THE 26 STAGES OF DEATH

 anomalies unlimited.com

    Moment of Death:
    1} The heart stops
    2} The skin gets tight and grey in color
    3} All the muscles relax
    4} The bladder and bowels empty
    . . . .4a - Men will get an erection. No, I don't know when, exactly. I really didn't feel like calling up the local mortuary and asking this. And there's people on my mailing list I could have asked, I bet, but it's kind of weird popping up and asking that. No pun intended. I'm not sure my parents know what erections are, so I can't ask them. I did read that this was one of the reasons hangings were so well attended by women, back in the old.days. Big Laffs, seeing the Hung, hung.
    5} The body's temperature will typically drop 1.5 degrees F. per hour unless outside environment is a factor. The liver is the organ that stays warmest the longest, and this temperature is used to establish time of death if the body is found within that time frame.

    After 30 minutes:
    6} The skin gets purple and waxy
    7} The lips, finger- and toe nails fade to a pale color or turn white as the blood leaves.
    8} Blood pools at the lowest parts of the body leaving a dark purple-black stain called lividity
    9} The hands and feet turn blue
    10} The eyes start to sink into the skull

    After 4 hours:
    11} Rigor mortis starts to set in
    12} The purpling of the skin and pooling of blood continue
    13} Rigor Mortis begins to tighten the muscles for about another 24 hours, then will reverse and the body will return to a limp state.

    After 12 hours:
    14} The body is in full rigor mortis.

    After 24 hours:
    15} The body is now the temperature of the surrounding environment
    16} In males, the semen dies
    17} The head and neck are now a greenish-blue color
    18} The greenish-blue color continues to spread to the rest of the body
    19} There is the strong smell of rotting meat
    20} The face of the person is essentially no longer recognizable

    After 3 days:
    21} The gases in the body tissues form large blisters on the skin
    22} The whole body begins to bloat and swell grotesquely. This process is speeded up if victim is in a hot environment, or in water
    23} Fluids leak from the mouth, nose, eyes, ears and rectum and urinary opening

    After 3 weeks:
    24} The skin, hair, and nails are so loose they can be easily pulled off the corpse
    25} The skin cracks and bursts open in many places because of the pressure of Internal gases and the breakdown of the skin itself
    26} Decomposition will continue until body is nothing but skeletal remains, which can take as little as a month in hot climates and two months in cold climates. The teeth are often the only thing left, years and centuries later, because tooth enamel is the strongest substance in the body. The jawbone is the densest, so that usually will also remain. So don't forget - brush regularly and floss only if you're really bored.

WHAT CAUSES STOMACH CANCER

What Causes Stomach Cancer?

Scientists don’t know exactly what makes cancer cells start growing in the stomach. But they do know a few things that can raise your risk for the disease. One of them is infection with a common bacteria, H. pylori, which causes ulcers. Inflammation in your gut called gastritis, long-lasting anemia, and growths in your stomach called polyps also can make you more likely to get cancer.

Other things that seem to play a role in raising the risk include:

    Smoking
    Being overweight or obese
    A diet high in smoked, pickled, or salty foods
    Stomach surgery for an ulcer
    Type-A blood
    Epstein-Barr virus infection
    Certain genes
    Working in coal, metal, timber, or rubber industries
    Exposure to asbestos

Symptoms
    Early on, stomach cancer may cause:
    Indigestion
    Feeling bloated after you eat a meal
    Heartburn
    Slight nausea
    Loss of appetite

Just having indigestion or heartburn after a meal doesn’t mean you have cancer. But if you feel these symptoms a lot, talk to your doctor. He can see if you have other risk factors and test you to look for any problems.

As stomach tumors grow, you may have more serious symptoms, such as:

    Stomach pain
    Blood in your stool
    Vomiting
    Weight loss for no reason
    Trouble swallowing
    Yellowish eyes or skin
    Swelling in your stomach
    Constipation or diarrhea
    Weakness or feeling tired
    Heartburn

Getting a Diagnosis

Your doctor will give you a physical exam. He'll also ask about your medical history to see if you have any risk factors for stomach cancer or any family members who’ve had it. Then, he might give you some tests, including:

    Blood tests to look for signs of cancer in your body.

    Upper endoscopy. Your doctor will put a thin, flexible tube with a small camera down your throat to look into your stomach.

    Upper GI series test. You’ll drink a chalky liquid with a substance called barium. The fluid coats your stomach and makes it show up more clearly on X-rays.

    CT scan . This is a powerful X-ray that makes detailed pictures of the inside of your body.

    Biopsy . Your doctor takes a small piece of tissue from your stomach to look at under a microscope for signs of cancer cells. He might do this during an endoscopy.

EFFECTS OF SLAPPING THE EAR

This was the article I found when I Googled the efects of slapping the ear

Best Answer:  First. A sudden increase in pressure in your ear can cause serious hearing loss. It can puncture (rupture) your ear drum. This is a serious problem that should be taken care of if the pain persists. Second. Your bf should be your ex-bf for several reasons a) He hits you which shows he does not respect you. b) He hit you which if he has done it once he will do it again c) He hit you that is assault and you can not trust someone who assaults you. I do not think your "head" was damaged however I hope that he slapped some common sense into you that you are not going to be his punching bag in the future. I know that odds are you two will stay together and odds are that this will reoccur until you wise up. Sorry for your fight hope that I helped wish and pray for the best for you....

1. Use allergy-proof covers on pillows and mattresses.
Wash bedding weekly in hot water (above 130 degrees F) to get rid of dust mites and use a dehumidifier to reduce excess moisture and help prevent mold in your home.
2. Do not allow pets in bedrooms or on furniture.
3. Remove carpets and stuffed toys from bedrooms.
If carpeting cannot be removed, vacuum at least twice a week with a cleaner equipped with a HEPA air filter. Ask your doctor about which cleaning products are best to use.
4. Fix leaky faucets.
Mold is a common asthma trigger. To reduce mold in your home, remove household plants and keep bathrooms clean and dry by opening a window or using a bathroom fan during showers or baths.
5. Avoid areas where people smoke.
Breathing smoke - even secondhand smoke and smoke on clothing, furniture or drapes - can trigger an asthma attack. Be sure to ask for a smoke-free hotel room when traveling.
6. Avoid harsh cleaning products and chemicals.
Fumes from household cleaners can trigger asthma. Avoid inhaling fumes at home and prevent exposure away from home as much as possible.
7. Reduce stress.Intense emotions and worry often worsen asthma symptoms so take steps to relieve stress in your life. Make time for things you enjoy doing - and for relaxation.
8. Pay attention to air quality. Extremely hot and humid weather and poor air quality can exacerbate asthma symptoms for many people. Limit outdoor activity when these conditions exist or a pollution alert has been issued.
9. Exercise indoors. Physical activity is important - even for people with asthma. Reduce the risk for exercise-induced asthma attacks by working out inside on very cold or very warm days. Talk to your doctor about asthma and exercise.

REASONS FOR VITAMIN D DEFICIENCY

For a number of reasons, many people aren’t getting enough vitamin D to stay healthy. This is called vitamin D deficiency. You may not get enough vitamin D if:

    You don’t get enough sunlight. Your body is usually able to get all the vitamin D it needs if you regularly expose enough bare skin to the sun. However, many people don’t get enough sunlight because they spend a lot of time inside and because they use sunscreen. It’s also difficult for some people to get enough vitamin D from the sun during the winter.
    You don’t take supplements. It’s very difficult to get enough vitamin D from the foods you eat alone.
    Your body needs more vitamin D than usual, for example if you’re obese or pregnant.

Are certain people more likely to have vitamin D deficiency?

There are some groups of people that are more likely to have vitamin D deficiency. The following people are more likely to be lacking in vitamin D:

    People with darker skin. The darker your skin the more sun you need to get the same amount of vitamin D as a fair-skinned person. For this reason, if you’re Black, you’re much more likely to have vitamin D deficiency that someone who is White.
    People who spend a lot of time indoors during the day. For example, if you’re housebound, work nights or are in hospital for a long time.
    People who cover their skin all of the time. For example, if you wear sunscreen or if your skin is covered with clothes.
    People that live in the North of the United States or Canada. This is because there are fewer hours of overhead sunlight the further away you are from the equator.
    Older people have thinner skin than younger people and this may mean that they can’t produce as much vitamin D.
    Infants that are breastfed and aren’t given a vitamin D supplement. If you’re feeding your baby on breast milk alone, and you don’t give your baby a vitamin D supplement or take a supplement yourself, your baby is more likely to be deficient in vitamin D.
