  • Can taking Vyvanse only once cause permanent damage?

    Best answer: I've never heard of vyvanse doing anything like that, but who knows, maybe it uncovered an underlying medical condition that you have. Like you say, family history of migraines. Migraines can be severe enough to cause you to vomit, and certainly to cause you fatigue. Did you tell your Doc that these symptoms started after you took... show more

  • Am good enough for a degree in medicine?

    Best answer: Yeah I think you could do just fine in med school. But you are going to have to step it up in college. I had similar grades in high school, but it was more due to a lack of effort. Once I got to college, I studied hard and made good grades. You want to be shooting for mostly straight A's and maybe 1-5 B's over your entire college... show more

Once I got to college, I studied hard and made good grades. You want to be shooting for mostly straight A's and maybe 1-5 B's over your entire college career. Also, you have to do extracurriculars like volunteer work, leadership positions, and scientific research. But I see you have an A in chemistry, which is a tough subject even in high school. Soooo, I think you can do it!

  • What is a home treatment for cellulitis ?

    Best answer: Cellulitis can be a serious condition. You should consult a physician and will likely need antibiotics. If cellulitis is left ignored, it can turn into necrotizing faciitis, which is an extremely life threatening disease.

In addition to Jeny's answer, the 2' OH group in RNA can break the phosphodiester bond in a chain of nucleic acids (in the presence of a base), meaning that DNA is more stable than RNA...hence why evolution chose DNA to be the long lasting... show more

    Best answer: Well, take some biology/anatomy classes in college, shadow some docs in a few different fields if you can, and do some research (as in scientific research in a lab). If you still don't know and get lucky enough to be accepted into a school (no offense meant, the whole application process is a crap shoot, believe me), then that's ok too. You still have 4 years of med school to figure it out. If you don't want more than 4 years of residency, then internal medicine/family medicine is probably the way to go, maybe ER medicine, but that I hear is pretty competitive Also, DO schools tend to be easier to get accepted to. I don't know if having a DO makes you in less demand or not. PS it will be VERY hard to get into med school if your only motivation is money. Med schools look down on that kind of motivation. Plus, if your smart/good with ppl it will be easier to make 6 figs in the business world

    Best answer: "Whereas THC causes modest short-term bronchodilation, regular marijuana smoking produces a number of long-term pulmonary consequences, including chronic cough and sputum, histopathologic evidence of widespread airway inflammation and injury and immunohistochemical evidence of dysregulated growth of respiratory epithelial cells, that may be precursors to lung cancer." "On the other hand, physiologic, clinical or epidemiologic evidence that marijuana smoking may lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or respiratory cancer is limited and inconsistent." "In view of the growing interest in medicinal marijuana, further epidemiologic studies are needed to clarify the true risks of regular marijuana smoking on respiratory health."

They are often created from skin or other types of mature cells, or are harvested from donors (aka bone marrow stem cells in bone marrow transplants) These stem cells are called pluripotent stem cells (vs. embryonic stem cells), and can become many cell types, but not all. Only embryonic stem cells have been shown to be capable of becoming any cell type.
