Do people who smoke mary jane really get dumber?

Do people who smoke mary jane really get dumber?

Actually some very: Smart folks smoke mj, but they act very dumb while under the influence. They think they are profound and brilliant, but they really are just stoned. Many not so smart people smoke, and they do not get any brighter afterward. It can be psychoaddictive and can tempt you to smoke and do nothing else. That is indeed not productive, if not dumb. ...Read more

I have tumor on left temple for a few months... it is 1 inch across and 1/2 inch high. Can I split the skin and take it out my self? Jane van Dis

Try to remove: Depending on age, the most common cause of a large painless nodular lesion of the temple is keratosis. These lesions never bleed since they represent accumulation of skin in layers and at times can be peeled off. Other nodular lesions like an amelanotic nevus would bleed if irritated as would be true of an exophytic squamous malignancy. ...Read more

Thanks dr. Jane van dis, I took the 1st pill around 11 hours after unprotected sex. So how will be the pregnancy chance?

Thanks dr. Jane van dis, I took the 1st pill around 11 hours after unprotected sex. So how will be the pregnancy chance?

Timing is everything: It looks as if you took the pill very quickly. So your chances at preventing pregnancy are good. Likely you have a 60-75% chance of preventing a pregnancy. This assumes, by the way, that were ovulating when you had the unprotected intercourse, and were going to get pregnant. It's possible that you had no possibility of getting pregnant because no egg was release or available for implantation. ...Read more

Good morning doctor I have horrible pain on all my teeth, not decayed. Why and what can I take for relieve. Jane?

Gingival recession: You may simply have gingival recession. The roots of our teeth are sensitive to: cold air, cold water, sugar, metal and other objects, etc.
If this is the case, try a desensitizing toothpaste. In fact, try several-they have different formulas and not a single one works for everybody.
In a severe case, a dentist can desensitize your teeth. ...Read more

9 weeks pregnant and constipated. I drink water and gatorade. And Jane been eating bran cereal. Haven't had a normal bowel movement for about a week.

9 weeks pregnant and constipated. I drink water and gatorade. And Jane been eating bran cereal. Haven't had a normal bowel movement for about a week.

Include more fiber: In diet! Gatorade is mainly sugar, and not so great for electrolyte replacement. There is something with less sugar called Vitamin Water, but what is even safer is coconut water (fresh). That was used in WW2 to treat wounded soldiers IV! In any case, call your OB/GYN for further direction, and eat more cooked greens and veges. Better to use organic steel cut oats, than bran (GMO). ...Read more

Joke has been that grandmas can spoil the kids but should they?

Joke has been that grandmas can spoil the kids but should they?

Of course: Grandparents have the luxury of indulging their grandchildren if they are not the primary caregivers. They take care of these kids for brief intervals, and can provide goodies that the parents forbid. This is not malicious but simply an expression of love without the daily responsibility. In most families, the grandparents are deeply beloved by their grandchildren and this helps. ...Read more

What happens if I can't find a suitable health insurance plan by jan 1 2014? Do I have to pay a fine?

What happens if I can't find a suitable health insurance plan by jan 1 2014? Do I have to pay a fine?

We all work together: Insurance means everybody chips in so that there is a pool of money to pay for each person's illnesses. It works when everyone comes together and pays into the fund, and when only a few people are ill at any one time. There is a fee (to encourage everybody to participate, because we all get sick at one time or another) for not having insurance in 2014. Maximum fee for 2014 is 1% of one's income. ...Read more

It depends.: This could be normal, depending on how old your daughter is and when she had her first period. If it is possible she is pregnant, obviously she should be tested for that. Otherwise, it could be secondary to changes in eating, weight loss, exercise level or, if it is within the first 2 years of having her period, a normal occurrence. ...Read more
