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.

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
