Panic Day - March 9

On the one hand we are told not to panic. On the other hand we have a mysterious virus that threatens us all and causes tens of thousands of people in the country to be locked up in isolated homes. so what are we doing? Panic or not?
Panic Day is an informal holiday celebrated every year on March 9th. On this day it is allowed and even recommended to be in a panic. On this day we have to run around in a panic and tell everyone that we can not handle it anymore. This day was invented by Thomas and Ruth Roy from the Wellcat website a few years ago, along with a few other weird copyrighted holidays. According to the creators of the holiday, it was created in collaboration with the Falling Sky Association.

Panic is a sudden feeling of fear of danger. Panic can lead to sad, difficult and frightening consequences. Mass panic that occurs during public events can result in a disorganized escape that can lead to injuries and even deaths. This is why in stressful situations people try to stay calm and take deep breaths to avoid panic. As written in the cover of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Don't Panic, which is probably the best advice the author Douglas Adams has given to humanity.
The panic caused by the corona virus that is starring in headlines today can cause the shelves of retail chains to be emptied of essential products as we have seen in recent days, and of all sorts of scenarios such as a hysterical and dangerous escape from a corona patient or blue suspect.
The origin of the word panic is from the Greek word πανικός, from the god Pan from Greek mythology. Probably originated in legends about the god Pan who used to have fun in the panic of herds of aids and sheep, or the panic of people encountering him in desolate areas, or the making of strange and terrifying noises at night.

Panic creation has been an important tool in social revolutions throughout history. Many leaders have taken advantage of the past and are still taking advantage of the panic to advance their political goals because it is known that in such situations people operate in the herd method.
Because it is very difficult to avoid panic and stay calm all the time, and repressed emotions can erupt significantly in the future and even cause a nervous breakdown, invent a special day for panic where we are free to freak out and run around in panic when we tell others we can no longer cope.
How to celebrate Panic Day?
It is not clear why Panic Day is celebrated on March 9, but there is no better day for it than now. Today is the day to release pressures to gather strength to face the real and threatening situation of us all. Another way to celebrate the day is to learn to use techniques that relieve anxiety like various meditations.

Eduard Monk's Scream Painting, 189, is a Norwegian expressionist painter who suffered a great deal of anxiety and depression during his lifetime.

March 9 is also Barbie's birthday  and False Teeth Day

False Teeth Day- March 9

 False Teeth Day is celebrated on March 9 every year. False teeth or dentures are artificial accessories that are built to replace missing teeth. They play the role of biting and chewing in the mouth and also play an aesthetic-cosmetic role. They also maintain the proper structure of the oral and maxillofacial cavities. The dentures are supported by the soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. The teeth can be removed by pulling them out by hand to clean or replace them, so they can be put in a glass of water for hours to be cleaned. There are also permanent dentures which are the dental implants.


There are partial or full dentures, that is, false teeth that replace some of the teeth in the mouth and teeth that replace all the teeth in the mouth. There are many types of false teeth: some are made of porcelain and some are made of plastic; Porcelain causes a feeling similar to natural teeth.

It is not known who created the false teeth day, but its purpose was to get us to go check our teeth and consider replacing our teeth if the condition is really bad, to maintain oral health. It makes sense that it was a dentist who invented this special day.

The fascinating history of false teeth

Our teeth and condition have almost always been a sign of how we live our lives. The ability to eat well and smile a beautiful, radiant smile depends on our teeth being healthy. Missing teeth can damage both speech and appearance. Dental health and hygiene at various points in history have been a sign of the wealth and power of man in society.


The first and oldest record of dentures is from the 7th century BC, in the Etruscan people who ruled northern Italy until the beginning of ancient Roman rule. It was discovered that they formed partial dentures from the connection of human teeth with animal teeth using a gold connector.

In the early 16th century, full dentures were invented in Japan. They were made of wood and the patient's mouth was measured using beeswax. Later the tree was replaced with ivory and the horns of various animals.

Pierre Fauchard, a French dentist nicknamed the "Father of Modern Dentistry" came up with the idea of teeth made from a metal frame and teeth carved from animal bone. Also use teeth taken from corpses, people from executions or cemeteries.

At the Battle of Waterloo, for example, in 1815, more than 10,000 soldiers were killed, most of them young and healthy. Many teeth were taken from their bodies. The bodies of hundreds of thousands of soldiers killed in the Battle of Leipzig in October 1813 were also taken for replacement.

In 1770 Alexis Duchâteau invented the first porcelain dentures.


In 1820 a jeweler named Samuel Stockton began producing high quality porcelain dentures mounted on 18ct gold plates. But this option was reserved mostly for the rich.

Today the denture option has become more available and accessible. Many celebrities have dentures, including George Washington, Nicholas Cage and Celine Dion. When you look at their smile it is hard to tell that these are not real teeth, and the way to find out if someone has dentures or natural teeth is to look at pictures of him from past years and see if there is a significant change in their appearance.

How to celebrate False Teeth Day?

It is possible to celebrate the False Teeth day by making an appointment with a dentist or dental hygienist. Gum disease is also a cause of tooth loss and the need for replacement teeth. It is important to keep your teeth strong and healthy so that we do not need fake teeth. Dental diseases and decay can also affect our overall health. Heart disease, infection, pain, decreased concentration and lack of sleep are just some of the ways in which the body can be affected by dental problems. Learn about dental care and ways to protect it from falling or needing displacement. A healthy lifestyle also includes maintaining teeth and gums! To raise awareness for preserving our natural teeth, post pictures on social media on the topic of this day with the hashtag: on Twitter #FalseTeethDay and on Instagram: #falseteethday

March 9 is also Barbie Day and Panic Day

Dress in Blue Day - The first Friday in March

Dress in Blue Day was initiated by Anita Mitchell, an American teacher who recovered from stage 4 colon cancer but lost a close friend and her father to the disease.
Mitchell wanted to raise awareness for early detection of life-saving colon cancer. In 2006 she worked with her classmates on an idea for a day of illness recognition. They came up with the idea that instead of the regular uniforms that should be brought to school all year round, on the first Friday of March they could come in blue clothes of their choice, provided they donated one dollar to colon cancer research.

Subsequently, every March became the month of awareness of colon cancer awareness.
The idea of ​​dressing in blue on the first Friday in March to promote disease awareness became national in 2009. Anita introduced the idea to the Colon Cancer Association and they enthusiastically promoted it throughout the United States. A blue star was chosen as a symbol for the memory of people who died of colon cancer.
Early detection of colon cancer significantly increases the chance of recovery.
Colon cancer has no visible symptoms in the first two to three years of development, so it is recommended that anyone over the age of 50, the age at which the risk of the disease increases, do tests to detect the disease, such as a stool test and a routine colonoscopy. People who have symptoms of colon cancer are advised to get tested even if they have not reached the age of 50.

The symptoms of colon cancer are:
A change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea, soft and mucous bowel movements, constipation, a change in the diameter of the bowel which lasts for more than a few days. A feeling of lack of vacancy. Rectal bleeding or blood mixed with feces, the blood can be red or walnut and even prone to black. Abdominal pain. Weakness / anemia due to iron deficiency. Weight loss. These symptoms can also indicate the presence of other diseases, but it is recommended to be tested anyway when they appear.
To prevent the disease one must maintain a healthy lifestyle: avoid smoking and obesity, exercise and eat healthy.
In 2011, Carmen Mark Valvo, an American fashion designer, partnered with the Colon Cancer Committee to promote Blue Dress Day.

How to mark Dress in Blue Day?

First of all, wear blue clothes that everyone usually has in the closet and tell people the cause, to encourage them to read and get to know the disease and go get tested. You can donate to the Association for the War on Cancer, you can donate hair to cancer patients and most importantly, promote awareness of the disease to prevent its tragic consequences.

Rare Disease Day - 28 February

Rare Illness Day is a day marked on the last day of February (i.e., usually on February 28 and once every four years on February 29). This day is designed to raise awareness of the existence of rare diseases and improve access to medical care and representation for people with rare diseases and their families.

Rare Diseases Day was founded in 2008 by the European Organization for Rare Diseases (EURORDIS). According to the organization, the treatment of rare diseases is not sufficient as well as the social networks to support people suffering from these diseases and their family members.
A rare disease is also called an "orphan disease" - a disease for which no resources have been invested over the years to research it and develop vaccines and drugs against it, because in science most of the time and resources are invested in more common diseases in the population. Rare diseases are most often complex genetic diseases, and according to the World Health Organization there are more than 5,000 types of such diseases.
All the rare diseases affect about one percent of the world population. In the EU the definition of the rare disease is its existence in one person out of 2,000 people. In the US the disease is rare if it is present in one in 2,500 people.

Diagnosis of rare diseases is difficult and takes longer than common diseases, because many times the existing symptoms are suitable for common diseases and because of misdiagnosis, the treatment is not appropriate and the patient suffers more. The remedies for rare diseases are usually not in the health basket because too few sick people need them.
Examples of rare diseases: Fabry disease, Morquio syndrome, Pompe disease.

Cashew Day - November 23

Cashew is a fun nut to snack on all year round, and November 23rd is his holiday.
The cashew nut we love so much is the fruit of the cashew tree, which develops from the fruit pimple, where the cashew flower comes out. The fruit cannot be eaten without processing because its peel contains resin that can cause the body to react to poisoning. That is why cashews are sold after they have undergone a process of heating and peeling. Cashews have great nutritional value. It contains lots of antioxidants, vitamin B and minerals like iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium. It is recommended to buy it as natural as possible and without added salt.

The cashew tree also has an edible fruit, called a "cashew apple" and is pear-shaped, edible and has a soft and sweet texture. The cashew apple is coated with a delicate peel and contains no seeds.
The cashew apple
Cashews on the tree
The cashew tree originates in northeastern Brazil. Today it is grown in extensive areas of South America. Cashews also reached Africa and Southeast Asia by the Portuguese between the 15th and 17th centuries, when they were a colonial empire and their merchants would roam and discover the world. Today, cashews are grown commercially in 32 countries around the world that have tropical and subtropical climates, mainly in Vietnam, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, India, Brazil and Indonesia.

The cashew tree has a convoluted trunk like a spiral and a texture reminiscent of leather, and it reaches a height of 12 meters. Its flowers are small, at first they have a light green color and then they turn red, with each of them having five thin and sharp petals.

The largest cashew tree in the world is the Cashew of Pirangi which covers about 7,525 square meters and is located in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. Its size is like 70 cashews together, and when you walk where it is, you feel Who walk in a whole forest of cashew trees, when in fact it is only one tree

From the cashews it is possible to make a drink that resembles milk and also vegetable cheese. Cashew cheese is rich in unsaturated fat that is good for heart health. From the cashew cheese you can make a vegan cheesecake, vegan pizza, vegan macaroni and cheese and actually use it as a cheese substitute in any dish that contains cow's milk cheese.

A simple and easy recipe for cashew cheese:
Soak 1 cup of fresh cashews overnight in cold water.
In a food processor or blender, grind the nuts with a little water until you get the desired texture, juice of half a lemon, 1 tablespoon of quality raw tahini (optional) and 1 clove of garlic (optional) and a little salt.
The cheese is ready when a uniform and smooth paste is obtained. The cheese can be kept for a week in the refrigerator in a closed container.
If you want, you can also add herbs you like, brewer's yeast or pine nuts.

In Latin America, cashew apple fruit is also made into a drink.

Cashews cause fewer allergic reactions than nuts or other peanuts.

The cashew nut first came to Goa, India, by the Portuguese, between 1560 and 1565. From Goa it spread throughout Southeast Asia, and eventually, reached Africa as well.

There is also cashew oil which is a delicious addition to a salad or sauce.

Many parts of the plant are used for medicinal purposes.

The cashews we eat also have a dark side: the cashews industry in backward countries uses people who peel the nuts with bare hands and are harmed by the toxins in its shell. Besides, their working conditions are poor and wages are meager. In recent years, the struggle of European activists for fair trade in cashews and the provision of working conditions and job security for people working in the cashew industry has intensified. When buying cashews, you should find out where it came from and buy from countries where there is fair trade.

How to celebrate Cashew Day?
There are so many snacks that contain cashews. You can savor them today, just you should check that they are as little processed and salted as possible to enjoy the health benefits of cashews. You can enrich your salads with cashews. It is today to make cashew cheese which is a great and healthy substitute for regular cheese. Instead of cow's milk, you can try a cashew drink today, which, as we mentioned earlier, is very rich in minerals and vitamins from plants.
