Immune System
« on: January 14, 2021, 10:23:09 AM »
I discovered two things yesterday.

1. Visiting a forest can induce a significant increase in both the number and activity of natural killer cells, one of the ways our body fights off cancer. And the effects can last up to thirty days.

2. Using paracetamol or other medication to reduce the fever of flu can increase your chances of dying from it by up to 5%.

1)  Which forest?

2)  What "other medication"?
I apologise, in advance.

What if a person were to accidently nibble the bark off a willow tree?
People will come from strange lands to hear me speak my words of wisdom. They will ask me the secret of life and I will tell them. Then maybe I'll finish off with a song. The Nomad
