I had a tooth extracted four days ago and I was wondering if I can eat normal foods and drink soda, also should I still be concerned about dry socket?
Soda & extractions: After extraction, a blood clot forms to protect the underlying bone. Your dentist advises you to minimize trauma to the area to allow the clot to cover the bone minimizing the chance of dry socket. At four days, the extraction site is still in need of gentle care so follow the post-op instructions for eating and drinking. If you want to drink soda, it is never wise to use a straw. ...Read more

Easy to explain: It makes you sweat more and move less while sleeping. I'm glad you're eager to make a change. You're still young and probably vigorous. Head down to the local gym or sports center, let others see that you're working hard on your body, and they'll accept you as a friend and support you in your body transformation. A lot more is at stake than just the skin in your groin and neck. Best wishes. ...Read more

Etoh: You won't ever suffer an alcohol induced hangover. You won't black out or pass out from alcohol use. You won't be arrested for an alcohol related dui.

TryHeavn'sGrapeJuice: Well, it won't make you feel any stronger in the long run. Some say alcohol stores iron in the body but I don't think that is significant unless you are a lush (like several drinks a day for several years, like, you know, a flaming drunk)The bright side is that wine is made of grapes which contain a fair amount of iron (100gm=2%RDA) and wine has. 6mg/5oz=roughly 10%RDA. But there are better sources. ...Read more
