No food, vitamin,...: Floaters are due to natural imperfections in the clear gel inside the eyeball, and tend to become noticeable as a person ages. Floaters occur in many people, and sometimes are more noticeable if one is looking at a plain blank surface such as a blue sky. Large numbers of floaters, noticeably increasing floaters, flashes of light, changes in vision, etc..., should be evaluated by an MD eye doctor. ...Read more

I'm curious about this whole notion of "detoxing" via different programs (i.e. a juice detox)  Under what circumstances are they safe to do?  Is it true that highly processed foods are "addictive" and add toxins to your body? What about those types of foo

Not proven: While the typical American diet with processed foods is not truly "addictive", eating a lot of processed foods, sugars, fats, alcohol, etc, presents a challenge to the body's metabolism. Relying on fasting & juices can affect fluid balance/electrolytes and be dangerous causing heart rhythm problems. Simplifying the diet and avoiding these foods over several weeks can be a safe "cleanse". ...Read more

Is there any certain activities that may make my eyesight worst like videogames,texting,etc im near sighted will these activities make my eyesight wor?

No strong evidence: Activities like videogames usually just cause dry and irritated eyes if done long enough. This may cause you to have blurred vision temporarly until you rest your eyes. There is no strong evidence that it will cause you to have a change in your prescription. Use your eyes, but give them a break so they don't get dry and irritated. ...Read more

What to do if i'm diabetic and have difficulties in reading, what dietary food can improve my eye sight?

You are 44 years: Old, this has more to do with the normal loss of accommodation we all get after age 40, called presbyopia. Diabetes is probably not the cause of your blurry near vision but you need an annual eye exam to make sure. Use over the counter readers to get near objects in focus. ...Read more

What are some types of crabs that I can eat along with my protein shake that would get me bigger?

What are some types of crabs that I can eat along with my protein shake that would get me bigger?

Eat real food: Eating real food is best, instead of processed proteins. Crabs? My vote is Dungeness, with lots of crabmeat and a softer shell that's easy to take off (and Dungeness is delicious). A second choice is blue crab, but it is smaller and has a harder shell. Crabs are expensive, so eating less expensive fish twice a week will provide good protein and omega-3 fish oils. Limit seafood to 2-3 times a week. ...Read more
