Does Alcohol Inhibit Bacteria Growth
Most do.: Although there are e. Coli that are resistant to all penicillin-type antimicrobials, these exist mostly in hospitals. Without the antimicrobial pressure in the health care setting, most e. Coli are quite sensitive to most penicillins even ampicillin. Even though penicillin itself is not very useful for e. Coli, really high doses in the "old days" worked. ...Read more

Does alcohol (2-3 beers) interrupt with protein absorption or inhibit muscle growth in any way? I weightlift 5 times.
Yes: Alcohol can be toxic to muscles, poisoning the mitochondria, which are the little energy factories in our cells.

SEROQUEL"quetiapine"raises prolactin levels, does that means protein synthesis is inhibited completely? or insignificantly?will it affect muscle growt
Not likely : Quetiapine has the least propensity to raise prolactin levels (hyperprolactinemia) and therefore is likely to have little or insignificant effects on muscle growth. However, individuals vary in their response to medications and hyperprolactinemia is considered a rare side effect of Quetiapine. You could request labs to measure your prolactin levels. Great question! ...Read more

Curious - does caffeine utilize any p450 enzymes by metabolism? If so, which enzymes and does it agonize or antagonize said receptors? Thanks.
Yes: Caffeine requires liver enzyme cyp 1a2 for its metabolism (oxidative clearance). This enzyme can be inhibited by multiple drugs including luvox, cipro, (ciprofloxacin) cimetadine, verapamil, ranitidine, propofol, flutamide, and mexitiline. Also grapefruit juice can do this. Caffeine can even inhibit cyp1a2 itself. Life is pretty complicated in the liver! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does mastubating affect the body? Is it harmful and does it decrease growth hormone? Does it affect height growth? Please answer me.
No. Some facts...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It is not harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause acne or hair loss, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage vision. ...Read more
Yes it does: Kids who smoke during their greatest growth spurts in their mid-teens are generally shorter than non-smoking matched controls/family members. It effects some people more than others. It also impairs bone healing. Some surgeons will not do orthopedic procedures electively on smokers, and require them to stop before surgery because bone healing is slowed, and there are more complications. ...Read more
Does caffeine inhibits protein absorption in the stomach?does it affect protein synthesis? to what extent?
No evidence of this.: Caffeine should not affect protein absorption much. Since caffeine can cause things to move faster through the digestive tract, theoretically the time available to digest and absorb nutrients is decreased. However, the body overall is very good as digesting and absorbing protein, so this change in speed should not affect much. ...Read more
Folic Acid: Folic acid is a water-soluble b vitamin which is very important for healthy hair growth. However, Folic Acid does not promote new hair growth on its own; its benefits can be enjoyed along with the other forms of b vitamins to encourage health hair growth.
