Food Coloring In Eye
Not any more: I don't like them either, but each dye gets a thorough going-over as a possible mutagen (the only thing likely to cause cancer apart from preposterously high doses) using the ames test. By 1988, all the apparent mutagens were gone; since then, i've only seen claims of dye mutagens in food (which any good scientist would grab up in a minute) in marginal journals. ...Read more
No: Some people's floaters become less noticeable after an encounter with apple pectin, natural herbs, cookies-and-cream ice cream, watching Spiderman 3, or baking a pan of brownies. Of course, it's just a coincidence, so one must always be wary of anyone claiming he has some great cure to make floaters go away. ...Read more
Eye mucous: Mucous from your eyes can be caused by either allergies or dry eyes. You can try some over the counter artificial tears on a regular basis for several days to see if this helps your symptoms. If you're having more problems, then discuss this with your ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Multiple possible: There are multiple possible causes for undigested food to show up in your stool. These include food intolerances, poor absorption, and too-fast transit through your intestines. If this is happening frequently, you need to see your physician for a full evaluation. If you can identify a particular food, you can know to avoid that. ...Read more
Like red wine?: The color of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications, supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, other factors. Consider supplements consumed, foods frequently eaten, or any other ingestants or medications taken (NSAID's). If blood is a possibility, seek help please. ...Read more
Will eating spicy food cause blood to appear in the stool? Also stinging sensation maybe from overly spicy food that has come out?
No and yes.: Spicy food may cause burning of the anal sphincter but does not cause blood. That is much more likely to come from a hemorrhoid, diverticulus or inflammatory disease. ...Read more
Contacts: If the contacts are causing irritation in the eyes, it may induce some swelling in the eyelids which may look like bags or dark circles under the eyes. You may be noticing the bags and dark circles that are blocked by your glasses frames previously as well. Try cool compresses, artificial tears, allergy meds, and makeup concealers. Something dermal filler and/or laser skin treatments can help. ...Read more
We lost: Red m&m's for decades with the "red dye #10" scare. I marvel about how we play "scare of the week" with stuff like this, yet still have tobacco sold in pharmacies and walmart. Some dyes are carcinogenic, so are nitrites in hot dogs. This means that when fed to laboratory rats, those that get substance x get some form of cancer when 100 times dose is used. Small infrequent use works. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No food will : Make stones go away. But if you eat fatty or fried foods, you will have pain. This is because the gallbladder will contract vigorously. And the stones will get stuck in the neck of the gallbladder. This causes biliary colic, it is painful. If the stone remains stuck and gallbladder gets infected, you will have acute cholecystitis. This can become a surgical emergency. ...Read more
Fatty Foods.: Not normal to have orange oily fat in stools. Body usually absorbs 100% of fats consumed. There is something wrong, either medications like 'orlistat' or Alli, or deficiencies of enzymes are causing this. Sometimes a parasitic infection can cause this. See your doctor about it. ...Read more
No: It's unclear what the "jelly things" were, maybe undigested food. If they were blood clots, seek medical attention. The ketchup did not cause anything. ...Read more
Metallic taste, isolated when in living room, kids have dark circles under eyes, not gas leak or carbon monoxide - any other possible environmental?
Possibly radon: I would have your home checked for radon, especially in basements or crawlspace under living room. Metallic taste and fatigue are symptoms associated with radon exposure. Check with your local public health department about how to test for radon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I get lots of floaters in vision when i eat foods with wheat or msg in them.Even a small amount like in flavoured chips.Allergy or seizure trigger?
Systemic problem: Yellow eyes(sclera icterus) are generally a sign of jaundice caused by a buildup of bilirubin in the blood. The build up could be due to serious diseases and conditions that cause liver damage or dysfunction, blockage of the bile ducts, gallbladder or pancreatic disease, stone or cancer. The person needs to see his/her doctor immediately for exam, blood work and testing. ...Read more
Can food eaten more recently be eliminated faster than food eaten further in the past? (the more recent food pass the older food and come out first)?
No line jumps: Intake passes through the intestines sequentially, so first in is first out, no 'in process' delays or storage. ...Read more
Moderate macular pucker in right eye. objects & letters appear larger in that eye when I cover other eye. Is it because of pucker? Eye prescription is recent.
Can a reaction to lens placed in cataract surgery develop in people with sensitive eyes and allergies to cosmetics, etc?
Unlikely: The lens materia is essentially inert and not reacted upon by our bodies when placed in the eye. Lens implants have been used in millions of people since 1949 and there have only been a small number of reports of reactions. It turns out that the reactions were to chemicals used to clean the lenses, which are no longer used. There's no increased risk in patients with allergic eyes. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
