Is sodium lauryl sulfate bad in skin products ? Is using organic or sulfate free products better?

Is sodium lauryl sulfate bad in skin products ? Is using organic or sulfate free products better?

Irritating...: That ingredient makes it a better detergent, perhaps, but also is irritating to skin, eyes. On the other hand, claims about its carcinogenic properties have not been substantiated. Companies are hyping their products as sulfate free to improve their sales. If lauryl sulfate based products are working for you and not causing irritation, I would not worry about that ingredient. ...Read more

Read that Sucrose has very low GI compared to glucose.When sugar breaks in body,only glucose gets absorbed to bloodstream.So sucrose better sweetener?

Read that Sucrose has very low GI compared to glucose.When sugar breaks in body,only glucose gets absorbed to bloodstream.So sucrose better sweetener?

Better = ?: Glycemic index (GI) is how fast a food raises your blood sugar, i.e. the glucose level in your blood. Sucrose has a lower GI than glucose, AND sucrose tastes sweeter than glucose. Also, higher GI is generally considered less healthy. So, I’d have to agree that sucrose is a “better” sweetener than glucose. Note: sucrose is still pretty bad, from a GI standpoint, just not as bad as glucose. ...Read more

How effective is intal (cromolyn sodium) whenused in a nebulizer?

How effective is intal (cromolyn sodium) whenused in a nebulizer?

Fair: Cromolyn is effective for a subclass of patients with asthma. We lack a blood or other test to identify those persons who are likely to respond so you have to try everyone. The trial requires administration 4x/day for 30 days. Its hard for many people to stay on this schedule so some people who might be helped do not benefit. Once shown to work some folks can take cromolyn 3x or twice a day. ...Read more
