Should I turn off the airbag in the passenger seat to avoid being injured by it?

Should I turn off the airbag in the passenger seat to avoid being injured by it?

No, always lean back: You may increase your risk of air bag injury by chronicly leaning forward while seated.The best outcome comes when a rider travels leaning back into the seat, with the head no more than a few inches in front of the head rest. The driver's chest should remain at least 12in back from the wheel & its bag system. Proper riding habits give you protection from both belt & bag systems. ...Read more

A baby can be killed by a front airbag, but has any adult driver been killed by an exploding airbag, due to sitting too close to the steering wheel?

A baby can be killed by a front airbag, but has any adult driver been killed by an exploding airbag, due to sitting too close to the steering wheel?

Absolutely.: This is a well-known cause of injury: a front seat driver or passenger who is not wearing his/her seatbelt and has a front-end collision, is at significant risk of death. Rapid acceleration of the airbag, in a crashing vehicle (rapid deceleration), causes a much bigger force than when a seatbelt is worn. The two forces are just too much. See comment for a link to problem/tweaking airbags. ...Read more

Shell issues/ tech: The plastic shell of seats begins to age when made.They often sit in the car with temperature range from < freezing to >120.This stress turns the plastic brittle, in a crash the straps rip through the weakened shell and baby can be ejected from the vehicle.Improved technology also places older seats in a lower quality category, not a good thought for a precious rider. ...Read more

Should be fine: Your fear is normal but should not effect the baby. Be sure you wear your seat belt across your lap every time you are in the car. It protects both of you. Your concern tells me what a lucky baby this is to have such a caring mom. Hope this helps you feel better. Best wshes to you and the baby. ...Read more

I feel so embarrassed but i need help! i let my dog lick my female areas (front). I am 100% serious, can I get an infection or disease from this? Am i actually in danger of getting harmed?

I feel so embarrassed but i need help! i let my dog lick my female areas (front). I am 100% serious, can I get an infection or disease from this? Am i actually in danger of getting harmed?

Hello. : Hello. I don't know your age. The reason that if feels pleasurable when your dog licks your genitals is likely stimulation of your clitoris and the surrounding tissues. The pleasure is a physiologic response. However, just because something causes pleasure, doesn't mean it is the best choice. I am assuming that you are young (i apologize if that assumption is incorrect). The human body is designed for a man and woman to be able to engage in sexual intercourse. Our bodies are not designed to sexually interact with other species. As sexually gratifying as having your dog lick you feels, it can impact your feelings about sex as well as eventually hurting your self image and how you feel about yourself. In terms of whether you can get an infection? Consider this - what do dogs always lick? You are right, they lick their butts. Where do dogs always sniff other dogs - you are right, their butts. Since they don't gargle after they sniff and lick, the bacteria and feces on their tongues goes right to your vagina. I know this was embarrassing for you to ask. As a doctor, i recommend that you not have your dog lick you in your crotch anymore. In order to avoid temptation, you might do something like cross your legs when the dog is near you or not have your dog in the bed with you. I hope this helps. Take care. ...Read more

I doubt it: I agree it is better to avoid putting hot things on the front of your neck, however, you have not done any damage unless you actually burned yourself. You should be ok! Visit http://CardioGauge.com to learn about risk for heart attack and how to avoid... ...Read more
