Hello Doctor, I'm Aman Raj from India. I'm a studen of MBA. I'm suffering from cholesterol problem. Please guide me. Thanks a lot in advance. (:?
Unclear question: What is the cholesterol problem? A general approach to good health is : Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats.

We're vegetarians, but still eat pretty unhealthy. For the new year my goal is to go vegan (plant based and raw).Please tell me about the benefits.
Benefits unproven: There is much research showing benefits of a vegetarian diet but little research on the additional benefits of a raw vegan diet. Proponents claim it's the best possible diet. It has been shown to often reverse diabetes.I believe eating mostly plants is extremely healthy but don't feel raw is always best for everyone. Make sure to take b12.

My son is four and hasn't started talking and is globally delayed. How rare is this and is it possible for him to catch up.
Maybe, maybe not: Clearly the kid is delayed in the area of communication and it will take some skill to assess his learning skills and determine how to best bring out his capabilities. School systems under "child find" are supposed to identify and assess delayed kids. A visit to a child development center may be needed to sort out his complex case. Your pcp should be able to refer you. ...Read more

Dr. Edderai has given you a good source to answer you question. The use of fluroride in our daily lives have become a very controversial and emotionally charged issue with some activists going to great lengths to search for and highlight possible adverse effects of the mineral. Most of their claims are not backed up by valid peer reviewed research. Also understand that if you eliminated every food, drug and environmental product that has harmful side effects you would be left with little in the way of effective treatments for the diseases known to man and there would be significantly less in the way of food for the world to eat. The bottom line is that life expectancy is rising across the world, due in part to the advances made in health care products.

It's a guideline:
Walking 10, 000 steps a day is not an "official" recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency recommends adults engage in 150 minutes of moderate activity a week, such as brisk walking. To meet the CDC's recommendation, you need to walk about 7, 000 to 8, 000 steps a day.
