So this is my six year old cousin named baha. He was diagnosed with leukemia about a month or so ago. He’s perfect in every way. He’s always wearing a hat because he says he misses his hair and doesn’t want to be as bald as my grandpa. He stays at st Jude’s hospital in Tampa. All the nurses love him so much because he tells them that he’s fine and doesn’t need them. His 7th birthday is soon, and I promised him I’d get this to 1k notes but I don’t know if I can..If you could maybe reblog this and show some sort of affection? I know it’s not quality bc I’m not there with him but I promise it wouldn’t ruin your blog.
omfg who wouldn’t reblog this? he’s so cute
This is the second one I’ve gotten of these today! Why do people keep sending them to me. But guys can you please reblog this. I don’t have that many followers so it will be hard to get to this number. But can you all please help I love my followers and I don’t want them to do anything at all to harm themselves.
Must be Following me
I will do it tomorrow when i i wake up!
Followers, feel free to skip.
Well firstly, I’m an Independent. I don’t affiliate myself with the Republican party or the Democratic party. For me, it’s more about the person and if we share the same views rather than sticking with one party. I was raised Republican, so I tend to go that way…
Thanks for your Post.. honest, truthful & just genuine. Everyone is blinded by Obama’s charismatic persona and how good his words sound, in theory. The theory has failed to match reality.
I woke up to my alarm at 7am and I am now having my morning smoke, coffee and lurk. Last night I bought soy milk and I have it in my coffee now. It actually tastes really bad. Does anyone know what sort of product I could use that will make it taste like normal milk but is dairy free? Help me ouuut guys!
Hey! Try Coconut milk by so coconut…it doesnt have much of a flavor at all so it blends into any drink well!

If you talk to anyone who has recently switched, or is considering a switch, to a plant-based diet, more often than not, they claim that cheese is their weakness. So why is this? After all, doesn’t cheese smell like dirty socks?
The answer is casomorphins—protein fragments, derived from the digestion of the milk protein, Casein. The distinguishing characteristic of casomorphins is that they have an opioid effect. Yup. Opioids are among the world’s oldest known drugs. Dependence can develop with ongoing administration, leading to withdrawal syndromes with abrupt discontinuation. Opioids are well known for their ability to produce a feeling of euphoria, motivating some to recreationally use opioids. But if it’s already a huge part of our diets in America, so who will actually have to experience the uncomfy withdrawl? You guessed it. Those who try to kick dairy to the curb.
Casein is a hot topic for vegans and plant-based eaters because it can be found deceptively listed in the ingredients of certain dairy-free and vegan cheeses. You may be familiar with it in that regard, but the addicting qualities of Casein are somewhat unknown. As Casein breaks down in the stomach producing the peptide, casomorphin (an opioid), it acts as a histamine releaser, which is also why so many people are allergic to dairy products; An estimated 70% of the population worldwide!
Ok, back to the opioid effect. It takes 10lbs of milk to make 1 lb of cheese. As milk is turned into cheese, most of its water is removed leaving behind concentrated casein and fat. So, concentrated dairy products, like cheese, have especially high levels of opiates, even morphine.
At this point you might be wondering what the evolutionary basis might be for these opiates to be in a mammal’s milk. Dr. Neal Barnard, founder and president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), explains that, “It appears that the opiates from mother’s milk produce a calming effect on the infant and, in fact, may be responsible for a good measure of the mother-infant bond. No, it’s not all lullabies and cooing. Psychological bonds always have a physical underpinning. Like it or not, mother’s milk has a drug-like effect on the baby’s brain that ensures that the baby will bond with Mom and continue to nurse and get the nutrients all babies need. Like heroin or codeine, casomorphins slow intestinal movements and have a decided antidiarrheal effect. The opiate effect may be why adults often find that cheese can be constipating, just as opiate painkillers are.”
The European Food Safety Agency, in response to a number of studies and public health concern, did a scientific literature review in 2009 to assess the potential health impact of casomorphins and similar biologically active peptides. Much of the review centers addressing the overarching question (although several avenues were explored in detail): Do casomorphins have potentially deleterious health effects? The concern of course stemming from the addictive capacity of opioid drugs.
Explains both how my nearly 2 year old infant is obsessed with breastmilk and how the thought og a cheesy pizza leaves me nearly in tears. Crazy.
