Ate a strawberry that had a strong "chemical" taste to it. What could it be?

Mold most likely: While pesticides and other chemicals are put on fruit (a reason to consider washing them first), farmers try to use as little as possible for plain financial reasons.

It is possible to be more fit and stronger than some, but you will not be as fit or strong as lots of guys because they have more muscle mass and strength generally. ...Read more

My strong arm has no strength I started working out and evrything was going ok till one day I felt a sharp pain run down from the back of my neck to the front of my chest after a few days of pain and still working out the pain went away but now my strong

It: It sounds like you may have an irritated nerve accounting for your weakness. A nerve may be pinched in your neck due to a disc problem or bone spur. However, the pain in the front of your chest is not the typical pattern for a pinched nerve in the neck. If you have on-going chest pain or shortness of breath, you should be evaluated immediately for a cardiac problem.

The neck pain and arm weakness make more sense anatomically. You should see a physician who can evaluate this and make recommendations for further testing (such as and mri) and further treatment (such as physical therapy). Until the cause of this is clarified and until the source of chest pain is identified, I am hesitant to recommend any home treatment. ...Read more

Will zoom whitening help whiten a tooth that has darkened after a root canal? I know the take-home trays don't, but since this stuff is stronger and uses a light to really get it working, I was hoping it might work? I'm worried about whitening my other te

You: You asked a very good question. And there are a few different ways to answer your question.
Many times a tooth requires root canal therapy due to large filling which damage the nerve. Teeth that have had root canal therapy become brittle, and if they have large restorations, it is better to put a crown (cap) on the tooth to help protect it. The color of the porcelain would match your own teeth, so appearance would not be a problem.

If, however, the nerve was damaged due to trauma, but the tooth structure is sound and there is no need for a crown, a different approach can be tried. The dark color is coming from the inside, not from the outside. Your dentist can try to bleach the tooth from the inside with a liquid agent called superoxol. This may lighten the color to your satisfaction. The solution will be changed a few times over the course of a few weeks. It's worth a try.

Ask your dentist what he/she would advise is best for this particular tooth. ...Read more
