Eating raw rice cause any harm in my future?

Eating raw rice cause any harm in my future?

Not a good idea: Eating anything that is meant to be cooked raw increases chances of infection as if such agents were present they would not be killed without cooking. Rice absorbs fluid and if you eat too much raw rice you can get stomach discomfort as the rice expands in size when it is submitted to fluid contents of your intestinal area and fluid that you drink. Eating raw rice is a bad idea. ...Read more

Ok so my girlifriend took 60mL of zzzquil at once will that cause any harm?

Ok so my girlifriend took 60mL of zzzquil at once will that cause any harm?

Diphenhydramine: That is equivalent to 100mg of diphenhydramine. It is a high dose of antihistamine but standard for some allergic reactions and sometimes motion sickness and unlikely to cause harm in an otherwise healthy person who is not taking other drugs or consuming alcohol concurrently.
Something to know is that diphenhydramine is not effective as a sleep aid (despite misleading advertisements). ...Read more

I have been on zolpidem for about six years now 10 -15 mg a night, will they cause me any harm p?

Habituation ; more: Zolpidem and some other sleeping medications can induce tolerance and habituation -- meaning you'll gradually need higher doses for the same effect, and you'll have withdrawal symptoms if you stop the medication suddenly. Please discuss other options with your doctor. You'll need gradual tapering of zolpidem and you may also have rebound insomnia in that process. ...Read more

I'm currently taking montair 10 since 7 years. Will this cause any harm me in future, what should I do?

None known now.: Montelukast has a good safety record. Remember, though, we don't know the long term effects of lots of new jobs 40 or 50 years later. If you have not had allergy shots (or sublingual drops) to see if you decrease your asthma or allergy symptoms, try that. You may find that you need less of any medication. Of course, get rid of other environmental factors that worsen symptoms. ...Read more

Can drinkin' weight gainers cause any serious health harm (death)? I'm plannin' to take "Optimum Nutrition Serious Mass". Thank you.

Not likely: The biggest issues that come about from using a supplement like this is weight gain. If you are not wise about your training and nutrition you can readily start to gain undesirable fat mass. Otherwise, unless you have diabetes, kidney issues, liver issues or significant GI absorption issues, it likely won't cause you any concerning adverse effects. Best of luck and stay healthy. ...Read more

How does a car seat expire?!? It doesn't make sense. What harm could it cause the baby? And y doesn't the other stuff expire, like the swing and bouncer

How does a car seat expire?!? It doesn't make sense. What harm could it cause the baby? And y doesn't the other stuff expire, like the swing and bouncer

Shell issues/ tech: The plastic shell of seats begins to age when made. They often sit in the car with temperature range from < freezing to >120.This stress turns the plastic brittle, in a crash the straps rip through the weakened shell and baby can be ejected from the vehicle. Improved technology also places older seats in a lower quality category, not a good thought for a precious rider. ...Read more

Can medications cause more harm than do good?

There: Is an inherent risk/benefit analysis implicit in any treatment, including medications. Side effects and adverse reactions (e.g. severe allergic reactions) can occur, although, for the most part, severe reactions only occur in a very small percentage of patients. If you happen to be one of those patients with a severe reaction, the medication may have caused more harm than good. ...Read more

M57, how much raw flex seed I may eat per day. Could it cause any harm if taken in high quantity.?

Stomach upset: Raw flaxseed may be hard on your stomach, since its shell is hard to digest. Although, there is no carved in stone recommendations or restrictions about how much raw flaxseed you can eat, I would suggest 1 table spoon twice daily and I would mix it up with either oatmeal or another food to blend it in. ...Read more

Can pedialyte cause harm to infants?

Possibly: Any product when given in excess could have negative effects. I have seen infants force fed the product develop profuse diarrhea that only stopped when it was limited. If it is given for an extended period with no form of nutrition, the infant will develop starvation. It is a safe and effective hydration solution when used as part of a balanced treatment plan. ...Read more

How much harm can amnio cause the fetus?

How much harm can amnio cause the fetus?

Amniocentesis: An amniocentesis has a small chance of causing a pregnancy loss. That loss is dependent upon the gestational age when the procedure is done. At 16-20 weeks that risk is about 1 in 1600 procedures. As the pregnancy progresses that risk goes way down. In the third trimester an amniocentesis won't cause the pregnancy to be lost, but the baby might need to be delivered. ...Read more
