Is there anything that can be done for a dairy allergy that causes fluid in the ear besides to stop eating food with dairy in it?.

Is there anything that can be done for a dairy allergy that causes fluid in the ear besides to stop eating food with dairy in it?.

Forgive my frankness: I would look for some other cause of the fluid in your ear. Get a second opinion. Often no cause is found. And before you decide you have a dairy allergy, get with a real allergist. A "pop" diagnosis of allergy will make your life much more difficult and make it hard to be a good guest. You may never find a cause for the fluid -- usually it's eustachean tube dysfunction. ...Read more

Foods used to be cooked in pure trans fats. Is the buildup of cholesterol it caused in people still there? Or does the body eventually break it down?

Foods used to be cooked in pure trans fats. Is the buildup of cholesterol it caused in people still there? Or does the body eventually break it down?

Transfats get turned: into LDL chol, which in turn gets stuck on the sides of arteries and causes blockage.The trans-fat itself no longer exists in the body after it has been digested. It has been converted to Triglycerides and Cholesterol particles. Some people accumulate the LDL cholesterol in their arteries, others do not. Some people can likely have decrease in buildup if they eat healthy. http://CardioGauge.com ...Read more

What are some food items that are usually unhealthy due to added oil but will not be unhealthy when cooked in Phillips air fryer(due to no added oil)?

What are some food items that are usually unhealthy due to added oil but will not be unhealthy when cooked in Phillips air fryer(due to no added oil)?

Not the key: For decades, the "pop" wisdom is that fried foods containing a great deal of this-or-that type of fat are "bad for you" and this actually matters. Especially for the past 15 years, this is extensively questioned and there's even much skepticism about whether we should ever have taught this. I'd urge you to exercise intensively, eat sensibly, stay trim, and not focus too much on food choices. ...Read more

What is the vitamin in carrots that is supposed to help your eye sight?

What is the vitamin in carrots that is supposed to help your eye sight?

Beta Carotene: Vitamin a and more importantly, its derivatives, are found in abundance in the retina (the film layer of the eye). It is very important for the proper functioning of the eye. What is not very clear is whether eating a lot of foods rich in vitamin a makes any difference in the overall health of the eye, as long as you are not deficient in it. ...Read more

I heard that applying certain juices which contain high amount of vitamin a helps the skin texture to return back to normal, is that true?

Skin quality: A dermatologist is the best person to answer this question so please see one. Having said that, from a natural health posit of view, simply putting sesame oil on the skin is used for skin health. If ok w/your doc, you can also take vitamin E oil or apply it to skin. Coconut and olive oil can lubricate from the inside out. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Does sugar intake actually give energy or is it just the taste of it that people are used to?

Does sugar intake actually give energy or is it just the taste of it that people are used to?

Carbohydrate: Similar question would be if tinder helps start a fire or if it just likes being near smoke. There are 3 broad sources of energy: carbohydrates (=sugars), proteins, and fats. The most easily / rapidly consumable source is carbohydrate. This is why glucose is in the bloodstream of humans. ...Read more

Is the book wheat belly correct? It says that wheat is bad for you and causes people to be fat.

Is the book wheat belly correct? It says that wheat is bad for you and causes people to be fat.

Partly correct but..: I think there's a lot of truth in the book wheat belly but some of the information is distorted, speculative or incorrect. Here is a detailed critique: http://www.Aaccnet.Org/publications/plexus/cfw/pastissues/2012/opendocuments/cfw-57-4-0177.Pdf but it is written by someone affiliated with the wheat industry.

Is it true that intaking food supplements which has a whitening formula can help to whitten the skin? Is thier any chance to whitten my brown skin?

Is it true that intaking food supplements which has a whitening formula can help to whitten the skin? Is thier any chance to whitten my brown skin?

Accept yourself: There are no food supplements that reliably whiten the skin. However, it sounds like you're not satisfied with your own skin for some reason -- and that is sad. All humans have beauty, no matter what color their skin is. They show their truest colors by their behavior -- treating each other lovingly and with respect, or not. The more we accept ourselves as we are, the more we can love others. ...Read more

Is there any early treatment for cataracs symptom? The white kind of fluid that circles the eyes and grows. As far as i know it leads to blindness.

Eye exam: Cataracts are inside the eye, the lens starts to be less clear. If severe enough surgery can be done on cataract with very good vision as a result. The fluid around the eye is the conjunctiva. There are few things that can cause blindness with this. Important to have an annual eye exam to make sure your eyes are healthy.

There's a myth in mexico that says that the best way to get rid of hangover is to eat something very spicy and greasy, like chilaquiles. Is that true?

Capsaicin: The chemical that causes the heat in hot peppers is capsaicin. It triggers the release of endogenous (body's own) opioids--morphine like chemicals. That's why eating very hot food can become addictive (i speak from much perspiration and pleasant experience). This can somewhat reduce the subjective effects of a hangover--but not by much, not the dangers the best treatment is moderation. ...Read more
