Can You Give A Child Too Many Vitamins So That Become Sick
Can you tell me if dentists want kids to get cavities so they would have a lot of fillings to do, thus making a lot of money?

Fluoridation, specialized toothpastes ; mouthwashes, and public education all have brought down the incidence of decay over the last 50 years. There is more than enough dentistry to do on adults who ignore their health to keep every dentist busy for a very long time. Think about it. ...Read more

Can starving a child make them wanna eat more because they like to waist food ? Or is it not good for them .
Poor thought: Please never give credit to a small child for adult thinking.They are not little big people.The first year they get all their needs met by adults which makes them feel like kings/queens.As they get older you may want them to "behave" and do what you want but they still think you serve them.They learn to be respectful / behave gradually if you respect & help them.Your suggestion could lead CPS to u ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are good home remedies to give some one drinking a lot without them being too ill and not feeling great or to help settle the stomach?
Don't drink too much: Excessive drinking is a very serious problem. If someone drinks a lot & feels bad it's a message from their body that they are poisoning themselves. I'm reluctant to answer this as saying how to feel better may enable someone to continue drinking too much! that said, taking a good b complex before drinking & homeopathic nux vomica after may help. But someone drinking a lot should get help to stop! ...Read more

To : To maintain your sanity as a mother, you have to do our best and not be overwhelmed by all the things you read on the internet. When i look at topics posted, alot are not based on true science.
