Re: Supplements

Those NIH studies on Glucosamine that I referenced above haven't been published yet, but apparently some details were leaked at a conference:

Re: Supplements

I have had foot surgery a number of times to remove some bone between the great toe joint and the foot. The cartilage in those joints is almost gone now and my Dr. suggested taking Gluc./Chon. combo to help grow more of the stuff. I keep hoping it will work to avoid an artifical joint there. :P

What, you don't look forward to the comedy value of explaining to the minimum wage TSA screeners at the airport for the umpteenth time that you REALLY do have a steel toe and that there is no reason for a full body cavity search??

I'm waiting for the study that says it's effective on severe knee pain due to martial arts stupid mistakes.
