What are important body signals that can be problematic 20 years from now?
Sense of smell and taste can predict neurodegenerative health issues. I do not want to use disease since health issues can still be prevented if we are proactive. With health knowledge now readily available in the internet, we can have an idea of what is happening to our bodies. There is Quora.com where I answered topics I read and simplified and experienced some of them as I work as a caregiver, apprentice midwife and pharmacy technician instructor.
Fungus on our feet
When I work as a caregiver for a hospice client who is dying of cancer, I inspect for fungus on the feet since this tells me the life story of the body’s health struggles. Molds, virus, fungus and other parasites/bacteria can destroy our cells disturbing the balance, robs us of our nutrients and invades our healthy cells. Thanks to antibiotics and other medicines, we can prevent proliferation of these microbes and invading organisms.
Lack of zinc and other nutrients in our diet can cause bad breath.
Excessive sweating can mean away from normal and must signal that our bodies are slow in responding to our signals or our nervous and endocrine system have health issues that need to be addressed early with proper nutrition and lifestyle changes.
Depression, mood swings, irritability anxiety or negative spirit or behavior issues
Stress and trauma at birth and during childhood and adulthood can affect our brain as shown in our behavior and thought patterns. I believe in nurture and the influence of our environment in creating a healthy brain. Hugs and kisses can have a positive effect in balancing our endocrine and nervous system.
Most seniors in care homes who have lived past 95 years of age have complete teeth. Cavities and gum disease can affect our health especially our heart or vascular health.
Metal fillings with mercury are toxic and best to replace them with healthy fillings. You can tell effects of metal toxicity from the curvature or ridges on sides of our tongue. Cilantro and other detox ways can help eliminate metal toxins from our bodies.
Skin itchiness, rashes, sensitivities, temperature and abnormal growth – a liver issue
Constipation, indigestion or bloating – digestive health issue
Gets sick easy – poor immune system
Allergies – poor immune system
Headaches or migraines – brain , heart, digestive and immune system
Sensitive to drugs, medications, alcohol and other food sensitivities – liver and poor immune system

Foodborne illness is prevented by inspection and surveillance conducted by health departments across America. Appropriate restaurant behavior is enforced and monitored via public health inspections. However, surveillance coverage provided by state and local health departments is insufficient in preventing the rising number of foodborne illness outbreaks.
To address this need for improved surveillance coverage we conducted a supplementary form of public health surveillance using social media data: Yelp.com restaurant reviews in the city of San Francisco.
Yelp is a social media site where users post reviews and rate restaurants they have personally visited. Presence of keywords related to health code regulations and foodborne illness symptoms, number of restaurant reviews, number of Yelp stars, and restaurant price range were included in a model predicting a restaurant’s likelihood of health code violation measured by the assigned San Francisco public health code rating. For a list of major health code violations see (S1 Table). We built the predictive model using 71,360 Yelp reviews of restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The predictive model was able to predict health code violations in 78% of the restaurants receiving serious citations in our pilot study of 440 restaurants. Training and validation data sets each pulled data from 220 restaurants in San Francisco. Keyword analysis of free text within Yelp not only improved detection of high-risk restaurants, but it also served to identify specific risk factors related to health code violation. To further validate our model we applied the model generated in our pilot study to Yelp data from 1,542 restaurants in San Francisco. The model achieved 91% sensitivity 74% specificity, area under the receiver operator curve of 98%, and positive predictive value of 29% (given a substandard health code rating prevalence of 10%). When our model was applied to restaurant reviews in New York City we achieved 74% sensitivity, 54% specificity, area under the receiver operator curve of 77%, and positive predictive value of 25% (given a prevalence of 12%).
Model accuracy improved when reviews ranked highest by Yelp were utilized. Our results indicate that public health surveillance can be improved by using social media data to identify restaurants at high risk for health code violation. Additionally, using highly ranked Yelp reviews improves predictive power and limits the number of reviews needed to generate prediction.
Use of this approach as an adjunct to current risk ranking of restaurants prior to inspection may enhance detection of those restaurants participating in high risk practices that may have gone previously undetected. This model represents a step forward in the integration of social media into meaningful public health interventions.

Here are comments from some of the readers:
- What is wrong with looking up what might be wrong and then asking your doctor this is not self-diagnosing but being aware of what might be wrong and then asking your doctor? In fifteen minutes which is the average most doctors give you why not ask clear questions. The day of the doctor god is gone they are not better in proactive analysis than the patient.
- Have had better results with herbs from google than crazy drugs I got from my doctor , some of side effects nearly killed me , have had much results with natural herbs I found from google thanks
- A GOOD Doctor will encourage you to take charge of your health and ask questions, a scared Doctor doesn’t want you getting information that can tell you how to heal yourself with non-pharmaceutical means. Or doing “their job” that they spent time and money going to school for.
- If it didn’t take so long to see a specialist we wouldn’t be so anxious. I have waited months and have not received even an appointment date. GP just offers more dangerous painkillers. Can’t blame us for trying to help ourselves.
- Someone needs to create a diagnosis machine. We can’t be that far off.
- Cannot prescribe many drugs when we can treat our selves by using research. Less drugs less money for doctors and the drug companies. Think about it. granny Barb
- If google is right 75% of the time it probably does about as well as a physician
- they need to make an internet doctor, this can’t be stopped unless they do
