Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more

Every day, it has been estimated, between one and five of your cells turns cancerous and your immune system captures and kills them. Think of that

The human body is often likened to a high-performance machine. 

But it is so much more than that. It works 24 hours a day for decades without (for the most part) needing regular servicing or the installation of spare parts. 

It runs on water and a few organic compounds, is soft and rather lovely, reproduces itself with enthusiasm, makes jokes, feels affection and appreciates a red sunset.

How many machines do you know that can do any of that? There is no question about it. You are truly a wonder.

An ache, a twinge of indigestion, the odd bruise or pimple is about all that in the normal course of things announces our imperfectability.

There are thousands of things that can kill us – slightly more than 8,000, according to the World Health Organisation – and we escape every one of them but one. For most of us, that’s not a bad deal. 

‘Feel this,’ the doctor is saying to me. We are in the dissecting room at the University of Nottingham Medical School and Dr Ben Ollivere is directing my attention to a piece of detached tubing in the upper chest of a male body.

I am struck by a powerful thought. In the dissecting room, the human body is no longer a wondrous piece of precision engineering. It’s meat.

Ben instructs me to stick my gloved finger into the interior of the tube and feel it. It is stiff, like uncooked pasta.

I have no idea what it is. ‘The aorta,’ Ben says, with what seems like pride.

I am frankly amazed. ‘So that’s the heart?’ I say, indicating the shapeless lump beside it.

A couple of dozen times a week, well over 1,000 times a year, you get the most dreaded disease of our age, and each time your body saves you. Our bodies are a universe of 37.2 trillion cells operating in more or less perfect concert more or less all the time

Yes, my work brings daily stress and this was the last straw for me ... My immunity became weak and this even affected my sexual abilities. I chose this option - https://trustmeds.com.au/how-to-buy-viagra-online/ It was Viagra that allowed me to strengthen my general health and calmed my nerves. There is no better medicine than good sex. Although I also recognize the benefits of herbal treatments.
