Does adding crystal light to water defeat the purpose of drinking water?

Does adding crystal light to water defeat the purpose of drinking water?

No, but drink water: It all depends...Water is an ideal drink and there is no real need to have crystal light, it is a choice. Personally, I now try to avoid all artificial sweetners. Your body responds to "fake" sugar in a similar way to the real stuff, just less intense. While people who have a soda a day increase diabetes risk by 50%, dirinking diet sodas increases risk 20%. Stay with water, imho! ...Read more

How much real risk of lead poisoning is there from drinking from lead crystal glass?

How much real risk of lead poisoning is there from drinking from lead crystal glass?

Miniscule: Pouring liquid into a 38% lead glass, and drinking from it over the next several minutes to hours is not going to affect you at all. Exposure risk is increased if you place slightly acidic materials in lead decanters or bottles: acids result in leaching out the lead from the container. Again -- this is a slow process over months -- not days. ...Read more

It is often stored: Most, if not all, glass-bottles have some lead in it, espcially thick, older bottles.

Whiskey that is aged for 12-yrs or longer is even nicer--smooth! Drink responsibly, member52213. Be safe and don't drink and drive. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi on occasion for the past year I have had orange feels sandy, residue in toilet after urination, gritty Like crystals, Drinking water it goes away. Happens usually when I'm nice t drinking a lot. I'm 32 scared it's cancer. Don't see blood?

Urate crystals: That's my bet. It's fairly common. I'm going to assume you're taking no other medications. Keep drinking plenty of water, ask whether a urinalysis to confirm this is in order, ask your physician whether it's worth checking your blood uric acid levels, or whether it's worth taking medication to alkalinize your urine (I wouldn't) which would dissolve the stuff. ...Read more

I have anterior mitral valve prolapse and a kind of arrythmia will aloe crystals be bad for my health as I do drink a lot of medication.

Aloe and mitral v.: There are no indications for the use of aloe in your condition. Prolapse of the mitral valve is generally considered benign but the blood flowing back into the upper chamber (left atrium) could eventually become excessive leading to enlargement and thus more propensity to rhythm problems ex atrial fibrillation.

I have painfull blisters on my tongue fro Crystal meth foodie drink. How do I relieve the pain and get rid? Already tried hydrogen peroxide and no working

Seek medical help: Mouth sores develop from crystal meth due to its caustic nature. Blisters are a result of chemical burn and tissue damage. Hydrogen peroxide will not help and may make it worse. Recommend seeing your doctor and/or dentist for further evaluation and treatment. Keep in mind there are dangerous effects to other organ systems with continued use. Risks outweigh any perceived benefit. Do reconsider. ...Read more

Sweet Teeth?: When taken in small to moderate amounts (no more than 2-3X a week, then whether it's sugar or artificial sweetener, you're probably OK as long your overall diet is healthy. Personally, I'd save it for something better once a week like Tiramisu gelato. Also, there's controversy (check it out on-line) about all those sweeteners. But now and then of anything (as long as it's moral & legal)
is OK with me. ...Read more
