Blogging! what is it all about???
The first time that our teacher told us that we're going to do blogging I was shock. Literally shock! Why???  cause I don't know where to start, what to write, and so on. It's not that it was new to me but It's not my forte, I'm not a good writer at all. But then I try.

The first topic assign to us is Endocrinology. At first, we need to start with the books or some trusted sites. I read about the topic, get the main idea then construct my own blog. One rule in blogging is "PLAGIARISM IS NOT ALLOWED". When you copy you cannot call it "MINE" cause you didn't work hard for it. 


At first, I was thinking that "I need to create my blog so I could have a grade", but as time passed the thought of having grades was replaced by enjoyment. I enjoy blogging, and I also learn from it. I enjoy expressing my thoughts and sharing it to others. From reading books I gain new knowledge, from writing I can practice my own grammar and in reporting blog I gain CONFIDENCE.

Though it's the end of the semester, I could say that IT IS NOT YET THE END FOR BLOGGING. Thanks to Mrs. Virginia Gaces who inspired us and help us in these.

Toxicology: So Irritating

Factory
Every time I go home, I always passed by these factory that whenever I smell the toxic gas that this factory emit,. I can finally said, "Malapit na ko samin." Seriously, I don't like the smell it was so irritating.

So what is it all about????

Toxicology is the branch of science that deals with the harmful effects of chemicals, could be natural or man –made poison, on living organism. Harmful effect that could affect the usual function of individual. 



  • Routes Of Exposure

    • Gastrointestinal
    • Respiratory
    • Dermal

Subdiscipline of Toxicology


Drugs
Marijuana

            It deals with the toxic effects of drugs whose purpose is to prevent a disease. Drugs can also cause harmful effects dependent on different factors such as individual age, dose of drugs, and hypersensitivity reaction.
           People nowadays, get use of taking drugs just to satisfy one needs and for suicidal use. One way of having suicide is by overdose method, taking larger dose than the usual amount.


It mainly concerned on the content of toxic substance in food, properties, and its effects.
What's on my food?????
During the preparation of food different types of additives were use to make food look and smell better. Additives include artificial sweeteners (that increase the sweetness of food), color (enhance or add color), Glazing agent (improves appearance of food), and preservatives (stop microbes from multiplying and spoiling the food). Another factor that affect is the pesticide use. 

    • Flavour enhancers – monosodium glutamate (MSG) 621
    • Food colourings – tartrazine 102; yellow 2G107; sunset yellow FCF110; cochineal 120
    • Preservatives – benzoates 210, 211, 212, 213; nitrates 249, 250, 251, 252; sulphites 220, 221, 222, 223, 224, 225 and 228
    • Artificial sweetener – aspartame 951.

    • Digestive disorders – diarrhoea and colicky pains
    • Nervous disorders – hyperactivity, insomnia and irritability
    • Respiratory problems – asthma, rhinitis and sinusitis
    • Skin problems – hives, itching, rashes and swelling.

It is the branch of toxicology that assist medical investigation on the cause of death and poisoning of individual that have suffer from intoxication. Chemical evidence collected at the crime scene that may help in the investigation such as pill bottle, traced residue and powder will be further analyzed in the forensic laboratory.

ENDOCRINOLOGY. ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. ENDOCRINE GLAND. HORMONE





"Normally a girl enters the puberty age by undergoing through different developmental stages. For instance, teenage girls experience mood swings especially during the onset of menstruation which is evident every month for those with regular cycle. Another major event of a girl in becoming a lady would include enlargement of the breast along with the widening of the hips. The one responsible for these changes is the HORMONE."


ENDOCRINOLOGY


Endocrinology is a branch of science that deals with the study of the endocrine system. Endocrine system is consist of different glands wherein each gland produces specific hormone. These hormone travels in the bloodstream and play specific task in the body like in the reproduction, development, and growth.

These are the following GLANDS that comprise the Endocrine system:
The Endocrine System
  • Hypothalamus
  • Pituitary gland
  • Parathyroid gland
  • Thyroid gland
  • Adrenal glands
  • Pancreas
  • Ovaries (in female body)
  • Testes (in male body)


Hormones act as a chemical messenger between cells. It is produce by a specific gland of the body but it elicits an action on the other organ. It only targets the cell that has the compatible receptor so that it can be activated and play the specific task.

                                     Thanks to hormone because without it, there's no US!
