How many exchanges are in stove top stuffing?

Exchanges??: If you are "into" the exchange plan of eating---it would the same as "stuffing" or one half cup = 2 starches and 1 fat. Personally, i don't believe in the "exchange" program. If it worked well, we would have more success with it--which we don't. The good about the "exchange" program is that it can teach patients about portion control. ...Read more

Does smoke from burnt food (no fire) cause health damage? Pan was left on stove. One year old in house

Not ideal: As basically all smoke has some carcinogens(cancer causing chemicals), granted usually in very small/trace quantities. In small amounts/short exposures, this isn't likely to create any problems. So I wouldn't worry too much, unless this is going to be a very frequent event. ...Read more

Fly eggs on food? I had food leftover on the stove and i noticed white grains on it, i took them off but i observed ate the food.. am i safe?

Probably fine: Remember once you eat something, it's exposed to very harsh conditions in your stomach. It's unlikely that anything concerning that you ate would survive.

Accidentally sat on a stove. How long will it take for the blister to heal?

Accidentally sat on a stove. How long will it take for the blister to heal?

Simple Treatment: With injury to our skin, inflammation occurs which means the area becomes red, warm, tender and with swelling. Swelling occurs under the skin layers and causes them to bulge creating a protective fluid cushion called a blister. As the area heals, the fluid will be resorbed or when no longer needed, the blister opens and it drains. This should take about a week. Keep it covered and protected. ...Read more
