    I think "will" for #7, but "could" is also possible.

    'Will' is too presumptive; even a doctor could not make such a diagnosis. 'Could' makes the point without asserting that it is bound to happen.

    But when your mother warns you about something, she doesn't take such distinctions into mind. "Wear a hat or you'll catch a cold."
