Yes: Emergen-C is perfectly safe to give to 12 year olds. The main ingredient is 1000 mg of Vitamin C. While this exceeds the recommended daily intake, there is evidence that the optimal dose is much higher and 1000 mg is a reasonable daily dose for most people. See www. Lef.

Joseph is a healthy 9 year old. He coughed up specks of blood in his sputum first thing this morning. What is the cause?
See Your Doctor: 9 yr old, "coughed specks blood this morning". It is important to determine if the blood was actually from the lungs vs. Upper respiratory tract. There is no other data given however sinus congestion/throat clearing over night can result in cough & can produce flecks of blood. It is important to have your child checked to make this determination. See your doctor for correct diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

Was my surgery on my finger necessary? In september 2010 I smashed m finger and I went to st. Joseph hospital because the cut in my finger was about two inches long and showed what appears to be bone. The hospital doctor reviewed my finger and a upon a s
It is very difficult in an open from such as this to answer your specific question. So I can not do that. What I can tell you is that a laceration on a finger that crosses the creases or folds at a certain setoff angles will initially not sam to affect the finger but with regular healing lead to a contracture (or tightening) of the scar and creases. The case of a laceration and missing skin that is closed tightly, this may occur too. One way to prevent this tightening is to "break up" the scar with additional inciosns at special angles to the laceration or scar and or add skin of skin graft. Even in this situation with a well applied and oriented skin graft and a well done surgical release of a tight scar, further tightening an contracture can occur. So it may seem that initially a finger feels loose, but later feels tighter. One has to ask, "what if the skin graft wsa nver done? " and the answer may be that if it were not done that the finger would feel even worse than it does now.
If someone has a result of a procedure that they are not happy with, the best thing is to go back to that doctor or seek the advance of another and see if anyitng else can be or needs to be done rather than question the need for the first procedure. Bu hopefully by reading the previous paragraph you you understand the complexity of this situation and that while initially a finger may seem looser, it can tighten up just by the direction of the scar that forms.
Finally there are other factors, general health, compliance, motion, pain, smoking, alcohol, genetics and many other factors that affect scar and scar tissue formation. Some are prone to keloids, others to dupuytrens contracture. Some have subtle arthritis in a joint adjacent to a scar while others have a concurrent joint injury (a sprain) that leads to increased stiffness ...Read more

I am 23 years old. Will I grow more inches taller at this age if I practice stretching exercises? I f yes. For how many minutes must I do them?
No: Bone growth occurs at a part of the bone called the growth plate (near the ends of the bones). The growth plates "close" (basically disappear) in men between the ages of 18-21. After that time there is no way to grow taller. Stretching may improve your posture to help you stand more straight but it is not possible to grow any taller. ...Read more
Is it an acceptable practice to perform cardio exercises (about 20-30 minutes) on fasting days when going through an alternate-day fasting program?
Carefully: It is acceptable. It does need to be done with mindfulness. An example of this is in professional football players of muslim faith who practiced during ramadan where they fast from sun up to sun down. Often practices were two times a day. No ill effects were noted. Having said this choosing a time when exercise can be done when heat/ humidity is low is preferable. Hydrate well days off fast. ...Read more
