Is it ok to eat horseradish on your Arby's sandwich? I am only one month

Why not?: Your question was incomplete. You are "only one month"? I can't figure out that bit. But horseradish is not normally a problem, unless you don't like it. Why would it be for you? Here is a summary on the medical effects by NYU-Langone Medical Center, a great website on alternative medicines, where the .available evidence is summarized and analyzed for validity.

Is horseradish high in vitamin k. There are contradictions on the internet?

Is horseradish high in vitamin k.  There are contradictions on the internet?

Depends on part!: The reason for the contradiction is that the root (the part that is usually eaten) is not high in Vit K (only 2 mcg per 100 grams which is over 3 ounces) whereas the leaves contain 123 mcg per 100 grams- but I don't know anyone who eats horseradish leaves. I advise those on Warfarin to take low doses of Vit K- see http://www.lef.org/magazine/2007/6/report_vitamink/Page-01

I am 7 weeks pregnant & read that there is horseradish in shrimp cocktail sauce & it can cause a miscarriage, is this true?

I am 7 weeks pregnant & read that there is horseradish in shrimp cocktail sauce & it can cause a miscarriage, is this true?

Not likely: Horseradish when used in usual dietary quantities will not affect a pregnancy. To induce a miscarriage (ie. Abortion) would require doses of about 4 ounces taken 3 or 4 times a day for 3 or 4 days. Even those doses are not sure to cause a miscarriage.

When can I feed my baby cheese?

When can I feed my baby cheese?

Smile..er Cheese :-): Assuming no allergies have been plaguing your child, table foods are usually started at 8 to 9 months of age. While baby foods are introduced at about 6 month of age, real honest to goodness table foods are delayed until we know the child is able to chew and swallow well. Cheese is good for kids. Small amounts are started then increased as the child is able to tolerate more volume.

When can you give an infant cheese?

Cheese: Cheese can be introduced between ages 8-10 months. Make sure pieces are smaller than your baby's finger (also size of baby's trachea) to decrease choking risk. Careful also with melted cheese as it may also be a choking hazard. Consider also adding yoghurt at this age. However wait until 1 year of to add whole milk as a replacement for breastmilk or formula.

Is low fat cheese is healthy or not ?

Is low fat cheese is healthy or not
?

Food Questions: We do not endorse products here on this app. There are probably a hundred different versions of 'low fat' cheese. I advise my patients that any product 'low fat' should be avoided since many of them use high content fructose corn syrup to thicken up the product and sugar is the enemy to health. Using the natural products in the percentage that is a healthy diet is always the best plan.

Can i be allergic to cold cheese but not not?

Can i be allergic to cold cheese but not not?

Interesting question: Cheese allergy is typically an allergic reaction to milk or less likely the mold that was used to make real cheese like roquefort (blue cheese). I suspect processed cheese has minimal mold exposure. The heating of foods including milk products can break down (denature) the proteins and potentially make it less allergenic. An allergist could assist in testing to help sort this out.
