    Opioids attach to proteins called opioid receptors on nerve cells in the brain, spinal cord, gut, and other parts of the body. When this happens, the opioids block pain messages sent from the body through the spinal cord to the brain.

    Portable air conditioners are a lot less economical than comparable window units and price roughly twice as much. Anything you're purchasing is the flexibility to roll it from one particular home to another or into a closet for simple storage.
