Do all prescription meds come in child safety proofed containers?

Do all prescription meds come in child safety proofed containers?

NO: Many times they do, but not always. Problem is - that even 'child proof' containers are more 'child difficult' then proof and children still have been known to access them.

Locking dangerous medications up is the best way to insure children are restricted from access. ...Read more

Besides the obvious risks, is there any harm caused to an unborn child by riding a motorcycle (vibrations) while pregnant (first trimester)?

Besides the obvious risks, is there any harm caused to an unborn child by riding a motorcycle (vibrations) while pregnant (first trimester)?

Unlikely to matter: Once your placenta has a firm attachment in the uterine wall, the developing embryo/fetus is well protected against repetitive vibrations. I have had mom's teach their jazercise class for the balance of pregnancy & never miss a beat. Occasional mom's with an unstable pregnancy, odd placental attachment or other issue may be advised to maintain a quiet lifestyle, but that is an exception. ...Read more

Should owners of motorcycles register for organ donation?

Should owners of motorcycles register for organ donation?

Everyone should!: Aren't you really asking whether motorcycles are so dangerous that the consideration of end of life issues is appropriate? Truthfully, we should all think about the unpleasant topic of our own death, and what we prefer to happen with our own body.
