    Concerned friend on Apr, 15, 2014:

    I have a 40 yr old friend who has been using Klima antiperspirant for the last couple of years. He swears by it but last year he tells me he can't play cricket any more because he can't see the ball. He is also now complaining of difficulty reading. In the research I have done no-one seems to want to make a connection between the use of a strong antiperspirant and vision problems. My friend preaches how good Klima is. I wouldn't like to be the one to tell him if it was the cause of his altered vision.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Urine/bladder control is a result of prostate cancer. I had radioactive implants 10 years ago and PSA has stayed less than .1 ever since.

    I have been taking Atacand 5 to 7 years and started felodipine 5 months ago. B.P is running about 140 over 85. Lung-breathing problems began 3-4 years ago. I've been taking Symbicort 3+ years and Started Spiriva 6 months ago. Breathing problems have become more severe with each passing year.
