Question

Hi

I really like your site and you have a great philosophy, I was wondering if my site would be good enough to possibly get a mention on your site?

I noticed you have a similar section that my site would be relevant to at http://www.school-for-champions.com/health/resources.htm

my site is www.fleabites.co.uk and is all about identifying, treating and preventing fleas and flea bites, both on humans and our pets.

I was wondering if it was possible and how one would go about being added to your site?

Many thanks

Andy - UK (25012)

Answer

I tried to access your website, but could not connect. I did add a resource to fleabites.net to the Health Resources page. Let me know if your site is still up.

X-ray Risks

Any danger if husband got an x-ray on his back?

April 30, 2014

Question

My husband and i are trying to have a baby but my husband just did an xray on his back, will these xray effect his sperm, will these x-rays causes any damage to the baby if i get pregnant during this time? Thank you

Besa - Albania (24912)

Answer

The safest thing is for the doctors covered his private areas with a lead shield material. But even if they did not do that, having an x-ray on his back should not affect his sperm. The chances of damage to your baby are extremely small. However, you should be careful about getting x-rays yourself, because there is only one ovum or egg involved.

You should have no problems, and best wishes on getting a healthy baby.

Question

Good afternoon,

I came across the School for Champions website while searching for organizations to reach out to about addiction awareness. The educational research, resources, and information that you are providing is honestly quite remarkable. I really liked reading about School for Champions. I think that this site is fantastic and an extremely valuable resource for those who are looking for information about various subjects. Keep up the great work!

I contacted you today because I am a part of the Community Outreach team at Addiction Center. As you know, over 20 million people in the United States have some form of addiction. One hundred people die every day from drug overdoses. We provide information on addictions to alcohol, tobacco, illicit and prescription drugs. We also have connections with hundreds of treatment centers across the United States. Our goal at Addiction Center is to connect those with addictions to the help they need to put their lives back together.

I noticed you have a section for drug related resources, here – http://school-for-champions.com/health/resources.htm#Drug . I think our site would be a great addition and benefit to your users. Do you mind including our link as well? I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best,

Andrew - USA (24892)

Answer

Thanks for comments and the suggested health resource. I added a link to your site at Resources - Addiction. Best wishes for your organization.

Chlorinating Well

Cold water is dark but hot water is not

April 19, 2014

Question

What should I do if I am getting dark water? When I run cold water, it happens, but not with hot...?

Zatch - USA (24876)

Answer

Usually dark water means there is sediment or rust in the water. However, if does not come through with the hot water, it may be settling in your hot water heater or changing by dissolving. You probably should check with a local well service company to see what the problem is.

Achilles Tendon

Re-injured Achilles tendon

March 12, 2014

Question

Hi my tendon reptured in January,i used crutches and moon boot for 8 weeks.Went to the physio she told me i must to some excercises as i was busy with them i had a snap again.Now im feeling a gap but my concern is i can still stand on my toes move my ankle around still do the excercises and can walk.What could have happened to me now,when i went to the doctor she said im okey,but the physio is worried.If it had re reptured am i suppose to be feeling like this?

Akona - South Africa (24771)

Answer

Sometimes rest is required for an injured Achilles tendon or doing stretching exercises carefully. Often a physical therapist will apply cold compresses on the injury, which can help it heal.

It sounds like you performs some exercises that were too strenuous for the injury. If you are in pain, it is something to be concerned about. I question your doctor's judgement by saying you are OK. At the very least you should check with your physical therapist about what you should do.

Problems with the Achilles tendon can take a long time to heal.

Best wishes on your recovery.

Need handles for Vollrath pots and pans

March 6, 2014

Question

I purchased a set of Vollrath pots and pans around 1968 or so. I absolutely still love them, but the handles have charred nd broken off. All that is left is a screw. (Obviously I had the heat up to high). I would love to use them again. Can you direct me as to where I can find replacement handles?

Gail - USA (24583)

Answer

It is wonderful that your cookware lasted over 45 years.

You can try contacting Vollrath directly at their website or calling (901) 867-2951 for customer support.

Often local repair shops have generic handles that may work.

Best wishes on getting your replacement handles.

Resources on clean water

February 27, 2014

Question

My name is Lynn Taylor, a member of the Berkey Filters team. In my current role I conduct research and create informative articles relevant to the cleanliness of water. This includes everything from water pollution, water purification, and the overall benefits of life's most valuable commodity, water. When conducting my research I am sure to use credible and and reliable resources to support any and all topics discussed within the article. As a huge advocate for keeping the world's waters as clean as possible, I do my best to help keep as many people informed as I can. After exploring your page http://schoolforchampions.com/health/resources.htm I feel that my article which can be found at http://www.berkeyfilters.com/articles/the-many-methods-of-water-purification/ would be a wonderful addition to your resources. On your page, I was able to find an great deal of relevant and quality information and would like to help add to it. I hope you will add my article to your page as it would help to educate more and more people.

Thank you for doing your part and creating such great page.

Best,

Thanks for the resource article. I added it to Health Resources and Preventing Bottled Water Contamination.

Microwavable coffee cups leaking

February 7, 2014

Question

Hi.
I do hope you can help me in this hunt for coffee and/or soup mugs.
I have some "Divided Dish" microwavable bowls and coffee mugs that I
have had for at least 20 years now but the "Coffee Mugs" are now cracking around the bottom and are leaking. I have enjoyed them so much and I still use them hoping I will find some soon to replace them.
My thought is "hoping" you still have them or know someone who carries them.
I believe I bought these at a Wal Mart store here in Oklahoma City.
They are Regal Ware products.


Thank you in advance

Levi - USA (24504)

Answer

Some products that are microwave safe will simply wear out from repeated use in a microwave oven. This is probably especially true of a cup that is 20 years old. Newer products resist microwaves much better.

Your best route is to purchase new cups to use in the microwave oven. I am sure you can find some that are inexpensive and work fine.

Best wishes in getting replacements.

Waterless Cooking

Wants to cook healthy in oven

December 16, 2013

Question

I am interested in cooking with waterless cook ware, and do own some. The problem that i am having is that they say that anything can be cooked on top of the stove, and not in the oven. I ordered a cookbook that was recommended and they say the same thing in the front of the book, but do not tell you how. So, how do you cook a whole turkey,a ham, break, cookies or such things. Really, i am not trying to be rude here, but am frustrated. We have to be very careful with what we eat, but maybe if it was cooked correctly, we would not have to worry so much. Thank you for your time and i hope that you can help.
Thanks again,

Bill - USA (24335)

Answer

The principles of waterless (or minimal water) cooking seem to be aimed at stove-top cooking, especially with vegetables where you don't want the nutrients drained off in water. But the same idea can apply to cooking in the oven.

When cooking a turkey or ham, you can use the standard methods, but it is a good idea to use a cooking thermometer that you stick in to make sure the turkey is sufficiently cooked all the way through.

Are far as cookies go, there are many healthy recipes for them where you can avoid high fat materials such as butter. See our section on Nutrition for ideas on healthy cooking and eating.

Hyperactive Children

Son seems hyperactive

December 9, 2013

Question

I HAVE 4.5 YEARS OLD SON HE IS HYPERACTIVE, SPEAKING DELAY, AND SLOW MIND DEVELOPMENT
PLEASE SEND ME YOUR ADVICE
THANKS

HAKIM - Kuwait (24302)

Answer

Some boys at that age are full of energy and seem hyperactive. It is good to allow him activities where he can burn off his energy.

Also note that children develop at different rates and in different ways. The famous scientist Albert Einstein was slow in learning how to speak as a child. He seemed to think in pictures rather than words.

The biggest concern you could have is if he is disruptive when playing with other children. Hyperactive children often need to learn good social skills.

You may have to give your son a little extra attention, but I am sure he will be fine. Best wishes on a healthy child.
