Wants information on Servus Ware cookware

Topic: Cookware Companies


June 22, 2015

I have a wonderful set of Servus Ware Tri Ply 18-8 cookware from the late 1905s or 1960s. Do you have any information on this company or who owns them now? Thank you so much for helping me, if you can. Gina

The 1960s goes way back. The only thing I've seen on Servus Ware is on eBay at SERVUS WARE 18-8 STAINLESS STEEL Cookware. The person has info on the set and seems willing to answer questions.

I hope that helps.

Wants Queen Anne replacement part

Topic: Cookware Companies


June 20, 2015

Recently I purchased a Queen Anne dutch oven at a yard sale. The knob on the lid is missing so I am trying to get a new one. Info on the pot says its stainless steel, 6 quart , made in USA, 3ply 188. The screw is still in the lid waiting for a knob handle. Do you have such an item? Or is it an antique? Is this a waterless pot and if so how is it used?
Do you have a Canadian address or an 800 number in Canada that I could phone?? Here is hoping you can help me. thanks Sandra Josephson

sandra - Canada



Queen Anne was purchased by West Bend Co. a number of years ago.

See West Bend Canada for a listing of Canadian Service Centers for assistance.

Best wishes on getting your replacement part.

I contacted this form a while ago and never heard back. I just wanted to touch base to see if anyone had gotten a chance to read my email and consider my request to add our organization to your site? Thanks so much!

I really appreciate your help!

Sorry for the delay. I added Cord Blood Stem Cells under Children section to Health Resources.

It looks like an interesting procedure that may need to be classified in another spot.

Mesothelioma and cancer resource

Topic: Resources


May 14, 2015


By way of introduction, my name is Debbie Slaughter with We are working to bring more awareness to a rare cancer, Mesothelioma, and I feel that your organization could be a great help in doing this. I’m hoping that you would be willing to add our website to your site as well.

We would be grateful if you would share our resource on your website so that people suffering from Mesothelioma and their families can better understand this terrible affliction. Mesothelioma is often misdiagnosed since it shares the same symptoms as pneumonia and other common illnesses.

Can you or your webmaster add this snippet of code where you think it's appropriate?
[Mesothelioma Help]

We provide mesothelioma patients with free resources, support, education, and referrals to experienced mesothelioma doctors.

We are a current sponsor of the American Cancer Society, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Make a Wish Foundation and the National Patient Travel Center.

We’ve also established a scholarship for high school and college students that will help further educate students of this rare cancer.

Thanks so much for your consideration! Please send me an email back and let me know what you think. Have a great week!


Deborah - USA



I added a link to your organization's website on our Health Resources page. Best wishes in your work.

Why did I vomit?

Topic: Vomiting


May 6, 2015

I don't know what made me vomit but I never ate the whole day and spent the whole day at school with empty stomach. but the next morning I vomited. I would really like to know what made me vomit.

Lehlogonolo - South Africa



It is often difficult to know what causes a person to vomit.

It is possible that when you ate your stomach reacted to eating after being empty all day. Or, you could have had some bad food that your body wanted to get rid of.

The most important thing is that you are well now.

Is Ebola a pandemic disease?

Topic: General


March 28, 2015


PRAYGOD - Tanzania



A pandemic disease is an infectious disease that has spread through human populations across a large region, such as across multiple continents or even worldwide.

Ebola certainly has the potential of being a pandemic disease, but it seems to be getting under control. It certainly has not killed as many people as such pandemic diseases as smallpox.

Suggested mesothelioma resource

Topic: Resources


March 24, 2015


While looking through sites that provide information on asbestos and mesothelioma information I came across your site. Thank you for your efforts in getting the word out about mesothelioma. While you do have some great mesothelioma resources, our site focus on connecting patients with specialist doctors and Cancer Centers I was hoping that you could add our site as a resource as well. Thank you for your consideration. Have a great day.

Thanks for the resource suggestion. I added your site to the Health Resources page.

References on CAT scans

Topic: X-ray Risks


March 1, 2015

Where are you getting your info? I read that 3 cat scans gave people equal radiation of people that were in a nuclear war. They did measurements of radiation in these peoples bodies




There is a reference list at the end of the article. Another good reference is Radiation Dose in X-Ray and CT Exams, which states that the risk from most CT or CAT scans is low.
