Another health myth?


Another thing that will drop your cholesterol is coconut oil. Go to www.coconutresearchcenter.org and read about it. I'm sure there are other sources of information as well.

Was it statin drugs you were given?

I've heard lots of awful stories about the associated side effects; how did you get on with them?

I had the bad side effects. The muscle pain and weakness. The ones that can be fatal. But I don't blame them entirely. I am allergic to almost all meds anyway.

You may be on to something there. I'll bet they are good for you. And...with the recent new findings about how healthy and body-cleansing sugar can be I would expect the price of an Almond Joy to soar through the roof shortly.

Hahahahaha....that's cool. Though, those who don't bother much are fit and fine...no tension, no heart attack.

That's true. If they think it's a healthy food, the price could easily go up to $2.00 each.

I have read of some of the side effects such as memory loss, and this concer...........where was I?

Oh yeah, this concerns me.

My question is, if you stop those meds, what becomes of your flippers and the third eye that you grew?

They go away eventually. In the mean time, do a lot of swimming and wear a good face mask.... but take it off before you go in a bank - those bank tellers have NO sense of humor.

I think the perfect answer is always to swallow some man made chemical compounds in a chalk-based tablet or in a gel-wrapped capsule.
