B-12 shots? What are the health benefits to b-12 injections, and is this something i can give myself?

My wife and i are trying to lose weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise, but we have two young daughters and are full time students. We are

B-12 : B-12 injections are only indicated for a specific medical condition called pernicious anemia, whereby the body can't adequately absorb vitamin b12. For healthy people with a normal diet, B12 injections won't do anything. I think you are doing the right thing with a balanced diet and exercise.

I have a small chest & i always wondered if foods that are good for breast health work to increase the growth? What foods would be good to eat?

Surgery: There is no pill, exercise or other "natural" enhancement aid that can give the same consistent, predictable results that breast augmentation surgery with implants can. Eating foods that are "good for breast health" will not make your breasts larger at age 31. If you wanted to consider plastic surgery with implants, that would be the best option.
