    Hi Cleo.
    you have to be careful when it comes to multivitamins.;) There are adds on the TV for them with sports stars etc for "centrum", the A to Z, all you need etc. 8)If you look into them you will find that a lot of the vitamins are synthetic:shock: and the minerals are collated elemental minerals some of them quite dangerous.:shock: If you keep up your saturated fats such as butter and other animal fats arthritis should not be a problem.:P I use a lot of coconut oil for cooking, it’s 92% saturated,;) and unrefined olive oil from Italy on my raw vegetables with pure unrefined "Celtic" sea salt (grey in colour and damp to touch,) I drink no less than ten x 8 onz. glasses of water a day with 1/4 T spoon of sea salt to every liter 😉 I don’t touch anything with hydrogenated or desterised vegetable oil in it. There are adds on TV that tell us that MacDonalds use canola. Canola is produced from GM modified rape seed that is "Roundup ready" which means the crop can be sprayed with the weed killer and it won’t be effected. Monsanto holds the patents for both the oil and the weed spray and that is a very good reason to keep clear of it. Any vegetable oil that is modified in any way is not good for us. This means that we have to read all the labels on the products. I don’t have that problem because I don’t buy any "processed" foods;):lol:. Did you know that food cans are lined with a plastic that releases Bisphinol A.? Bisphenol A mimics estrogen, its also in food wraps and drink bottles including babies bottles, A lot of soft drinks, Sprite, diet coke, etc. are sweetened with the dangerous artificial sweetener Aspartame, Ref. "sugar free" coke add with The All Blacks. Is it any wonder that we have so many obese people and men who don’t know who should get the door for whom and who should "lead" on the dance floor???

    Very healthy to look at all different opinions/theories and get totally confused. Maybe common sense and moderation should win out.
    Live long be happy.

    I have been on statins for the past 15 years and will be seeing my GP tomorrow and asking him to take me off them. After reading the book called The Cholesterol Conspiracy (2nd Edition) Ladd R McNamara MD, I was very inspired with what he had to say. I am totally convinced that I can do it by diet, and an antioxidant combination of Vitamins. I have changed my diet completely and eat a lot more fresh fruit and vegetables and I drink a lot of water. I also buy a lot of organic food, and exercise regularly. I am going to ask my GP to have my homocysteine levels done including my CRP levels. This can be done by a simple blood test. I am also going to discuss with him about coming off my blood pressure medication as I do believe that I can do it, without the medication.

    Now that is very interesting majorminor. I’m not a lover of sunscreen (although I do use a facial moisturiser with an SPF30), but not on the rest of my body and have relied on avoidance during the middle of the day to keep my exposure down. Having read that article I think I might make a concerted effort to spend more time in the sun. Sounds far more natural to me than popping pills.

    Sounds natural to me as well, so much so, i have started full body sunbathing – i strip off in a nice sheltered spot on deck and started with 10 mins each side and currently up to 20 mins. Of course i had a head start having never used sun screen, ever, and have not used anti-perspirants for years. By flagging the Flu shots means that my last hair analysis showed Aluminum of 1.6 ug/g – so lowish.
