The waiter walks over and sets a glass of ice-water on the table.
“Ew,” my mom says when he walks away. “I don’t like it when restaurants put lemons in your drink.”
For years she’s claimed that lemon wedges have tons of bacteria – picked up because of how much they are handled by bare human hands – and this YouTube video seems to prove she’s right, reporting that over 77% of lemon wedges in drinks tested positive for disease causing bacteria.
My husband has an issue with restaurants that place the silverware directly on the table instead of on a napkin or tablecloth. When I tell him the tables are washed, he says, “Yeah, but have you seen those ratty rags they use?”
What a bunch of germaphobes!
Except I have my issues too. I don’t like touching menus. I especially can’t stand it when a waiter places a menu down on top of my plate. I mean really, when are menus cleaned?
I’m totally of the belief that exposure to bad bacteria can build my immune system. And, logically, I know that menus are only one of many places I’m coming across a boatload of germs. But still, menus freak me out.
Do you have any quirky things you’re a germ-freak about?
When it comes to generic medications, most people usually view them as low grade alternatives that are intended only for the impoverished. Sadly, this is somewhat true for a lot of generic medications as some manufacturers try to cut cost on certain aspects of their generic products so as to increase or better their profits. However, this is not always the case with generic medications. Personally, when it comes to generic medicines, I try to see if the effect of the drug is visible or not, even if the result is only noticeable after a few months. Take for instance finasteride generic, the generic form of the hair loss treatment drug Propecia.
Finasteride generic is actually the best alternative to the drug Propecia for those who are looking to save money. Let’s make it clear, finasteride generic is not for the impoverished, but for those that want to save money. Since this form of hair loss treatment needs to be taken on a daily basis and continuously throughout, it can really cost the user a lot of money if he continuously take the branded medication. Fortunately, generic treatment drugs like finasteride generic exists that have virtually the same effect as its branded cousin. Basically, finasteride generic are equally as effective as Propecia.
Propecia is a hair loss treatment drug that was developed and released by Merck. However, when their royalty over the drug has expired, it allowed generic drug manufacturers to reproduce the drug. For this reason, finasteride generic is made using the exact same ingredients that Merck uses to produce their male pattern baldness treatment drug, Propecia. Perhaps the only differences that finasteride generic has over its branded cousin are the manufacturing process and quality assurance. Nevertheless, finasteride generic is simply as effective as Propecia. Read more…
A majority of people usually think that men typically do not care much about their appearances. This kind of thinking is actually very untrue, especially when it comes to the subject of androgenetic alopecia, or otherwise known as male-pattern baldness. Men who are potentially going to suffer from this kind of condition (due to heredity) or those who are already going through a great deal of embarrassment and other negative emotions regarding baldness typically get to learn about one of its most well-known treatments, and that is, propecia generic.
Why is it called male-pattern baldness?
Male-pattern baldness is called like that simply because the balding process sort of follows a typical set pattern. The initial stage of classic male-pattern baldness is typically a disappearing hairline, and then it is followed by the thinning and lessening of the hair near the temples and on the top of the head. By the time these two balding areas meet in the center, it creates an illusion of a u-shaped hair surrounding the sides and the back of the head. Even if this process of balding is really slow in most men suffering from it, unfortunately, they will turn out to be completely bald in the long run. Read more…
