|It isn?t often that reading a label will make you sick Pavel Buchnevich Rangers Jersey , but there are exceptions!
Reading labels on medicines has been identified as one cause of phantom illnesses ranging from serious diseases, such as cancer, to minor ailments such as a bout of flu ? the latest is the rise in the number of cases of swine flu which fortunately, turn out to be nothing more than a sniffle. One warning sign is when the doctor writes on your prescription, ?Oink Brady Skjei Rangers Jersey , Oink, Boom!?, which is the sound a flying pig makes breaking the sound barrier!
Medications are big business in the US with billions of dollars spent on drugs which are prescribed or are available over the counter. By law, every medication must come with a label which highlights what the medicine is to be used for and possible side effects or contra indications.
Frequent side effects are quoted as headaches, fatigue Rick Nash Rangers Jersey , dizziness, feeling sleepy or having difficulty concentrating. All are vague in their nature but when they are coupled with warnings that some patients may suffer from an increased risk of something more serious, a stroke or cardiac episode, the effect of reading the label combined with an overactive imagination can lead people to believe they have something more sinister.
The culprit is how the mind works, and psychiatrists have identified a condition termed the ?nocebo effect?. This is the opposite of a placebo ? a placebo will make you feel better though it may be a pill containing nothing more medical or therapeutic than powdered milk. Nocebos actually invoke feelings of ill health even though there is David Desharnais Rangers Jersey , in fact, nothing wrong with the patient, but before you think this is quackery, nocebos can be fatal!
One example of the effect of a nocebo is contained in a study conducted in the 1960?s. Patients were given a glass of sugar water and told that this would make them vomit as part of a procedure to study their stomachs. Though there was nothing in the glass except sugar and water, 80 of those taking the drink did in fact throw up immediately afterwards.
Research into nocebos has been limited Michael Grabner Rangers Jersey , not least because with a study group, illnesses will be induced because of the power of suggestion. The Framingham Heart Study followed a group of women over several decades who believed they were part of a high risk group for heart attacks. The result of the study was that those women who believed they were in a high risk group had a fatality rate four times higher than those women in the same risk category but who were not told of this fact. Fear played a part in bringing about the condition precisely because they had been informed of the fact.
An Italian study into men and the taking of medication, found that those men who read the label on the medicine which had been doctored to warn of ?erectile dysfunction?, reported a far higher incidence of the condition. Reading the label and especially, reading about the side effects and what the medication is designed to prevent does in fact result in a far greater incidence of the conditions warned of than those who remain blissfully ignorant ? a case of ?Don?t Read the Label!?
The year was 1987 and Arnold Schwarzenegger was at the height of his popularity. This was when Predator was unleashed around the world. This film introduced us to one of the most frightening creatures ever put on film. There was great balance of horror Kevin Shattenkirk Rangers Jersey , comedy, action and suspense and made this one of Schwarzenegger's best films and gave us a creature that was hoped to be seen in other equally as great movies. Unfortunately this was not the case. We first got Predator 2, then Aliens vs. Predator and lastly Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem. All of these films paled in comparison to the original and really made the Predator something much less than it was intended to be. Now, 23 years after the first film, we finally get a film that reminds us why we liked the Predator in the first place.
This is the big change of this film from the original. The Predators have been collecting species to bring them to a planet to hunt them down. Why would they go and hunt on a different planet Chris Kreider Rangers Jersey , where it could be more difficult because of all the people that are there when they can just pick the ones that they want to hunt and bring them to their own hunting ground. The humans they have picked all have experience, either hunting, fighting or stalking others. They are the Predators of Earth. Who better to challenge than the hunters of Earth?
When the film starts, you almost get a sense of deja vu. The location is a jungle much like the one we see in the original film, but with different actors roaming around and wondering where they are. One person then meets another and both seem lost and unsure of how they ended up where they are. Then another person runs into the steadily growing group. They all begin talking and all realize that they have been brought to the jungle by someone or something Marc Staal Rangers Jersey , but they don't know who or why. They are all heavily armed and all seem to be elite and trained fighters. They all come to a cliff with a view of more of the jungle and realize they've been brought further than they ever could have realized. We see a vista with multiple moons or planets in the sky. They've been taken from Earth.
I personally would have liked to see not only humans, but other species from around the galaxy to join together or at least fight the Predators jointly. We saw glimpses of other races that had been captured, but didn't make it after being dropped from an aircraft. If only some of these had survived so that we could get a better sense of other races that the Predators like to make sport of. Maybe the filmmakers were saving that for a second film should this one do well. Either way, I really like the direction they took with this film and it makes me remember why I loved the first film to begin with.
Sure, this film isn't pe. Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Custom Jerseys Cheap Wholesale MLB Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Wholesale NHL Jerseys
