Peanuts Protected By Law

Peanuts

Peanuts have more rights than some living creatures.

Despite the Department of Public Transportations murmurings of a possible peanut ban on airplanes to avoid bothering those with severe allergic reactions, a 12-year-old law blocks the agency from tampering with peanut policy without more scientific study.

The Department of Public Transportation said in a statement:

"The Department is prohibited by law from restricting the serving of peanuts aboard aircraft unless a peer-reviewed study determines that serving of peanuts causes severe reactions among airline passengers. There has been no such peer-reviewed study, so we declined to take action at this time."

The government proposed the ban last June and asked the public to give their opinions on the possible ban on the Public Transportation's website.

Many peanut allergy sufferers supported the ban, but the government decided to honor the existing law and has put any peanut objections on the back burner for now.

Fortunately for those suffering from severe peanut allergies, some carriers have developed their own policies to protect allergic passengers.

Some flights no longer serve peanuts and even create peanut-free buffer zones, so if you're worried about an allergic reaction, make sure to do the proper research before hopping on your next flight!

Dutch Scientists Say Men May Be Allergic To Their Own Semen

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueHealthSex

Men allergic to semen

That's right…we had the same reaction. Let's just say it together.

What…the…hell!?!?!

There's a mysterious phenomenon in which some men come down with a flu-like illness immediately after having an orgasm and Dutch scientists are saying these men may be allergic to their own semen.

If that's true, that's a pretty unfortunate allergy.

The condition is known as post-orgasmic illness sydrome, or POIS and believe it or not, has been on scientists' radars for nearly 10 years

It's not commonly known by patients or doctors because experts suspect many men who experience the post-ejaculate sickness don't come forward and tell their doctor about it out of embarrassment.

Embarrassment? More like, confusion!

Who would ever guess they are allergic to their own semen?

In a study at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, thirty-three men agreed to undergo a skin-prick (no pun intended) allergy test using a diluted form of their own semen and a whopping 88 percent had a reaction indicating an allergic reaction!

Symptoms of POIS include fever, runny nose, extreme fatigue and burning eyes that come on straight after climax and can last up to a week.

This is shocking to say the least, but at least it will encourage men to last longer and maybe learn the art of tantric sex.
