There is a difference

Filed under: General — 2:54 pm

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Psoriasis is a disease whose main symptom is gray or silvery flaky patches on the skin which are red and inflamed underneath when scratched. In the United States, it affects 2 to 2.6 percent of the population, or between 5.8 and 7.5 million people. Commonly affected areas include the scalp, elbows, knees, navel, palms, ears and groin. Psoriasis is autoimmune in origin, and is not contagious.

Cirrhosis is the result of damage to the liver cells from toxins, metabolic problems or other causes.

As the liver cells die they are replaced by fibrous tissue. Other liver cells regenerate in an abnormal manner, forming nodules surrounded by the fibrous tissue. Eventually the entire liver architecture can become abnormal, leading to decreased blood flow.

    It seems like people can’t tell the difference, judging by the title.

    Yeah, something like that.
