Not sweet enough

This is interesting research at the links below, I thought some people might be interested in the first link as much as I am. The second while not encouraging personally for me as such [heart disease as well as PA???] may lead to drug treatments with less side effects than the curent one's or a cure. Or possibly a quicker diagnosis, it took them 7 years to work out what was wrong with me.


A little sugar can help reduce chronic pain. No, this isn't the sugar you'll find in ice cream or soda pop, but it does have a sweet effect on pain conditions like fibromyalgia.

The results from the five-year study suggest that cardiovascular disease is associated with abnormal blood cholesterol levels from the outset, suggesting a genetic link between the diseases. This discovery may be the key to genetic profiling for psoriasis. Profiling could be an essential tool for finding innovative, more targeted forms of diagnosis and treatment for the 125 million people around the globe who live with the misery of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

OMG hanks for that. I was diagnosed by a rheumatologist as being fibromyalgic in 2001 (after 7 years of thinking I must have bone cancer), and, I NEVER have sugar because one of the FM 'remedies' is 'good diet'. Ha!
One reason I read blogs is that it really is a good distraction from pain, plus the office chair is good for posture and I can rock in it.

OK now I have read the link. 'Ribose'? = riboflavin = Vegemite = yeast = Vitamin B = ENERGY. so, vegemite on wholemeal grain bread for breakfast lunch and tea because we love our vegemite we all adore our vegemite, it puts a ro-o-ose in every cheek?

Brownie said...
