On one hand it may not lay dormant forever and once the immune resistance is weakened it may cause inflammation. On the other hand treatment (antibiotics) may actually cause more harm than ureaplasma itself. What is the modern approach to this? Is there a consensus? What are the criteria to decide whether the treatment is required?

I thought that A1C is a way to measure the average blood sugar a person has had over the past 3 months. But I just did an A1C test, and the form said that A1C measures an average over a 2 to 3 month time period. So my question is, what is the exact duration of time over which A1C measure an average? I'd like as much numerical precision as possible.

I realize the answer to this question varies with the time of day (most recommendations are to avoid exposure between 10am and 2pm), latitude, altitude, medication and other factors, and goes as far as claiming that "there's no such thing as a healthy tan". But let's assume a white person in their 30s without an existing tan, who doesn't take any medication, living at around 35 degrees north latitude (California) at around sea level. For how long can they safely expose one body area to the sun, without sunscreen, outside peak hours?

It seems the question of vaccine harm has been around at least as long as vaccines1. Specifically, the claim that vaccines can cause or contribute to autism has been hotly debated in the last decade. Many claim that there is a dangerous (possibly hidden) link. What is the current state of medical research on this topic? Could there be a conspiracy in the pharmaceutical industry to cover up a link?

My question is applicable to all multi-dose vaccines with vaccination intervals of several weeks, though the specific case that triggered my question was the chickenpox vaccine Varilrix/GSK. My assumption is that, if after the first dose of the chickenpox vaccine, the patient develops chickenpox-like blisters (more than 10), that seroconversion occurred and that the patient would have detectable and lasting antibodies against chickenpox.

Notes on my edit I have been conducting extensive research over the last few years on the history of nudity in social situations, and I am looking to expand my research base now I have come across a few other interesting facts. I have asked a similar question on the Cognitive Science Stack for any psychological benefits and adverse effects from social nudity and what I am after overall is... Are there any physical health effects of social nudity (benefits and adverse effects). I have been asked to narrow down my question, so I decided to split it up into separate questions. For this particular question, I am asking...
