Q:

Can exercise effect breast milk?

A:

One of the myths out there is that exercise can actually impact the taste of your breast milk, as well as the amount of breast milk you produce.

No studies have actually been able to support that. If you keep yourself well hydrated and drink a lot of water during your exercise program, there is absolutely no change in the taste of your breast milk or how much you produce

Q:

How much salt can a heart failure patient eat daily?

A:

Heart failure patients are usually placed on a sodium-restricted diet. The recommended daily intake for salt for heart failure patients is under 2,000 milligrams each day. This is less than half of the salt that the average person eats each day. You may find it helpful to get some guidance from your physician or a dietitian on how to measure your salt intake.

Q:

Is smoking addictive?

A:

Many consider smoking an addiction. Nicotine acts on the brain's chemistry and affects a smoker's mood, which creates changes in the pleasure centres in the brain. Despite the widespread knowledge that smoking is dangerous to your health, people who are addicted to nicotine continue to smoke frequently to receive that pleasure from the nicotine, and to prevent the withdrawal that can start just hours after finishing a cigarette.
