Do all men have some kind of cancer when they die?

are chondroitin / glucosamine blood thinners i take plavix

There is concern about taking chondroitin with blood thinners. Chondroitin potentially acts as a blood thinner, therefore people on blood thinners that choose to take chondroitin need to be closely monitored by their prescribing Doctor. You should consider taking glucosamine by itself to avoid any unnecessary risk. In Health, Dr. J

I just discovered that my daughters boyfriend is injecting testosterone. He is a body builder and obviously does this so he will get bigger. He is. He is huge and looks great, however, I am very concerned about the side effects of doing this. How will it effect his temper, his virility, his cholesterol, his heart, etc. I need to know as much as possible so I can have an intelligent conversation with both of them. Please advise. Thank you.

This is a very serious situation as hormones can be very dangerous when used inappropriately like in the case of your daughter’s boyfriend. Testosterone therapy to aid in muscle building is known to cause a variety of dangerous health issues.  In addition, they are associated with an unstable mental state characterized by increased tendencies to […]

Vitamin B12 Overdose – Hello there Doctor, After I run out of my current supplements I am going to be interested in ordering certain items from your site however I first have a question about Vitamin Poisoning. I hear too much of a vitamin can be bad? Is this true? Particularly I need to know about B Vitamins, even more specifically B12. I would like to know how much of this vitamin if any can be harmful. Perhaps you could send me it in mg/or daily value? If you could please find this out for me I would be FOREVER grateful.

It is true that certain vitamins can be harmful for you if taken in excessive amounts.  This is particularly true for the fat soluable vitamins (A, D, E and K).  This is due the fact that they will build up in the fat tissue and potentially to toxic amounts if consumed in too great of […]

I am a 61 year old male in good shape. My question is; why do I feel tired. I work out with weights 4 days a week and do the elliptical machine 5 days week. I had a physical and everything was fine. I had a heart check with a cardiologist and found a very small amount of calcium in an artery and my crp level was a little high. In addition, my hemoglobin A1C was a little high. I had my sugar checked and they said it was fine. I am taking vitamin k for the calcium in the artery, fish oil, multiple vitamin, vitamin c, vitamin A, joint formula, b-vitamins, probiotic and turmeric. Please advise.

My hair roots are White, not gray, they are now white. Started on the supplement, and within a month, the darker blonde started to return ….. when i stopped taking the supplement , in about 1 month, the hair reverted back to BONE WHITE. IVE taken hair supplements for the past 20 years.. The only new indgredient that is in this pill that i have NEVER taken in the past is : catalase. Can you tell me more about how this works please. I am a licensed professional hair stylist and this is very important for me and for my clients. thank you. jon jay

Catalase is an enzyme that helps to counteract the production of hydrogen peroxide in the body. It is the hydrogen peroxide that bleaches our hair and makes it lose color. As we age, we make less catalase so taking it as a supplement helps to prevent the production of H202 at the site of the […]
