A Coke and a smile
EDITOR: My undergraduate is in biochemistry.
I’ve suffered from gout for years.
So one night I’m sitting home and I’m thinking about it. And I wondered if low phosphate levels in the body might have something to do with gout.
To supplement my phosphate levels I would drink one 500ml bottle of Mexican Coca-Cola, made with sugar, on Fridays and Mondays. My gout went away. I haven’t had an attack of gout for over a year. Previously I had tried everything.
I started to do some research on the internet. It turns out that during gout attacks people suffer from hypophosphatetemia. So there is a correlation, they are linked. It might be that the phosphoric acid in the Coca-Cola dissolves or leaches uric acid from the body. Phosphoric acid leaches calcium from the body. So replace it as you go. It might be that the acid provides phosphate for the formation of ATP. ATP is the body’s energy molecule. The phosphate may allow for the metabolism of uric acid. It may also assist the kidneys in clearing uric acid from the body. Or the it might be used in the glucose glycogen pathway, allowing the liver to metabolize sugars. I don’t know. It works for me
I have tried everything for gout and this works. If you suffer from gout please give this a try. Help me conduct a field study. Drink one 500ml of Mexican Coke on Friday and Monday afternoon. Be consistent because this will create a sine nodal rhythm in the metabolism. Try it for a month. Let me know how it works for you. If you can keep it up for a year.

Thompson silent on assault rifles
EDITOR: following the Yountville tragedy, Rep. Mike Thomson said, “We need to do everything we can to put a curb on gun violence. We have to make sure that my colleagues in Washington, who have to date refused to do anything, get off the dime.”
Mr. Thompson had cause to talk an awful lot, lately, about guns, which happens to be a subject that he loves. I find it interesting though, that Mr. Thompson’s current bill, the Thompson-King bill, has no language banning assault rifles, even though it’s clear even to those who disagree that the people are demanding just such a ban.
This is supposed to be a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Yet it seems like our “representatives” are working against us, not for us. It’s also interesting to note that none of our elected officials, including Mr. Thompson, are really talking about the causes of gun violence. I find it hypocritical of him to say that his “colleagues in Washington have refused to do anything,” when his own bill doesn’t do much, and he isn’t actually trying to solve the problem at the root. I have been trying to have a public conversation with Mr. Thompson about this and other issues for months, now, but he has remained silent.
