However customs regulations have recently changed meaning that fish oil capsules can no longer be imported in bulk by consumers. So where do you buy your high quality fish oil capsules from the in UK? Also where you you pu...

Musician needing a hand strengthener recommendation

Hi, I'm a musician, in addition to the normal numbness in the fingers of my right hand I'm noticing a weakness in my right hand when playing the piano. Can anyone recommend me a good hand strengthener (exercise machine) that I could use to keep playing competently for as long as possible? Thank you!...

Re: Fish oil supplements won't help in Multiple Sclerosis: s

tedhutchinson makes some good points in this thread. Research is frequently poor and poorly reported! - I often wonder about the effects of cooking fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel. Does anyone know if smoked mackerel effects the omega 3 content? How about canned fish such as canned mackerel -...

Re: Vitamin E and Selenium increase the risk of Prostate can

have you seen the raw data in the select study? i think it clarifies the impacts of supplementing only alpha tocopherol. i can't see the same thing occurring with natural ratio vit e complex. that said, i have never found a study that examined the safety of natural source e8 complex supplements ove...

Re: Vitamin E and Selenium increase the risk of Prostate can

Hi Jimmy, I'm normally 100% in agreement with your views, but I think you've got wrong on this one! I think it's likely that the vit E is fat soluble.... builds up in the cells.... f***s them up... causes cancer. The long term risk is simply not worth it when there's loads of safer options for antio...

Re: Vitamin E and Selenium increase the risk of Prostate can

the vitamin e they used in that study is a synthetic alpha tocopherol derived from petroleum. i would say you need to switch forms, not stop taking vit e and selenium altogether. i don't like the look of your products, and here's why: the selenium is good, but the vit E in the blend is synthetic dl...

Re: HepB vaccination and MS

If you need it for work what can you do? I personally would avoid all vaccines. I know the flu one sent my MS into a whole to stratosphere. Hi LR1234, I can withdraw from the course before the vaccination. I actually chose this profession because I hope it to be relatively low stress and offer oppo...

Re: HepB vaccination and MS

Hi Patticake, Thank you for your input. I've just been going through my immunisation history. I have already been vaccinated for HepB and A in 1998 for travel. So do you think the damage has already been done and the damage will be relatively minimal if I have the vaccination again? Or do you think ...
