    Kommentar till text 429 av Ardith Hinton (1:153/716.0)
Ärende: Food & Drugs...  2B.
============================
On or about: 11-24-06  21:23, Ardith Hinton did engage James Bradley regarding,
but not limited to: Food & Drugs...  2B.

 JB>  It's the same old story, that the quips are easy to
 JB>  pound out, but the thought provoking messages, get
 JB>  shortchanged.


 AH> Understood.  I have several partially finished replies to
 AH> you  here... I keep them in what looks like an echo area, but 
 AH> doesn't scan out or delete old messages.  That's one of the 
 AH> advantages of being married to the SysOp!  And I'm posting 
 AH> this message first because it's easier for me to condense
 AH> umpteen pages of factual material than to answer a 
 AH> "thinking" question... [chuckle].
 
Arrr... Rub it in! <G> I just asked about a class of program that could add
some flexibility in my OLMR. I used the same reader when running my board, but
I could utilize a scratchpad like area, (Like you mentioned.) where
compositions could be pondered, without joining the regular flow. The finality
of the way I am doing things now - as a user calling into a board - places
limitations on a few of those conveniences. Next step up, would be to dedicate
a point system, that is basically a board, without dedicating a phone line to
callers 23x7. There is also a Mail Only setup, that is basically a point,
without a decimalled address. Both those, would require that I stop messing
with a 'puter long enough to set it up, and keep it stable. You've likely
asertained, that would be a very tall order for me. For example, I may have
just displaced my #2, and the "Breifcase Mark III" is now refusing to boot.
This #3 machine is about to adopt more RAM, maybe a hard drive or two... And
this is to the machine I use as an answering/facsimile machine, and the one I
consider most-likely-to-draw-power, 24*7*365.
 
 
 AH>  Our ancestors may not have understood vitamins, enzymes,
 AH>  etc. the way we do now... but I think there is a lot of
 AH>  folk wisdom in certain traditional combinations.
 
 JB>  I'm sure machismo, and trial and error played a part.

 AH> Probably.  I found an an amusing anecdote on the Internet
 AH> while I  was looking for information about the genus capsicum.  Some 
 AH> guy was planning to eat hot peppers on Oprah Winfrey's show 
 AH> to prove his manhood... but he held them in his hands 
 AH> before the attempt.  His palms were sweating because of the 
 AH> lights on stage, and he rubbed his eyes with one hand.  He 
 AH> had to leave before he'd eaten the peppers.  His eyes 
 AH> watered profusely, then his nose began to run....  :-)))
 
I do that on purpose at my Vietnamese noodle house. Well, the eyes watering,
and nose running part. If you're familiar with the oil at all, you know not to
rub your eyes after handling the stuff, sweaty palms or not.

I grew a couple of pepper plants in a pot this summer. (I must have bragged
about it. ;-) A neighbour kid defied me, and crushed one in her hands. When I
told her not to touch her eyes, or lick her fingers, I suspect she knew I meant
business. Defying this advice, would hold consequences that would affect her
directly. I joked elsewhere, that if another specific neighbour kid was here at
the time, he'd be hollering home with tears in his eyes.

 JB>  Why swing the acid content, when you want to even it
 JB>  out? A Tums only swings the pendulum, and can't even
 JB>  start to sway the ph balance by much. Hydrochloric


 AH> Good question!  While I don't have much of a problem with
 AH> acid  reflux I know several other people who do.  So I did some 
 AH> digging on the Internet, and here is what I found.  Acid 
 AH> reflux has a number of possible causes.  Usually it has 
 AH> more to do with factors affecting the lower esophagal 
 AH> sphincter muscle than with the proportion of acid in the 
 AH> stomach... but it can be caused by an excess or 
 AH> insufficiency of stomach acid.  I remember reading about 
 AH> apple cider vinegar years ago.  It was touted as a home 
 AH> remedy for all sorts of things at the time, and I found 
 AH> some mention of it on the Internet as a remedy for 
 AH> heartburn and/or acid reflux.  I suppose it might help 
 AH> folks who don't have enough stomach acid. But if it works 
 AH> for others as well, there must be more to the story.

 AH> Basically, the problem is that stomach acid & certain
 AH> enzymes used  to digest proteins... (as in meat!)... get into the 
 AH> esophagus.  The esophagus does not have the protective 
 AH> coating found in the stomach.  So by chewing on tablets 
 AH> which contain calcium and/or magnesium, what a person may 
 AH> be doing is relieving the burning feeling in the esophagus 
 AH> by neutralizing acid there.  I imagine the effect on the 
 AH> acid *contained in the stomach* is negligible either 
 AH> way....  :-)
 
You nailed it! Reflux, I never knew might be wonkey in ph, but it occurs to me,
if cider vinegar cured *everything,* it was bound to at least help with
*something.* The shotgun approach to natural remedies, if you will. That
sphincter is still what it is, and I doubt ph manipulation is going to stop
that from spasms, (Or, whatever it does or doesn't do, to keep bile from
backing up.) but the burning effect might be calmed by neutralizing an
imbalance. <Thinking out loud>


 JB>  Hence my assumption the cap(whatever it's called)
 JB>  oil in a hot pepper, will reinforce the acid balance.
 JB>  Fighting it, requires the secretions increase to
 JB>  counteract the foreign substance.


 AH> One would think so... but in the various lists I found of
 AH> what food  & drink to avoid, only alcohol was mentioned as increasing 
 AH> stomach acid.  Hot red peppers have been used for centuries 
 AH> to treat a great variety of ailments.  One of the 
 AH> ingredients is capsaicin... I think that's what you were 

Yup. I'll forget how to spell it the next time I need to recall the name. /-:

 AH> referring to... which is often recommended for its effect
 AH> as a laxative & pain reliever.  Maybe that's why Nora finds 
 AH> it helpful.  I wouldn't be surprised to hear it irritates 
 AH> the sphincter muscle, however, in people who are not 
 AH> accustomed to it....  :-))

Could you imagine, trying to explain a capsaicin burn to the mom of a screeming
kid? <L, because it didn't turn out to be a concern.>

The only 'ailment' I've heard it link to treating, is heat regulation in hot
climate.
 
 
 JB>  And then I learned, taste buds, and the sense of smell
 JB>  diminish with age. When us kids used to hate walking
 JB>  into a building in Heritage Park, (A collection of old
 JB>  buildings, and environments.) it was because we smelled
 JB>  the 'old' much more profusely than when we grew up.


 AH> I agree that various senses tend to diminish with 
 AH> age... but I wonder also if the smell of old things may be 
 AH> less offensive to the grownups sometimes because they're 
 AH> used to it & it brings back memories.  When I go to museums 
 AH> now I see a lot of the same things my parents & 
 AH> grandparents had years ago....  ;-)

The artifacts smelled like the Grandparents house, because they *came* from the
Grandparents house? I had a good laugh with a propriator, who sells new and
used tools. When I started through the *really* used tools, I mentioned "It
smells exactly like Grampas' garage." I don't know if they were more likely to
use tallow for a lubricant, or if the kreosote had an aged smell...
