What is the ?: If you were having angina - cardiac chest pain after activity - you should have been calling 911, getting ems or going to a hospital, and not sitting at your computer typing. Tylenol, salonpas and xanax are not the right treatment for an impending myocardial infarction. See your doctor about your chest pain and work on reducing your risks - smoking, overweight, high fat/cholesterol. Take aspirin. ...Read more

Will i consume a significant amount of iron if i cook with a cast iron pan that's a bit rusty? Should i take care to remove the rust or is it safe?

Will i consume a significant amount of iron if i cook with a cast iron pan that's a bit rusty? Should i take care to remove the rust or is it safe?

No , not hygenic: Your are not going to get iron over dose by using iron pot , orally body can not absorb more than a 1mg / a day , elemental iron the pot has can not get absorbed need to be ionic iron , it is unhygienic to eat with rust , clean the pot , wash it throughly then use it , you will be fine. ...Read more

If a baby injest a tiny amount of rust dust, will that be a hazard?

If a baby injest a tiny amount of rust dust, will that be a hazard?

No: At most, the baby might cough a bit, but injesting it into stomach will not cause problems. You would have to eat a whole lot of rust before it would be toxic in any way. Just a little GI irritation if ate it, a bit of cough if inhaled it. ...Read more

I shaved and knicked myself, after i noticed the blade had a spot of rust. Will i be okay?

I shaved and knicked myself, after i noticed the blade had a spot of rust. Will i be okay?

Should be fine...: Knicked skin from shaving can be treated the same way, regardless of whether the razor is brand new or has "a spot of rust". One can wash the area with soap and apply a little bit of first aid ointment (like neosporin), and add a bandaid if needed. ...Read more
