Lactose Intolerance: What is it?

Imagine if you can’t drink milk, eat yogurt, cheese, ice cream, chocolate, cake, and more! Now wouldn’t that be sad? 

Ice, Ice Cream, Ice Cream Flavors

Well, some people aren’t able to eat or drink those foods. Those people are lactose intolerant, which means they can’t eat anything with lactose, which is in most dairy products.

Lactose intolerance is a disorder in which you cannot eat anything with lactose, because the person with lactose intolerance does not make enough of the enzyme lactase that is necessary for digesting lactose.

Symptoms

Lactose intolerance causes different symptoms that include

  • diarrhea
  • bloating
  • nausea
  • abdominal pain
  • farting
Abdominal Pain, Pain, Appendicitis, Bloating

How to avoid the symptoms

Don’t eat/drink too much food/drink with lactose. When you eat/drink food/drink with lactose, eat or drink something without lactose with it. Or try to look for a lactose-free version of that food or drink.

How to know if you are lactose intolerant

Don’t eat/drink anything with lactose for a few days, and then drink a few glasses of milk. If the symptoms occur, then you might be lactose intolerant. Or better yet, go to a doctor and ask for a lactose intolerance test.

Lactose Intolerance isn’t bad

Lactose Intolerance isn’t bad.

It just means you can’t eat anything with lactose without the symptoms occurring. But you CAN look for a lactose free version, like I said a while ago.

Beautiful or Bloodthirsty?

These plants that I will show you are quite BEAUTIFUL,

but BEWARE!

They are POISONOUS as well.

The Deadly Nightshade

Deadly Nightshade, or atropa belladonna, is a very poisonous plant. The leafage and berries are extremely deadly when consumed. The leaves are usually green or purple, and the berries black or green. They are very dangerous to children because they look rather tempting and have a luscious taste. However, oxen and rabbits can eat this without dying.

The Rosary Pea

Rosary pea, or abrus precatorius, is a suicidal plant that is part of the bean family. Just one seed can kill both adults and kids. These are made as native jewelry, and the most common one is the red one with a black eye, but there are also different colors.

Wolfsbane

Wolfsbane, or aconitum napellus, is also a very fatal plant. It was used on arrows to kill wolves.  Dark purple is the usual color of the plant. Sometimes it is also red-purple. It can also be a pale lavender.

Midnight Ruffles

Helleborus, or Midnight Ruffles. This plant is used for decorative purposes. Helleborus have many different colors, like green to purple, and the hybrids can be slate grey to yellow to white to green. My favorite is the near black Midnight Ruffles hybrid (see picture above).

All helleborus plants and parts are toxic, despite their beautiful colors. The poison outside the plant will cause inflammation and prickling sensations. Eating helleborus will cause pain in the mouth, vomiting, and diarrhea. Eating significant amounts is fatal.

Even though these plants are pretty, they are very dangerous as well. God our Father made these plants like this for special purposes, like to make sure animals and humans don’t eat them. These plants are also very beautiful because every plant God makes is beautiful, even the rafflesia.

Introverts. What are introverts and is it bad to be introverted?

Let’s learn more about them.

Introverts

Introverts get easily drained when talking to a lot of people. They get energy by being alone. They also work better alone. They prefer isolated activities like gardening, drawing, or reading. 

They don’t really hate talking to people. They just get drained by interacting. They also don’t need to be “normal”. They were probably born like that, and they should embrace who they are. Introverts also don’t like being in the spotlight. They don’t like performing with large groups. Introverts need one or two close friends to talk to, since they get easily drained when talking to a lot of friends.

Talking.

What is talking? Talking helps us communicate. It also helps us to share our feelings. The tone of our voice can tell other people if we are feeling sad, happy, mad, or other feelings. But sometimes people can misunderstand. They can think that you are mad.

How?

By the tone of your voice and the words that we say. Like, for example, if you talk to someone in a sarcastic or angry tone, they might think that you are mad at them. So we have to watch the tone of our voices. We also have to watch the words that we say. If you are pretending to be mad at someone they will think that you are angry. Like if you say bad words at them they will think that you are furious.

So please watch your words and tone.
