Ask your doctor...: Different practices have different policies. Perhaps your doc is stating that he wants up to 3 days to process refill requests. In other words, don't wait until bottle is empty & then call in expecting same day availability of medications at pharmacy. In fact, regardless of office, it's not a bad idea to ask for refill once you can guestimate number of pills remaining, especially if using mailorde ...Read more

Dr.: Dr. Edderai has given you a good source to answer you question. The use of fluroride in our daily lives have become a very controversial and emotionally charged issue with some activists going to great lengths to search for and highlight possible adverse effects of the mineral. Most of their claims are not backed up by valid peer reviewed research. Also understand that if you eliminated every food, drug and environmental product that has harmful side effects you would be left with little in the way of effective treatments for the diseases known to man and there would be significantly less in the way of food for the world to eat. The bottom line is that life expectancy is rising across the world, due in part to the advances made in health care products.

I have included two additional links to help you. ...Read more

How often can I allow myself a treat? No health issues, love my chocolate or nuts daily

Every day-moderation: There is no need to limit nuts, as they are among the healthiest of foods, though raw unsalted nuts may be healthier than salted roasted nuts. Almonds & walnuts are especially healthy. Chocolate is actually good for you if it is dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa solids- probably up to 2 ounces a day. If sweeter chocolates then consume less. If a food gives you joy then enjoy it in moderation. ...Read more

What is the best method for not allowing noise to bother/distract/irritate me in my apartment?

Various: Meditation, deep breathing exercises for relaxation, distraction with music by headphones, masking the sound with white noise (eg the sound of a fan, of an fm radio set to a frequency where there is no radio signal, or a white noise app for a smart phone), complaining to the landlord, and moving are all methods I have used in my own life.

Could the fda allow bugs in our food?

Could the fda allow bugs in our food?

Unclear: I'm not clear on your question. The FDA does not allow pathogens or bugs in the food supply. However, there are so few food inspectors that they can't inspect everything. So, yes, it is possible that "bugs" get into the food. The FDA was created in the early 20th century because real live bugs would be in the meat supply - read "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. ...Read more
