I was told using an ipad or laptop every day, all day is really bad for the baby because or the radio waves. Is this true? What effects could it have?

I was told using an ipad or laptop every day, all day is really bad for the baby because or the radio waves. Is this true? What effects could it have?

None: No scientific evidence exists showing harm to a fetus from radio waves. That is not the same thing as saying there is no risk. Research is being done on use of cell phones and brain cancers> to be on the safe side , put some distance between the laptop and your abdomen. (e.g., sit at a table rather than putting the laptop on your lap.). ...Read more

Condiloma acuminatae inside urinary meatus. I had 5 interventions with laser, radio waves or electrocauter. No effect.  Continue to appear.

See below: May need to see urologist to have urethra (tube from bladder to meatus) checked for lesions & treated. Perhaps intra-urethral Aldara (imiquimod) (imiqimod) combined with laser etc will eliminate virus causing lesions. ...Read more

Is Veregen (sinecatechins) cream appropriate to use even when gen.warts are gone(removed with radio waves) or it is used only when there are still existing warts?

Is Veregen (sinecatechins) cream appropriate to use even when gen.warts are gone(removed with radio waves) or it is used only when there are still existing warts?

For treating warts: No point in using this $1000 ointment if you have no warts. If you do have warts there are several treatments, none of them as effective as we would like. The only prevention is the vaccine. This does not help get rid of existing warts. You may wish to get the shot to protect you from other genital wart viruses not already in your skin. ...Read more

I had condiloma, removed them with radio waves. My gyn.suggested that I now use Veregen (sinecatechins) TO PREVENT warts to appear again. Should I buy this medicine?

I had condiloma, removed them with radio waves. My gyn.suggested that I now use Veregen (sinecatechins) TO PREVENT warts to appear again. Should I buy this medicine?

NO: NO! It is to treat warts. NOT TO PREVENT THEM! Costs $1000!!!!!!!!!!!We have no med to prevent warts. Imiquimod cream (Aldara) 5% may be best treatment with least chance of recurrence. I often use combinations of treatments. Your GYN must have received samples with glowing claims but no comparison with other treatments and no mention of cost. ...Read more

Is thermage fda approved as a cellulite treatment? I read that thermage is a cellulite treatment that uses radio waves to shrink fat cells and cause my skin to produce collagen. Is this treatment fda approved to reduce cellulite and stimulate collagen pro

Is thermage fda approved as a cellulite treatment? I read that thermage is a cellulite treatment that uses radio waves to shrink fat cells and cause my skin to produce collagen. Is this treatment fda approved to reduce cellulite and stimulate collagen pro

FDA Cleared: The fda approves medical devices based largely on safety (rather than both safety and effectiveness as for drugs). Therefore, we should not view the fda approval of thermage as a guarantee that it does all that it is purported to. For devices, fda clearance states that the device is not likely to harm you if used properly. Unlike drugs it does not imply that it is effective. ...Read more

Is it right for a woman after a miscarriage to treat simple cervical erosion with signs of chronical inflammation by means of radiowaves?

Antibiotics r better: Antibiotics in the form of cream or pill works far better than "radio waves" as a Rx. The cervix does not have a "receiver" or "antenna" to treat the problem that you have. In other words, "radio waves" won't work. ...Read more

Do millimetre wave body scanners at airports produce radiation and is there any danger?

What are the danger of mobile waves when using for along period of time in pregnancy..Is it harm to baby?
My wife due date is 22-5-2013..
Thanks

Good question..: Cell phone use has dramatically increased during pregnancy with little to no evidence it is safe. It is interesting to note that it coincides with the dramatic increase in autism spectrum disorders and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder - although no evidence to link these facts has ever been scientifically proven. I would advise minimizing use of cell phones, laptops around pregnancy sac! ...Read more
