Last September a study in British Medical Journal found they were linked to an increased risk of heart failure. Previous studies have linked the drugs to abnormal heart rhythm – which can cause heart failure – and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke if taken regularly.
Sounds like they want to make it prescription-only in the UK. Probably wouldn't fly here, but the mention of heart rhythm ... I may go back to plain old aspirin for my aches and pains.
Martineau’s data is strong, from 11,000 patients in good quality clinical trials around the world. The case for universal vitamin D supplements, or food fortification with vitamin D, is now undeniable. Governments and health professionals need to take Martineau’s study into account when setting vitamin D policy now.
Out of all the compounds I've stuffed into my craw over the years, Vitamin D has consistently been the one with the most obvious benefits. Over and above B-complex and Vitamin C. I'm totally on board with this.
What is striking about Varjas’s claims to CBS and other media outlets is that they predate the first known accusation of this kind by more than a decade. In 2010, Swiss time trial and classics specialist Fabian Cancellara came under scrutiny when, at the Tour of Flanders, he took a curiously timed bike change and then went on to win by accelerating away from his competitors with disconcerting ease.
If you've not seen the video, start at 3:30 here. It's really freaky.
As an aside, the first edition of Colin Fletcher's The Complete Walker was the closest I've ever read to real experience. If I were reading to someone bedridden or wheelchair bound, sections of that would be my first choice.
Popolizio is still struggling to walk because of the frostbite on her feet, and her teeth may be fractured from days of violently chattering from the cold.
Day hikers are usually the ones at most risk (not enough equipment to deal with changing conditions). Mountains and Mother Nature can be brutal. I know it's a bummer to have to carry extra stuff that you likely won't have to use, but it's not just prudent. It's necessary.
Because they prefer chips from CVS and going out to restaurants. And, increasingly, so do their parents.
Given what I see at the local drug stores, M's will be the size of houses ... with diabetes and hardened arteries. They all sell the finger-convenience-foods. Nothing nutritious. Well, perhaps some nut/granola bars.
The recommendation to avoid whole milk may have been popular in the past, but it isn’t supported by science.
If you didn't know. Though ... don't use it for a protein powder replacement. Works well in that capacity, but those of us in the vicinity will need clothespins for our noses (excess gas).
Of interest. My midsection weightloss has tightened up pretty well, but I had only 'expanded' a couple of inches for less than three years. Certain positions, one gets that 'Iggy Pop' look. I do habitually drink bone broths.
I love rollers. There's no training device better for policing your form; you'll thank them exponentially when passed within inches by a semitruck. But beware using them for too long. Had a friend who ground his groin into impotence on a set. Use a good seat, and get off it frequently.
