You are crazy: If you think that any responsible physician would give you advice that could lead to your death. Injecting pills introduces talc, any number of contaminants, as well as a host of different germs into your venous system. It is dangerous, can lead to death, pulmonary embolism, heart valve infections, brain abscess, bone abscess, pneumonia and many other things. Stop now, get help. ...Read more

Could I die if water was injected into my bloodstream?

Could I die if water was injected into my bloodstream?

Yes: Doctors use sterile water injections into the bloodstream on a regular basis, and this is perfectly safe. However, nonsterile water (tap water) injected into the bloodstream may be contaminated with chemicals and bacteria that could lead to infection and death. Bottom line: let your health care professional do all injections into your bloodstream! ...Read more

Hello. Was just curious as to what would happen to me if I were injected with 10mls of water for injection through my IV line?

Hello. Was just curious as to what would happen to me if I were injected with 10mls of water for injection through my IV line?

Harmful: Infusion of plain water intravenously, even if it's sterile, can potentially cause destruction of your red blood cells (hemolysis), although it would have to be a larger volume to cause severe hemolysis. The destroyed red blood cells cause damage to kidney tubules. Don't mess with your iv line!! ...Read more

Infection risk aside, how much would someone's hgb be lowered (very roughly) from injecting 100ml pure water? Is that a low enough amount to be safe?

Infection risk aside, how much would someone's hgb be lowered (very roughly) from injecting 100ml pure water? Is that a low enough amount to be safe?

Good grief!: Why would you do such a thing? Is this some sort of wacko natural health procedure? The actual reduction in hemoglobin level would be small, but if 100 ml water were rapidly injected, it might cause significant hemolysis (osmotic rupture of red blood cells), which in turn can cause serious problems like kidney damage. In any case, this carries absolutely no health benefit. Don't do it. ...Read more

Yesterday, I injected a B12 into my butt by myself, After injection, I felt a bit pale lips. It lasted 3 min and drinking some water got it better. Why?

Are parabens actually a fake hormone? Would it effect a womens menstraul cycle?

Are parabens actually a fake hormone? Would it effect a womens menstraul cycle?

It's possible: The jury is still out on chemicals deemed endocrine disruptors. Parabens are in this category. They can act like estrogen. The studies that have been done so far were using very high doses in lab animals. The big question is do the tiny doses we get from cosmetics, lotion, shampoo etc add up? Hopefully we will have a better answer soon. There are more and more products that are paraben free now. ...Read more
