Gotcha.  So are you saying you picked out of the brands that CL recommended where you could?

no, I found CL really hard to use
I didnt have time to properly use it, those are the brands/products you named off the site, for the most part
a few I just used a spring valley product since they produced something else you said was good

Gotcha.  Well, you may want to check with NOW, which is of course everywhere, on their heavy metal and contaminant policy.  This could sometimes be an issue with trib:

I bought some
http://www.amazon.com/Bertolli-Organic-Pasta-Sauce-jars/dp/B001YJ2XVA
Bertolli Organic Pasta Sauce - 3/24 oz. jars

and now I can stop thinking about the BPA in the jars.....crap
the fda won't even ban BPA


I got an email from my school that my blood test results are in, I cant access them online..so I gotta deal with that tomorrow.....
otherwise, I still need to contact NOW about the various supps I have that might contain lead

I called my dentist, who made me a mouth guard because I grind my teeth 2 years ago, and I dont know if it's BPA free plastic or hopefully, acrylic as that's bpa and philates free, (so I read)

oh, I had a craving for cookies tonight, I just had to have a few
I searched for low saturated fat, low sugar, no trans fats
yeah, those are called ice cubes
these seemed to be the least harmful

http://voices.yahoo.com/cranberry-omega-3-flax-seed-cookies-product-review-1927906.html
Nutrition facts are listed on the front side label:

80 calories- 1 cookie

Calories from fat-30

Total fat-3 grams

Saturated fat-0.5 grams

Trans fat- o grams

Cholesterol- 0 grams

Sugars-5 grams

Don't stress too much!

First of all, with fructose you just want to keep it less than 25 grams per day, maybe 50 grams at the most.  One cookie isn't going to cause problems.  The problem is that most people can't have just one cookie.  I always admired the Dutch people I knew because they would serve one truffle/bon bon.  When they left the room, I was looking around for the box and wanted to mow through the whole thing like the typical American.

And, ideally, you want to get your fructose from fruit, of course, because they're packed with antioxidants, vitamins/minerals and many other great phytochemicals.

If it's in a glass jar, there's no BPA that I know of.  The only thing to watch is the salt content.  But tomato sauce is protective of the prostate as you probably know...

Yes they are glass jars of tomato paste. Usually I get pasta sauce, like Ragu or something, I got tomato paste because of this site
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Skin_Diet
    Lycopene.  The lycopene in tomato sauce, tomato paste and ketchup has been shown in one study to be very protective of your skin from sun damage. [9] Researchers gave participants shown in one study to be very protective of your skin from sun damage. [9] Researchers gave participants the equivalent of 5 tablespoons of tomato paste per day and noticed 33% less damage from UV radiation, which is roughly the equivalent of SPF 1.3.

I also am drinking green tea, sticking my ornish diet, and trying to do what this site says to do, since it is all backed by scienctific studies

Never heard of it. 

No, thx for the vote of confidence.  Of course, I always urge everyone to experiment and find out what works for them:  the studies deal with averages and so it's possible for any one of us to be special.  (Maybe real special in some cases.)

Yes, tomatoes and tomato products are looking good on many fronts.

As I've mentioned, I'm cautious about green tea due to the telomere effect.  I personally avoid it, but I admit it has many great properties and, hey, the Japanese love it, eh?

Comment on the Low Fat: 

I eat a close to Low Fat Diet and feel great on it.  Furthermore, I think that is what the great majority of human history has grown up on and that is what our bodies are used to.  Most meat lovers don't realize that wild game is low fat or darn close and there wasn't any cheese/butter/milk during most of our history! 

So basically you're in good company following how we have eaten for most of our existence.  But see how you feel on it and get your T readings before and after, etc.  Your T is quite low, so be sure to monitor.

Also, you are young.  I can't remember:  did you have any signs of heart disease, hypertension, endothelial dysfunction?  The reason I'm asking is that even Dr. Ornish points out that if you don't have heart disease,  you really have a "spectrum" of options available to you and you don't have to stick to a rigid Low Fat Diet.  He discusses this on his site here:

http://www.ornishspectrum.com/proven-program/

Again, I wish I'd eaten Low Fat from day one, but if someone has no heart disease, is young and follows, say, a Mediterranean Diet, all of the evidence says they will very likely live a long and healthy life.

I would eat more fruit and broccoli, even kale if I wouldnt have to
heat it up
eat it
chew it
taste it

so if I had a blender, like Magic Bullet Blender, which could make it into a shake, I'd eat more.
but do any of these things work?
the magic bullet or anything that does that stuff they show on informericals, do any of them work?

would you expound on this:

"Baby Aspirin.  A recent Lancet publication found a lowering in risk for various oesophageal, pancreatic, brain, stomach, colorectal, prostate and lung cancers. [30] Not bad for one little pill, eh?  CAUTION:  Aspirin is an NSAID and, as such, increases the risk of bleeding and/or ulcers. [31] Some NSAIDs have the side effect of decreasing erectile strength."

by the way, for tea....Go with Yerba Mate. I actually love the earthy taste. And it blows green tea out of the water (never mind black tea) for health benefits.

that said i still have my green tea/ginseng tea blend from time to time.

Even a baby aspirin can increase your GI risk.  Why risk it when you can live superhealthy by using more natural, safe means?  Imo the whole aspirin thing just ties into the desire to solve health problems with a pill.

I dont take ibuprofen for aches/pains, I dont like taking anything, I assume the body knows what it's doing.
I always take baby aspirin before I go to sleep at night, you are saying this could hurt my erectile strength?

I agree with people wanting a pill to cure all, I mostly just want a  kick-ass blender!  er, like Magic Bullet Blender?
