It is made in the form of a liquid, paste, or in a block, or used as a flavoring ingredient in other foods. Cacao has been cultivated by many cultures for at least three millennia in Mesoamerica.

5. Fever:


    Fever, also known as pyrexia and febrile response, is defined as having a temperature above the normal range due to an increase in the body's temperature set-point. There is not a single agreed-upon upper limit for normal temperature with sources using values between 37.5 and 38.3 °C (99.5 and 100.9 °F). The increase in set-point triggers increased muscle contraction and causes a feeling of cold. This results in greater heat production and efforts to conserve heat. When the set-point temperature returns to normal a person feels hot becomes flushed, and may begin to sweat. Rarely a fever may trigger a febrile seizure. This is more common in young children. Fevers do not typically go higher than 41 to 42 °C (105.8 to 107.6 °F). Fever is the good thing you need to get once in a month so it can increase your body Stamina.

Benefits Of Fever:


  1.    Improves Immune function.
  2.    Stimulates the release of exogenous pyrogens and triggers a set of neurologic, endocrinologic, metabolic and immunologic alterations called the acute/cold phase response.
  3.    Stimulates the production of T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes.
  4.    Increases production of interferon, the body's own virus-fighting substance.
  5.   Enhances infection-fighting abilities through increased phagocytic activity at temperatures between 38 C and 40 C.
  6.   Conserves energy needed to fight the infection; slow-wave sleep patterns are produced reducing energy requirements.
  7.   Reduced levels of free iron levels causing a resultant increase in ferritin- inhibiting the growth and development of many viruses and bacteria and
  8.   Mild temperature up to 39 c has no detrimental effects.

When to Seek Help:

There are times when a fever, sometimes in combination with other symptoms, should send you hightailing it to a doctor or emergency room. This include:


  1. A rectal temperature of 100.4 degrees or greater in an infant less than 6 weeks old. "Young babies are at more risk for certain serious bacterial infections, and fever is an indication of these," says pediatrician Ari Brown.
  2. A fever of more than five days duration.
  3. High fever accompanied by lethargy -- your child is limp and unresponsive, won't make eye contact, or generally just looks and acts really sick.
  4. High fever accompanied by any of the symptoms of meningitis: an unusual skin rash, severe headache, aversion to light, confusion, stiff or painful neck.
  5. Constant, inconsolable crying.

4. Beer:


      Beer is the world's most widely consumed and probably the oldest alcoholic beverage; it is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea. The production of beer is called brewing, which involves the fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains—most commonly malted barley, although wheat, maize (corn), and rice are widely used. Most beer is flavored with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavorings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included. The fermentation process causes a natural carbonation effect, although this is often removed during processing, and replaced with forced carbonation. Drinking a glass beer per day will make you lead good and healthy life. According to research, moderate beer intake can protect you against heart disease.

Benefits Of Beer:


  1.    Beer keeps your kidneys healthy
  2.   Beer for better digestion function
  3.   Beer to lower your bad cholesterol
  4.   Beer can increase your vitamin B levels
  5.   Beer for stronger bones!
  6.   Beer as a cure for insomnia Lactoflavin and nicotinic acid, which are both present in beer, can promote sleep!
  7.   Beer reduces your risk of a heart attack
  8.   Beer helps prevent blood clots
  9.   Beer boosts your memory According to studies, beer drinkers are less likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and dementia than non-beer drinkers.
  10.   Beer helps combat stress Researchers at the University of Montreal found that two glasses of beer a day can reduce work-related stress or anxiety.
  11.   Beer as a cold remedy Drinking warm beer is an excellent cold remedy!
  12.   Beer makes skin more beautiful Good news for women!

3. Sex:


Scientists have found that the benefits of sex go beyond immediate, ahem, gratification and satisfying the goal of  procreation. Besides the obvious evolutionary purposes, we can all take pleasure in the news that having sex is an easy way to reduce stress, lower cholesterol and improve circulation throughout the body. As if you needed another excuse.

Benefits Of Sex:


  1.         Sex relieves stress.
  2.      Sex boosts immunity.
  3.      Sex burns calories.
  4.      Sex improves cardiovascular health.
  5.      Sex boosts self-esteem.

  7.      Sex reduces pain.
  8.      Sex reduces prostate cancer risk.
  9.      Sex strengthens pelvic floor muscles.
  10.      Sex helps you sleep better.       

2. Maggots:


       Gross, sure, but maggots are used to treat wounds for hundreds of years. Scientific studies in the 1920s show that maggots helped clean dirty and necrotic wounds by feeding on the dead tissue while leaving the healthy tissue unaffected. The use of the live treatment sharply declined in the 1940s with the introduction of penicillin, a much less disturbing prescription. However, with the advent of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, many doctors are once again prescribing maggots as a viable therapeutic option. A recent study published in the Archives of Dermatology found that maggot therapy was a more effective treatment option than conventional surgical debridement during the first week of 119 people with wounds that would not heal. Whereas maggot therapy in a controlled hospital environment can be an effective method of treating wounds, health care professionals urge patients to not try it at home. Uncontrolled maggot therapy can lead to infestation, infections, and other complications. 

1. LSD:



   Yes, LSD is meant to be on this list. A study published in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease showed that the psychedelic drug paired with psychotherapy alleviated end-of-life anxiety in patients suffering from terminal illnesses. Researchers separated 12 terminally ill patients into 2 groups and administered different amounts of LSD. The first group was given 200 micrograms of the drug and the other group received 20 micrograms. Each person underwent 2 dosing sessions separated by a few weeks. The low-dosage group reported that their anxiety got worse, whereas the higher-dosage group said their treatment had profound positive effects on their anxiety. Rick Doblin, the founder of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, which largely funded the study, says that the psychoactive ingredients interact with the brain’s filtering system and allow for suppressed thoughts and feelings to reveal themselves. The LSD-assisted therapy helped patients fearing death shift their thinking from focusing on the time they don’t have left to the time they do have. “Something is fundamentally changed by successful LSD-assisted psychotherapy,” Doblin said. “That’s not to say it works for everybody, but there can be permanent changes in people’s attitudes and in their brains.” No prolonged negative effects of the therapy were reported.
