As someone who picks ticks off himself (and the other day one was in MY PRIVATES(!)) and many, many, many more off the ($60 Frontline treated) dogs near daily I find this mind blowing.
WOW. This is beyond the pale.
Lyme disease is NOT funny. I know quite a few that have it.
I live in dread every day. This is prime Tick & Lyme country and as you must know I go walking/running/hiking around here every day. I don’t think you can build up immunity against Lyme but I keep on hoping that is the case. Though I manage to pick MOST OFF before they really manage to get through my rhinoceros skin, I still end up with 20 to 30 decent tick bites every year.

The claims being made for Glutathione.

Oh, dear! I guess it was inevitable. Brown people wanting to be white. Yikes.
Well, I of all people, cannot claim to be surprised. My adoptive mother, as I have mentioned before, so hated being dark. She would have opted for this like there was no tomorrow.
I had never heard of ‘Glutathione’. I knew that there were drugs that claimed to make you whiter but it was not something that was of import to I. So, you live and learn.
Did some quick Googling on ‘Glutathione’. Appears that it is not harmful per se and MIGHT do some of what is claimed above. But, whitening skin is not on the list of things it is good at doing.
Yes, my life would have been very different if I had been white. But, having been born brown I would never have considered any kind of chemical treatment to make me white. But, that is I. Maybe I should have.
