Why take Glucon?: If you are not diabetic it probably does not cause harm but it is not clear why you are taking Glucon-D. It is a highly concentrated Glucose supplement. There is not a clear health benefit of using this. If you are worried about low blood sugar discuss with your doctor so that testing can be done. Drinking juice or eating food would likely have more beneficial effects ...Read more

Is it bad to drink out of a plastic water bottle after it has sat out for awhile and gotten warm? I've heard it is.

Is it bad to drink out of a plastic water bottle after it has sat out for awhile and gotten warm? I've heard it is.

Probably bad because: Plastic water bottles contain hazardous chemicals and trace amounts leach into the water. When bottles sit in the water that will increase the leaching of these chemicals into the water (though the common idea that dioxins leach into the water is a myth). I advise not using plastic water bottles. It is far better to use glass or steel water bottles filled with filtered tap water. See comment:. ...Read more

Should i be concerned if i drink 5 bottles of water each day . 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle . Is it bad ?

Should i be concerned if i drink 5 bottles of water each day . 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle . Is it bad ?

Probably not: However, are you drinking 5 bottles of water because you are thirsty or because someone thought it was a good idea? Unless you have a history of kidney stones, you should be fine to drink somewhat less than 2.5+ liters of fluids (5 bottles of water + other sources of water). For most patients, a total daily intake of 2L of fluids should be more than adequate. ...Read more

I was wondering is drinking lightly salted water every day bad for your health?

I was wondering is drinking lightly salted water every day bad for your health?

Salt water drinking: a rinse of salt water is a good astringent for the gums and mouth and good for ulcers. I would be concerned about total salt intake. Can make a big difference in hypertension and heart disease in the future. I think people can become addicted to increasing levels of saltiness. After giving up added salt many people complain that prepared foods are "too Salty" ...Read more
