Doctor insights on:
Why is it bad to mix, alcohol with soda ( coca cola, sprite, etc.) coca cola with vodka? Or coca cola with rum?
Hydroxycut: Well, to put it gently, you are comparing bad (coffee & soda) to worse (hydroxycut). Hydroxycut was taken off the market at one point as a result of reports of liver problems, seizures, and rhabdomyolysis. It is an herbal supplement and therefore not regulated by the fda. Not that coffee and soda are good for you, but if i had to choose, i would pick that over hydroxycut. ...Read more
Not especially: Used moderately, drinking some beer or wine can be enjoyable and not dangerous to you.

Yes: The decaffeinated form of green tea is the recommended type. Green tea should be used with caution if you are taking medications or have pre-existing medical conditions. Like all herbal supplements, it should also be used with caution in children under 2 or pregnant or lactating women. ...Read more
Both are bad: Mixed drinks and beer are the same after a fashion. The rule is alcohol in the drink. Making a mixed drink, you may get more alcohol in the drink than the 1oz the drink calls for. Beer can vary with alcohol by volume (german weiss/wheat beers versus american lagers). So neither is better. ...Read more
Not really: At a listed age of 20 I suspect you have finished your linear growth. Caffeine or energy drinks you may have consumed along the way have less to do with your height than parental height.You are expected to grow to the average of both parents plus 2-3 inches. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
