Probably not: While there have been advances in head restraint systems by some auto manufacturers, it is probably not possible to prevent the whiplash syndrome entirely until people stop hitting people from behind with their cars.
What are the most common health and safety precautions that can be taken to prevent accidents in children around the house?
Locks and gates: The person most dangerous to the average toddler is himself. Any potentially toxic substances, cleaners, sprays, medicines, alcohol etc., should be out of reach and/or locked up. Heavy objects that can topple (like big table lamps) should be out of reach. Stairways should be gated securely. Choking hazards should be stored. Remember, accidents will happen anyway. Stay calm when they do.See 2 more doctor answers
Should I put a safety gate for the stairs to prevent my baby from accidentally falling or am I being paranoid?
Good timing!: It's interesting that the national falls prevention awareness day was just observed two days ago--the first day of fall (sept. 22 in 2012) to promote and increase public awareness about how to prevent falls among older adults. But, the risk of falls among infants is real. Approximately 1 million children are injured in falls each year. Some of these falls are from stairs. Good call!See 1 more doctor answer

Physiatrist: Generically, could see a rehab doc, but a good osteopath may be miraculous. Need to make certain that your problem is "soft tissue in origin", as some pts have experienced disc ruptures, and many pts with delayed recovery really have thoracic outlet syndrome.
I'm trying to determine whether my teenage daughter should receive the HPV vaccine to help prevent cervical cancer. Since it's a new vaccine, I'm concerned about the safety of it. What risks should I be aware of?
VERY safe vaccines: As safe or safer profile than any other vaccine you give your kids. Nothing differed from placebo in initial studies of over 30, 000 men and women other than pain, edema, red an itching at injection site, and fever, nausea, headache and dizziness. That is it! Most common 'severe' reaction is headache. 100 million doses distributed worldwide now with great safety data since release as well.See 2 more doctor answers
What is the best course of treatment? I'm 24, female, no prior neck injury I was involved in a rear-end car accident two weeks ago. We were hit at high speed while we were stopped at a light. 24 hours after the initial ER visit (discharged for whiplash),
Wow.: Wow. I'm sorry to hear of your injury, and understand how what appears to be conflicting opinions make you a little nuts, especially when you're in pain (and numbness). It's not "right" versus "wrong" here, though. Your gp seems to be looking to treat you conservatively with steroids, probably in an effort to shrink any swelling in the discs which are pressing up on nerves, which is causing the pain and numbness. Surgery on cervical discs isn't something you rush into, at least not without exhausting all conservative measures first. I would certainly let your gp know of any side effects the Prednisone is causing. You may also want to try a course of acupuncture, which works particularly well for this sort of thing. If you continue to show no improvement, by all means, get the mri. You may also want to consider a steroid injection into the disc (sounds worse than it is). Whiplash can be an exasperating problem, and it may take a number of treatment modalities to get you relief. Good luck.See 2 more doctor answers

Dr.: Dr. Edderai has given you a good source to answer you question. The use of fluroride in our daily lives have become a very controversial and emotionally charged issue with some activists going to great lengths to search for and highlight possible adverse effects of the mineral. Most of their claims are not backed up by valid peer reviewed research. Also understand that if you eliminated every food, drug and environmental product that has harmful side effects you would be left with little in the way of effective treatments for the diseases known to man and there would be significantly less in the way of food for the world to eat. The bottom line is that life expectancy is rising across the world, due in part to the advances made in health care products. I have included two additional links to help you.See 2 more doctor answers
