Woman Insists ‘Sperm Smoothies’ Have Incredible Health Benefits

tracy-kiss

(PCM) Health and fitness blogger, 29-year old Tracy Kiss, has made the bold claim that consuming a “sperm smoothie” each day has some truly amazing heath benefits. She is touting the drink as new miracle health product that is both all natural (of course) and vegan friendly.

It seems that Kiss is also a strong advocate for other benefits of semen other than just in smoothies. She has also sung the praises of the seman facial (and no, it’s not what you are probably picturing right now).  She claims that both the semen facial and sperm smoothie are non-sexual and she has a special donor who is tested for STD’s to be sure she is not putting her body at risk.

We love that she uses the word “harvested” to describe how a friend donates a tub full of semen for both the smoothies and the facials to her home three times a week. That’s definitely one heck of a good friend!

Kiss claims that to make the sperm smoothies she mixes the donated semen with fruit, seeds, and either coconut or almond milk. She also has no issue drinking just the plain semen on it’s own saying that it has properties that ward off the flu. She feels it gives her amazing amounts of energy and boosts her mood as well.

When speaking with Vice about her somewhat odd ingredient choices, Kiss reveals “In relationships, you put fingers in holes, you taste things, and you don’t see it as cringeworthy. But when you take away the passion and say it’s scientific, people don’t like it.”

Doctors are refuting Kiss’s claim saying there are no health benefits associated with consuming semen, but hey, to each their own!

What Happens When You Consume Too Many Energy Drinks?

energy-drink

(PCM) An eye-opening article was recently featured on Gizmodo.com about just what can happen to your body if you consume too many energy drinks on regular basis. A 50-year old male construction worker openly admitted to consuming around four to five energy drinks every day for a period of three weeks as a way to boost his energy level on the job. The rest of the man’s diet remained the same. He eventually ended up at the emergency room with dark colored urine, abdominal pains and jaundiced skin.

The culprit? Consuming too many energy drinks in a short time period gave his man a life-threatening case of hepatitis. He initially believed he had come down with a case of the flu, however when a biopsy was done on his liver it tested positive for hepatitis C. The doctors believe that the hepatitis C was brought on by all of the Vitamin B3, also known as niacin, that the man was consuming on daily basis. It seems that each energy drink contains about 40mg of niacin per serving.

Doctor’s hope that this man’s case will heed warning to other energy drink enthusiasts, as they said in their report “As the energy drink market continues to rapidly expand, consumers should be aware of the potential risks of their various ingredients. Vitamins and nutrients, such as niacin are present in quantities that greatly exceed the recommended daily intake, lending to their high risk for harmful accumulation and toxicity.”

It is not hard to believe that consuming too many energy drinks can lead to some pretty significant health issues. In this particular case the man is fully recovered, however in the future others many not end up some lucky!

Tokyo Woman Farts During Surgery And Catches Fire

fart-fire

(PCM) A Tokyo woman who was undergoing an operation on her cervix at the Tokyo Medical University Hospital in Shinjuku Ward when she passed gas on the operating table and subsequently caught herself on fire.

If you are wondering just how something like this happened, it seems that a surgical laser that was being used during the operation created enough heat to ignite the woman’s fart and start a fire. The woman suffered serious burns on the lower half of her body including her waist and legs when the fire caused the surgical drape to ignite as well.

The hospital claims that all of their equipment was in proper working order and no other flammable materials were present in the operating room, so therefore the conclusion can safely be drawn that the fart was definitely to blame.  Scary stuff!

Church’s ‘Miracle’ Cure For Autism And Other Conditions Actually Contains A Very Dangerous Chemical

(PCM) A self-proclaimed non-religious church known as the Genesis II Church Of Health and Healing have been promoting the use of a substance known as the Miracle Mineral Solution, or MMS for short, as a way to cure individuals, including children, of a variety of aliments such as autism, cancer, and HIV to name a few. The MMS has been available for purchase online through the Genesis Church for several years now, however new research into the so-called “miracle cures” contents reveals just how dangerous this product can be to the health of you and your loved ones.

Experts who looked into the MMS claim that the solution actually contains agents common in many industrial bleach solutions and can be incredibly harmful if ingested. The side effects from ingestion can include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The church claims that those side effects are a result of the cure working it’s magic, but researchers claims this is baloney and this product should never be ingested. The church suggests that users either drink the solution or administer it via enema.

The MMS was found to contain sodium chlorite which is commonly used as a bleaching agent and disinfectant. The health officials warn that the use of this particular product on children, especially those diagnosed with autism is basically a form of torture, as these children can’t always effectively communicate when they are in any type of pain. Health officials urge anyone who has used MMS to contact a health care professional immediately to prevent any long term health issues.

Study Reveals That ‘Netflix and Chill’ May Actually Help Strengthen Relationships

netflix-chill

(PCM) We have some fantastic news for couples out there who enjoy nothing more than putting plans to the side and snuggling on the sofa to binge watch Netflix and “chill” all weekend!  A new study that was  published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships has revealed that couples who spend time together binge watching various TV shows and mores are actually strengthening their relationships in the process.

The study found that couples who bond together over TV shows, movies or reading books begin to feel more intimate with one another and their relationship gains a new level of confidence and of course what couple wouldn’t benefit from a bit of extra cuddle time with one another as well! The lead author on the study Sarah Gomillion, PhD, went on to explain that it has been known for quite some time that couples who have mutual friends create a stronger bond, however this new study further reveals that perhaps fictional characters in a TV show, book or movie can act in just the same way.  Any die-hard fan of those particular mediums can attest to just how attached we find ourselves to certain characters and we then of course share that emotional attachment with our partners.

Binge-watching Netflix used to be associated with being lonely or depressed, but now research has found that it has some important social benefits, as it is far less isolating than it used to be, unless of course the two of you can’t decide what to watch. That then becomes a new issue all its’ own!

Study Reveals 1 in 4 Young Women Have Mental Health Issues And Social Media Is To Blame

mental-health1

(PCM) An eye-opening new study has revealed that 1 in 4 young women are currently suffering from various mental health problems and they are placing the blame on an obsession with social media. Young women who are between the ages of 16 and 24 are at the highest risk for mental health issues, as the report from the UK’s National Health Service (NHS), found that 26% of participants in the study that fall into that particular age range suffer from some form of anxiety or depression.

The research showed that the young women were highly affected by the imagery found on their various social media accounts and the overall fact that we are in a “selfie” obsessed culture. There is more pressure on young women (and men as well) to be looking their very best at all times and there is a constant comparison going on between their own lives and the lives of others that they see played out on social media each and every day. This can also lead to serious issues regarding body image, self-worth, cyber-bullying and more.

The NHS last did a similar study back in 2007, when social media was still on the rise, but a rather new concept. At that time we were certainly not as obsessed with it as we are today and the number of young women suffering from mental health issues was only at 21%, so it is definitely on the rise. The age range of young women between the ages of 16 and 24 currently are of special concern to mental health researchers, as they are the first generation to grow up completely immersed in social media, whereas individuals who are a bit older can remember a time when we were not so dependent or concerns with these types of things.

So, please be sure to keep in mind that a lot of what is seen on social media is an altered version of reality and majority of the time the type of “perfection” that is seen via social media does not even truly exist. Take some time and unplug for a bit as it is a bit scary that our obsession with social media is actually beginning to make us physically sick.
