the quality or condition of being resonant ("It is home and family that give resonance . . . to life" ...George Gilder; "Israel, gateway to Mecca, is of course a land of religious resonance and geopolitical significance" ...James Wolcott; "If it lacks resonance, it also better lack your involvement in it, because if something has resonance to you, it'll be good for you."); resonance is meaning, something one feels that is important to embrace (the movies.The Grand Self.and.What If?

rabies.plural noun
an acute, infectious.disease, often said to be a virus.which it isn't, it's a disease of most warm blooded animals, especially wolves, cats and dogs, that attacks the central nervous system and is transmitted by the bite of infected animals; natural treatment people averse to poisonous vaccinations involves this: Comprised with a January 1, 2007 article on rabies from the database of GreenMedInfo.com
When small red beans (azuki bean {also called aduki bean}, Vigna angularis Ohwi et Ohashi) were soaked and warmed in water or saline, the beans began to absorb water to swell and exuded kinds of substances probably as a prerequisite step for seed germination. Such exudate fluids displayed strong anti-infective activity against rabies infections in culture (as in a lab's mixing dishes). On the other hand, little anti-rabies activity was detected in the aqueous extracts from the red beans when tested soon after the extraction from powdered beans, while low titers of anti-infective activity appeared gradually in the extracts during cold storage. In contrast, no anti-infective activity was detected in the exudate fluids from non-colored azuki beans (white azuki), implicating that a certain anthocyanin related substance is involved in the anti-infective activity of red beans. Production of anti-infective and cytotoxic activities were affected differently depending on the bean-soaking conditions. In addition, the anti-infective activity resisted to 10 min-heating in boiling water, while the cytotoxicity was greatly weakened by the heating, suggesting that different substances are involved in the anti-infective and cytotoxic activities. Further studies on the anti-infective activity of the exudate fluids demonstrated that anti-rabies activity of the bean exudates affected not only the very early phase of infection cycle, but the bacterial infectivity was also affected similarly, implicating a possible application of azuki bean exudate fluids to post exposure treatment of rabid dog bite injuries in combination with vaccination.
