No Kidding About Kidneys

Ten points for who ever can guess what the topic of today’s post is.

Kidneys! No not the beans, the ones in your body that are crazy multi-taskers, cleaning your blood and ridding your body of waste.

I totally saved you from some absolutely repulsive and graphic kidney pictures by the way. I myself will not be eating for the next… oh 5 minutes, out of pure disgust after Googling REAL kidney photos. It’s actually crazy how much kidney beans and real kidneys look a like! Maybe kidney beans are actually the kidney of a plant? Okay, I’ll stop.

This got me to shut up

Sarah Hyland, you know that cute girl who plays a teenager yet looks about five years old on Modern Family, recently came clean about having a kidney transplant this past April after struggling with kidney dysplasia.

Wait, come again. Sarah had a kidney transplant? She looks so healthy. This just goes to show you really cannot judge a book by its cover.

Kidney dysplasia is obviously not the newest amusement park ride at Six Flags, it’s actually a condition that forms when a baby is in the womb. In kidney dysplasia, the internal structures of one or both of the baby’s kidneys do not develop normally. The reason why Sarah could survive with such an ailment all these years (she is 21, not five) is because this condition only affected one of her kidneys and you only need one to survive.

Unfortunately, the one prevailing kidney in her body was not exactly an “A+ student,” causing her enough extreme pain and fatigue to need a transplant.

Daddy to the rescue!

While it’s typically extremely hard to find a kidney donor, Sarah’s father swooped in and made it happen. What are dads for, right?

Now while you cannot predict whether or not you or your child will have kidney dysplasia, it’s always a good idea to treat your kidneys as though they are one of your most prized possessions… Yes, even more so than your Action Comics, No. 1 (who are you kidding, you don’t own this comic book!)

In order to keep your kidneys functioning like a brand new Bugatti Veyron, start your engines by…

  • Get plenty of heart pumping exercise
  • Quit smoking
  • Lose weight if you’re over weight
  • Reduce your salt consumption
  • Limit alcohol consumption
  • Eat nutritious & heart-healthy foods such as vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, etc.
  • Nix all refined foods from your diet

Oh… and eat kidney beans! They’re shaped that way because CLEARLY they’re good for your kidneys!

Which one is Mary-Kate and which one is Ashley?

So Long Peanuts

Well what do you know!

This week is Food Allergy Awareness week, which means… we will all probably find out what other foods Miley Cyrus is “allergic” to!

Well, her microphone is gluten-free

Instead of paying attention to Miley’s retort after the media claimed she lost too much weight, go on and take a gander at a few celebrities who have actually been diagnosed with food allergies.

These celebrities are not just trying to GAIN more media attention by following some… “fad diet claim”.

Serena Williams: Peanuts

Ekaterina Makarova spiked Serena’s protein drink!

Billy Bob Thornton:  Shellfish, Wheat and Dairy

His eyes are swelling shut! Someone get him to the hospital! Oh wait, it may just be the botox.

Drew Barrymore: Coffee and Garlic

Someone get this woman an epi-pen, STAT!

Halle Berry: Shrimp

Halle could roll around in cow shit and still look hot

Joshua Jackson: Peanuts

Joshua has a personal aid when he goes into anaphylactic shock

Clay Aiken: Mint, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Mushrooms and Chocolate.

Don’t give me any shellfish b****

Food allergies really are no laughing matter though because some cases can be fatal… Clearly if you try and feed Clay any of the foods his body can’t handle, you run the risk of death too.

If you feel as though you may suffer just like these celebrities (Miley not included), check out some food allergy symptoms and consult your doctor right away.

 

Rawdiculous

Who needs this damn frying pan! Ooo yum, raw nuts…

 

What is the deal with this raw food craze? Whoever invented fire must die (oh wait, he or she probably already is!). You can say bye bye to foods like chicken, beef, eggs

 

Oh wait, that looks pretty raw to me!

Celebs like Alicia Silverstone have adopted this kooky diet because they feel it cleanses their bodies (thanks to not eating processed foods)… but eating a raw vegan diet can lead to serious malnourishment.

 

Whoops… I mean…

The diet is generally 75% fruits and vegetables, which is great (all you chickens out there can rest easy… well until I come along) because raw foodies love to devour seaweed, sprouts, seeds and beans.

 If you see Carol Alt, Uma Thurman or Woody Harrelson drinking alcohol, you can call them out because the raw diet also restricts this consumption.

 

Wait, Uma is drinking in this picture?

What’s the point of this diet? Rawists believe that heating food higher than 118 degrees will kill key enzymes and vitamins in the food they’re eating… I wonder if they go in saunas?

 

I don’t think they can wear these either.

So yeah, this diet sounds measly, right? Exactly… which is why many fear that people who follow this eating trend will not get the proper nutrients, which leads to deficiencies.

Vitamin B12, which is critical for nerve and red blood cell development, is ONLY found in those CUTE LITTLE FARM ANIMALS… and if you don’t eat them… you could acquire anemia (excessive tiredness and bruising) and could become neurologically impaired.

Where’s the mustard?

Not getting enough calcium and healthy fat is another problem with this diet… oh heck, there is just a whole lot of problems with this diet. If you really really do feel the need to go this route though, seek a nutritionist’s advice… not Demi Moores’!

I feel like taking my frying pan and hitting some sense into these raw food celebs! Alright, no, I cannot really tell them what to do… but I can tell myself to… sear up some steak RIGHT NOW!

I love cow

Pork Chops in Bikinis

Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Renne Zellweger, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, LL Cool J, Catherine Zeta Jones, Stacey Keibler, Matthew McConaughey… All star in the upcoming flick, Pork Chops in Bikinis! Bound to be a bigger hit than all those Twilight Movies!

Just kidding! But what all these celebrities do have in common, is that they all swear (or at one point did) by the Atkins Diet.

Hot damn, eat fatty sausages never looked sexier.
