmets if brain damage becomes to much of a problem. I don’t think and hope this will not become to much of a problem because helmets would just be distracting and would take away from the game for me.
