How do they safely ship pills around the world in those hot tanker containers, planes and trains?

How do they safely ship pills around the world in those hot tanker containers, planes and trains?

Mostly safe: Containers containing pills are exposed to ocean breezes and the shadowing effect of stacked containers and do not usually get to too high temperatures. Planes are air conditioned and train rides generally too short. A much greater concern is fraudulent pills, and fake provenance for the pills that you receive when manufactured off shore. ...Read more

No: Exposure to cold environment doesn't give you a cold. You may have been infected with a cold virus but exposure to cold just triggered it to manifest the way it did. Of you may just have something else going on that coincided in timing with the exposure to the cold environment. ...Read more

I: I want to first advise you that I did not see the kong - tv report that you referred to. When relationships are harmful to your sense of wellness; they are some referred to as "toxic".
All relationships have ups and downs. However, if you find that you feel emotionally depleted or upset more often that you feel positive after interactions with someone, then that relationship might be toxic. Let's say you have a friendship in which the other person always wants you to do things for them and it is never reciprocated, that sounds unbalanced. Or perhaps you are in a relationship where the other person is consistently critical and unsupportive, that may be a toxic relationship. Some things are quite obviously toxic: when a person has a pattern of saying one thing to your face and other things behind your back is an example.
Over time, if a person continues to be involved in multiple toxic relationships or even one relationship that is toxic but very important in your life; it can adversely impact your emotional and physical wellness. The impact can be even greater if there is turmoil in other areas of your life.
If you aren't treated well- you may harbor feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, fear. It may leave you confused, enraged or exhausted. Some conditions that can be impacted by our emotions include: asthma, migraine headaches, tension headaches, gastrointestinal upset such as irritable bowel syndrome. These are just a few.
The most concerning issue regarding toxic relationships is if there is abuse. If there is verbal, physical or sexual abuse that is not acceptable. If you are having trouble freeing yourself from an abusive relationship then you may need professional help.
Sometimes unhealthy relationships can adversely impact your physical health. It sounds like your physiologic reaction of having a stomach tied up in knots in a relationship that wasn't going well is a good example. The fact that you are feeling physically better since you ended that relationship is further proof. Good luck continuing to make healthy choices about the people you spend your time/ life with. ...Read more

Unneeded Meds: It's not a good idea to take unnecessary medication, regardless of the indication. Medications like Cialis are vasodilators: they relax blood vessels to promote blood flow. They don't give men with erectile dysfunction an erection, but allow them to have one if they're aroused. Since you have no problems with your ability, please do not take the medication. ...Read more

I belong to lowest caste. I'm not tall and don't look sharp. I feel inferior becoz my genes are not good. Science says genes are everything & I'm no good

Not true: I do not recognize a caste system for people. Also, although your genes may very well be just fine, nevertheless there is a consideration of nature and nurture in human development. Environmental factors are vital to development. In fact research has shown genes can be modified by environmental factors. Structure not only determines brain function, function also determines brain structure! ...Read more
