Ok thanks. I will start the research. I have high cholesterol (7-8) as do my brothers and mother, apparently some hereditary condition which I can't remember the name . I have been on Lipitor for around 5-years but have recently flagged it. My mother has had a couple of heart attacks which doctors are saying high cholesterol is a contributing factor.

Keen to find out more.

Don't take my word for it, read and watch everything in that link, you'll soon understand why the doctors are wrong - not their fault mostly, they don't actually keep up with studies (mostly), they were simply taught the wrong stuff.

For an example of this, it's only been four years since they decided cholesterol levels aren't important - most doctors learnt about cholesterol looooong before this, you've been on the drug to punish those levels for one year longer than they've known it was useless: http://www.wric.com/Global/story.asp?S=8170917

I'm pretty sure there were some good links about statins in there too, again I have loads more of those which I'll update eventually.

If you want to be on the forefront of cholesterol knowledge, read Peter Attia's amazing feature on it, along with anything you can possibly find by Thomas Dayspring - these guys know this stuff on a molecular level, and pretty soon you will too:

yes well im going to call bullshit on that
it may be the case with instant coffee they used to make, and probably still do in other countries

but I stand and watch my coffee get made, and on occasion that includes mcdonalds (its the only thing I buy from there)

All that happens is beans get ground, water goes through the thing, and pura skim milk goes in a metal jug

so unless they add all that to the water then I dont see how its in anyway true

OK - the Iced Coffee, machine made Coffee and pretty much all of the other drinks are listed as containing "other" ingredients such as the list mentioned earlier. However that list was from a few years ago and Macca's have been getting rid of a lot of the nasties due to consumer pressure, etc.

As for the freshly brewed coffee the only ingredient listed is 100 per cent Arabica beans. I can't find any other info that breaks it down further than that.....

Why can't we get unflavoured caffeinated drinks?

A few times a month I find myself in need of perk up to deal with stuff, so I drink a sugar-free V or Red Bull, right now I'm having a Mother, and it occurs to me I don't actually like the taste of any energy drinks - which is the reason I don't drink coffee either.

Answer - No Doz, one tablet is 100mg of caffiene, so about equal to an energy drink/coffee. For some reason I thought they were full-on prescription things, not just OTC at 7-Eleven. :doh:

It's been a hectic week and I haven't had a chance to get more than a couple hours sleep here and there, so as much as I hate to do it I've popped a few of these over the past couple days to get me through. It's worked nicely and I've got done what I needed to, so looking forward to catching up on sleep and skipping the pills. :tired:

(no heart palpitations yet :scared: )
