HIV: Hiv will not be transmitted in this manner unless you are an infant drinking HIV carrying breast milk from the mother. Glad to hear you have no unprotected sex. That and needle sharing are the major risks. ...Read more

Will my hoarseness improve if I restrict intake of cold drinks and cold foods?

No: Actually you should do the opposite and drink more liquids to ensure good hydration. Some people feel cold is better and others like hot- so pick whichever makes your throat feel better. A tbsp of honey in warm water can also soothe a sore throat and help with hoarseness. Hoarseness is caused by infection or overuse of your vocal cords. ...Read more

Probably not: The best predictor is what happened before. You can always seek medical help if you experience withdrawal. Drinking that much is harmful, probably why you are thinking of quitting. Go ahead and quit. ...Read more

Weak immune system. Have meds that say watch sun intake. I was in the sun for 4 hrs sharing drink with a friend. I've had a cold 4 days nothing helps?

Weak immune system.  Have meds that say watch sun intake. I was in the sun for 4 hrs sharing drink with a friend. I've had a cold 4 days nothing helps?

A cold is vague: I think it is unfair to assume yourself having a weak immune system without being diagnosed by a doctor or an immunologist to quantify which immune system is weak. A lot of things can make you feel sick including staying out in the sun for several hours. If your symptoms does not improve, you deserve a doctor's visit. ...Read more

Is it okay to eat candy once in a while? I never intake sweets and its been 4 years since i've eaten candy, chocolate, drinking soda, etc.

Is it okay to eat candy once in a while? I never intake sweets and its been 4 years since i've eaten candy, chocolate, drinking soda, etc.

Absolutely: I'm a dentist & a chocoholic (with moderation of course). Some candy and snacks are worse than others. It is all dependent upon frequency of use, time in contact with teeth, and type of candy or snack. Sticky snacks and long lasting ones such as breath mints, lollipops, caramels, etc are bad. Chocolate washes away quickly and is not so bad. When you can't brush & floss, at least rinse afterwards. ...Read more

Greetings! how many mL of green tea am i allowed to drink daily? the recommended daily intake? thanks

At least 6 cups but:: This is a case where, to a certain degree, more is better, except you want to not overdo caffeine. Research has shown that adults in Japan who had 5 or more cups a day had the most benefits, but I would not do more than 6 cups unless some of it is decaf, in which case you can drink as much as you can! One can also take capsule or tinctures that contain concentrates. See http://tinyurl.com/oy6e59p ...Read more
