Eye irritation: what’s causing it?
Definition

Eye irritation is the response produced by the eyes when they are in contact with an irritant: the eyes become red and/or watery. Sometimes they also have a burning or stinging sensation.

Symptoms

People with ocular irritation complain of tiredness and ocular discomfort that manifests itself with conjunctival redness, lachrymation, blurred vision and stinging, which frequently generates the need to rub the eyes or blink frequently to relieve it.

Coping with Asbestos Siding

Do you have Asbestos Siding in your home?

A Brief History of Asbestos

Without diving too deep into the history of asbestos, we should touch on a few key points. This will help you know if you have to worry about the carcinogenic material, or if it isn’t going to be present in your house.

Most people think that this mineral is a 20th-century discovery. In fact, it dates back much further than that. The material was actually being used as far back as 4000 BC in ancient Egypt. And even the discovery that it was harmful has been known for quite some time. In the first century Pliny, the Elder wrote about how slaves that worked closely with the substance would get sick and die prematurely.

Fast forward to the 20th century when the use of asbestos was really starting to pick up. People wanted to have insulated houses, and this mineral did a remarkably good job. It was strong, fire resistant, insulated well and was incredibly versatile. It also caused cancer.

Hair Transplant Costs and Expenses

There are many products available in the market today that hold the promise of re-growing hair and treating male pattern baldness. These products include everything from creams and pills to medications such as Rogaine. Most of these “all natural” treatments though are actually more damaging to your body than an actual hair transplant. Especially when considering all the new technology in the market today.

Hair Transplant Costs and Expenses

Can Hair Transplant Surgery Leave Scars?

Does Hair Transplant Surgery Leave Scars?
The technique used to perform the hair transplant will determine whether or not scars remain after the procedure. In the treatments with the FUE and FUSS techniques, the results are very natural and differ from each other in the way in which the follicular units are extracted from the donor area. In both cases, local anesthesia is used and they do not require hospitalization or cause any pain.

Asbestos Popcorn Ceilings: Are they Safe?

So the big question, Asbestos Popcorn ceilings: Are they safe? Back in the 1950’s and 1980’s there was a special type of ceiling that was in the form of a spray on texture type; popcorn ceiling. This style made it easy for contractors to hide unwanted blemishes quickly. Sadly, during this time span there was a tremendous demand for the use of this asbestos related product in the United States. About 1 and 10 percent of “popcorn ceilings,” “stucco ceiling”, “cottage-cheese ceiling,” and another populars name for this textured ceiling, generally had asbestos. Asbestos is dangerous and can cause cancer in which homeowners breathe in without knowing until years later are diagnosed with major health risks that could have been prevented.

If you are worried about “cottage cheese” ceilings in your residential home, I highly recommend you to purchase a test kit and or hire an asbestos abatement professional. If you purchase a test kit, you will have to gather a sample of the ceiling and mail i..
