 *"What's Behind Toddler's Extremely Rare Water Allergy? 18-month-old, Ivy 

Angerman, was recently diagnosed with aquagenic urticaria, or an allergy to 

water, according to local news station Fox 9. Her doctors say she may be the 

youngest person ever diagnosed with the condition, which more often appears 

around the age of puberty.

Ivy's parents have taken cellphone videos to show their daughter's severe 

reactions during bath time. She can be in the water for only 15 seconds before 

her symptoms appear, Fox 9 reported."

*"How Much Salt Do You Need to Survive? As important as sodium is, most 

Americans consume way too much of it. According to the federal government's 

official dietary guidelines, the average American adult should ingest a maximum 

of 2,300 milligrams of sodium every day — a far cry from the estimated 3,400 mg 

the average person actually consumes. High-sodium diets like these have been 

widely linked to hypertension (high blood pressure), which can increase your 

risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.


So, how much salt do you actually need to survive?

"The minimum in a country like the United States is probably about 1500 mg a 

day," Whelton said. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this is 

about the amount adults with high blood pressure should aim to consume each 

day. It's also the daily amount the Center for Disease Control and Prevention 

(CDC) recommends for babies under three years old."

*"Neutron Stars: Definition & Facts. Neutron stars are city-size stellar objects 

with a mass about 1.4 times that of the sun. Born from the explosive death of 

another, larger stars, these tiny objects pack quite a punch."

By Nola Taylor Redd, Contributor. February 23, 2018, 07:28 pm 


"Neutron stars are created when giant stars die in supernovas and their cores 

collapse, with the protons and electrons essentially melting into each other to 

form neutrons."
