    Laughter is the Best Medicine: Raw and Green
    Laughter is the Best Medicine: Raw and Green/ by Dr Margaret Aranda /  Well, I remember the first time I tried sushi. I didn't know that green-facial-mask-fine-granular-looking stuff was made from horseradish (See Image 1). I ate a huge bite of it that killed every cold virus up my nose, into...

    #11 #10 I'm going to belch a good one just listening to you two! OK, so where are you hiding the rice saki? Can we all go to Happy Hour tomorrow night? Whoa. We're in a Hive; I forgot. So we're in a Happy Hive that never closes, right Dr @Ali Anani View more

So we're in a Happy Hive that never closes, right Dr @Ali Anani? No need to go to the restaurant "TGIF" for an after-office get-together; we just make out own honey laughter and I think that's just grand! The olfactory (smelling) system is so important; Odors are detected through some fifty million olfactory receptor cells that die and are replaced every sixty days. Sheesh! Close

    #9 #10 Oh I love the pathophysiology of the nose and palate in wasabi lol! Miracles in molecules but I wonder - does this stuff grow hair on your chest?

    Yes laughter is very healthy and in addition this buzz triggered in me how I should entertain raw food. This article was helpful as I began thought about this http://www.onegreenplanet.org/natural-health/top-mistakes-raw-food-newbies-make-and-what-to-do-instead/

    I think Wasabi is vile. I'm not certain it would have even stayed in my mouth. Hence, I dislike horseradish. I do however, like spicy food when done right. Curry I like, and there are a jillion peppers. Some of course this white boy just can't handle. I also discovered that the juice of a jalapeno and the eye are not a good mix. I also heard from a friend years ago, that after working with peppers (pre-gloves days) in a kitchen, he went to the bathroom. He finished, washed his hands, went back to work. He noticed a growing discomfort in his groin. That grew to rather intense discomfort. Back to the bathroom to soap and water the effected part. No change. So with tears in his eyes, he asked a head chef. The head chef, thinking it was from eating, said, "Eat bread. It breaks down the oil." My friend was a bit nonplussed, but got creative, and wrapped himself in slices of bread. Problem solved. Was it placebo? We didn't care. We were too busy laughing.

    You are right, it is the molecule that caracterize mustard and is so strong!!! Yes, when I say new sensations I mean that its effect in your nose makes you discover a "new dimension". Mustard gas used in belic actions contains this derivate, just think that!!!#10

    #9 @Joaquim Vives, I had to look up Allyl iso-thyo-cynate, and it's a smelly compound lol? I'm not trying to be rude but how did this lead to discovering new sensations? Becuase, that is so repugnant? If so, that's true!

    Lisa, remember the name of your favorite molecule, the one that made you discovered those new sensations in your nose and brine... Allyl iso-thyo-cyanate (sorry for the orthography because it is certainly wrong...).

    #3 #4 It's good to see that tears can also come from not just unions or painful bunions, but from foods good for the body and soul! "No curry, no hurry, no worry." Great advice ~ and I'm glad we can see, @Dr Ali Anani, your spice for life continues. You inspired an artwork that I did today, and I'll cc you on that Buzz. Great day!

    #5 Never stopped eating curry @Lisa Gallagher. But hurry and worry- I dispensed with by changing my attitudes.

    #4 @Ali Anani, did you take curry or have to stay away from the hot curry? Glad your ulcer disappeared!

    No curry, no hurry, no worry my MD told me having suffered from a mild stomach ulcer. No hurry and no worry I managed. But no hot curry I failed. Ulcer disappeared shortly afterwards. Let tears flow from a nice and healthy dish. Thank you @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD View more

    ha ha!!! Blake Shelton and Jimmy Kimmel make a great team. I would have loved to be sitting there with them.. I probably would have been doing some knee slapping while laughing. I wonder how much rice wine they really had LOL. Sea Urchin-gonads, ewe, but I would try!! Laughter is so healthy and I wish more people weren't afraid to just let down their hair and have some fun. Who says we have to act like 'adults' ALL the time? Thanks for posting this @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD

    #1 Oh! @Froilán Pérez! You remind me that my dear Father told me that he remembered being a toddler, eating hot with tears pouring down his cheeks from the sting! And he said he didn't care! He just kept on eating and eating and eating! ~he just loved hot sauce! Thank you for your great story! It sparked a great memory...

    I had a similar experience in a Mexican restaurant when I was about 8 years old.I poured tobasco like a madman on a dish, and did not listen to my parents advice. Of course, they made me finish the taco (or whatever it was after in was dripping in tobasco). Years later, when I first encountered sushi, I listened to the warnings about Wasabi and carefully tried it. I love it, but try not to use to much (Gari, on the other hand, I devour)
