Does Mental Health Have Anything To Do With How Smart You Are
Yes it does but -: Maybe in ways you may not have thought. Understanding problems may come more readily and so may solutions because you are quick to get the ideas that mental health diagnosis and treatment are based on. That makes sense. What doesn't make sense is how many very intelligent people have mental disorders and either don't know it or believe they are immune to such a thing & don't do anything about it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A combination of genetics and family history, culture and life experiences, and physiological health factors are all factors that contribute to one's experience of mental health. Unfortunately, the general term of mental health is often stigmatized and perceived as a negative; however, mental health includes positive aspects of health and well-being, including one's resilience, adaptability, and ability to ...Read more
No. Lots of sugar.: Smart water *sounds* like it's healthy but it's not. One bottle has 7 teaspoons of sugar, even more than 12 oz bottle of coca cola [though i'm not saying that you should drink coke instead]. Plain water is healthiest. Crave flavor? Add a slice of lemon, lime, orange or cucumber. Make your own iced tea [flavored green tea or herbal tea]. Only thing smart about it: makes your pocketbook smart. Ow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are electromagnetic fields (EMFs) dangerous to human health? Am concerned due to local power co's new smart meters being installed on homes in my area
I say you're safe: The "independent medical thinkers" have been alleging horrible health problems caused by these fields for four decades without a single decent study that isn't loaded with recall bias. There's no animal model, no real theory as to why they're dangerous, and the field generated by your beating heart affects you more. By now, the NIH research piranhas would have found any danger that's real. ...Read more

Can a mentally challenged person operate a vehicle? My co-worker is like this, yet he is smart enough to operate a car just like normal people. How?
A relative spectrum : Mentally challenged does not automatically mean an individual is challenged in all facets of his or her life. Your co-worker is presumed to be a functional mentally challenged individual as (s)he is able to work along side you. As long as your co-worker's driving does not pose a dangeror to self or others and is driving with a valid driver's license, there should be no problem. ...Read more
My son is 2.5 year old and i want him to be smart andhealthy. Which is the best food for him at this stage to make him physically and mentally strong?
Lucky boy! : I should probably refer you to my daughters, because they, like you, are much more attentive to their sons' diets than i was to theirs. However, i did teach, "eat when you're hungry; stop when you're full." introduce a variety of legumes (peas) & other vegetables early & model good food choices yourself at sit-down family meals. Avoid "fast"& pre-packaged foods, random snacking & sugary drinks. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
