Atchooo!

So, it finally happened. You attended your favorite show, and despite your best efforts to stay well, you’ve become a member of the infected horde. Con Crud is a convergence of diseases from all around the world, all attempting to trounce your immune system via the promise of having a fun time at a convention. It was bound to happen sooner or later. If you get sick during a con, come see UsagiMed! We’ve got lots of stuff that can help you feel better and keep the con dream alive. But sometimes, maybe it’s just better to cut your losses and go home before you make someone else sick. And sometimes, symptoms don’t even show up until after you’ve made it home.

So what do you do now? How do you get back to that happy place you were in during the convention, where the sun was shining, and you could sing along with Totoro without coughing up a lung? Here are a few tips:

Pineapple Belongs On Pizza

Pineapple Belongs On Pizza

We in Usagi Medical Group are generally very open minded people. Still the issue of whether or not pineapple belongs on pizza has come to our table. We did a little research:

Pineapple Belongs On Pizza

Pineapple provides vitamins A and C, and fiber. As well as having high amounts of manganese, which is important for antioxidant defenses, pineapples also contain high amounts of thiamin, a B vitamin that is involved in energy production. Bromelain, an enzyme found in pineapple juice, is an anti-inflammatory, and it aids with digestion. So eating pineapple is a good way to treat your immune system right, and fight off con crud.

We therefore embrace the notion that pineapple belongs on a pizza. Besides, it tastes good. For those of you who are somehow hurt by this declaration, we are reserving a band-aid for you in our UsagiMed offices. Thank you.
