What If Somebody Explodes A Dirty Bomb On The Subway What Should I Do
Avoid Panic: A dirty bomb is a conventional explosive that is mixed with radioactive material. It could potentially lead to radioactive contamination in the surrounding area. It is not a weapon of mass destruction but can lead to widespread fear in the public. Exit the subway & follow directives of emergency personnel. For a dirty bomb - there will likely be a decontamination site and medical evaluation. ...Read more
Does aluminum foil or a reflective plastic emergency blanket block radiation in case of a radiation leak or dirty bomb?
Survival: 3 questions answered: 1) Decent survival food should have similar nutrition as regular food, so insulin requirements should be similar. 2) Poop and pee can go into sealable plastic bags/drums for a while, but consider chemical toilets (porta-potty). 3) A large amount of radiation in the air will get you no matter what. Whole body decontamination suits will limit contact exposure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually yes: Eating 2 subway 6" sandwiches is too big of a lunch. That means eating 1 foot-long sandwich is too big of a lunch. However, the reality is in counting the calories, which means one can eat a foot-long and be just fine, if he eats less the remainder of the day, and does not eat more than what his daily caloric needs are. Count calories, as unused calories that one eats will be stored as fat. ...Read more

Unpredictable: From a practical standpoint, sure if there's a person with a cold standing in a crowded subway, there is an increased risk that person's sneeze and germs will find its way to another person. In terms of personal health, can't really say there's any added risk of riding the subway. Public transport is good for the environment. You could argue, driving a car is more dangerous (ie accidents). ...Read more
Depends: "detox" diets are actually restrictive diets primarily focused on weight reduction with the added (probably not-entirely-true) claim that they remove nonspecified "poisons". The benefits come mostly from denying you the things that may be keeping you overweight -- there's nothing magic, so make your own decision as an adult. ...Read more
See below: Yes but don't get the mayonnaise or extra meat or cheese. Choose a turkey sandwich with lots of veggies or better yet, a veggie delite. Still, I don't recommend eating at Subway often because of the excess salt and preservatives but it's definitely better than McDonalds, Carls Jr, Burger King, Wendy's, Taco Bell, or Jack in the Box. ...Read more
Why is dorm food so bad? They charge a lot and give us organic choices, but seriously, subway is better. What do I tell dad?
Many reasons: Dorm food is mass produced and is made from food supplied by commercial vendors. The food chain is subject to adulteration and spoilage. Dorm food managers tread the line between palatability and cost saving. This is not always the most delicious, or healthy option. Subway has to sell to the public in the face of competition so taste is a serious goal. Try to eat fresh, identifiable foods. ...Read more

Eating subway sandwich today, my 1 week old (4 units bridge) broke. Was it because of the martial porcelain or as i felt the bridge was tightly made.
Porcelain bridge: Porcelain is basically a piece of glass. Porcelain on crowns and bridges can break. It happens in 10-20% of cases. There may be metal under the bridge protecting the teeth. However, most people want the teeth to look white rather than have metal exposed. Difficult to repair. Go back to your dentist and see what he can do for you. ...Read more

Is subway considered healthy? I basically live off of subway. I do get lots of veggies on my Sandwitch.
It's not too bad ...: I think there is a way to make "living off Subway" pretty healthy. If you get wheat bread, low fat meat (turkey), mostly avoid cheese, get "lots of veggies" and little or no dressing or mayo, it is pretty healthy. You do need some fruit somewhere in your diet, and, of course, lots of water ... not soda pop! ...Read more
