Water On The Brain In Babies
No: If you live in a community where Fluoride has been placed in the municipal water supply, it has already been provided at the optimum and safe level. In general, too little Fluoride and you get cavities more easily. Too much, and fluorosis can occur. Your water supply should be perfect assuming you don't use some type of home filtration system or process. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
No: It will not harm the baby.Get a more detailed answer ›
Depends: It depends upon how excessive. Water in the southwestern part of the country had too much Fluoride in it for many years and the only thing noted was that the teeth were stained. Normally, the amount of Fluoride put in the water is not that high and there is no harm done. I expect there may be other opinions... ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No!: Radiation produced by a microwave is "non-ionizing." it does not have cancer causing risks like ionizing radiation from x-rays. The biggest hazard is microwaving liquids: superheating to over the boiling point without bubbles of vapor forming in the liquid. When the liquid is disturbed-boiling can explosively start-violently ejecting boiling liquid from the container causing severe scalding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a small amount of insecticide sprayed at a corner of room drift to fill the rest of the room and other parts of the house?
Likely no: When i was pregnant, my father in law sprayed some insecticide on my window sill and i was afraid for days, so i know what you're going through. Likely this small amount of insecticide isn't capable of drifting to fill the rest of room, and definitely not other parts of the house. I'm guessing that the spray stayed for the most part on the floor or carpet where it was put. Not to worry! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hydrocephalus: Hydrocephalus is the buildup of fluid in the cavities (ventricles) deep within the brain. The excess fluid increases the size of the ventricles and puts pressure on the brain. So, to answer your question - fluid is normal --- excess CSF fluid would be hydrocephalus. Now from trauma, stroke, aneurysm you can get blood (a fluid) pooling in parts of the brain and that would NOT be hydrocephalus. ...Read more
Relating to the brain eating ameoba; is it ok if I boil the water in the morning and use it throughout the day? Keeping it in a bootle?
Naegleria Fowleri: Is the amoeba causing the brain eating syndrome. The usual port of entry is through nostrils by swimming in warm, contaminated waters. Otherwise, I think is safer to boil the water, but for other reasons and if otherwise the water that you drink is not clean. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What are the dems trying to back pedal on global warming in light of the deep freeze over most of the usa?
Politics not science: Science is rarely the driving force behind politics. It is usually money, religion, bigotry, superstition, myth, ignorance, fantasy or all of the above. Scientific evidence is often ignored completely, if not misinterpreted. ...Read more
How small and where?: "water" is a normal component of all body tissues, including bone and brain. Too much water can cause brain swelling (cerebral edema) or hydrocephalus (excess spinal fluid--csf) within normally occurring brain fluid cavities comprising the ventricular system. Generally to become symptomatic, the fluid excess is more than "a little". ...Read more

Is it possible to crack the skull and preserve the brain at low temperatures? Without brain dying and the whole spinal cord.
Hmmmm..: Not sure how to answer. Many an unfortunate individual has actually cracked their head in the snow and been preserved for several hours with complete recovery. How long were you proposing to preserve things? There is no way to remove the brain from the body without detaching the spinal cord - this would be a major stumbling block to preserving anything of use.... ...Read more
Live in Smyrna, GA. A little bit of water went up my nose in the shower. I'm terrified of the risk of contracting the brain-eating amoeba. How likely?
My colleague uses a lot of hand sanitizer to clean her tables. Can the alcohol evaporated from the sanitizer damage the eyes and respiratory system?
Unlikely an issue: Direct contact of the sanitizer with the delicate surface of the eye would be harmful. However, the dissipation of the alcohol vapor as it evaporates from the cleaned surfaces has such a low concentration that harm to the eyes or lungs would be unlikely. Using such products in open spaces is less worrisome than those that are confined and poorly ventilated . ...Read more
If the emberical cord is covering the genital area can we detect the gender of the baby using ultrasound in week 14?
Hard to say : Most are more comfortable with gender assignment after 18-20 weeks although earlier studies may suggest the proper result. The parts are there at 14 wks but the baby must cooperate for the ultrasound to produce clear results. A cord in the way makes it difficult. ...Read more
