  1. No, but there are some speedcyclists as well as EPOcyclists in Denmark.
  2. I didn't even know we had speedskaters in Denmark... and I didn´t know they had legs *g*
  3. You are very welcome, and by all means bring your girlfriend. If you do the statistics on females, it seems reasonable that your better half does the statistics on males
  4. Why, thank you for the , Raven. Potter, presumeably you are right and there is no connection between soy and telangiectasia. It could be interesting to do some statistics on the situation, though.
  5. No, I am not doubting _you_ . In fact I am very interested in hearing about peoples experiences with soy. This is why I ask where the information is from. If you tell me these are your personal experiences, I believe it. If the information is obtained from the web, I would like to check out the source. There is a soy war going on out there, and one should always remain skeptical when presented with claims from web sites, in particular commercial ones. Unfortunately a Google search is not a guarantee for scientifically proven information. The situation can be improved somewhat by using a filter (searching only on .edu sites, say) or by using the "scientific google" scholar.google.com. Regards. Both, my thyroid was malfunctioning and now that I stopped the soy/broccoli/cabbage things are better. Are you doubting me? Try google.
  6. Are these personal experiences or do you have some references?
  7. In the world of bodybuilding, vascularity is highly valued. However, the term does not refer to the permanent and rather unsightly dilation of the smaller superficial veins commonly referred to as "spider veins" or "spider telangiectasia"! Unfortunately I have witnessed the appearance of several short linear or slightly branched telangiectasies on my trunk and legs within the last couple of years. Given that the phenomenon is more common in women than in men, of course I am led to speculate the reason for the occurrence of these pathological changes. There could be a genetic component, but I am wondering if a high intake of phytoestrogens (especially the isoflavones from all my soy shakes) could have had an effect. So I would like to hear if any of you guys have had similar experiences?
  8. 18 Ahnuld movies? Amazing. I must admit I haven't got that many. But the essential ones are there-- such as the action epic "Hercules in New York".
  9. I have heard that story too, and it sounds a bit like a fairytale. Many animals (e.g. mammals) have thermosensitive ion channels with fixed temperature activation thresholds -- for instance one type of ion channel may be activated at temperatures above 43 celcius, another at temperatures above 52 celcius and so on. Pain is associated with the activation of some or all of these channels. Hence if the lobster can feel pain (and why shouldn't it) it probably feels it increase all the way from ~43 degrees C and up to the point where its nervous system shuts down.

    Welcome VeganDude!
  12. Indeed! I have been shaving my head for 10 years, and I have no intention of going back. I'm not going back either. I've been shaving for more than 12 years, so why quit?!
  13. Indeed! Unreachable mojo. Probably. Time will show, I guess I actually liked The Cell because of its surrealism. That is William Shatners hair on his head! Blasphemy!
  14. Hi and welcome! Sorry to hear about the puppy .
  15. Welcome to the forum Meg!
