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

Do people who smoke mary jane really lose brain cells?

Do people who smoke mary jane really lose brain cells?

Brain function: The research is equivocal about actual brain cell loss with use of marijuana. (mri scans don't show this.) however, brain function definitely changes for the worse while under the influence -- and possibly longer, especially with chronic use. Http://www. Drugabuse.

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

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

All stress tests miss the Ds; only detect complications of advanced Ds & ↑ infarct events.

Was diagnosed in Jan. W/ new LBBB. Stress test & labs normal, no further testing. Now have SOB and pounding heart when lying down. 39 yo fem smoker.

More workup: A normal stress test is reassuring and means you have time to look into this problem further. LBBB is not normal and suggests that you might have a structural problem with your heart. An echocardiogram (an ultrasound scan of the heart) would be a good idea to make sure there is not valve problems or heart enlargement. Your GP can order this. Cutting down smoking or stopping is really important! ...Read more
