HIV Prevention :: Blood On Fruit

Feb 4, 2016

I bought a fruit pot from a store earlier today, whilst eating the fruit I noticed red stains on some of the fruit which looked like blood. I didn't realise to I eat half the pot so whatever it was I probably swallowed whatever it was. I also currently have a fear of HIV so I'm anxious that if this was blood I could be at risk of HIV. could someone please help and just give me some advice, is this a possible route for transmission?

HIV Prevention :: Blood On Hand And Under Finger Nail

a while ago my friend cut his hand and some of his blood got onto my hand and under my fingernail.  I noticed dried blood under my fingernail the next morning.  

1. would the virus be dead before it touched my hand ?
2. can the virus get through under the finger nail ?
3. does dry skin and paper cuts allow entry into the bloodstream?
4. is this a no risk situation?
5. no need to test? .

i just need clarification as I'm not 100% sure.

Nutrition :: Can Too Much Fruit Or Vegetables Be TOO Much?

This is my first post here, im a 14 year old male, 175 pounds (and losing weight at a steady pace, i've been working out since i was fat and 210 pounds a few months ago), and about 6 feet tall (i play basketball) and i want to know if i eat a large amount of fruits or vegetables i can get unhealthy. i eat maybe about a stalk or two of celery, a handful of baby carrots, an apple or an orange, a pear, about an eighth of a watermelon, a couple strawberries (maybe), yogurt, sometimes a vine of grapes, some sweet peppers and a plum or peach every day or two, just as snacks. i very rarely eat sweets although i occasionally eat meat and cheese during meals, and some eggs or grain/oats/whatever cereal for breakfast. i don't really follow the 8 glasses of water a day, i just drink when im thirsty tbh. i workout about 4-6 days a week and play basketball, and i've been wanting to know if this may be too much food for one day, and if this can make me unhealthy or fat.

Gag Reflexes Stop Me From Eating Fruit

Ever since I was little, I have had a difficult time eating fruit. Before people start saying, "You are just picky, just try it." I would like to explain the struggle. Because, the Struggle is real.

I love the flavor of fruit, I love the color and every time I see one I just want to eat it. However, when I do eat it, my gag reflexes stop me from swallowing and simply force me to regurgitate (Gross, I know). This is not all fruit though. I have always been able to eat apples and oranges. I can eat cherries but I don't really enjoy them, especially the fake cherries that are candied and get stuck with a plastic stem, also known as Maraschino Cherries (Bleh!). I am now 20 years old and can proudly say that I have retried many fruit and can now eat Watermelon, Strawberries, and even grapes. But only in small doses.

Fruit is the only thing that is blocked by my gag reflexes. I can eat vegetables all day every day. I do hope that one day I can look a banana or peach in the eye, eat it, and not have to worry about gagging.

I want to talk to a Doctor who specializes in these types of things. But I wanted to know if I am the only one with this problem, and just simply what the internet thinks about this.

Headaches / Migraines :: Fruit And Vegetable Headache

I can only eat very, very small amounts of fruit and vegetables--even organic ones, otherwise I get a headache 8 to 12 hours later. Does anyone else suffer from this condition? Is there anything that can be done to lessen the effect?

Cooking the fruit or veggies does nothing, and I am desperate to find a solution.

Abdominal Pain And Nausea From Eating Fruit

I was wondering if anybody suffers with abdominal pain and nausea from eating fruit. I decided i would try to eat some fruit today as everything else i have tried to eat has caused a flare up. I ate half a banana and a tangerine early afternoon and since then it has left me feeling really uncomfortable my stomach is hurting and getting pain all under my ribs and right side as well as feeling nausea. Just seems like everything i try to eat doesn't agree with me i am seriously now thinking of not eating food altogether and just drink plenty of fluids because it's just not worth eating to feel like this everyday when i do it

Diverticula Diet? Fruit, Vegetables, Cooked Only?

In the past, I have spent quite a lot of money getting advice from a private Nutritionist.  She advised me not to eat any raw fruit and vegetables but to eat them cooked only.  Also not to eat salad as lettuce in particular can take a while to pass through the digestive system.  Also she said that wheat is not a good form of fibre but Rye is better but Rye bread is usually heavy, more like a house brick.  Rye crackers are O.K. sometimes but won't make a good sandwich.

Yesterday, when I had a bad flare up, I thought that I have got to rethink my diet yet again.

I have been eating wholemeal bread but it seems to make me really bloated and uncomfortable.

I am going to start taking probiotics again but not sure which ones are best.

I have been dieting for 7 months with an hour a day at the gym. I have dropped 55 lbs. I have hit a major wall and don't know what the problem is. I started to really hard core track my food intake.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome :: Food / Fruit Intolerance

Well, I've come across a new symptom.  Not new exactly, just worsening.  In the last 6 months or so, there does not seem to be a fruit that I can tolerate.  No matter what I try, I end up nauseated and close to throwing up.  Anyone else lose an entire food group before?  And if so, did you get it back over time?

Constipation - Juice, Fruit, Fiber, Vegetable And Vitamins - Not Working

I am constipated most of the time. It goes about 3 weeks, I end up throwing up because food won't go anywhere (I don't induce vomiting, it just comes back up). I get constipated enough that my pelvic area and legs are in pain.

I take a fiber supplement, a multivitamin, and a B vitamin. For breakfast I usually have 2 eggs scrambled with spinach and a protein shake, eat a cup of raw vegetables for a snack, then a cup of raw raw vegetables and baked chicken breast for lunch, then usually stir-"fried" (with water) vegetables with chicken breast or steak for dinner. I drink 96 - 128 oz of water a day. I walk 1 hour a day (mile and a half) M-F and just 1 mile on the weekends with whatever wandering about in stores/shopping I do.

My doctor told me to eat more fiber, so I added the raw vegetables to my lunches 6 months ago, it was previously cooked kale and chicken breast. It just doesn't seem to be helping. The last time I passed stool, there was blood with it. I went to emergency and they didn't see any blood in the sample I gave there, and referred me to a GI doctor. Then I had diarrhea for 3 days (no blood). Now I'm back to constipated.

I'm at a loss. My doctor is at a loss and decided the weight gain/loss is fat, not stool (really!?) and has put me on Phentermine to lose weight. I've been fine on it, and have stopped drinking caffeine since it is one of those drugs that can slam your heart. Haven't lost any weight, just gained, as usual.

My question is more of what can I do to stop this never-ending cycle? I have an appointment with the GI doctor that I am definitely keeping, but this is a lot to slam her with all at once, and I'm trying to figure out how to condense this down with the relevant info. I'd really love any advice, the pain alone is hard to deal with even when I give up and take acetaminophen. My doctor is a great doctor when it comes to other stuff, doesn't seem to get that this is frustrating me to tears. I gain/lose about 20lbs of WASTE every 3 weeks. He doesn't seem to get that this isn't ok.
