Is it alright to use a harness on a young child? People glare at me like I have a dog on a leash!

Is it alright to use a harness on a young child? People glare at me like I have a dog on a leash!

Be practical: Today's harnesses are often disguised as a cute back pack but the doberman setup is fine. No matter what looks you get, I'd rather control a darter around traffic or the busy mall than face a traffic fatality or abduction. I saw my first one 3 decades ago and was surprised and concerned. Years later, I have watched a darter die in the ICU that a harness would have saved. ...Read more

Child safety harness with booster seat - is it better to use or not to use?

Pick your crash ??: The 5 point restraint belts are now available in safety seats up to 80+ pounds from some sources. These systems offer the broadest range of protection from rollover, side impact, front or rear impact crashes. Simple boosters offer little protection during rollover or side impact events.

Why don't people use nicotine gum/lozenges to harness the power of nicotine to improve certain cognitive tasks?

Nicotine: On its own has bad effects. It causes high bp, deposition of cholesterol, ulcer, probably correlates with urinary bladder cancer, lung problem, heart problem, etc., what you are asking for has no real basis and no controlled study to prove it.

I have multiple myeloma and am enduring chemotherapy with a new drug (to the nhs) revlimid (lenalidomide). Are there any drug/supplements to harness my immune sys?

I have multiple myeloma and am enduring chemotherapy with a new drug (to the nhs) revlimid (lenalidomide). Are there any drug/supplements to harness my immune sys?

Follow MDs advice: Lenalidomide is an immunomodulatory drug (imid), so it is "harnessing your immune system". I would re-word the question as what drugs should I take to optimize my myeloma treatment? Lenalidomide (revlimid) is a very effective drug alone or with other drugs. Myeloma patients are at high risk of infection with or without therapy. Anti-viral drugs (acyclovir, valacyclovir) can reduce risk of shingles. ...Read more

Too much pain in rectum can't sit easily what to do?

Recent pregnancy?: Have you had a recent vaginal delivery of a pregnancy? That is a common cause of rectal / pelvic floor pain. If that's not the case the pain could be coming from an abnormality in the anus or rectum or spasming of the perianal muscles. I would first see a GI specialist to check the rectal / anal / colon issue. If that's normal then you may need PT for pelvic floor spasm and pain. ...Read more
