Not true: Morlicks malted milk drink? No they won't make you grow taller although it has been said to be used by some as a sleep aid. If you've completed puberty you aren't likely to grow taller. Girls complete puberty by ages 15 to 17 & for boys it is by ages 16 to 17. However, if one enters puberty late, they will usually also complete it late. Our height is largely determined by genetics (our parents.

See below : Weekly maximums for alcohol use are 14 drinks for males and 7 for females or males over 65 years old. Anything above this is considered at risk drinking and may indicate a problem. It does not mean you are automatically an alcoholic however unless it creates problems in health, other obligations are missed, there is a desire or attempts to cut down but can't.

Confusing Xrays: Rust in and by itself does not cause tetanus. However, chronic exposure to a cloud of rust particles could cause confusing chest xrays. Particle filters & masks are recommender in occupations where this is expected. Small rust particles can be inhaled into the deep areas of the lung & settle in. Xrays look sickly but patients tend to be asymptomatic. (siderosis).

Depakine Chrono: Depakine chrono is not available in the us, but we have other forms of valproic acid here. It has multiple mechanisms, including increasing GABA (an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the cns). It might also work by suppressing repeated neuronal firing by inhibiting voltage-sensitive sodium channels. It can prevent partial and generalized seizures, including absence seizures.
