Can the skins of butter beans have any nutritional value?

Its Fiber: Fiber, of both water soluble and water insoluble variety, provides health benefits. Fiber accelerates how quickly food transits through the gut.

Beans and protein: Beans are valuable sources of protein, especially for people who eat vegetarian diets. Soaking dried beans in water before cooking them helps remove indigestible sugars that lead to flatulence -- it won't change the protein content. http://tinyurl.com/l4j4go4. ...Read more

What's your opinion on moringa olfeira? I've heard it's great to boost supply and nutritional value of mothers milk but i also read that women of child-bearing age shouldn't take it?

What's your opinion on moringa olfeira? I've heard it's great to boost supply and nutritional value of mothers milk but i also read that women of child-bearing age shouldn't take it?

Not well-studied: It is great for mother to provide breast milk to their infants. There are many health benefits for both involved. However, I do not recommend substances like moringa olfeira because of the lack of data. Does it help, i'm skeptical; could it harm either the baby or mom, not worth the risk. Disclaimer: I am a physician-scientist who likes data. ...Read more

Scrotal lump: What your describing is likely a cystic structure within the epididymis- the structure behind the traits. It is called a spermatocelectomy or epididymal cyst.

I've had a jelly bean sized verruca on my big toe for 3 years. Home freeze treatment and trying to cut it out have all failed, any recommendations?

I've had a jelly bean sized verruca on my big toe for 3 years. Home freeze treatment and trying to cut it out have all failed, any recommendations?

Avoid Scarring.: Warts, especially when located on the toes, can be a little more difficult. With limited skin area and very specialized "thick" skin on the bottom, care must be taken. Techniques that cause damaging or scarring of this skin can create more challenging issues in the toe. Using dehydrating chemicals to reduce the wart size as well as kill small satellite warts helps and often is all that's needed. ...Read more

Ask surgeon: Everyone heals differently and some people have the potential to return to work quicker than others. Depending on your rehab, improved muscle strength and return to a relatively normal/pre-surgical range of motion, these will determine a more definitive date for you. You need to follow-up with your surgeon or at least pcp, to get a best answer of a return to work date. Best wishes. ...Read more
