Just something that I had been thinking about...

For those of you with a fear of spiders, did you know the Dust Mite is an infestation in your own home? You sleep with literally millions of them every night! They survive by eating human skin flakes and we shed 50 million skin scales per day, so they have more than ample to eat - forever! Scientists have found 15 proteins in Dust Mite feces that cause allergic reactions in humans. 42,000 can inhibit one ounce of airborn particulate - that's the junk that floats in the air and gets pulled into your nose everytime you breathe! The scary part is... they have 8 legs and are a member of the arachnid family.

Intresting, isn't it?

Who are you callin' a freak?!
