Hot water safety?

Clarify

Water
Hot water can burn. In the house with small children it is recommended to have the thermostat on the hot water heater decreased to 120 degrees to prevent burns. This prevents burns. Don't jut get in a tub of hot water if you haven't tested to see how hot it is. Basically common sense.

Dmso safety for knee pain?

Horses yes

Skin
DMSO has been used for years to reduce the joint pain of horses. There is also considerable evidence going back decades that DMSO may help human joint pain but its saftey profile is still the issue. The drug is absorbed quite well through the skin and could cause side effects systemically. My recommendation is do not use it

How did the safety razor help?

Limits skin cuts

Abrasions
Prior to the safety razor, the major way to shave was to use an open blade on a standard razor. This requires some degree of skill, a very sharp blade and a high risk of skin cuts and abrasions. The safety razor limits the penetration and allows from the unskilled consumer to shave without such risks.

Bottled water safety standards?

Not really any

Water
Bottled water is watched to make sure there aren't any obvious contaminants (lead, bacteria, etc) but not really to make sure it's pure or that there aren't trace minerals, sediment, or even the contents are what they say they are. It's not a drug, and as such is subject to standards for foods, such as a certain number of bug parts are ok, etc. Bottled water is not much cleaner truthfully than tap

Dr. Meng K. Syn answered:

Composite fissure sealant safety?

Very safe but

Teeth
Sealants manufactured in the US are safe to place on teeth and can be very beneficial. I recently read an artiicle in a peer review magazine that some sealants manufactured outside the US had detectable levels of bisphenol A (BPA) in extreamly low levels. BPA from composite fillings and sealents manufactured outside the US should be avoided since there is some concern.
