Is it true that if u take a teaspoon of vinegar a day it would bring your blood pressure down?

Apple cider vinegar: There are no good human studies to suggest apple cider vinegar is a useful treatment for bp. There was one done in rats which suggest it could help - but what that means for humans is unclear. On scale of 1-10 in terms of usefulness, i'd give it a 2.... If you wanted to try it, why not...

I have a strong vinegar acid smell discharge coming from my vagina can it be my birth control pills or high blood sugar level? Or anything else?

Bacterial Vaginosis: You probably have a vaginal infection caused by bacteria instead of the more common yeast infection. The most common symptom is a smelly vaginal discharge. It may look grayish white or yellow. A sign of bacterial vaginosis can be a "fishy" smell, which may be worse after sex. You need a pelvic exam - a smear can diagnose this infection and it's easy to treat with antibiotics.
