Your result may mean an area of nonconduction, which may be a growth, but not likely diagnostic of cancer, especially by this test. ...Read more

To a female doctor: my bf has to have a colonoscopy and was told to have a 2 quart enema and asked me to give it to him, what do I need and how do I give it to him
Did some renos and they knocked down a few old plaster walls that had lime and quartz mortar - no asbestos. Noticed shiny particles in the dust in home still, worried it's the quartz that got in the duct system and we're breathing it in. Dangerous?
The particles you are describing are too "heavy" to be "airborne"....
VACUUM again thoroughly changing vacuum filter often.
If you are still concerned obtain air analysis from a recommended Environmental Quality company!

Should poop out: A person drinking lots of apple juice usually poops out, due to sugars and sorbitol in the apple juice. The person will actually get too much sugar from drinking too much juice (can lead to bad things like diabetes).
