Strangest Phobias #5




Fear of infants or young children can occur for a variety of reasons. This fear is often the product of our own childhood experiences, and it can be difficult to overcome.

If you suffer from the fear of children, we can give you some insight about why it happens.Pedophobia is defined as an abnormal and persistent condition that surfaces when the sufferer is around a child, or children. Excessive anxiety will occur whenever the pedophobe is forced to interact with children, or be around them. This fear can be viewed as irrational. Children rarely pose any threat to adults. However, their behavior can trigger Pedophobia in some people.


Psychological Reasons For This Phobia

There can be other reasons why a person fears children. They may have some traumatic memories that surface when they watch children play, or interact with each other. If someone was bullied or beaten up as a child, they may perceive children as evil or cruel. They may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, which causes flashbacks of painful memories they would much rather forget. In this case, the sight of children can be the trigger for their disorder, and the phobia will stem from childhood problems.

While some of you may just be indecisive and apathetic, there are people out there who are genuinely terrified of making decisions, they are known as decidophobes.

People With Decidophobia May Reach Out For The Wrong Kind Of Assistance

Some people with this phobia wish to abdicate from making decisions, or else they feel that they cannot make choices alone. In some cases, these feelings may lead to some unhealthy habits, such as a reliance on psychics, astrology, and other offshoots of magical thinking.

The symptoms of decidophobia can range from to insignificant to incredibly severe, often mimicking similar symptoms found inanxiety disorders or panic attacks. Symptoms include:

  • Dry mouth
  • Excessive sweating
  • Muscle Tension
  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Hyperventilation
  • Feeling of being trapped or stuck
  • An irrational feeling of impending disaster

Strangest Phobias #3




Generally found in children, coulrophobia is the fear of clowns. Some phobias are just so sad.Some researchers believe that coulrophobia cases increased after the 90’s, when Steven Spielberg classic horror film “IT” depicting a murderous clown was released and the portrayal of Joker as an evil character in Batman movies did not help the matter either

The phobia can cause a state of panic, difficulty in breathing, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea and feelings of fear.

The coulrphobia may seem absurd for some, however, many people suffer so much, that it prevents them to eat a hamburger in a famous fast food chain. It is not a trivial matter either and coulrophobia shouldn’t be treated lightly.

Some hospitals use clowns as mural decorations which may make some coulrophobic children feel unease during their stay at the hospital.

Although the fear of clowns develops most of the time during childhood, it is prevalent among adult population too, even if a big number of adults would deny it.

It is said that the phobia develops in early years, when children are very sensible to an unfamiliar face in a familiar body.

Strangest Phobias #2



Although butterflies in the stomach are often associated with love, for someone with philophobia those butterflies are more like deadly scorpions, as they are petrified of falling in love. Unfortunately many people in this category end up living a life of solitude and fear of commitment.

Every human relationship requires a certain amount of emotional involvement, but people who suffer from philophobia are often unable to make this connection. Philophobics may start by avoiding close contact with members of the opposite sex, and then become so sensitized to emotional reactions that they begin to avoid all people.

In addition, philophobia produces a distinct set of physical symptoms. Philophobia symptoms can range from nervousness or restlessness in the presence of the opposite sex, to feelings of absolute dread at the prospect of meeting someone. In its most extreme cases, philophobia can cause full-blown panic attacks: sweating, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, nausea and an intense need to escape from the presence of the potential lover.

Strangest Phobias #1



In what is probably one of the most convenient phobias on this list ergophobia is the fear of work or the workplace environment. On a serious note however, psychologists believe it is a combination of various fears such as failing at assigned tasks, social anxiety, and public speaking.

Psychology Fact of the Day



[- Decisions -]- What this means is that you just can’t resist noticing food, sex, or danger. It doesn’t matter how hard you try to not notice these 3 things in your surroundings, you will always notice them. It’s the old brain working. You don’t necessarily have to do anything once you notice, for example, you don’t have to eat the chocolate cake when you see it, you don’t have to flirt with the attractive person who walked into the room, and you don’t have to run away from the large scary guy that walked in the room with the good looking woman. But you WILL notice all of those things whether you want to or not.

Is dairy bad for you?



Through research I have learned milk isn’t good for your body. Now i have never been one to drink milk, but i do still eat  ice cream, cheese and sour cream. I just find it to hard to give up but maybe one day I will for good.

  1.  Milk isn’t constructed for us, its made for calf’s. The biological purpose of cow’s milk is to feed a rapidly growing calf. Humans aren’t calves… and adults usually don’t need to grow. Milk is not a natural substance for us.  Before the agricultural revolution, humans only drank mother’s milk as infants. They didn’t consume dairy as adults. Did you ever wonder why dairy wasn’t included in the strict paleo diet?

The enzyme lactase that is located in the villus enterocytes of the small intestine is responsible for digestion of lactose in milk. Lactase activity is high and vital during infancy, but in most mammals, including most humans, lactase activity declines after the weaning phase. In other healthy humans, lactase activity persists at a high level throughout adult life, enabling them to digest lactose as adults. This dominantly inherited genetic trait is known as lactase persistence.

A study was conducted:

Improved Lactose Digestion and Intolerance Among African-American Adolescent Girls Fed a Dairy Rich-Diet

Objective To determine whether African-American adolescent girls who were fed a dairy-rich diet for 21 days could adapt to lactose, experiencing an overall improvement in lactose tolerance as well as a decrease in hydrogen gas production.

Design Twenty-one–day dietary intervention study.

Subjects/setting Seventeen of 21 African-American girls (aged 11 to 15 years) enrolled in a calcium metabolism study chose to participate in the lactose tolerance study. Subjects were screened for any diseases, conditions, or medications that might alter calcium metabolism or colonic fermentation. Subjects were housed in a fraternity on the Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind, campus, and were supervised 24 hours a day.

Intervention Subjects consumed a dairy-based diet averaging 1,200 mg calcium and 33 g lactose per day for 21 days. Lactose digestion was assessed by an 8-hour breath hydrogen test on days 1 and 21, and symptoms of intolerance (abdominal pain, bloating, flatulence, and diarrhea) were evaluated hourly on a ranked scale during the breath hydrogen tests and once each evening during the 21-day feeding period.

Main outcome measures A comparison of breath hydrogen production and gastrointestinal symptoms at the beginning and end of the study.

Statistical analyses performed The Wilcoxon signed ranks test was used to compare the area under the curve for the 2 breath hydrogen tests. Spearman’s p test for trend was used to determine whether there was a change in symptoms. All statistical analyses were 2-tailed and significance was set at P=.05.

ResultsFourteen of the 17 subjects had lactose maldigestion. Breath hydrogen excretion decreased significantly (P<.03) from the beginning (148.3±27.0 ppm×hours) to the end (100.7±19.3 ppm×hours) of the 21-day period. Gastrointestinal symptoms were negligible during both the breath hydrogen tests as were symptoms during the 21-day period.

Applications/conclusions The diet was well tolerated by the subjects. Furthermore, the decrease in breath hydrogen suggests colonic adaptation to the high-lactose diet. The results indicate that lactose maldigestion should not be a restricting factor in developing adequate calcium diets for this population. The existence of lactose maldigestion does not result in lactose intolerance in this population when it is fed a dairy-rich diet. J Am Diet Assoc. 2000;100:524-528.

Would you be surprised to know  an astonishing three-quarters of us actually lack the enzyme to properly digest cow’s milk, and suffer digestively from the stuff. Most people begin to produce less lactase, the enzyme that helps with the digestion of milk, when they stop breastfeeding, around two years old. If our families don’t come from someplace that has raised dairy cows for centuries, it’s just not in our genetics to be able to process it. An estimated 98 percent of Southeast Asians, 90 percent of Asian-Americans, 74 percent of Native-Americans, 70 percent of African-Americans, and the majority of Jewish, Latino, and Indian people all suffer from lactose intolerance.

2. Milk is bad for your bones!  Many scientific studies have shown an wide assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to the consumption of milk. And the most surprising link is that not only do we barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk (especially if pasteurized), but to make matters worse, it actually increases calcium loss from the bones.  Crazy Right!  “Consumption of dairy products, particularly at age 20 years, was associated with an increased risk of hip fracture in old age. (“Case-Control Study of Risk Factors for Hip Fractures in the Elderly”. American Journal of Epidemiology. Vol. 139, No. 5, 1994).”

And according to the United States Department of Agriculture, countries in the European Union and the United States are the number one and two milk consumers in the entire world. Yes, it’s true. Europeans and Americans not only consume the most milk, we also suffer the most cases of osteoporosis across the globe.

3. Increase risk of Cancer: Exposure to estrogen in milk increases the risk of cancer.

A Harvard study of women age 26 to 46 showed that those with the highest intake of dairy also had the highest risk of breast cancer.
For men, multiple studies have showed a strong link between milk consumption and prostate cancer. High IGF-1 levels are linked to increased risk of prostate cancer and breast cancer. Calcium may also play a role in prostate cancer. … For ovarian cancer, galactose, a component of the milk sugar lactose, has been under study as a possible culprit.

4.ACNE: Milk and dairy products contain growth hormones and inflammatory substances that clog your pores and cause acne. If you eat milk, cheese, ice cream, or any other kind of dairy, and you have acne, this blog post could be the most important thing you read all week.
