How do fire-eaters survive?

How do fire-eaters survive?

Not well: Fire "eaters" do not get burnt because they pass their burning devices into parts of their body well lubricated with liquids and oils which are slow to heat and protect the underlying tissues.

Otherwise, you could end up feeling resentful of the other person you've been trying to be "flexible" with. Healthy relationships involve 2 people, both worthy of consideration and care. ...Read more

Is it ok that my baby is a slow eater?

Growth curve?: If your baby is gaining weight appropriately and reaching his or her developmental milestones, that is the most important.

My friend eats food in secret. Is it an disorder?

Could be: If it isn't one yet- it sounds like its on the way to becoming one. I would be concerned about bulimia. They would be the ones to hoard food in private and vomit.

What would happen if someone undergone ECT but didn't need it?

Likely nothing: How was it or should it be determined that they didn't "need it" if they were recommended it be done? I'm thinking the psychiatrist made the recommendation. I can't imagine a PMD such as an internist simply "ordering it" and that a psychiatrist would do it without an evaluation and agreeing that it was an appropriate intervention. ...Read more

If a man eats very little vegtables can that cause bad health?

If a man eats very little vegtables can that cause bad health?

Probably not: In one natural experiment, the gauchos of argentina in the mid-1900's ate nothing but meat and seemed none the worse for it.

Will tri sprintic work as the same as plan be if I take extra?

Will tri sprintic work as the same as plan be if I take extra?

Not the same: There are other methods that can work similarly but the best bet is for you to go to the pharmacy and pick up plan b. This should be done as soon as possible after unprotected intercourse and definitely within 72 hours. If you have a prescription for tri-sprintec, the question is really: why aren't you taking it to avoid this situation? There are other long acting contraceptives, may be better. ...Read more

Influenca A how long does this last I'm so sick coughing ect?

Coughin'ToTheCoffin: Yeah. Can be a frustrating mess. If you are a normally healthy person you should get over the flu in about a week. Two tops. But...that cough can set-in and persist, sort of like a rash that keeps itching, so you may need a strong prescription cough medicine so the lung tissues can settle down. But--if you're still coughing-up junk and feel lousy you should be evaluated in person by a doctor ...Read more
