    Task-
    In this Web Quest, you will imagine that you are a doctor working an overnight shift in the emergency room. A 13 year old boy comes into the ER on his 3rd consecutive night without sleep. As one could imagine, three days without sleep can do a number on a persons well being, and the boy tells you he suffered a concussion 4 days prior during a soccer game. He is afraid to fall asleep because his grandmother told him he will die if he falls asleep. Your task is to use the following 5 sources to prove to the boy that he is able to fall asleep without worrying.
    ResourcesResources-
    https://www.marshfieldclinic.org/news/cattails/2014-winter-cattails/medical-myth-busters-concussions
    This source establishes what a concussion is and it's symptoms. It relates to the question "should you sleep with a concussion?" By expressing that it is the only way for the brain to heal itself. It is ok to sleep with a concussion if you are awake and able to hold a conversation following the concussion.
    ...
    https://www.brainline.org/article/what-should-you-do-if-you-think-you-have-had-concussion
    This source stresses the importance of full cognitive rest. That means no reading, texting, watching tv or any other mind stimulating activities before bed. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as the blow occurs to then be diagnosed and be able to get a fast recovery.
    https://www.chop.edu/pages/sleep-and-concussion
    This source gives tips on how to get a better nights rest especially after suffering a concussion. You should sleep the amount of time required for your age group as well as having a strict sleeping routine.
    Conclusion-
    Generally, it is ok to sleep with a concussion. If it is a young child suffering the trauma then it is best to wait until two hours after the incident to put them to sleep. They should be woken up every few hours to ensure that their condition has not gotten progressively worse. Those that shouldn't go to sleep after a concussion are those that have dilated pupils and trouble walking, which means their brain is impaired. They should immediately seek medical attention.

    How Poison Ivy Affects the Body:
    https://science.howstuffworks.com/life/botany/poison-ivy2.htm
    - when the urushiol from the poison ivy plant touches the skin it is taken in through the pores and the body begins to fight the foreign substance through inflammation. The macrophages that eat foreign substances damage the skin while doing so, causing inflammation. Unlike most allergic reactions this response is not immediate. Typically people do not see the effects of poison ivy for a few hours, some never see the side effects. Not everyone will get a reaction the first time they come in contact with the plant.

    Introduction
    There are many medical myths that are believed by most people. Many people believe medical “facts” that their parents told them, most have no tuth. Many medical myths got started because of a slightly true fact or they are based on an instance that was a coincidence. One myth is that cell phones cause cancer. This myth was created because cell phones send out signals using RF waves, which is a form of radiation. Is this radiation enough to cause cancer?
