Re: 60 grams yesterday for cold and sore throat

If you tested your CRP around the time you had the infection, it makes sense that it would be high.

Re: Folic acid and B12 not effective in secondary prevention

Again, here is where a comprehensive theory helps make sense out of the data. If homocysteine (like cholesterol) was a cause of cardiovascular disease, one would expect the effect to be random and fairly distributed throughout the cardiovascular system. For example, one would expect to see higher l...

Re: Folic acid and B12 not effective in secondary prevention

Studies have shown that people with higher levels of homocysteine in their blood have a higher risk of coronary events. This study aimed to establish whether that link is causal, and if lowering homocysteine artificially would be beneficial. I have seen many studies, or at least reports, over the y...

Re: Folic acid and B12 not effective in secondary prevention

Wait a minute, this "new work on folic acid and B12" reinforces the importance of lowering cholesterol?? My brain hurts... The SEARCH trial had a factorial design, and aimed to answer two main questions: whether high-dose simvastatin is more effective than low-dose simvastatin in preventi...

Re: Daily Mail article about lp(a)/Niacin/Vit. C

If the Foundation ever decides to apply for another grant from the NIH, I really think they should aim towards establishing whether vitamin C lowers Lp(a), and the optimal dosage for this.

Folic acid and B12 not effective in secondary prevention

In this week's JAMA: Context Blood homocysteine levels are positively associated with cardiovascular disease, but it is uncertain whether the association is causal. Objective To assess the effects of reducing homocysteine levels with folic acid and vitamin B12 on vascular and nonvascular outcomes. D...

Re: Statins Cause Diabetes

The abstract obviously does not list all the results. I don't have access to the full paper, but the absolute risks in the diabetic subgroup would probably be there. In the 4S study, total mortality for both diabetics and nondiabetics in the simvastatin arm was 8%, compared to 12% in the placebo gr...

Maybe you're thinking of Lupron (leuprolide)?

Re: How much vitamins in Fruits

Your comment seems to represent generally accepted conventional dogma, and may be true in general, as perhaps only small amounts are absorbed, but remember one of the primary functions of "enzymes" in the body is to aid digestion. Another point is that while enzymes are proteins, they gen...

Re: Vitamin c garden

To clarify, perhaps "primitive" was the wrong word. Weston-Price was not studying and writing about a paleolithic diet - more than 10,000 years ago -- but of pockets of peoples who were eating the same way they had for hundreds, if not thousands of years in their isolated communities. (Do...

Re: Statins Cause Diabetes

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relative_risk I see that the .57 number is not mortality, but a ratio of mortality of study subjects over placebo? So the "relative risk" of dying is said to be about half in the study groups. ERgo if 1 person died in study group and 2 died in placebo group, t...
