Hey, the "Muslim isn't a race so I can't be racist against Muslims!" people: how come they care more about being accused of the wrong kind of bigotry than they do about being bigots in the first place? Is it cuz they racist? Or is it because Bill Maher loves the taste of poop?

Looks, Muslims definitely come in all colors, but if you think Islamophobia isn’t rooted in racism, you’re a fucking idiot. Maybe if racist assholes weren’t attacking random Sikhs and other, random, brown people with Islamophobic slurs your argument would fly a little bit more, but, as usual, racists are too fucking stupid to realize we all see through their arguments.

How can I give a better past medical history to my doctor?

Mmmm a good question! 

Originally posted by official-sciencesideoftumbler

-making a list for yourself; for example, on your phone, of your chronic medical conditions, the surgeries you have had, your most updated medication list. Lord knows I forget things all the time. Or on a piece of paper you keep in a consistent, safe place.

-try to recall when you started feeling poorly, or when symptoms that brought you in to see the doctor began to start. Obviously, I’m not talking “December 14th at 3:14AM.” i can’t even do that. But I appreciate “about 2-3 days ago”. What really drives me nuts is “I don’t know, I feel like forever” and then when I begin to ask about the nature of “forever” it’s actually yesterday.

-we’re not trying to be gross. I understand that some people don’t look at the color of their phelgm or their poop. I have to ask everyone about their smoking habits, drinking, and drug use. If you’re coming in for pelvic pain, expect me to ask about sexual intercourse and protection. I use to apologize and explain “it’s for paperwork” but honestly it’s so that I don’t accidentally hurt you or I don’t miss something else that could be making you ill, seriously ill that you as the patient or I as the physician cannot undo. So I don’t apologize anymore. And as one of my favorite attendings once said “Be honest with me and I will be honest with you. I’m not the police, I’m trying to help you.”

-sometimes people don’t know what physicians want to know. So here’s what we all usually want to know: 

   -if you have ever been hospitalized (I mean full on stayed in the hospital overnight or more) and why. Also what year did that happen. I’ll forgive you if you don’t remember the month or date. But tell me around what season, or national holiday, that’s fair. 

   -If you have recently (within the month or two) been to an urgent care or ER and why.  

   -What chronic medical issues do you have (if you are on medications and the condition is controlled, I still want to know)

   -Have you had surgery? Around what year? What kind of surgery, if you happen to know? Were there complications?

  -what medications do you take? This is where the list comes in handy. Or, bring all your pill boxes/carriers. Many patients will try to be helpful and say “the yellow pill once a day for my blood pressure.” although this is actually more helpful than many people imagine, it’s still in the patient’s best interest for them to know the name, dosage, and schedule for the medications they take. It’s for your safety and also to take command of your health.

  -Medication allergies. Food allergies. Please tell me. I don’t want you to have an allergic reaction in the hospital. Which happened to a co-intern of mine’s patient, and he said it was horrifying. You can also be upfront with me if you don’t have an allergy but really awful side effects happened to you. I’d like to know so that maybe we can do our best to avoid that medication OR anticipate the side effect and treat accordingly.

  -Another word on allergies: tell me what your allergy looks like. Is it a rash? Did your throat swell up and you thought you were going to die? Try to remember. People usually do, because it’s unexpected and kind of scary.

Obviously, this isn’t an exhaustive list. Anything else people want to add?


Straight Poop About Our Poop!

Above are color enhanced Scanning Electron Micrographs (SEMs) of different bacteria from human fecal samples. The different type of bacteria are colored differently for better differentiation. 


The intestine of humans is a complex and dynamic bacterial ecosystem that establishes itself within the first years of life. The gastrointestinal tract of a normal fetus has been considered to be sterile, however recently it has been acknowledged that microbial colonization may occur in the fetus. During birth and rapidly thereafter, bacteria from the mother and the surrounding environment colonize the infant’s gut. Immediately after vaginal delivery, babies may have bacterial strains derived from the mothers’ feces in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Infants born by cesarean section may also be exposed to their mothers’ microflora, but the initial exposure is most likely to be from the surrounding environment such as the air, other infants, and the nursing staff, which serve as vectors for transfer.

Bacteria in the gut fulfill a host of useful functions for humans, including digestion of unutilized energy substrates, stimulating cell growth, repressing the growth of harmful microorganisms, training the immune system to respond only to pathogens, and defending against some diseases. Without gut flora, the human body would be unable to utilize some of the undigested carbohydrates it consumes, because some types of gut flora have enzymes that human cells lack for breaking down certain polysaccharides.

The population density of the intestine is initially low and increases steadily with increasing age. In a healthy middle-aged adult the ecosystem is mainly anaerobic bacteria, with a total number of 10-100 trillion. Somewhere between 300 and 1000 different species live in the gut, with most estimates at about 500.The habitat of a human intestinal gut contains at least 500 to 1,000 different species. Approximately 1/3 of the solid matter in feces consists of dead bacteria.

I finally got my braces off, so here is the last picture I took before I got them off. Finally no more trips back to the orthodontist to get them tightened! I can eat whatever I want without worrying about getting food stuck 😁

I have a question (pls dont think that im attacking anyone) why isnt the brown-eye positivity also for white girls?

well dear, white girls still have privilege even if they have brown eyes, with poc if they don’t have green or blue or hazel eyes, they aren’t appreciated, like they are still beneath white girls and so that’s why. I remember when I was a little girl, my aunt’s side of the family have blue eyes and so I always wished I had blue eyes because they are so pretty while I called my brown eyes poop colored eyes, I started appreciating mine when I was 17 or so :/ Yeah white girls may have felt that way too, but they are still privileged
