    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- No matter what the question, no one can stump Dr. T. Glenn Pait with UAMS. He's cracking open up his medical mailbag to answer your questions.

    These are the questions he covered:

    -My sister says she cooks with a lot of spices, such as garlic powder and oregano. She says spices are good for your heart. Is she on to something or is she just reading the wrong magazines?

    -My husband said he would rather give up sex than give up his cell phone. Is that normal or is something wrong with my husband?

    -During the holidays my daughters and I shop a great deal. We would like to know how we can turn our shopping into an exercise activity. How quickly and how long should we walk? How many calories will we burn?

    -I enjoy the holidays. I enjoy shopping, but I do not enjoy the public toilets. I'm afraid of sitting on the toilet because of diseases. Do you think it's okay if I sit down?

    -What is the most dangerous day during the holiday, bad for your health? I think it's Christmas Day because of the anxiety, being with family some of whom you do not wish to be with, and fixing the Christmas day dinner and entertaining throughout the day. Am I correct?

    -My husband enjoys wine, but he drinks a lot of wine around the holiday table. He says wine is good for your heart. What do you think about wine drinking?

    -Is it true that cheese is good for your teeth?
