Doctor insights on:
How can single walled carbon nanotubes effectively shuttle drugs molecules attached to it into cells? What happens after they enter?
That is probably: a good question for a molecular biologist. ...Read more
It's a Greenhouse: Gas. It traps heat in the atmosphere and causes climate changes, ice caps melting,sea levels to rise, more energy for stronger storms( turn on TV) ...Read more
depends: There are many different molecular forms of carbon and hydrogen connection. The amount of hydrogen can be almost zero such as in diamond and graphite and as much as 2 * 10 to the 19th in methane. Other carbon hydrogen molecules will have same amount in between. ...Read more
Carbon Dating: Is that 'activated' carbon or just charcoal pills?Sounds like you may have some sort of stomach problem in addition to gout. Well,if that 'carbon' is'activated'(check the label)it's probably latching-on to the febuxostat so it won't be absorbed by the stomach. Therefore you are not getting much of it into your system. Better check with the doctor who prescribed the febuxostat -and watch your diet! ...Read more

Stay with it!: You need to call or see your doctors for these answers. I would need medical records of your recent conditions before I could help. ...Read more
Incomplete combustio: Generally, it's formed from incomplete combustion of fossil fuels. In chemistry, a hydrocarbon should burn in oxygen to carbon dioxide and water. However, other by-products may form such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen, and sulfur containing compounds. Carbon monoxide is dangerous because it preferentially and more tightly binds to hemoglobin molecules than oxygen. Cells can't use co so they die. ...Read more
50%: This varies, but 50% would be lethal for most people. However, small children, an unborn child, and elderly would be more susceptible to lower doses. Carbon monoxide binds to blood cells causing caboxyhemoglobin which makes the red cell unable to oxygenate. At 10 to 15 % most people will be symptomatic- headache, fatigue, flu like symptoms. As the perecentage increases so do the symptoms. ...Read more
CO Detector: Carbon monoxide (co) is colorless, odorless, and lethal in adequate concentrations. It requires a specific detector, most of which are independent from a traditional "smoke detector, " but some brands are combination units. They are strongly encouraged for sleeping areas. ...Read more
Yes: For the vast majority of carbon monoxide exposures the symptoms are reversible. However, for people who have significant altered mental status the likelyhood of some type of permanent damage is higher. ...Read more
Hurts O2 delivery: Carbon monoxide acts by keeping red blood cells from picking up oxygen so it hurts you by starving the body for oxygen. Once the co separates off the red cell it starts working again and theprocess stops. If the lack of oxygen was severe enough to cause damage to parts of the body it will take time for that to be repaired, but otherwise there shouldn't be long-term problems. ...Read more
They don't help: Such tablets don't change a person's metabolic rate, nor affect her body's functions in any noticeable beneficial way. On the other hand, if she spends money buying the tablets, then she has fewer dollars to spend on yummy, sugary snacks... so buying the tablets might improve her health that way, by decreasing sugar intake... but that's pretty far-fetched. ...Read more
Check consumer sites: I suggest checking consumer review sites such as consumer reports or consumersearch. You can also see reviews on amazon or get information by talking to a local heating contractor. ...Read more
