Not the shower type: It isn't necessarily the shower type that matters rather the type of room that you are in.

Granted, a more stable shower can also provide a lot of support, the type of tub should not keep you from seeking shelter. ...Read more

1yr+ shadows on wall behind dryer are actually black mold; intake ambient air = sporesin clothes. Allergy. symptoms 3+mo. Cleaned safely. What are my risks?

1yr+ shadows on wall behind dryer are actually black mold; intake ambient air = sporesin clothes. Allergy. symptoms 3+mo. Cleaned safely. What are my risks?

Low risk: Black mold is problematic for people with definitive allergies to the mold but, if you're not allergic to the mold just being in the same room with the mold without disturbing the mold should not pose a health risk. There's a lot of hysteria about "black mold" perpetuated by companies that charge exorbitant prices to eradicate it...it's not a big health risk. ...Read more

Child should be ok: Fish oil caps are intended for maintenance use and if mercury content was high, it would not be safe for adults either. About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more

Child ate chicken nuggets in restaurant that slight undercooked some pink inside. Was told they defrosted properly before cooked. Risk of getting sick?

Child ate chicken nuggets in restaurant that slight undercooked some pink inside. Was told they defrosted properly before cooked. Risk of getting sick?

Low risk but: If your son feels well, does not have fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea or cramping abdominal pain you are ok. The infections that can be transmitted through undercooked poultry include campylobacter, salmonella, enteropathogenic e-coli, and norovirus, Commercially sold poultry is closely managed by the USDA but there have been occasional reported outbreaks of salmonella from chicken that was frozen, suggesting the freezing process does not render salmonella non infectious. Should there be a risk, there will surely be enough affected members of the community to trigger an investigation. ...Read more
