What are some good alternatives to caffeine that will increase focus without the gittery side affects. Do you recommend any "smart drugs"?
Try tea Or cocoa: Theobromine, caffeine and theophylline are the main stimulants in tea. It has a similar affect as caffeine but usually you don't get the jitters. Theobromine is the most prevalent stimulant in cocoa. It doesn't give you the same jittery feeling as caffeine but still will keep you up. Try a hot cup of cocoa. Try not to make it with a lot of sugar to avoid the sugar rush and crash. Good luck! ...Read more
Hello, I recently obtained an iq of 117 on a REAL professional test. I know that I'm in the top 13 % But can I call myself "smart"? Some people call high average bright?... I dont know, help?
Why ?: That score is randomly described as in the superior range of intelligence. It is not in the very superior or genius level, but it is above average. If you want bragging rights to be snooty & say you are not average, go ahead & use it. You may find over the next few years that listening is more important that speaking. You are more likely to keep a job & advance if you try to fit in. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My son is 2 & just had chromosome test b/c facial features such as small jaw & high palate &he's not speaking well .He smart understands me well. Dr says just precaution. Are these serious disorders?
Try not to fret.: Some syndromes do not have intellectual disability as part of their neurodevelopmental profile, & some do. The newer genetic microarray tests yield more information than chromosome analysis. Call your state health division's early intervention program for free assessment of all areas of your son's development. He'll benefit from therapy now, even if it's an isolated expressive language delay. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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

Is there any risks of using a smart phone for many hours a day ? If so what are they ? Is there anyway to mininmize them?
There is no..: ...Firm consensus on this yet, with many claiming there is no evidence of harm and many citing increasing amounts of research showing harm. The way to minimize the risk is to get the thing off the side of your face. Use a hands-free device that emits a fraction of the radiation, or hold the thing at least an inch off your head and *not* up against your ear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
