TRC 220: Plant Perception + Name That… + Tick Bites Leading to Red Meat Allergies

Another solid episode churned out by the skeptical podcast factory otherwise known as “The Reality Check”. After an awesome (and somewhat NSFW) parody by Pat “ODB” Roach, the show is lead off by Elan “don’t call me borophyll” Dubrofsky presenting a segment on whether or not plants can percieve and react to things like animals do. Pat “all over this description” Roach then hosts an all new skeptical game called “Name That…”. Darren “medium rare” McKee finishes off the show with an exploration into tick bites and whether they can cause an allergy to red meat. Adam “no responsibilities whatsoever” Gardner chimes in periodically throughout the show.

    Most ticks do not carry diseases, and most tick bites do not cause serious health problems. But it is important to remove a tick as soon as you find it. Removing the tick’s body helps you avoid diseases the tick may pass on during feeding. Removing the tick’s head helps prevent an infection in the skin where it bit you. See the Home Treatment section of this topic for the best way to remove a tick.;..;”

  2. Arthritis is not the type of disorder that emerges and then simply fades away again a short while later.
    People who have gallstones or obstruction of the bile passages should talk
    to their doctor before taking turmeric. Typically, however,
    warm rubbing products or oral sprays and pain healing is probably the most usual means of quick joint
    pain relief though they only present momentary treatment.
