19 weeks pregnant and been eating microwave popcorn a few times a week. Someone said the lining in the bag could cause miscarriage or damage to baby. Is this true? I never heard this before.

19 weeks pregnant and been eating microwave popcorn a few times a week. Someone said the lining in the bag could cause miscarriage or damage to baby. Is this true? I never heard this before.

Not likely: The main risk is from inhaling diacetyl fumes and most who got sick did so through occupational exposure. Many manufacturers have since removed diacetyl from their microwave popcorn. You can make your own microwave popcorn by putting plain kernels in a clean brown paper lunch bag, fold the top over a few times, and heat on the popcorn setting of your microwave. Add melted butter if you like. ...Read more

Is microwave oatmeal still nutritional? It's been suggested to me that its so processed that its better to find something else. Are 'they' wrong?

Stick w/ whole foods: Microwaveable oatmeal is typically loaded with sugars. There is debate whether microwaving foods causes degradation of nutrients. I think it can break down vitamins because of the high heat and microwave radiation. You can always boil water in the microwave and add it to the oatmeal or use regular. ...Read more

I walked by a broken piece of popcorn ceiling. If I breathe near it or touch it could I be affected by asbestos?!? So scared I was too close...

I walked by a broken piece of popcorn ceiling. If I breathe near it or touch it could I be affected by asbestos?!? So scared I was too close...

Stop worrying: You're not going to get asbestos on board from walking by asbestos that's not being actively tossed into the atmosphere. These old ceilings, even those that actually contain asbsetos, don't release the stuff. Despite all the silly, political stuff especially from the 1980's, they post no danger. Even if you're around one when it breaks, the exposure is trivial. ...Read more

Sounds: Sounds like she probably had a seizure. Even if she returned to her normal self after this event, you need to bring her to an emergency room as soon as possible. There is no way for anyone to tell you for sure if she had a seizure or didn't, solely based on what you remember happening. She needs to be evaluated by a neurologist and get a brain scan (eeg.) if she has a primary care doctor that will arrange for that to happen in the next day or two, you may be okay with staying out of the er. If she doesn't, then, please bring her to an emergency room. The next seizure she has could be while walking up stairs, driving a car, holding a baby, or any number of scenarios where a seizure could result in awful consequences. ...Read more

It: It sounds like you have lost your appetite. It is crucial you stay hydrated and keep your body nourished. Per your questions, you have not taken in enough calories, which can also contribute to an upset stomach, due to digestive acids in your stomach. Also, the longer you go on without nourishment, your actual stomach organ can shrink.
The loss of appetite can be attributed to stress or having many things on your mind.
If you have other concurrent symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, fever or abdominal pain, see a doctor. Also if your appetite does not return, I recommend you see a doctor. ...Read more
