Q: 

How Much Asbestos exposure Is Dangerous?

A: Asbestos exposure can be very dangerous, and it can lead to lung cancer. Prolonged exposure to asbestos accounts for over eighty percent of all mesothelioma cancer cases. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that is directly linked to asbestos exposure, and it can affect the lungs, abdomen, and even the membrane around the heart. Over two thousand new cases are discovered every year. Significant increases in these cancer risks were observed in workers that had a wide range of exposures, from five to 1,200 fiber-year/mL. Tobacco smokers also had a far greater risk of cancer from exposure, even more than their non smoking fellow employees. When they inhale asbestos...


Q: 

[NSFW] What did your first view of images of human reproductive activity make you feel insecure about?

A: It wasn’t porn, but a film on human sexuality scarred me.. I took a biology course at the local community college when I was 14. The instructor (who was a freak, by the way) showed a film on natural childbirth. I remember the camera being between the mother’s legs, and when the baby crowned, she ripped stem to stern. That cemented my opinion that I did not want to have kids.. Watching porn just made me think that sex looked ridiculous and really not very attractive. And that boobs were apparently made out of plastic.. —To the observer, sex always looks ridiculous and not very attractive. Luckily it feels good enough to override that memory.. I have never understood the draw that porn has. It is certainly a thriving industry, so some people must enjoy watching it. I always found myself

Q: 

What are the first signs of rabies in humans?

A: I was scratched by a stray cat a few years ago. I told my work this a couple days later and they made me get a series of rabies shots where I was scratched. (I was in the military and they overreact about everything.) Now that I have it done I''m glad I did so I don''t have to worry anymore. But I would just contact my doctor or hospital and ask them where I should go. The dumb cat go me on my chest, stomach, and arms, so I had to get shots in all those places. Hopefully the squirrel went a little easier on you. And I read your other post about helping the squirrel and I think you are the greatest guy in the world. Most guys think it''s funny to hurt animals, not help them. Good luck with your rabies! getting bit or scratched is first sign,second sign could be...


Q: 

I have been sick for the past week due to second-hand exposure to crack being smoked. How do you remedy this sickness?

A: I take two inhalers for asthma to help my lungs recover from periods after I have had the flu or colds. The first type of inhaler is a ''rescue'' inhaler called albuterol. The second inhaler has a cortisteroid that helps heal the bronchial tissue and conditions the bronchia to become less sensitive to allergens. There are several factors that can trigger the congestion and difficulty of breathing, including smoke, cold drinks and sinus problems like those associated with the flu or colds. I think it is a good idea that you see a doctor that works with respiratory diseases to see if you have asthma. My asthma was an adult-onset situation, which I believe was related to my smoking (various substances) during my 20''s. It becomes a chronic condition that is improved...


Q: 

how much exposure to Asbestos would one have to incur before health problems may arise?
