When you start eating more vegetables, especially more of the leafy green kind, and most especially if you never really ate that many before, TAKE BEANO (or something similar). Otherwise, you may end up with really bad gas (and the bloating and cramps that go with it).
Taking something to help prevent the gas ensures that you won't give up on eating more vegetables right after you start.
Hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated.Some medicines can cause hair loss sucj as meds for gout, heart/HBP, blood thinners & antidepressants or a hormone inbalance. Get Checked by your doctor.
