Both resolve in a few days with avoidance of harsh roughage, intake of adequate fluids and taking kaopectate to control diarrhea. The odor is nonspecific. If you're having chronic diarrhea, then see your physician or gastroenterologist for testing. Possible Gluten or lactose intolera ...Read more

I have premature irregular heart beats . It's skipping hard when i take a deep breath in everytime. Why? Could it be bc i had half a coke cola?

In the setting of anormal heart structurally these symptoms are more of a nuisance than a danger. Void the triggers. ...Read more
Is drinking sprite better or worse for you than drinking coke over long periods of time? Are darker or lighter sodas a better choice when having soda?

Iron & bismuth can also darken stool. If you've noted this, go see your Family Doc or ER as soon as possible (immediately if weak, woozy, lightheaded, etc). ...Read more

Personally, I think it is a scam to either get more shelf space or be able to argue against BOTH those who think sugar is bad and artificial sweetener is bad. ...Read more
