Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Why won´t my doctor prescribe s stronger pain medication?

Laurie found a yellow mushroom in my garden and ate 2 bites. We think its leucocoprinus birnbaumii. Is this poisonous? What should we do?

Laurie found a yellow mushroom in my garden and ate 2 bites. We think its leucocoprinus birnbaumii. Is this poisonous? What should we do?

Possibly poisonous: Leucocoprinus birnbaumii is considered "possibly poisonous" or "poisonous" by various experts. The most likely symptom is stomach pain/cramping and nausea/vomiting but 2 bites are unlikely to cause serious problems. One should never eat wild mushrooms unless they are willing to bet their life that they are safe. I advise you take the homeopathic remedy nux vomica and call poison control as well. ...Read more
