What to take for dry mouths?

Biotene products.: Dry mouth is a common problem due to the many medications people take that cause this problem. A company named biotene has several products that are useful for alleviating this problem. I am sure there are other brands, too. Sip on water throughout the day as well. Do not suck on candies sweetened w/ anything other than xylitol. Do not sip soda or sugared drinks. Tea & coffee make you worse! ...Read more

I am horrified to see toddlers mouthing mobile phones. What are the risks?

Wow!: Wow, that would horrify me too. So many bacteria/viruses on the phone for one, and all the illnesses that go with it. Not to mention the potential for injurying their teeth and gums. And there is the concern about electromagnetic radiation from cell phones--for an infant especially. And how about the effects of saliva on the phone? I wonder if the iphone 5 is "spit-proof"? ...Read more

In order to lose 50lbs in 6 mouths how long should I exercise for? & how many days week?

Unanswerable : Unfortunately this is not how medicine or physicians work. You do not mention how much weight or height you are; there is no mention of diabetes or other debilitating conditions. But, i would get with a good nutritionist and personal trainer who can keep you honest and work you to the maximum of your capability to lose weight. ...Read more
