  • Answer: A vitamin is an organic compound required as a nutrient in tiny amounts by an organism. A compound is called a vitamin when it cannot be synthesized in sufficient quantities by an organism, and must be obtained from the diet.

  • Answer: That depends on the pill, or more correctly the company manufacturing the supplement. Some supplements are made from synthetic vitamins and minerals and are therefor no where close to being the same. Other companies extract or cultivate vitamins and minerals in a way that is closer to being in the form of food. There are few brands on the Market today that are a whole food vitamin (New Chapter, Garden of Life). Meaning all of the nutrition came from a food source and is presented in a way that your body reacts to it like food. you can find out more about these vitamins by visiting www.springvalleyherbs.com
  • Answer: This novel type of court case has been used in the past. You have to have a knowledgeable attorney who is willing to forge a new path in the practice of law. The particulars of the case would have to be judged in a court of law. There are some precedents in cases that have come before the court in the past.

    You need to consult a lawyer to find out if someone will take your case. I believe there is merit, but the details are very important. Be sure to keep written accounts of what has occurred.

  • Answer: Pneumonia is caused by bacteria or viruses and the symptoms are very similar. The pathogen is different and therefore, the treatment is different. Pneumonia can also be caused by inhalation of irritating substances and smoke or by fluid or food aspiration into the lungs. Often bacterial pneumonia can be a secondary infection with viral pneumonia.
  • Answer: If the patient has bacterial pneumonia it could spread through saliva and droplets from the cough. It is not a good idea to share food with any sick person.
  • Answer: Sure Ya can...... you can catch any Comminicable Sickness by exchanging Saliva. DUH!!
  • Answer: Yes, if the type of pneumonia the person has is caused by bacteria or viruses. Just like any other communicable disease, it will spread from person to person. Some forms of pneumonia are not due to infectious organisms and they are not communicable.


    Use good hand washing and prevention techniques to avoid catching it from someone infected. There are vaccinations you can get for some types of pneumonia that work like a flu shot to keep you immune from the organism that causes the infectious pneumonia.
  • Answer: Yes, if you are otherwise a candidate for the vaccine (there are age and health considerations as well as whether you have been vaccinated for it in the past), you should get vaccinated since pneumonia can be caused by different microbes, some types are viral, some types are bacterial, and even some more rare types are fungal. The type of pneumonia you had may be different than the types that are protected by the currently available pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine (aka the "pneumonia vaccination").

    Pneumococcal pneumonia is caused by pneumococcus bacteria. There are more than 80 different types of this bacteria that can cause pneumonia. The most common 23 of these types are included in the current vaccination. So even if you had one of the types of pneumonia that was caused by this bacteria, you can still be susceptible to the other types.
  • Answer: Pneumonia refers to inflammation of the lungs. "Pneumon" in Latin means lungs. The suffix "-ia" means pathological condition. In common English, pneumonia can be translated as "a pathological condition of the lungs."

    A more technically correct term would be pneumonitis, because the suffix "-itis" means inflammation, but for some unknown reason it has long been called pneumonia.
  • Answer: You can get vitamins from pretty much anything, like certain foods. You can even get vitamin D from simply sitting in the sun. Just look for what vitamins the food contains under nutrition facts!
