during cold and flu season, i make a point to regulaly drink tea of eccinacea[sp?] and eat mushrooms like shiitake witch have immuno-enhancing properties.

i also try to eat fresh fruit rich in ascorbic acid [vitamin C].

If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I'm skeptical of Echinacea, i don't think it truly works other than by the power of the mind. I've seen no conclusive information/studies regarding it.

As for Vitamin C, Linus Pauling proposed that Vitamin C can help fight off colds and prevent them if you feel them setting in. Unfortunately this has never been conclusively shown to be true through scientific experimentation and variable manipulation. If this were to have been found to be true Linus Pauling would have been awarded a 3rd nobel prize, making him the only person in history to have won 3 nobel prizes. However it didn't happen. Sucks for him.

And if you think of it logically, Vitamin C is water soluble, you can take all you want, but whatever is excess is quickly eliminated through the urine. It doesn't take much Vit C to reach the daily reccomended value. So If Pissing your money away helps you fight off infections then more power to you  :grin:.

"licorice root is a carcinogen."


"Pffft.

LOTS OF THINGS


Echinacea FEEDs the immune systyem, cause it contains a substance the immune system eats, I liken it to what 5htp does for the brain kinda, its more of a supplent then a medicine that has a DIRECT action.

The flu is caused by pig farming, if the planet gave up pork, the influenza would lose it's bridge to humans.

Human strains of influenza would still exist, but there would be about 1/1000th of what there is today.

I would think most disease comes from the slums and dormatories.
