Confused question: Are you 70 kg (154 lbs) or 70 (175 cm) inches; are you 174 lbs or 174 centimeters? If you're 70 kg and 174 cm, then your proportions are very healthy, and you are already thin. Reduction mamoplasty (surgical or liposuction) may be the only option. Please be more specific. ...Read more

Good role modeling : Since you are the parent, you determine what foods come into the pantry. Select good foods for your family. Eliminate eating out, eat meals together without distractions such as tv, and lastly, eat healthy yourself. Children are marvelous imitators. They model the behavior they see and do what we do not always what we say. ...Read more

Is age 27 to old to decide that you want to become a doctor? Only have 2 year degree. Should i forget about it?

No: 27 is not too old. I've heard of people in their 50s and 60s starting a medical career and succeeding at it. Age is not a limiting factor. It'll probably take you a while to get there but you can do it with personal and financial investment. ...Read more

Maybe 5-8 years: It is hard to find research on that particular issue, but there are tests that a Pulmonary Specialist can perform (FEV1, lung capacity, arterial blood gases), that could check how good your lungs currently are. For long time smokers, 10-15 years to reduce risk of lung cancer to normal population. ...Read more

If you are 58 years old and you smoked all of your life, at what age would you get cancer ?

If you are 58 years old and you smoked all of your life, at what age would you get cancer ?

No set answer: However, this is a common age to develop it...And also a perfect age to stop since the risk will continue as long as the person smokes. The reverse of this is that the risk of developing lung cancer goes down significantly after quitting for 5 years and is the same as a non-smoker by 10 years...So now is the time to stop! ...Read more

Prenatal vitamins: Prenatal vitamins are typically full of b vitamins especially folate (folic acid) which if taken prior to getting pregnant lowers risk of spinal tube defects. Some studies suggest benefit to fish (oil) but that data is still early. Otherwise, best to check w/your family doc or OB for their specific recommendations given where you live & your specific medical, surgical & obstetric history. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I am 5'8" and want to grow taller but I am 20 yrs old years old and people keep telling me men stop growing after age 20. Is our body not as effective?

What do you suggest if I am 5'8" and want to grow taller but I am 20 yrs old years old and people keep telling me men stop growing after age 20. Is our body not as effective?

Wishful thinking: Unless the family has a tendency toward late growth, most male growth is done by 17-18. Linear growth continues until the growth centers close, (17-18 in most) some will have slower closure of the centers and continue at a slow pace to 20.An x-ray of the wrist and hand can be assessed for growth centers and determine if growh is still possible. ...Read more

Can I lose 50 kg in 2-3 months I'm 100 kg 176cm 18 years old . so if it possible can you give me diet plan for that . I want to be a model?

Not so fast: It will take longer than 2-3 months to lose that much . You are best able to keep the weight off if you lose about 2 pounds per week which would mean 50 KG in a year. A balanced 1200-1800 calorie diet with daily exercise should allow you to reach this goal. A dietician can help you with food choices and meal planning. A coach can help with an exercise program.Combine aerobic and weight lifts ...Read more
