Do water filters really help trapped pollutants in tap water?

Not in NYC: The water in nyc is so good that filters are a waste of money. And they probably remove healthy electrolytes (will have to check on google to be sure). ...Read more

Like to filter out dustmites out of the air?

They are not in air: While hepa filters work best for airbore particals that trigger allergies and asthma, dust mites hang out on surfaces and inside matress, boxspring, pillows, rugs and upolstered furniture. Allergy proof encasings are the best for bedding and removal of rugs in the bedroom. ...Read more

How does the body filter toxins (ie heavy metals) from the environment and in the food that we eat?

Via the kidneys: Through the glomerular filtrate. Even the ones that are a bit toxic to the kidney, like cadmium, make it out. There's some storage of some of the problem ones in the bones. Please be discerning in your reading, and be advised that most "independent" labs that will test you for multiple heavy metal poisonings are cynical scams. ...Read more

Don't do it again!: You're okay, now, right? So it's not bad. But don't do it again. At some point, you're going to lose your hearing from repetitive exposure to loud noises. Similar risk if you attend loud concerts (what pop concerts aren't loud?), especially if you're close to speakers. Or if you use earphones/headphones/earbuds & turn up music loud. Don't do it! Protect your ears now. ...Read more

Can there be any process that filters foreign foods and their accuracy in nutrition facts?

None: The us has labeling requirements that imported food is required to meet. But there is precious little enforcement. Most foreign foods only get evaluated when harm is detected which is after the fact. ...Read more

How often are there complications when removing a ivc filter?

Rarely: Retrievable filters (most of the recently placed ones) usually come out with little problems. We check to see if they clot caught in them before removing them. More difficult ones can be removed with advanced techniques or with a laser-sheath. This is almost always an outpatient procedure done with IV sedation. ...Read more

Is boiled water more safer than ro filtered water ?

Depends: Don't know what your are particulary referring to. If you are talking about municipal water, nothing needs to be done. If yoiu have well water, perhaps you need some form of treatment. If you are referring to raw water while camping, specific filters are as good as boiling for safety. One can always boil water but not filter out other agents. You can do both if unsure. Investigate furhter. ...Read more
