None: If you use toothpaste as intended, there is no danger. Get over your obsession about tooth paste being a poison.

A 45-year-old member asked:

Should I limit my fluid intake before delivery?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
No: Good hydration is important throughout and before pregnancy. A healthy person manages fluid intake by controlling fluid output through the kidneys. Though there are conditions that can interfere with this, most people can do with a wide range of fluid inputs. Dehydration, in general, is bad.
A member asked:

Will my hoarseness improve if I restrict intake of cold drinks and cold foods?

Dr. Irwin Berkowitz
Specializes in Pediatrics
No: Hoarseness has no relation to the type of food or drink. Actually fluids are helpful in most cases of hoarseness. The usual causes of hoarseness are viral, allergic or improper use of one's voice causing a strain on the vocal cords and possibly singer's nodules.
A 21-year-old member asked:

I've developed a high tolerance for a drug. Does this mean i'm less likely to overdose?

No: It may mean you are more likely to overdose since it will require more drug to achieve the same desired effect. The best way to avoid overdose is not to take the drug in the first place. Believing one is safe from overdosing is the fastest way to end up overdosing.
A 32-year-old member asked:

How long after ingestion of parasites does it usually take for someone to show symptoms of toxocariasis?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Booth Wainscoat
Infectious Disease 21 years experience
Difficult to say: The best evidence comes from measuring larvae in the organs (liver, brain, eye) of mice after feeding them toxocara eggs. The liver may be infected as soon as 7 days after ingestion. The brain takes longer & the eyes are the last to be infected. Infection is more likely with frequent ingestion of large amounts of eggs. Many people never get infection after ingestion.Some may become ill years later.
