Can you tell me if a baby got addicted to drugs. Would they eventually forget their addiction?

Can you tell me if a baby got addicted to drugs. Would they eventually forget their addiction?

Good question: Theoretically once someone has been addicted to a drug, they are always addicted. Therefore, infants who are addicted to drugs during pregnancy are addicted for life. They are at higher risk of reverting to drugs as adults & would need to be warned of this. They also are at higher risk due to their mother's addiction.

Probably no smell: Unfortunately there is little evidence that garlic pills or garlic in any form will ward off mosquitoes. The gold standard is DEET - all others are much less effective or not effective at all. You might check Consumer Reports for a recent article on the effectiveness of anti-mosquito agents. ...Read more

Will zerona liposuction work for me? I've heard that zerona doesn't work for some people. How can I know if i'm one of them? I don't want to waste money on something that's not going to work.

Will zerona liposuction work for me? I've heard that zerona doesn't work for some people. How can I know if i'm one of them? I don't want to waste money on something that's not going to work.

Small effect: You cannot expect a surgical result by zerona. This is just for normal weight patients who have contour problems and small areas to be treated. You will need multiple long sessions and may lose an inch here and there but if you need to have more fat removed, one surgical liposuction will get you there faster and more efficiently. ...Read more
