When i was reading about Beryllium i found out about a lot of cool things…
Because of its relatively high transparency to X-rays and other ionizing radiation types, beryllium also has a number of uses as filters and windows for radiation and particle physics experiments. And because of its very low density, high melting point, high temperature stability, it has been used in rocket nozzles and space telescopes.
Commercial use of beryllium metal presents technical challenges due to the toxicity (especially by inhalation) of beryllium-containing dusts. Beryllium produces a direct corrosive effect to tissue, and can cause a chronic life-threatening allergic disease called berylliosis in susceptible persons.
So i had a choice for the picture, i could do something with x-rays or the the disease berylliosis. I took the shots for both a few nights ago and since i was sick last night (and well almost always lol)i thought it only fitting to do the berylliosis. 🙂 I thought a miner coughing would portray that nicely 🙂 Since part of the symptoms include cough and shortness of breath chest pain, joint aches, weight loss and fever. Ultimately, this leads to restrictive lung disease. 🙁 It is treatable but curable lol kinda like what i have! lol
I ended up staying home sick today too. I am starting to feel a bit better, but am still down for the count. its too bad too since its such a nice day out!! lol But there is nothing like watching cartoons all day in my PJ’s 😛 The kitties are all hanging with me too!

Text Appearing Before Image:
a constant or troublesome symptom unlessthe disease is complicated by gastric indigestion. The abdomen is usuallydistended by gas and there is frequent colic if constipation is present, butless often so if diarrhea. The appetite is generally good and sometimeslarge; the tongue varies; there is often irregular fever alternating with nor-mal or low temperature, or there may be more constant elevation, butonly when symptoms of constitutional intoxication develop. The urinemay show the presence of the acetone bodies and an increased output ofnitrogen in the form of ammonia, but this is not always the case. Insome patients there arises an intolerance for cows milk in any form,its administration being followed by an exacerbation of the symptoms,including vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and sometimes cutaneous eruptionsand evidence of a disturbed nervous state. The chief symptom, however, is -persistent increasing malnutrition,with all the symptoms already described under the heading of infantile

The children gradually waste more and more,and suffer from low temperature, feeble circulation, anemia, and in-creasing debility. They are usually constantly fretful in the early stageand often apathetic later. During this condition of malnutrition no verypositive evidences of indigestion may be discoverable. Yet diminishingthe amount of food of these infants may increase the rapid loss of weight,while increasing the amount may have the same effect, often with attacksof autointoxication of a dangerous nature. Course and Prognosis.—The course of the disease is very variableand the duration uncertain. At best it is long-continuetl and lasts formonths before recovery is assured. In some instances the loss of weightis constant and extreme (Fig. 252). In others the
