TIDBITS® LOOKS AT

SKIN

by Janet Spencer Each square inch of skin contains about 20 blood vessels, 650 sweat glands, 100 oil glands, 65 hairs, and 1,300 nerve endings. Come along with Tidbits as we appreciate the skin!

THE BASIC FACTS

• The skin is the largest organ in the body and accounts for 15 to 20 percent of body weight. The skin serves four purposes: to protect the body from injury and invasion; to sense the surrounding environment; to regulate metabolism by storing fat and controlling salt and water content through perspiration; and to control temperature.

• The skin is a very efficient temperature control device. When you are hot, blood flow to your skin increases and you start sweating. As your sweat evaporates, it cools the blood in your skin. When you’re too cold, the opposite happens: blood flow to the skin is reduced so that it won’t contact the cold air and lose heat. Sometimes the skin sacrifices itself through frostbite in order to keep your blood warm.

• The skin of an average adult human if peeled off and laid flat would measure about 10 square feet. The epidermis, which is the top layer of skin, is about twice as thick as a piece of paper. The cells of the skin are some of the most active in the entire body. Turn the page for more!

FAST FACT

Cells in muscles and nerves never die. On the other hand, cells in the skin and the gut live only 18 hours before dying. White blood cells live for two weeks; red blood cells for one month; and liver cells two months. THE WHYS and WHEREFORES

• Researchers theorize that one of the reasons humans walk upright instead of on all fours is because it is cooler. Walking upright reduces contact with the hot desert floor, exposes less skin to direct sunlight, and allows air to circulate more freely around the body. Humans don’t have hairy fur because on the African savanna, heat retention was not necessary. The loss of heavy fur reduced the need for water in a desert climate.

• Vitamin D acts as a catalyst, producing proteins that allow minerals such as calcium to move through the intestinal membrane and into the cells. Vitamin D cannot be formed unless it is activated by ultraviolet light. Sunlight does not contain vitamin D; it only activates it. Cats and dogs, when they lick their fur, ingest body fat that has been irradiated on their fur. This serves as a source of vitamin D. Black skin acts as protection against sunburn and skin cancer, while white skin allows enough ultraviolet light to pass through the skin in cold climates where people wear heavy clothing most of the year and their exposure to sunlight is limited.

Women in History:

EMMA EDMONDS

• Oriental people have an extra flap of skin on their eyelids which gives them a slant-eyed appearance. Why? Anthropologists theorize that it protects against cold and glare, helping them cope with bitter, cold winters. Their noses are flat to minimize exposure and reduce risk of frostbite. Their nostrils are narrow, which helps warm up cold air. Their faces have an extra layer of fat to act as insulation, and a layer of fat on the eyelids also acts as a barrier to the cold. SUNBURNS

Sun is bad for your skin. The redness of a sunburn means that your skin has actually been injured and the damage doesn’t disappear when the redness does. It accumulates. Even if you’re

• Sarah Emma Edmondson was born in New Brunswick, Canada in 1841. As a young woman, she fled an abusive home situation and changed her name to Emma Edmonds. She wanted to cross the border into the U.S so she dressed as a man and changed her name to Franklin Thompson. The disguise was so successful that she ended up enlisting in the Union army at the start of the Civil War, retaining the alias Franklin Thompson.

• She was an excellent soldier and served in many capacities. She worked as a mail carrier, nursing attendant, orderly, and stretcher bearer. She stood with her regiment at Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Manassas. But her greatest contribution was as a spy. • She had many disguises. Once she disguised herself as an Irish peddler woman, claiming she was selling apples and soap to the soldiers. This afforded her access to the Confederate camps, where she chatted with her customers and gathered intelligence about upcoming campaigns. Another time she dyed her hair and skin black using berries, soot, and silver nitrate and got a job as a black laundress in a Confederate camp. She just happened to be standing next to a Confederate officer when a packet of important papers fell out of his

SUNBURNS CONT’D

well tanned, sunlight will still cause your skin to eventually become tough, dry, and leathery. The ultraviolet rays in sunlight also promote skin cancer because they impair the immune cells - the same cells that usually attack cancer cells. Many people, when they get a sunburn, say, “Oh, it’ll turn into a tan in a few days.� But exposure to sunlight activates the pigment which takes about three days to reach the surface of the skin, resulting in a tan. So it’s not the burn turning tan, it’s just the pigment finally showing up. Unlike a tan, a sunburn shows up immediately. Some light-skinned people can burn in 10 to 20 minutes. MADE IN THE SHADE

When a friend of Harvey Schakowsky developed skin cancer, Schakowsky was alarmed. He learned that one way to prevent skin cancer is by wearing protective clothing. “What IS protective clothing?� he asked. Nobody knew. So he decided to look into it. Testing different fibers, he found that a typical cotton T-shirt will block only 50 percent of harmful rays from the sun. After some experimenting, he developed a fabric that blocks 99 percent of ultraviolet B radiation and 93 percent of ultraviolet A rays.

EMMA EDMONDS cont’d pocket unnoticed, and she safely delivered the valuable information to her Union superiors.

• One of her most successful episodes of espionage came when she again disguised herself as a male slave by dying her skin. The Confederates put her to work on the fortifications at Yorktown, Virginia. She worked hard and made many sketches of the fortifications which were then smuggled to Union headquarters. The information she gave greatly assisted General McClellan in capturing the town. • Her escapades ended when she contracted malaria in 1863 and requested a furlough, which was denied. Not wanting to seek medical attention from the army for fear of discovery, she left her comrades in mid-April, never to return. “Franklin Thompson” was subsequently charged with desertion. • When she recovered from the malaria, she wanted to return to the army, but was afraid to do so after seeing “WANTED” posters listing Franklin Thompson as a deserter. Instead, she dropped her male disguise and went to work as a nurse. • She wrote and published her memoirs, Nurse and Spy in the Union Army, the first edition being released in 1864. It sold well, to the tune of 175,000 copies. Edmonds donated the profits from her book to various soldiers’ aid groups. She subsequently married and had three children. • In 1876, she attended a reunion of the 2nd Michigan and was warmly received by her surprised comrades. They joined with her in petitioning the government to have the charge of desertion removed from her military records, and supported her application for a military pension. After an eight year battle and an Act of Congress, “Franklin Thompson” was cleared of desertion charges and awarded a pension of $12 per month in 1884. • In 1897, Edmonds was admitted into the Grand Army of the Republic, the only woman member of this organization of Union Civil War vets. One year later, on September 5, 1898, Emma Edmonds died at her home in La Porte, Texas. In 1901, she was re-buried with military honors at Washington Cemetery in Houston.

BACKWARDS THINGS Evangelist Jim Brown maintained the “Mr. Ed” television theme song conveyed a satanic message to unwary listeners. “ ‘A horse is a horse’ when played backwards contains the message, ‘the source is Satan’ and ‘someone sung this song for Satan,’” Brown maintained. OOPS! • In Iowa, hundreds of highway signs warning of deer crossings were distributed. The signs pictured the deer with their antlers backwards. • At the San Onofre, CA, nuclear plant, the 420-ton reactor vessel was installed backwards. • So much mail was being sent to Mount Tabor, South Carolina, when it was intended to go to Mount Tabor, North Carolina, that residents in South Carolina dropped the Mount from their name and spelled Tabor

backwards to become the town of Robat. • At the end of World War I, Marshal Ferdinand Foch dictated the armistice to Henri Deledicq, a military clerk from French headquarters. In the wee hours of early morning, the sleepy clerk put the carbon papers in backwards. As a result, the Armistice agreement signed on November 11, 1918 in the railway car near Rethondes had signatures on the bottom of an agreement that was printed backwards. No one even noticed. BACKWARDS WORDS • A man named Muldoon led a gang of street thugs that kept the entire waterfront area of San Francisco under their tight control in the 1870s. A newspaper wanted to end their tyranny but was so intimidated by the gang that they dared not use Muldoon’s real name. They spelled it backwards and changed the N to an H— and hoodlum

Q: My 8-month-old kitten has the odd habit of carrying around a “blanky.” At night, she sleeps curled up with it. During the day, she carries it with her wherever she goes. I’ve never heard of a pet with a security blanket. Have you? - S.H., Montreal, Quebec, Canada A: Your cat has Linus syndrome (actually, that’s just a made-up name based on the Peanuts cartoon character famous for dragging around a security blanket). The “blanky” you describe does appear to function as a kind of security blanket for your pet. It’s likely your cat also likes the feel of the blanket. She may or may not outgrow this attachment. If the behavior bothers you, it might be possible to substitute something else (such as a soft dog toy) for the blanket. At least, as your cat drags her blanket around the house, she’s helping you dust!

HAND FACTS CONT’D

finger joints cease moving, the wrinkles disappear.

• The skin on the palm of your hand is unable to tan. THE DIMPLE DEVICE

Patent #560,351 was issued in 1896. It was a device for producing dimples. The rig resembled a hand drill and it was used to “massage the cellular tissues surrounding the spot where the dimple is to be produced.” All one needed to do was merely to put the “knob C of the arm A on the selected spot on the body, the extension D, together with the cylinder F, put in position, then while holding the knob N with one hand the brace ‘I’ must be made to revolve on the axis X. The cylinder F serves to make the skin surrounding the spot malleable.” This contraption was also handy for “nurturing and maintaining dimples already existing” in case you were worried about them disappearing.
