Can opening a peddle bin when you're holding a plate of food in front of it cause germs from the bin to land on the food if you are quite close to it?
Not Likely : Unless material stuck to the lid flew up onto your plate, it is nearly impossible for any germs to infect you. Try not to worry about germs. The best thing you can do to protect yourself is to WASH YOUR HANDS frequently and before eating. Brush teeth twice a day for 2 minutes. ...Read more

Dry eyes are your: top issues when you are working at a computer 40 hours a day nonstop. You aren't using your blink reflexes, and your eyes are drying out. So use a post it note saying, 'BLINK!' and use nonpreservative lubricating drops (artificial tears) to help your eyes be less blurry!Do give your eyes a break and blink or close your lids too.UR blink reflex basically turns into staring at a screen for 40 hours! ...Read more

Possibilities: There can be many possible causes for this situation, and i hope you'll see your psychiatrist very soon about it. Sometimes pain medicines can increase depression; so can alcohol. Emotional events may occur that have an impact on you, throwing you back into depression. Sometimes the diagnosis is wrong and needs closer examination. Dose increase ; psychotherapy may be needed as well. ...Read more
Am 18years of age, honestly bt sorry to say this, i hav bin mastubating 4 2years nw(4tyms aweek)nd i feel it has realy affected my body system.E.Growth?
Masturbation: I hate to disagree with you. But, masturbation is a normal and common part of the human condition. Every boy and man you know masturbates or has masturbated. Masturbation has no negative health or medical effects. Your frequency of masturbation is also not abnormal. Some boys your age do it several times/day. Please i would wish you no shame for this normal part of being alive. ...Read more

My 4.5 year old boy is sleeping and his hart rate is 120 a min is it a concern he has also bin sleeping most of the day?
Pulse ok: but a little faster than expected for a child his age while sleeping. Of more concern is why he is sleeping most of the day. Mild fever, slight dehydration or mild infection will cause the pulse to increase proportionately, but in itself doesn't explain his sleepiness. Infection?? Headache?? Please get him evaluated if he doesn't improve. Meanwhile, push fluids. ...Read more

I was pushin on my cervix n ibelieve might bin doinit wrong cuz ifelt it beein pushed on 1side more than the other n now that side bothers is it broke?
Please don't: Don't worry , you didn't break anything. I don't know where it got started, but this year the vogue seems to be for women to check how 'high' their cervices are. This is the worst way i can think of trying to track ovulation: it's difficult to check and means nothing. Counting days, bbt, opk, even checking cervical mucus makes more sense. Good luck. ...Read more

Higher testosterone: The signs of puberty; growth in height, increasing body hair, and change in voice, can continue for several years, into the 20's. These changes are caused mainly by increases in testosterone levels. There may not be any connection with masturbation, since that is a very normal activity for both young men and young women. Higher testosterone levels are connected with higher levels of sex drive. ...Read more

Is there is any exercises that will increase my bines length ? and is it true that calcium will help lengthen my bones i want to increase from169to175
You may have made: a typo. I think you, like many young and not so young males, want to increase your penis length. Don't fall for scams. Staying neat and clean and being respectful of others is the best way to be attractive, not length. Calcium alone is not good, leads to stiff arteries and calcium deposits. it won't lengthen bones. You need vitamin D3 w/calcium for it to be safe and bone-strengthening. ...Read more
