These two types of waters have nothing to do with the underlying groundwaters, which can be reached with a probe in the yard, for example, Dr. Georgieva explained.

Even in good health people resort to dietary supplements to help their immune system, especially during the colder months. Excessive intake may, however, be dangerous to health, warn experts. "A healthy person does not need additional intake of vitamins in the form of nutritional supplements. It is enough to eat balanced and adequate. To have normal physical activity and to be exposed in the sun for at least 15 minutes a day", explains Prof. Lalka Rangelova from the NCPHA. You can read the entire material here.

"It should be known that if a person with a mental disorder appears to be excited, he often feels himself afraid. And one of the reasons to be aggressive is this one. This is a protective response. You need to know this in order to understand. Bulgarians are afraid of people with mental disorders, but there are healthy ones that are much more dangerous. For example, drivers who organize races in the city and can harm many people compared to a person who speaks himself in the tram. Evil is much more common among normal people, "said Prof. Hristo Hinkov, Director of NCPHA, for Clinica.bg.
