Possibly: Pottery may contain lead in the glaze. It is not advisable to eat or drink from them. Regular use could cause lead poisoning and is definitely not advisable if you are pregnant or for children.

Need antibiotics: Not only do you need antibiotics to cure it but all partners you have had need to be treated. Left untreated chlamydia infections can lead to infertility due to scarring of the fallopian tubes. Also if not treated you will spread the infection to future partners. Males are often asymptomatic or only have brief symptoms of burning on urination. Untreated males will also spread the infection.

No: Fluoride decreases cavities by 60%. Overfluoridation causes extra white spots and occur in children by eating toothpase not generally from fluoridated water(use only a pea-sized amount and only at age that they can spit well - 3 or over). Healthy teeth are crucial to overall general long-term health. Fluoride does not cause cancer.

I nurse at 2 am and again at 6am. She has her rice cereal and falls back asleep. She wakes back up at 11am. Her dad gives her 5 oz of pumped milk (any more and she just plays with it and spits it out)...Read More

My husband and I were trying to conceive for 3 years with no luck. Finally earlier this year we found out my husband had a low/abnormal sperm count.

Thanks. We have often stopped at 4/day for atrovent- but have given 5-6 on some days. Our doc said never give albuterol alone to him.
