Why did j&j stop manufacturing reach floss for sensitive gums?

Why did j&j stop manufacturing reach floss for sensitive gums?

I would ask them: Companies can discontinue products for a number of reasons. Poor sales, unavailable raw materials, etc. Can lead to the extinction of your favorite products. Don't give up on flossing just because of that. There are many brands/varieties of floss out there and try them one at a time until you find one that you like. Btw, I don't know what j&j does to floss to make it work better on sensitive gums. ...Read more

Want to apply to medical school and eventually become a spine surgeon I have a past felony drug conviction for manufacturing and delivering cocaine and criminal conspiracy should I not even waste my time or is worth my time to pursue this career as a surg

Want to apply to medical school and eventually become a spine surgeon I have a past felony drug conviction for manufacturing and delivering cocaine and criminal conspiracy should I not even waste my time or is worth my time to pursue this career as a surg

While: While a clean record is not an absolute requirement to become a surgeon, it certainly helps. There are several obstacles to becoming a surgeon with a felony conviction. First, you would have to convince a medical school admissions committee that you have the character and traits they are looking for in an applicant. At the end of medical school, you would need to convince a orthopaedic or neurosurgery residency program that you have the character and traits they are looking for. As both orthopaedic and neurosurgery training programs are extremely competitive, this history does put you at a disadvantage. For both admissions processes, it is typical to ask about any prior convictions.

Even if you were to navigate medical school and residency successfully, you would still need to become licensed by the state you want to practice in, and obtain certification by the drug enforcement agency (dea), and possibly by the state controlled substances board. The dea and states may have specific restrictions preventing licensure with a prior felony drug-related conviction.

Before proceeding, I would recommend that you check with the dea and with whichever state you want to possibly practice in about their laws regarding licensure in your circumstances. ...Read more

Why don't manufactures just make fire safety furniture and mattress, instead of poisioing smokers?

Why don't manufactures just make fire safety furniture and mattress, instead of poisioing smokers?

They do: If the only problem with smoking was that you might set your place on fire, there wouldn't be much said on this issue. Many items of furniture are treated for fire resistance but are unlikely to withstand the heat of using them to support a lit cigarette. Smoking is so bad, in so many ways that perhaps you can use this concern to quite smoking altogether. ...Read more
