Amusing Cooking Parallels

I was reading about meat tenderizing in one of my cookbooks. Tell me if this sounds familiar.

To tenderize tough meat fibers you can either do so mechanically as with a jaccard or a mallet (Like needling or subcision), or with an acid such as vinegar or lemon, or enzymatically with papaya juice. I saw a website propose that restaurants employ the use of maggots to eat dead or devitalized tissue (the customer need never know!).

Well there you go!

Maggots are used by Doctors to for some treatments.. Can't remmeber what for.

Wouldn't it be great if there was bacteria that ate only scar tissue but had no effect on healthy skin.

If I had to stay home for a week with maggots or leachs attached to my face to get rid of my scars I would do it!

Great post Anna. In a way, it makes perfect sense. U got to break up

that old scar-collagen-thingy but then what? I think I posted here about

my large toe injury maybe 10 years ago. It got grungy yellow & thick &

this foot DR said it was natures way of dealing w/ that injury (just like a

scar is) .... worst news, he said that even if I lost the nail it would grow

back the same!!!! The pattern was "laid down" by the toe cells in response

2 my injury. Now some good news .... I keep the nail short & trimmed &

pampered (I go 2 a foot DR once-twice a year) + every 2 mos I get

a pedicure (no polish etc etc hehe just clipping massaging ) so the skin

around it looks nice & healthy & its not yellow. Somewhere a cell biologist

is reading our posts & is working on how 2 re-grow fresh unscarred skin.

Just 2 b clear, I hurt my toeNAIL & it was the nail that the DR said would

just stay the same.

Hi Derek 7.2,

I had a similar situation. When I was 17 I had acrylic artificial nails put on. I got a nail bed infection on my middle finger and my thumb (hurt like hell!). After the infection cleared the nail first grew out really weird and distorted. But slowly it started growing more normally. I think the whole process took almost two years, but now my nails are perfect. I even get offers to be a hand model!!!

I really hope that some day we can all get perfect skin. When (not if) that happens I propose that we have a worldwide celebration!

I was playing Cricket once when I was 15 or 16, I didn't wear any gloves and was Batting. The ball smacked my right thumb on the tip. The nail totally dislodged and was ripped off the finger and was hanging of the side off the finger by a small strip of skin.

Eventually it grew back to normal.

Why the hell won't my facial skin to the same?????

Why can't I have Bad skin on the sole of my feet instead of my Face????

Why? Why? Why? Why? WHY?
