Patient discussion about threat

Q. What drug do you feel is the largest threat to our nation? There are lots and lots of drugs easily available to man kind. What drug do you feel is the largest threat to our nation?

A. Hydrofluosilicic acid which is a hazradous waste byproduct of the phosphate industry used to fluoridate water in two thirds of this country! Even if you don't have it in your community, processed foods mafe in cities that do will have it. I could list for days how this is a "drug". It has political roots as to why it is even used in the first place and it does NOT help with tooth decay, FACT! It leaches calcium out of the bones.

Q. how do i keep my baby as minimal as passable exposed to the out side world threats? like decease and other things

A. It might seem like a caring attitude, but I'm not sure it's neither possible nor absolutely necessary - babies do get sick, usually only mildly and transiently, so trying to prevent all the cases of fever would be quite impossible.

What you can do, is to maintain the regular infant welfare visits, give him or her the necessary vaccinations (one of the most important things you can do for your child), make sure your baby eats well, regarding both the amount and type of foods, and generally keep a good hygiene: make sure to wash hands after you go to the toilet and before you handle your baby, don't expose him or her to other sick infants etc.

However, all this is just a general advice - if you have specific question you may want to consult your doctor (e.g. a pediatrician).

Take care,
