Plastic Bottle Caps Dialysis
My 14 yr o son developed a habit of chewing on plastic bottle caps and the plastic ring of ther bbottle. Health effects, chemicals or reason for urge?
Toxins are in: Plastic. Don't panic but try to get him to switch to something else, e.g., gum, mints, etc. Never microwave food w/saran wrap. It releases the toxins. Please don't drink bottles of water that have been sitting around. The toxins eventually migrate to the water. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more

Rec: to replace this habit. ...Read more
I swallowed a plastic water bottle cap, I don't feel sick or anything but I'm worried I won't poop it out.?
Wouldn't worry on it: If it made it passed your stomach entrance it will most likely pass & you may not even be aware of it. If you want to hurry it along you can eat stewed okra, which forms a congeal around such objects & softens the edges. ...Read more
Please help I was chewing on a plastic bottle cap and spit landed on my arm and then I wiped my eye and the spit got in to my eye will I get herpes?
Yes but other toxins:
Many plastics are BPA free;you can tell by checking the recycling symbol: those with 7 are high in BPA but 3 and 6 are also quite toxic.1, 2, 4 and 8 are safer- see https://healdove. Com/misc/Plastics-to-Avoid
However, many BPA-free plastics contain BPS or BPF which may be just as bad. No plastic bottles are entirely safe. See http://time. Com/3742871/bpa-free-health/ and

Glass safer: The linings of baby bottles had bpa (bisphenol a) so nih & epa reviewed 700 published studies on bpa, the levels currently found in humans is higher than the levels causing adverse effects in animal studies.

Yesterday I was having a great mood of sex but my partner was not here so I used a plastic small bottle but now it has gone inside how to take it out?
Vaginal foreign body: Fortunately when things get lost inside the vagina, it's not that difficult to get it out. I suggest squatting, relaxing your muscles as if you're taking out a tampon and see if you can pull the bottle out. If there's suction to the opening gently try to break the suction with your fingertip. ...Read more
Yes.: Yes. I do this with plastic bottles I carry on my bike all the time. However, clean immediately after drinkoing it. It is much easier to clean and reuse. ...Read more
Yes but: Most bottled water is really tap water put in bottles. There are many studies showing the composition of the contents of these bottles and you will be paying a lot for what you can get from your faucet at home. Check 'consumer reports' on google for data on this. Bottled water is convenient but does not usually have the health benefits advertised. A few think their are toxins in the plastics. ...Read more
Plastic can melt: I would think lukewarm water and soap would be better for a thin plastic like a recyclable bottle, but for a hard reusable bottle hot water should be fine, especially if it is "dishwasher safe" ...Read more
E-mail scare: Thanks for asking. It would be surprising if this were true in a nation with huge numbers of science people studying products as intensively as they do. This looked like a scare e-mail, science-talk but withholding key facts, and I'm ready to trust the folks at harvard http://www. Health. Harvard. Edu/fhg/updates/update0706a.Shtml. ...Read more
Perhaps: The question of whether dehp used in the production of many plastic containers has toxicity for humans after chronic exposure remains unanswered. Some reports say definitely not; others say perhaps. There is evidence of chronic toxicity in laboratory animals. Use your prudence & your good judgment. There are alternatives to plastic water bottles. I use an aluminum bottle. ...Read more

Ok so my 13 year old brother was shooting around a plastic "Aquafina" cap and it just so happens that it landed on a hot lightbulb he inhaled it a bit?
Yes: Yes, it is totally safe to give babies liquids in plastic bottles these days. Almost all plastic bottles are bpa free these days, so you shouldn't be worried about bpa. That being said, bpa in humans has yet to be found to cause any proven problems. ...Read more

Safe? Yes needed? No: Plastic bottles from deer park or aquafina are fine for single use. However, there is nothing inherently safer about bottled water that you can't get from your tap. Especially if you have a refrigerator filter or a faucet filter like brita. It's much more economical for you and the environment to have a special stainless steel thermos they can use, or bpa free plastic one. ...Read more
