Water, Milk and Baking Soda Mixture for fighting Tear Gas effect.

Dispelling tear gas from eyes

Hello there, welcome to foodart. Today we won’t talk about the nutrition content of any food, but instead we will be talking about how milk, baking soda mixture and water can help protect the eyes from tear gas effects.

Tear gas is any lachrymatory non- lethal chemical compound that causes the eyes to sting and water and also irritates the respiratory system ( English dictionary).

Tear gas is mostly used by the police forces on a crowd of people, during a protest when there is a tendency of violence, or actual violence.

Although, it is described as non- lethal tear gas could be dangerous or even deadly, due to prolonged exposure and constant inhaling of the unhealthy chemical, it can even lead to death.

3 Remedies for tear gas effects

Water: We will start with water because it’s the easiest to get and to apply. You could either use saline or tap water, bottle water included. Once tear gas gets to the eyes, the eyes immediately becomes irritated and hurts; the eyes become red and so it is advised, that water is used immediately if other suggestions are not available. Take water, open the eyelids, pour water and continue pouring, until the stinging stops, that means most of the tear gas has been washed off

Rushing water

Baking Soda: Baking soda is applied by mixing in water first. If you are to use a 50cl bottled water for example, 3 table spoons of Baking soda should be enough to stop the stinging.

Milk: Milk could also be used. Although to avoid later complications like bacteria infection, milk is not advised except you would be seeing the doctor immediately. Cold milk application could help calm stinking and pain but not for long, I would even advice one makes use of water instead.

Ginger contains a very important compound called gingerol. Gingerol is so powerful, here is why:

Toothaches: Do you have a toddler, who’s experiencing constant toothache and does not sleep at night, ginger can do the trick! Grate a small lobe of ginger after peeling it’s skin, put your grated ginger in a clean pot, put about 3 glasses of water, put the pot on the stove and allow to boil. Wait until the water is warm, pour it into a cup and make the child drink it, if the child is old enough to do things him/herself, let the child gurgle with it every morning.

Reduction of pain in Sick cell warriors: Although ginger is not a drug, or powerful like most pain killers taken by sickle cell warriors, ginger has been proven to have it’s own anti- inflammatory properties, which helps relieve pain in joints.
