Does coconut oil pulling help? And what does it help? And what are side effects?

Then there are the imaginary toxins that companies scare you with so you will buy their expensive detox product -- these are fake. Don't buy it! eat healthy, stay hydrated. Avoid constipation and your body will do the rest. ...Read more

Please tell me if oils like mineral oil on skin are safe and if they can have any side effects?

Please tell me if oils like mineral oil on skin are safe and if they can have any side effects?

Safe.: Contrary to what you may have read on-line, mineral oil is pretty harmless. If you apply it right after showering, while your skin is still moist, it will seal in the moisture and relieve dryness. If you have very sensitive skin you might get pimples or bumps from plugged up oil glands - but you won't know unless you try it. ...Read more

Are there any side effects, pros or cons using a vape pen without nicotine oil just flavored oil?

Are there any side effects, pros or cons using a vape pen without nicotine oil just flavored oil?

Nobody knows: There have been no studies of even short-term use, and nobody knows what is in the oils and their flavorings and what they do. Oil in general ain't great for lungs, and the vehicle used in these vaporizers is propylene glycol, and nobody knows what his does when inhaled either. While it is likely that vaping will not be as bad as smoking tobacco, nobody can say that yet with certainty. ...Read more
