A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors ignited and engulfed him He jumped from his truck, screaming.

His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs and a bowl yelling: "bring me some more eggs!"

She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks.
The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites onto the young man's face.

When the ambulance arrived and the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. Everyone pointed to the lady in charge.

They congratulated her and said: "You have saved his face."

By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His face was like a baby's skin.
A Healing Miracle for Burns:

Keep in mind this treatment of burns is being included in teaching beginner fireman. First Aid consists of first spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced which stops the continued burning of all layers of the skin. Then, spread the egg whites onto the affected area.

One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg whites from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.

She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.

Leeana, this is from an old hoax email that has been floating around for a couple of years. There are numerous references on the internet debunking it as false, but I'm linking to Snopes.

Thanks Drac puppy

Sadly, most of these are hoaxes. Every now and again, I see one of these emails that I'm sure is a hoax only to find out that it's not. Always best to check. wave

What a rotten thing to do to people. I Do know a remedy that everyone should have. I keep an aloe vera plant in my home always. I tripped, one evening and fell toward the woodstove. I caught myself from falling all the way with the palms of my hands. They were burned!!! I did run cold water on them first and had hubby cut some leaves at the base. Then he opened them up like a book and spread them on the palms of my hands. Within 15 minutes the pain subsided and the next day they were slightly red with no soreness. This does work and I did not have any signs of infection. Hooray for Mother Nature!

I have aloe gel too and I drink it whenever I have acid indigestion. It heals ulcers better than any pills.
