Since perjalanan ke rumah terbuka yang ke 9 untuk harini mengambil masa 1 jam 30 min, dan saya agak bosan, im thinking to buat threads about my skin punya journey dari dulu and now. Kemain kan aku, journey tau! 😂
Macam mana tiba tiba terasa nak buat journey ni, haaa Ceritanya, tadi nak pilih gambar kat gallery Nak upload raya ootd day 5 la kononya, tiba tiba ter scroll gambar hodoh aku dulu. Buruk sial aku. Takda la cakap skrg dah lawa, tapi boleh la pandang, selera la sikit. 😂
300 RT, I share My skin Care routine Dari A-Z step by step! ☺️
Some sauropod dinosaurs had sensory afferent neurons over 50m in length. So if a sauropod accidentally touched a hot stove with its tail, it would take the brain over 25 seconds to realise it was burning itself (assuming C fibre conducting at 2 m/s). app.pan.pl/archive/publis…#pain
Presumably evolution figured out a way of being quicker than this - perhaps by using fast myelinated A fibres or very fat C fibres for nociception instead.
But the point stands that throughout evolution, sensory afferents have had to increase & shrink their length by many orders of magnitude, while still staying quick enough to actually trigger a reflex or pain percept in a useful enough time frame for an organism to get away safely
It’s about time we take a more humanistic approach to #pain and #addiction. Policies to mandate dose reductions without risk\benefit assessments are not evidence based and reflect policy makers “attempts to do something”. That something can harm. healthaffairs.org/do/10.1377/hbl…
Doctors are no longer a driving part of the #OpioidHysteria. They never really were. Why why why are we still getting these stories instead of what’s really going on? Alt facts much? How very Trumpian. News media needs to take a good look in the mirror & start facing the truth.
