You would be surprised to know of all the things you give permission to harm you.
From old ideas and concepts to the food and medicines you willingly take each day.

When you are searching something on line, you usually type in the word or words related to the subject you need to find info about, you usually press the key “return” or “enter” or “send” , depending the device you are using and, you just wait for the list of results to appear.
