I was fascinated and bought 30 berries (the minimum) at $3 a pop from Miracle Fruit Man in Florida.
At home, my boyfriend and I split one berry and each sucked on our half for a minute or two. So, the miracle fruit, at least in our experience, just reverses the sensation of sour (to sweet)–the sourer the taste, the sweeter it becomes. For the flavor-tripping party, I’ll have lemons, limes, maybe some grapefruit (although the chief taste with them is bitterness), and different types of vinegar.

Minor burns are an important emergency department encounter because early treatment affecst the final outcome and keeping up-to-date with current treatment recommendations is challenging. They pose a high medico-legal risk to the clinician and there is the potential for psychological morbidity if scarring occurs. A study from Western Australia (Rea and Wood, 2005) looked at 10 months of minor burn injuries presenting to the regional burns unit. Zone of stasis borders the site of coagulation necrosis, there is a prominent inflammatory response and vascular reactivity that reduces blood flow. Zone of hyperaemia is the outermost area of the burn injury and is characterised by intense yet reversible vasodilatation and increased blood flow. Thermal injuries trigger an intense local and systemic inflammatory response, with increased capillary permeability causing fluids and proteins to leak from the vascular space. Initial first aid should consist of cool running water (2-15A°C), applied for a 20 minute duration. The application of cool running water has been shown to significantly reduce soft tissue damage, hastens wound re-epithelialisation and reduces scaring. Ice should be avoided although effective at relieving pain, can cause a thermal burn in itself to the already damaged epithelial cells.
All alternative therapies should be avoided as effectiveness has not been demonstrated in the literature. In Australia most prehospital provider service have adopted the use of BurnaidA®A dressings — a hydrocolloid type dressing that contains tea tree oil. It is amazing that these product are being used so frequently with very little evidence to support their use. Burns are at high risk of infection as breakdown of the epidermis denudes the body of a strong protective barrier against micro-organisms.
All burns that are contaminated, or have been deroofed or debrided, should be throughly irrigated. Choosing between tap water or saline as the irrigating fluid does not alter outcome or infection risk, although the goal of trying to maintain a sterile envronment means most providers prefer to use saline. This is a controversy that cannot be killed — should you leave blisters alone, aspirate them or de-roof them???
There is limited evidence available to guide clinical practice, which is largely based on expert opinion.
Many specialists now recommend de-roofing and debriding the blister, so the underlying wound bed can be assessed and managed accordingly, and so that any non-adherent de-vitalised tissue is debrided.
Although there are many dressings available on the market to treat burns, there is little evidence to support the use of one over the other. With appropriate wound management partial thickness burns should take around 10-12 days to heal.
The majority of superficial burns do not require a dressing, and should heal nicely with good first aid and A the application of emollient creams (e.g.


Silver has been shown have excellent antimicrobial effects and starts killing bacteria within 30mins of application and last up to 3 days as long as the dressing is kept wet. The dressing has a silver and a blue side — the blue side is placed onto the wound after the silver has to be activated with water for injection (do not use saline as it deactivates the silver). Silver Sulphadiazine (SSD) creams have been commonly used in the past for the treatment of burns, however their effectiveness has been questioned.
There is little evidence to suggest that SSD creams reduce bacterial infections in burns and local hypersensitivity reactions are common. Appropriate first aid and ongoing sterile dressing changes decrease the risk of wound infection.
If signs of infection are present, wound swabs should be taken to guide appropriate antibiotic use. Follow up will depend on the patient’s location, access to a specialised burns clinic and the frequency of dressing changes required.
Remember the burn will look worse 2-3 days after it occurs, so early follow up 48-72 hours after the injury should be arranged.
Burns taking longer than 12-14days should be referred to the burns unit for assessment and to prevent scar formation. Not referring minor burns that are taking long time to heal, placing the patient at risk of scarring and psychosocial impairment. Burns will always look worse the next day, early follow up will detect changes in the severity of the burn. If I may take a few moments of your time to let you know of a tried and tested aid for burns victims, which is now available in Australia.
To the editor, you mentioned that cold water can be effective for minor burns even if immediate treatment does not occur, if there is a minor burn from hot water from a tap, aka a few seconds at say 130-150 degrees Fahrenheit and cold water is applied 20 minutes later, is that effective, often times folks touch hot water and do not feel the need to use cold water, or in many cases, cold water was not available, aka for instance if you go to a food service establishment and the sink water is hot not warm due to a plumbing issue.
Also known as allografts, homografts are surgical procedures that involve the use of organs or sections of tissue harvested from donors in order to treat an injured human being.
