    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.

    -My mother is a smoker. I know smoking cigarettes can cause cancer and heart problems. Do you know other health problems caused by smoking?
    -I drink a lot of colas. My wife says it's bad for my teeth. Are they really bad for your teeth?
    - I have many indoor allergies. What would you recommend I use for my bedding, sheets, to help with my allergies?
    -Is it true, if you eat more fiber you can lose weight?
    - I'm a golfer. I also have a problem with back pain. Before I play, I take Naproxen. Will taking this pain medication increase my risk of having cataracts due to my golfing habits?
    -I use an infrared bulb to help warm up my bathroom. Should I be concerned about the amount of ultraviolet radiation given off by my bathroom bulbs?
