Word changing: You should see your doctor as this could be a sign of a stroke or dementia. It may also be related to a medication, but your list does not contain any that would generally cause it.

Hi the other day while I was baking. My wrist hit a hot rack in the oven, and I got a pretty bad burn? What's the best way to get rid of the scar?
Depends in deprh: Superficial (1st degree) burns with redness require minimal treatment with an ointment & possible nsaids (if not sensitive). Partial thickness burns (2nd & 3rd degree) with blisters must be treated with topical antibiotics (bacitracin for face - silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) for body) if not allergic in order to minimize the risk of infection which may increase the amount of tissue damage. Sulfamylon for ear eschars. ...Read more

Yes, some!: Depends on the vegetable, the nutrient (vitamins-minerals remain!), and how much microvaved-nuking is down! If properly cooked, most will remain. But the juices will contain some, and should be saved! ...Read more
Not really: It won't damage minerals or proteins at all. Any cooking can reduce vitamin c content some and some other vitamins to a lesser extent. Boiling vegetables in water actually loses more good stuff into the water. The 'pop' claim that microwaving renders food far less nutritious is just something that folks made up because folks are likely to believe scare stories about new technologies. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Which is why some people get into trouble (get sick) when they microwave raw chicken- the microwaves may not penetrate evenly (unlike heat from an oven), and some germs which are always there are allowed to survive. Microwaves should only be used for warming up food, not for cooking - since they cannot be trusted. Better to use an oven, fire or grill -something that we know kills those germs. ...Read more

Got a sandwich and person put on gloves but then touch a phone that was wet w cleaning products then went back to sandwich put in the oven 30mn Worry?
Don't worry: I understand you are concerned your sandwich got exposed to chemicals that could be harmful. The dose makes the poison. I suppose the amount of chemical transferred to the gloves was small, and from the glove to your sandwich even smaller. When did you eat the sandwich? Did you have any symptoms immediately or later? I think you don't need to worry. The worry is worse than the chemical exposure. ...Read more

Possibly: There are growing concerns among some groups that microwaving food alters its chemical structure. Whether these alleged alterations can endanger one's health is still a controversy being studied. If you feel more comfortable using a convection oven, by all means, do so. ...Read more
Not really: Microwaves are pretty safe. Over the life of one microwave, it may give off 5 miliwatts of microwave radiation per square centimeter within 2 inches of the microwave, which is very well below what the FDA deems unsafe. If you stand 20 inches away from the microwave in use, the radiation is only one-hundredth of the value given off at 2 inches. It is unlikely you will have detrimental effects. ...Read more
Hard to tell: Peanuts are high in fat, especially those fried as there is frying oil factor on top of the natural peanut oil. That kind of food may be hard on the gallbladder (gallstones or dyskinesia) that may manifest with abdominal pain. Also, if you have gastritis or ulcer or esophageal reflux, this type of food would be contributing to aggravating the existing problem. Finally, it may be a mere coincidence. ...Read more

Ice: To reduce the pain of a burn, it is necessary to reduce the temperature of the affected area. If there is blistering, allow the blisters to remain intact as long as possible. Depending on the depth and degree of burn, topical antibacterial creams/ointments may be necessary. Infection may increase the severity of the burn. ...Read more
