Kim Kardashian's Kickin' Gluten-Free Bod!

Filed under: Etc.Miley CyrusKim KardashianDiets

Kim K Gluten Free Body

First thing's first — we should say that that there are reports that a gluten-free diet might not be as fab as everyone thinks… unless you truly have a gluten intolerance.

Having said that, Kim Kardashian's body is ROCKING here, whether or not it's due to a necessary gluten-free diet — which is exactly what she seems to be claiming of the photo!

This is actually an older pic of her from Instagram, but she shared it again on Friday with these words of wisdom along with it:

“Gluten free is the way to be…Oh Hi.”

A lot of celebs have been jumping on the gluten-free train, including Miley Cyrus, but she specifically said she has that pesky gluten allergy!

Like we said though: either way, you're lookin' fab, Kim!

Dang, gurl!!

Miley Cyrus Is NOT Anorexic!

Filed under: Miley CyrusFitnessHealthEating Disorders

Miley Food Allergy

Miley Cyrus wants it to be known that she is NOT anorexic.

So, why do many people think she is?? Apparently she has food allergies!

And, if you know anything about food allergies, not only can they wreak havoc on your system and cause you to lose weight, but they can also be pretty dangerous!

Here what the starlet said:

“For everyone calling me anorexic I have a gluten and lactose allergy. It’s not about weight it’s about health. Gluten is crapppp anyway!”

As long as you're healthy and happy, we don't care if you're thin or big!

The key word there is healthy, for sure. So if Miley says she's healthy but has just had to change her diet ways because of allergies — well then maybe some people should back off!

Hope all the changes are helping, Miley!

People Are Actually Allergic To Water!

Filed under: Health

water allergy

OMG! This sounds HORRIBLE!

Can U imagine being allergic to water? Because we can't, but unfortunately, some people actually are!

Dr. Alan Baptist, associate program director for allergy and immunology at the University of Michigan, faced the biggest challenge in his career when a young woman came to him to help treat migraine-like pain and reddish welts appearing on her skin when she came into contact with H20.

As it turns out, she was allergic to water!

Aquagenic urticaria is the term used to the describe the rare condition, which Baptist feels is largely undiagnosed because "if a person showers every day and has urticaria every day, their doctor would think they just have chronic urticaria."

Luckily for anybody who is allergic to water, at least they can drink it! The reaction only occurs when water comes in contact with the outer skin.

Still, overall, it's a pretty miserable situation for any human being. Not only can a sufferer not cool off with a dip in the pool, relax in a hot bath, or have fun with a water balloon fight, they have to weary of getting too passionate in the sack because saliva will irritate their skin too! Similarly, tears and sweat can trigger a reaction too!

Scientists can't explain how or why the allergy occurs, but Baptist was at least able to control the young woman's headaches and welts by mixing together a concoction of antihistamines, anti-cholinergic medications, and SSRI drugs.

Have U ever known anybody with a similar allergy? If so, how do they cope with it?

About 10% - 15% of the population has some level of pet allergies.

An estimated one-third of people who are allergic to cats still live with one anyway.

Pet allergies can be caused by a reaction to dander (dead skin cells and hair) or proteins in their hair, saliva and urine.

There are many ways to reduce the levels of pet allergens indoors so everyone can live a more comfortable, less itchy, life.

Lori Thomas Dickert from AllPetNews has some great tips

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!
