Re: Calling ALL Colorectal CANUCKS !

Re: Coffee...yes or no?

Prior to my right hemicolectomy I had no clue that coffee had laxative effect. Then after my surgery it took me a while to figure this out. Unfortunately this effect is rather strong in my case. When I go to the office I need a few cups of coffee through the day, that would result to a few trips to ...

Cured, do you understand that often such decisions by jury contradict established scientific facts?
I prefer one meta-study article in a mainstream peer reviewed journal over 10 decisions of US juries.

Re: High Dose Vitamin C Questions

Vitamine C is water soluble and rather harmless. It doesn't accumulate in your body and its excess is excreted by your kidneys.

Sometimes life is not that simple. First I got my "polyp" removed through colonoscopy (I was out of work for a day without any noticeable aftereffect). Then I got laparoscopic hemicolectomy because margins were not clear enough (I was out of work for 5 weeks with all expected consequences ...

Re: Update on supplements with some history

mpbser, you seem very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about different supplements.
What do you think about shiitake extract?

My wife is very enthusiastic about it because her friend told her.
To save my energy I just take whatever my wife gives me.
Resistance is futile. :(
