Re: Prostatitus advice

I don't know if this has any relevance to Prostatitus, but there seems to be a lot that can be done about BPH, and prostate cancer with nutrition. One simple thing that doesn't involve removing anything from one's diet is to add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed to your food each day. I just put it in...

Re: CCTV security

I saw the old posts from 2017. I don't want a motion detector, too damn many cats coming over the wall. I give them a rock gift when I see them. I checked the Home Pro website but didn't see anything about CCTV. I have a feeling that the problems will disappear once CCTV is installed. Pretty sure t...

Re: CCTV security

Questions To Ask: 1) Does the system automatically send email and/or sms upon motion detection? 2) Geckos love the heat generated by these cameras. Especially during the cold season. They WILL be laying on top of them and dropping their tails down in front of the IR LEDS. Your cameras will become al...

Re: Coffee and Health

16kgs, you'd think that was a lot, but when I look straight down I still can't see my sleeping willy. Stop right there people, I know what you're thinking... I've been told it has perfectly acceptable dimensions, thank you very much :lol: Thanks for the tips on locating those items. Keep going on th...

Re: Coffee and Health

Now, if I could only kill my infatuation with cheese :( If you need to cut dairy out of your diet but still need a cheese fix Villa Market has a selection of vegan (mock) cheeses. They also have nutritional yeast flakes that can be sprinkled on food to give it a cheesy flavor. If your going on a co...

Re: Coffee and Health

"Bloody hell. A link (the first one) to Michael Greger. He's one of the high priests of a plant based diet. That's newspeak for a vegan diet. He isn't a charlatan" Actually, it is "whole foods plant based diet".... a vegan can eat potato chips and drink a coke for lunch. Processed food is definitely...

Re: Coffee and Health

I guess I'll have to be the bearer of bad news here. One of the downsides is that coffee can raise cholesterol levels. Approximately 10-15% LDL rise, if I'm reading the chart accurately enough. The mechanism seems to be a fatty substance in the bean(seed?). It has been termed Cafestol. Another video...

Re: Coffee and Health

I probably should have named the thread something like "Minor Tweaks to Extend A Healthy Retirement", or some such, as most of the old farts here aren't going to radically change their diets to "possibly" add more years to their retirement... and I guess they'd have a point. But, a minor change like...

Coffee and Health

Since most of us seem to have a diet "designed by Al-Qaeda", I thought this info on coffee (something I'd guess a majority of us consume) might be of use... https://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-adding-milk-block-the-benefits-of-coffee/ Summary: Coffee (being essentially a bean product) has some hea...

Anybody see this around town? Not available on AliExpress from what I saw either so the pickings are slim.

Re: Police report for spouse visa.

The wife needs to get a police report from RTP BKK. Does the RTP need a special request letter from the foreign government body, because she didn't receive anything other than an email stating she needs to get this police report
and email it back to them.

Thanks!!!

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...
