Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / hemochromatosis
« on: April 26, 2013, 09:49:43 pm »
Hemochromatosis is the most common form of iron overload disease.
how do you cure hemochromatosis?  Easiest way is bloodletting/donating blood.
Some people do diet, but even if your absorbtion rate of iron is anything above 0, you'll gain more iron.  Iron isnt something you want too much of.

I dont want to donate blood(I have donated over 2.5 gallons....not wanting to do it is a choice,(they dont even do a free cholestrol test when you give blood now, its too far away, the cookies they give are high in excitotoxins/Transfats)
so how else can I lose blood?

I was thinking needle stick my fingers/toes, lose  a  little?
I don't know much, likely insignificant amount as 220-250 mg of iron is lost when you lose 1 pint of blood. 
I guess I can try that and see what it does, I have my iron checked weekly.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Exaggerated Claims
« on: April 26, 2013, 01:13:59 am »
First of all, Mike Mahler is the real deal and so I have no doubt it will raise testosterone in many men.

But you still have to take care of your arteries. Testosterone will not do that of course magically for you.

Same thing if you went on hrt right?
yeah, sure.,real deal my butt.  I'll pay you $100USD if he ever comes out with anything that increases test by 300%.  within a year, otherwise you owe me $100.
Deal?

Of course,  you'd still have to deal with eating right,  I posted that stuff(bunk?) about the "study" saying taking fish oil was inferior to eating fish.  I'm still not 100% clear on how they got those results.
I have a friend who is on AAS, his Test level is 800-900, hes gained 20lbs in 6 months and now has a buttload of "back acne" and he lives on meat...he's 24...I dont get why you'd do that to yourself.. but he wants more LBM more then he wants clear skin?


I post links to lyle mcdonald a lot cause the guy knows his stuff(about working out, training, nutrition), so I'll post what he tells everyone to share---my only issue with this post is, I dont know much about the whey/casein he recommends.
 I don't get why you'd bother with a bag of protein and make it into a shake, when you could just drink some egg whites, a  essential amino acids/complete protein.
Training Secrets
http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/fat-loss/training-secrets.html
What stimulated this article was an experience I had last week. As described in the About Me page Iím currently living in SLC Utah training full time at the speed skating oval trying to make National or Olympic qualifying trials (making the team, of course, is the ultimate dream).

Anyhow, last week I made friends with one of the other skaters (most of the skaters at the oval are, shall we say, unfriendly. Coming from me thatís saying a lot. I personally think they carry the same elitist prick gene that road cyclists carry but I digress). Heís young and big, I shall call him The Big Kid (TBK).

So TBK and I are at dinner talking skating. He tells me that he moved down here to try and make the national team. Ok, Iím down. Except that when I see him at the rink, heís usually spending more time hitting on the chicks instead of training.

TBK also opines that he is just convinced that the top guys must have some secret. Ah, thereís the rub, heís still looking for secrets instead of realizing that the only secret is ass busting work over a long period of time. And thatís what stimulated this article.

I still get emails, see posts to my forum, etc. from people looking for that elusive training or diet secret. Something quick and easy, preferably in pill form that can be taken and make you great without putting in ass busting work over a long period of time.

Now, this is the American way, look for a quick fix secret instead of realizing that the only way to succeed is with ass busting work over a long period of time. Give me a pill, a piece of equipment, a piece of clothing (UnderArmor being the new clothing of choice for gym posers everywhere). Anything except for having to put in ass busting work over a period of time.

Anything. Supplement companies, magazines, equipment companies use this to their advantage. Read a muscle magazine, a fishing magazine, a womenís magazine, all use the same cover boilerplate that promises training, fishing or sex secrets. Itís the same wording.

    10 Training Secrets for Muscle Building
    10 Bassmaster Secrets for Catching a Big Lunker
    10 Sex Secrets You Can Use Tonight

Now, this reminds me of me when I was back in college, an athlete who desperately wanted to be better and who got sucked into all of the crap in the magazines. This magic supplement, this magic training program, I read the muscle magazines religiously for years just so I wouldnít miss that one issue that contained the secret.

Then I got my head (partially anyhow) out of my ass.

Over time, as I gained experience (and the horror of all horrors: maturity), I realized that there are no secrets. The equation is simply ass busting work + time = results. There are no shortcuts, no secrets, no easy solutions (except drugs).

Sure, you need to train smart, you need to apply good principles to your diet and training and some stuff is relatively more effective than other stuff. But once youíve got the basics, all you can do is bust ass for a long period of time. Or take drugs. Both work and, of course, drugs are easier. See my bromocriptine booklet for example.

So with that said, I give you the training and diet secrets I have developed over the past decade (note: this is why Iíll never be a best selling author).

Training Secrets for Size and Strength Gains (for Naturals)

    If you are natural, you must get stronger to get bigger. If, over time, you are not adding weight to the bar, you are not growing.
    Training a bodypart less than 2X/week will not give you optimal gains. An upper/lower split done Mon/Tue/Thu/Fri is close to optimal for most. Full body twice a week can work very well. Once every 5th day is the least frequently I would ever recommend a natural train. Youíll get less sore training more frequently and youíll grow better. Save once/week bodypart training for pro bodybuilders (read: steroid users) and the genetically elite.
    When in doubt, do less volume, not more. You donít need a zillion sets to stimulate hypertrophy, the bullshit written in the magazines to the contrary. If you canít get it done in 4-8 hard sets (sometimes less, rarely more) you need to quit training like a pussy in the gym. I had a friend who sold supplements one time who kept asking me to design him a product that would really work. I told him to make a supplement that would make people work hard in the gym and watch their diets. He thought I was joking.
    Generally, basic compound exercises are best but isolation stuff has its place. Same for the machines versus free weights Ďargumentí: both have their place. Anybody who tell you that you MUST do a certain exercise is arguing from an emotional stance, not a physiological one.
    If you think you can gain muscle without eating sufficient food or calories, you should quit bodybuilding and take up something easier, like golf. You canít magically make muscle out of nothing, you need calories and protein to grow. If you canít buckle down to eat enough on a consistent basis, you wonít grow an ounce of muscle. And spare me the excuses that youíre not hungry or your schedule wonít allow it. Itís about priorities, eat more or stay skinny.
    Most hardgainers train like idiots and donít eat enough.
    Diets should be based around whole foods first, supplements second. Remember the hoopla over zinc and testosterone and ZMA from Balco Red meat is a great source of zinc, iron, B12 and protein. Not to mention who knows how many other trace nutrients that are involved in optimal human physiology. Eat it every day. Remember all of that crap about indole 3 carbinole. Guess what, itís found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower. Every time you hear about a new magic compound, 99 times out of 100 itís found in some whole food that youíre probably not eating. Eat whole foods with a shitpile of veggies every day.
    There is no singular best protein, each one has pros and cons. Generally, I thinnk casein is better for dieting, whey for around workouts, whole proteins the rest of the time. You canít beat milk (and the dairy calcium has benefits on bodyfat). I think mixing proteins at a given meal is a good idea to eliminte any shortcomings of one. I think food combining (or protein rotation) is a lot of hippy holistic bullshit.

Dieting Secrets for Fat Loss

    You canít magically lose weight unless you eat less or burn more calories with activity. Not unless you take drugs and those either make you eat less or burn more anyhow.
    Donít bitch about how much you hate dieting or exercise. You can either change your diet and activity patterns, or you can stay fat. Those are your two options, except for drugs.
    To lose weight and keep it off you must change some aspect of your training and diet and do it forever.
    All diet books, no matter what line of bullshit they sell you, are working in terms of whatís in #3. Cutting all of the carbs out of your diet will generally make you eat less, so will cutting out all of the fat, so do diets taht change your eating habits in one fashion or another. Some books go the activity route. At the end of the day, even if they tell you that you donít have to eat less to lose weight, they will trick you into doing it one way or another

Note: My job, as diet book author, is to turn Eat Less, Exercise, Repeat Forever into a 300 page book. Most diet books do it with 150 pages of recipes.

Everything else that you may come across, including my various gibberings in my books, are just details on the above. But at a fundamental level, until you are dealing with that 1% of 1% of trainees (elite athletes, bodybuilders trying to get to 5% bodyfat without muscle loss), those secrets are about all you need to know.

The equation is this:
Hard Work + Consistency + Time = Results.

Burn that into your head and quit looking for quick fixes and secrets.

Because they donít exist.

If you can make it to 70, cancer will be cures and they will be rebuilding your tissues w stem cell therapies...

You've got a great start...
I'll make it to 70, but surviving and living aren't the same things
anyone who tells me how lucky I am to have survived a coma doesnt realize, I lost a life, but didnt die and many times in the past 13 yrs I wish I had just died; pain isnt fun.
I see they are already getting organs made for animals, which is great?
just going to cause a lot more headaches, dawinism is out the window already....its going to get worse.

Good night man!  And you're worried about getting a girl?  Just kidding, but forget about size.  Get your hardness factor up.  As hardness factor goes up, you achieve your maximum length and the rigiditiy is what counts in the bedroom most anyway.  And, most importantly, it's a sign of good health.
well said
if only there was a webpage to tell me how to accomplish getting the rigidity increased......oh well heres somethin'

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Wrong methods
« on: April 17, 2013, 10:59:56 am »
This thread is about guys doing stuff wrong,
in the gym
I saw a fat guy spend 15minutes in the gym trying to use dumbells(35lbs) to coordinate to do a dumbbell press(see pic)

He wasnt a bodybuilder, he was "working out" and wasting his time.  Dont waste your time like this, go to the gym, have a goal, do your goal, leave gym. 

more topics later as I see guys doing dumb stuff.

Dare you doubt his superpowers?

I question a lot of stuff.....which I attribute to high testosterone

I have a friend who labels behavior of men as, "he has...low testosterone/high testosterone."
 
Which I'm sure actually makes a difference.  I know I'm different than I was in 2010-2012 because then I was fat and likely had low to low/normal testosterone.
Why was my testosterone low/low-normal? 
I wasnt happy about my life, I was trying to get over a crappy GF, I felt lost in life,  My medical school lied to me and thus I had more work to do in life, or as I see it, more punishment by the school.
oh, I was fat, ie 30++% bodyfat and I was very much an addict to my daily  getting my fix from highly processed food.

so what changed??

I stopped eating  crap food so I could lose weight to win a contest(winning!)
I lost weight,(bodyfat ~18%),
stopped eating processed foods and addditives
started getting results in the gym
then I stopped using my SSRI(bupropion) I didnt think I needed it
decide to take better control of my life(eating is the biggest control you have in life)

so I wonder what science there is, if any, behind how men act/say and their testosterone levels?
-do guys who just approach women have high testosterone?
- do men who just learn easily have high test.?
etc

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / DNP - 600 mg
« on: April 12, 2013, 08:10:51 pm »
I mega-dose C when I feel an illness coming on. I'll usually do a gram an hour for four to six hours, then taper back to a few grams a day for a few days.

If I start early enough, it often wards off whatever is grabbing me...

I do the same thing and couple it with a little extra zinc.  Works like a charm...
I take 600mg DNP, I reduce my ROS, increase metabolism and I dont get sick

Or I take a hit of crack....but that's cause it's awesome

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / MSG and Weight Gain
« on: April 12, 2013, 08:06:16 am »
Lots of expiriments talk about mice and fat mice..
how do they get mice morbidly obese?
they feed them fast food, soda and processed foods, right? 
no,they feed the mice MSG

so when Peak warns you of the dangers of MSG to your sex life, MSG is harmless and just causes allergies in overly sensitive individuals.  A little sneezing and blowing is the least of your worrries if you consume monosodium glutamate (MSG).  Glutamate is one of the body's neurotransmitters and MSG consumed in food has a back door to your gonads:  the hypothalamus.  Read about The Grossly Misunderstood Dangers of Excitoxins.

you also must understand MSG makes you fat!
http://www.medicalcorps.org/fat-rat.htm
in the wild, rats and mice don't get fat. When they are full they stop eating. ...
"MSG treated" mice and rats. What stood out was not that researchers were researching monosodium glutamate (MSG), but that they injected or fed lab animals MSG to make them fat. That's how they do it.

Does Rogaine Foam  lower testosterone?
Or can I use it? Im not losing my hair, but I know the best way to maintain hair is to use it to maintain before you start losing  hair, I'm just concerned it might undo the work Im working on with increasing my testosterone level

The key thing about eating nitrates is that it is an alternate pathway for nitric oxide to be created if you have a damaged endothelium.  I don't know how much kick you'll get from it since you're a young pup,
thanks?,  I'm 35.5yrs old, I dont feel young....I get upset when people walk on my lawn, make noise(which is why I live/work the night shift), I dont understand todays music, etc.) :o

Btw, the spinach you are eating has a lot of them and I think you wrote you're doing two of those per day, so you're in good shape.

Raw spinach does bind to Calcium so you may want to just have that once/day.
Comment:  Some researchers were worried that consuming nitrates of any form would lead to cancer-causing nitrosamines.  However, there is zero evidence that this occurs when eating vegetables.  Dr. Bryan discusses this at length in his book.
I thought nitrosamines were made with creatine,  and combined with what I've learned from you and my biochemistry teacher, there is no creatine in plants, right?

-Below you say there is creatine lacking in plants:
It excels in certain nutrients where plants do not (zinc, creatine, choline, etc.).    This is why the CR (Caloric Restriction) folks eat some meat so that they can get their RDA's in all categories.

--Here my biochemistry teacher tells me HCAs need creatine to be made:
There are studies over the past 25 years that show heterocyclic amines can be formed when muscle meat is cooked.  The amount of these compounds are dependent on cooking time and method.  It also appears that their formation requires creatine, which is a molecule found in muscle.  I have not found anything that indicates creatine is found in egg whites.  So, my expectation is that even though egg whites have a lot of protein, it is unlikely that they are generating amounts of heterocylic amines that are found in red meats cooked at high temperatures.  Also, I expect your cooking method is unlikely to generate the HCAs to any great extent because the cooking time is relatively short.

More good news about eating so many cruciferous vegatables: that the veggies themselves help the body excretae  HCAs, so if you do eat meat/get HCAs in your diet, also eat cruciferous vegatables to help the HCAs pass through.
Heterocyclic amines will be biotransformed in the body to compounds that are more easily excreted.  From what I have looked at, most of these molecules are biotransformed by a cytochrome P450 enzyme (a phase I reaction), followed by phase II reactions that attach glucuronic acid (a sugar), sulfate or glutathione to the molecule.  Both phase I and phase II reactions make the molecule more water soluble, so that it can be excreted from the body more easily.  So, part of whether these molecules will be carcinogenic will depend on the efficiency of these enzymes.  There was a study done several years ago that looked at whether compounds in broccoli or brussel sprouts affected the biotransformation of one of these heterocyclic amines, PhIP.  These researches found that the biotransformation of PhIP to a non-toxic, excretable form was enhanced by compounds in the cruciferous vegatables.

 Red Meat-Heart Disease Link Explained?
Big front page article in paper this morning about a study done by Cleveland Clinic researchers

http://www.cleveland.com/healthfit/i...l#incart_river

The researchers have supposedly shown that high carnitine levels lead to an increase of a substance called TMAO (trimethylamine N-oxide)which influences hardening of the arteries.
 
They have previously shown the same thing with high levels of lecithin. I don't know if it's their words or just the author of the piece, but it states that lecithin is common to meat products. Which interested me, given that every time I've ever seen it on a label, it's preceded by the word "soy". So I was wondering if there was some anti-meat bias going on here. (And even if it was the reporters words, it's very possible he got his info from the researchers).

Furthering the potential anti-meat bias, the reporter states that there is a "well understood" link between red meat and heart disease, although the mechanism isn't understood, so the researchers were attempting to figure that out. Again, that's the reporters words, but it seems likely the researchers were operating under that premise as well. You don't search for a mechanism that you think causes something if you don't already think that "something" is true.

But my understanding is that the link isn't nearly as well established as this makes it sound. So the researchers could've introduced several built in biases, even subconsciously. Also, a lot of the studies are in rats. But it's not enough to just say that and subsequently dismiss all results; it may be necessary to explain why the rat model isn't applicable.

Long story short; does anyone know about this potential mechanism? Has anyone seen their studies? (A large cohort study of humans was conducted which they say validates their rat models, but does it really?) Any thoughts in general?

40 FACTS ABOUT SLEEP YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T KNOW...

(OR WERE TOO TIRED TO THINK ABOUT)

 

-The record for the longest period without sleep is 18 days, 21 hours, 40 minutes during a rocking chair marathon. The record holder reported hallucinations, paranoia, blurred vision, slurred speech and memory and concentration lapses.

- It's impossible to tell if someone is really awake without close medical supervision. People can take cat naps with their eyes open without even being aware of it.

- Anything less than five minutes to fall asleep at night means you're sleep deprived. The ideal is between 10 and 15 minutes, meaning you're still tired enough to sleep deeply, but not so exhausted you feel sleepy by day.

- A new baby typically results in 400-750 hours lost sleep for parents in the first year

- One of the best predictors of insomnia later in life is the development of bad habits from having sleep disturbed by young children.

- The continuous brain recordings that led to the discovery of REM (rapid eye-movement) sleep were not done until 1953, partly because the scientists involved were concerned about wasting paper.

- REM sleep occurs in bursts totalling about 2 hours a night, usually beginning about 90 minutes after falling asleep.

- Dreams, once thought to occur only during REM sleep, also occur (but to a lesser extent) in non-REM sleep phases. It's possible there may not be a single moment of our sleep when we are actually dreamless.

- REM dreams are characterized by bizarre plots, but non-REM dreams are repetitive and thought-like, with little imagery - obsessively returning to a suspicion you left your mobile phone somewhere, for example.

- Certain types of eye movements during REM sleep correspond to specific movements in dreams, suggesting at least part of the dreaming process is analogous to watching a film

- No-one knows for sure if other species dream but some do have sleep cycles similar to humans.

- Elephants sleep standing up during non-REM sleep, but lie down for REM sleep.

- Some scientists believe we dream to fix experiences in long-term memory, that is, we dream about things worth remembering. Others reckon we dream about things worth forgetting - to eliminate overlapping memories that would otherwise clog up our brains.

- Dreams may not serve any purpose at all but be merely a meaningless byproduct of two evolutionary adaptations - sleep and consciousness.

- REM sleep may help developing brains mature. Premature babies have 75 per cent REM sleep, 10 per cent more than full-term bubs. Similarly, a newborn kitten puppy rat or hampster experiences only REM sleep, while a newborn guinea pig (which is much more developed at birth) has almost no REM sleep at all.

- Scientists have not been able to explain a 1998 study showing a bright light shone on the backs of human knees can reset the brain's sleep-wake clock.

- British Ministry of Defence researchers have been able to reset soldiers' body clocks so they can go without sleep for up to 36 hrs. Tiny optical fibres embedded in special spectacles project a ring of bright white light (with a spectrum identical to a sunrise) around the edge of soldiers' retinas, fooling them into thinking they have just woken up. The system was first used on US pilots during the bombing of Kosovo.

- Seventeen hours of sustained wakefulness leads to a decrease in performance equivalent to a blood alcohol-level of 0.05%.

- The 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill off Alaska, the Challenger space shuttle disaster and the Chernobyl nuclear accident have all been attributed to human errors in which sleep-deprivation played a role.

- The NRMA estimates fatigue is involved in one in 6 fatal road accidents.

- Exposure to noise at night can suppress immune function even if the sleeper doesnít wake. Unfamiliar noise, and noise during the first and last two hours of sleep, has the greatest disruptive effect on the sleep cycle.

- The "natural alarm clock" which enables some people to wake up more or less when they want to is caused by a burst of the stress hormone adrenocorticotropin. Researchers say this reflects an unconscious anticipation of the stress of waking up.

- Some sleeping tablets, such as barbiturates suppress REM sleep, which can be harmful over a long period.

- In insomnia following bereavement, sleeping pills can disrupt grieving.

- Tiny luminous rays from a digital alarm clock can be enough to disrupt the sleep cycle even if you do not fully wake. The light turns off a "neural switch" in the brain, causing levels of a key sleep chemical to decline within minutes.

- To drop off we must cool off; body temperature and the brain's sleep-wake cycle are closely linked. That's why hot summer nights can cause a restless sleep. The blood flow mechanism that transfers core body heat to the skin works best between 18 and 30 degrees. But later in life, the comfort zone shrinks to between 23 and 25 degrees - one reason why older people have more sleep disorders.

- A night on the grog will help you get to sleep but it will be a light slumber and you won't dream much.

- After five nights of partial sleep deprivation, three drinks will have the same effect on your body as six would when you've slept enough.

- Humans sleep on average around three hours less than other primates like chimps, rhesus monkeys, squirrel monkeys and baboons, all of whom sleep for 10 hours.

- Ducks at risk of attack by predators are able to balance the need for sleep and survival, keeping one half of the brain awake while the other slips into sleep mode.

- Ten per cent of snorers have sleep apnoea, a disorder which causes sufferers to stop breathing up to 300 times a night and significantly increases the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.

- Snoring occurs only in non-REM sleep

- Teenagers need as much sleep as small children (about 10 hrs) while those over 65 need the least of all (about six hours). For the average adult aged 25-55, eight hours is considered optimal

- Some studies suggest women need up to an hour's extra sleep a night compared to men, and not getting it may be one reason women are much more susceptible to depression than men.

- Feeling tired can feel normal after a short time. Those deliberately deprived of sleep for research initially noticed greatly the effects on their alertness, mood and physical performance, but the awareness dropped off after the first few days.

- Diaries from the pre-electric-light-globe Victorian era show adults slept nine to 10 hours a night with periods of rest changing with the seasons in line with sunrise and sunsets.

- Most of what we know about sleep we've learned in the past 25 years.

- As a group, 18 to 24 year-olds deprived of sleep suffer more from impaired performance than older adults.

- Experts say one of the most alluring sleep distractions is the 24-hour accessibility of the internet.

- The extra-hour of sleep received when clocks are put back at the start of daylight in Canada has been found to coincide with a fall in the number of road accidents.

I just got bored and watched Knives over Forks.....I dont eat anything other than eggwhites that are from animals....I dont worry about myself and cancer., bu I worry about my parents, now both 65

in tbe movie,. Dr Esselstyn  says how he learned the info to write his book...via the China Study and research

but NO animal protein?
so I need to stop eating eggwhites..
he goes into 2 parts about protein
1 how without it, you will die...you don't need carbs(sugar) or fat as much as you must have protein
2 he showed a graph that showed how much animal protein was consumed in a country and then a graph next to it of cancer in that country
the graphs were all about identical, cept the cancer graph was 20% taller

I found this high yield facts about the diet and the biggest concern I have is EGGWHITEs? no eggwhites....I'd better start eating rice protein and get my protein elsewhere....dang it??

The Esselstyn Rules:

    No meat, no poultry, no fish--not even salmon
    No dairy of any kind--not even skim milk or non-fat yogurt.
   No eggs--not even egg whites or Egg Beaters
    No oil--not even virgin olive oil or canola oil
    Aim for 100% Whole Grain products. Ingredients must say, Whole Wheat, or Whole Buckwheat, Whole Rye,etc. 100% stone-ground wheat is not Whole Wheat unless the word Whole appears.  Forget about semolina flour in pasta.  Forget about white rice.  I thought my Barilla Plus multigrain pasta was fantastic--turns out, semolina is the number one ingredient.
    Do not drink juice. Fruit is fine.  A little juice used to saute, or season recipes or for salad dressings is fine
    Do not eat nuts, even walnuts, unless you do not have heart disease.
    Do not eat avocados, if you have heart disease.
    Do not eat coconut, if you have heart disease.
    Eat soy products cautiously.  They are high in fat (40% +) and many are highly processed.  Only use Lite Tofu (like Mori-Nu or NaSoya Lite Firm Tofu).  I also use Soy Boy Organic 5 Grain Low Fat Tempeh.
    Reduce sugar as much as possible.  When you do use it for recipes, stick to the more unprocessed varieties.  But don't fool yourself, maple syrup, agave, and ho

Sounds smart.  One thing that kills me are all the guys with monstrous arms and chests in my gym and toothpick calves.  It kind of looks like the Tasmanian Devil...

2 reasons you see huge arms/thin calves

1  guys do what works...big arms/chest attract females..
----size of legs dont attract them or don't matter

2 guys with big upper body wear PANTS that covers their lower body
I wear pants  which look like the ones below  8)

Yeah, it would be a full time job.

I leave it in my smoothie.  Just giving you more health geek information than you can shake a stick at.  Basically, the spinach can bind calcium, so if you're getting calcium at other times, then it's probably not that big of a deal.

that's a questionI sorta have

 I use vitamix to make smoothies, which are filled with whatever veggies I'd never ever eat(I added brussel sprouts to the stuff recently)
1  I make at least one batch of stuff(broccoli/spinach/brussel sprouts/rice protien/ organic apples/carrots/distilled water) I then try to get it all down to make at another batch, so I have 2  aday,
I rarely clean it... I do run a wet towel in it and get 95% of all the stuff out of it, but why clean it 100%?  I see no point?


2 If I can't drink it all at once, I'll leave it sit and fcome back to it later(it stays cold, as I dont use heat in my home)  I will mix it via the vitamix(which it sits in) the only issue I have with that is BPA leeching from the vitamix pitcher
it says its BPA free, but I've seen this--any thoughts?
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/science_news/bpa.html
Hereís the problem with the new BPA-free bottles: they may contain biodegradable plastic substitutes (BPS), or other similar toxic chemicals that have NOT been mentioned by the manufacturers. BPS appears to have similar hormone-mimicking characteristics, which are similar to BPA. Do you think we should wait for an industry study for safety results?
