Re: Statins, good or bad.

Interesting story in the link below of a woman on a vegan diet for 12 years, who still had high cholesterol numbers... she got tested for this FH, and found she had that. So, then she went whole hog and cut cooking oils out of her diet and dropped her cholesterol numbers way down. It seems, that eve...

Re: Statins, good or bad.

for some people the op question is irrelevant ,i have normally always problem cholesterol (hereditary in the family) Once again, I'm not an expert here but, could it be that none of your ancestors were vegetarians ? If one of your ancestors was a vegan, for more than a few years, and yet they still...

Re: Statins, good or bad.

Apparently the statins have an effect on the memory as well, and also increase the risk of diabetes 2

Re: Statins, good or bad.

kopkei, did you actually watch the video(s)? I mean, no where in the videos cited does it discuss apple cider vinegar. People can't fix a lifetime of bashing their bodies into bits by forcing down a tablespoon or two of vinegar a day, and nobody is suggesting that - straw-man. You might want to watc...

Re: Statins, good or bad.

I think the question isn't, whether or not a statin can lower your cholesterol, it is...

Re: Statins, good or bad.

I know this is an old thread, but I really think an update about these supposed cardio-protective drugs is extremely important. Anybody taking any of these medicines ought to check out this video from Dr. Greger about the efficacy of drugs vs diet.... https://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-actual-bene...

Re: Experince with loan shark

Didn't know him personally, but from all his posts on UM over the years, he seemed like stand-up, honourable guy. I just hope his assets are dispersed as he truly would have wanted them to be. Perhaps his lawyer friend could lend a hand on this. All the stress from these sorts of situations, really ...

Re: Solar Power

Actually, it looks like the area footprint is not that bad (2X?), so much for my "eye-balling" it. If they could halve the price, they would start looking quite good being that they are 100% DOD batteries with about the same cycle life as flooded lead-acid at 50% DOD. Economies of scale and all that.
