In terms of pathogens, is it safer for kids to swim in a public pool or fresh water such as a river?

In terms of pathogens, is it safer for kids to swim in a public pool or fresh water such as a river?

Pool: At least a public pool has chlorine in the water to suppress germ growth. I'm not fond of baby wading pools that permit kids in diapers free access. The river or lake has animal poo full of germs and parasites. ...Read more

My bowels habits have changed from every day like clock work to every other day I am 51 years old and female. I joined weight watchers 6 weeks ago. I am eating more fresh fruits and vegetables then ever, and drinking plenty of water. I am eating all th

The: The changes in your bowel habits are likely a direct result of your dietary changes. Bloating is common when large amounts of fiber are consumed (fresh fruits and vegetables). As good as they are for you, you may need to slowly increase your intake. In addition eating raw vegetables can be difficult to digest thus causing bowel changes.
If it makes you feel comfortable, see your doctor, however this is likely an issue with your diet.
Take care. ...Read more

Please explain why does skin wrinkle in both fresh water and salt water?

Prune skin: According to one study it was once thought that this was because water was being absorbed which caused swelling. However it has now been shown that it is related to " our nervous system was controlling this function by constricting blood vessels under our skin." http://www. Huffingtonpost.

After eating a fresh raw salad and water I feel super full and bloated. Why?

After eating a fresh raw salad and water I feel super full and bloated. Why?

Fiber: Fiber is great in your diet; however, too much can make you feel bloated. 1 head of romaine lettuce has about 13 grams of fiber (USDA as source). Try to split the meal into two smaller portions. Also keep a food diary to see how much fiber you are taking in. If these symptoms are new, then the diary will help identify another cause (possibly from a new type of dressing). ...Read more

If j & j is as gentle to eyes as water why do my eyes burn no matter where I am? Fresh soft hard from many different places.

If j & j is as gentle to eyes as water why do my eyes burn no matter where I am? Fresh soft hard from many different places.

Baby shampoo: Baby shampoo is not actually as gentle as water. That is an advertising slogan. It is more gentle than many shampoos. Try diluting it by half with water before shampooing. It will rinse from your hair more easily and burn less.
Tap water does burn slightly in the eyes, mainly due to differences in salinity. If your eyes burn a lot, you may have inflammation of the surface of the eye, allergy, dryness. ...Read more

Greetings, I would like to ask if I could mix green tea with fresh lime/lemon squeeze water? Will green tea decrease benefit of lemon? Thank you

It will be ok: Hi Tommy,
That combination will be fine. Both of those foods contain antioxidants, which consumed in moderation are beneficial to the body. The only issue would be if you have acid reflux or heartburn. If you have this condition, the combination of the caffeine from the tea and acidic property of citrus may make heartburn worse. Hope this helps! ...Read more

If your hand burn is fresh, from splashed boiling water, should you cover with a cold wet towel?

If your hand burn is fresh, from splashed boiling water, should you cover with a cold wet towel?

Watch for infection: It doesn't hurt to apply cold and wet to a burn - it may actually provide some pain relief. I would then recommend applying plain petroleum jelly several times a day to the area. Depending on the extent of the burn, you may consider evaluation by a dermatologist - we worry about the possibility of infection and scarring. ...Read more

Can I give little sips (30 ml/ day) of fresh tender coconut water to my 4 and a half month baby girl?

Can I give little sips (30 ml/ day) of fresh tender coconut water to my 4 and a half month baby girl?

Why?: An infant at that age needs nothing other than breast milk to thrive. Kids at that age do not relish special tastes (they have poor taste bud function) but any strange material can set of an allergic reaction & trigger enough vomiting/diarrhea to cause dehydration. Do so at your own (or babies)risk. ...Read more

Greetings, I would like to ask if I could mix green tea without sugar with fresh lime/lemon squeeze water for burning fat? Thank you

Doesn't matter: Fat is fuel. It only burns if one's body uses the fuel. That means if a person drinks green tea and does not eat enough calories, his body will burn fat after using glycogen, for energy to survive and move about. Lime or lemon adds only a small number of calories. Otherwise, the only way tea will burn calories is if he uses it for weight-lifting (1 gallon of tea weighs 8 pounds, a decent barbell). ...Read more

My 7month baby refuses to drink water and fresh juices and even milk from bottle is given to him when is in deep sleep. What can I do?

Stop trying: Babies should never be put down with a bottle. In the short term it teaches them bad habits and prevents normal settling into sleep.In the long term it sets them up for destroying their teeth as they emerge. If the kid is not up and alert, it should not be drinking. Sounds like baby knows enough to avoid this issue. ...Read more
