“Phthirophagous” what’s that?! Everyone in Portland, Oregon is talking about the 2017 National Spelling Bee! Twelve-year-old Ananya Vinay from Fresno, California, won first place at the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee. She completed 36 ruthless rounds, beat her final competitor, Rohan Rajeev, correctly spelling “marocain,” as he incorrectly spelled his final word, “marram.” Vinay was fairly composed after winning a $40,000 cash prize, especially given that for the last four years the Scripps Spelling Bee has resulted in a tie between two competitors for first place. Vinay was joined immediately by her proud parents who helped the young contestant realize the immense accomplishment of her victory.
Many of the words given to the 2017 National Spelling Bee contestants are commonly unknown by many adults. This year’s words such as “bumicky,” “ascian,” “Klydonograph,” and excitingly for us at Lice Clinics of America Portland the word “phthirophagous” was spelled correctly by the champion. As defined by Merriam-Webster, “phthirophagous” is an adjective used to describe “eating lice.” This word is rarely used today, however, with the implementation of our patented, FDA cleared AirAllé lice treatment, we can safely say at Lice Clinic’s of Portland that the device is certainly a “phthirophagous” machine.
The AirAllé device works simply by blowing controlled heated air on the scalp, the AirAllé device removes not only live lice but also 99.2% of their eggs, unlike any other lice product on the market..
