Could these substances(rosa canina l., gycerol, talcum, curcuma longa l., 95%curcumin, capsaicin, polygonum cuspidatum, resveratrol) damage brain?

Could these substances(rosa canina l., gycerol, talcum, curcuma longa l., 95%curcumin, capsaicin, polygonum cuspidatum, resveratrol) damage brain?

Possibly capsaicin: The curcumin ; resveratrol are anti-inflammatory ; anti-oxidant with neuroprotective effects. There is a study suggesting capsaicin may damage neurons in 10 day old rats. I know of no evidence it can damage brains in humans; many eat peppers without obvious signs of brain damage but capsaicin might cause mild brain damage in some: http://onlinelibrary.Wiley.Com/doi/10.1002/cne.902960310/abstract. ...Read more

Is the ingredients mention below suitable for pregnant woman 1) Collagen peptide 2) perilla seed extract 3) silk protein 4) soy isolfavone?

Forget this stuff.: Take your prenatal vitamins, folic acid, calcium and Vit. D and nothing else. All of those products are poorly studied and there is very little responsible, independent testing to determine if they actually work or if they may have side effects, or harm fetuses. Also the companies have different ways of making up these pills. Save your money and spend it on plenty of fruits and veggies instead. ...Read more

Thickened Small loculated left pleural effusion 4.2mm which is not aspirable What it can be??

Thickened Small loculated left pleural effusion 4.2mm which is not aspirable
What it can be??

Loculated pleural: This is most likely related to infection unless a trauma has recently occurred and then this can be related to secondary infection of a pool of blood that collected in the chest called a hemothorax. If it is only 4 mm this is too small for aspiration and usually will be treated with antibiotics/observation and CT to rule out malignancy which I am assuming has been done. ...Read more

Consequent to TXs: TB is opportunistic in the sense that it strikes in people usually immuno compromised or suppressed. Depending upon the types of treatments you've been given for your cancers the immune system may have been weakened thus allowing the tuberculosis to get in.

What is Concentric LVH wherin LVEH is 63% & FS is 33% There is also Mid & apical part septum hypokinetic & Pericarditis/.What is the seriousness?

Too many queries: But I will answer as fully as possible: concentric LVH means "thickening of wall" of left ventricle (main pumping chamber of heart) due to excess pressure, usually high BP. Could also result from aortic valve stenosis. Check your BP and get it under control. Second, "mid and apical part septum" HK suggests one wall of LV not squeezng well. Not sure how reliable your test was....Last pericardits, ...Read more
