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."

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Cancer_Protection
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.

Check these out:

http://www.bmj.com/content/310/6983/827.abstract

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?

Yes, NSAIDs can affect sexual function.  Not in everyone, of course...

But mostly they can damage your GI and make your life incredibly miserable.

Sorry, I've got a big ol' blender that will I could use to turn an oak stump into wood chips if I wanted...

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:

http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Accumulation+of+Cd,+Pb+and+Zn+in+Tribulus+terrestris+L.+grown+on...-a0253057775

I checked with NOW and this is the email they sent me:

Dear watchntv;

We carefully screen material for heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and of course arsenic. Each individual heavy metal such as Lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic, are required to meet our strict specifications.
 
We are one of the few Supplement companies in the country with onsite heavy metal testing. See here for more info:
 
http://www.nowfoods.com/Quality/QualityNotes/M102794.htm?cat=NOW%20News
 
<2000ppb Lead; <2000ppb Arsenic <820ppb Cadmium; <400ppb Mercury
 
While we've had no issues with our suppliers or Tribulus, an example is Rice syrup that has had arsenic reported in the media as a concern but fortunately our material typically tests at undetectable levels of arsenic down to the parts per trillion. Something we can confirm inhouse.

And of course see our Quality Site for more info on our millions of dollars in lab facilities:

A few questions
B Vitamins.  Megadosing on B vitamins was once quite the health fad.  Now it is known to whack memory and neurons.
there was no citation for this, so "5-hour energy" makes people into drooling idiots?

CoQ10. A 2009 study discovered that supplementing mice to an equivalent human doses of 1700 mg/day led to hearing and memory loss. [4]  1700 mg is a very high daily dose but these high levels have been explored for various conditions including ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). [5] 

I take CoZ10 at 100mg/day, who is taking 1700mg a day? is CoQ10 found in foods that I might be eating and therefor getting a lot more than I realized?
I take it to inhibit/reduce tnf levels
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Supplements_And_Vitamins

I question minor stuff like this just because I dont understand,
I have had good results with doing what your site recommends I do, I will post a thread about my results later.

This has a nice summary of some research on pyroxidine (Vitamin B6):

And, yes, that would be a huge dose of CoQ10.  Interestingly enough, a young girl was apparently cured by taking megadoses, but she was deficient:

now Im kicking myself
Over the weekend, I went to my sisters law school graduation and my family at The Cheesecake Factory
I had coffee, veggie burger, salad, and strawberries and dipping sauces(whip cream and hot fudge), so about 10 strawberries, not much sugary goodness.
my family, who all hadnt seen me in a month, all commented  on my fat-loss/skinny face, all had very hedonistic meals.
Worse,, my brother in law, the guy who has high cholesterol, even though he's not fat, no pot belly,etc. ate just an awful meal, french fries and a Macaroni and Cheese Burger
a burger with a side of mac/cheee on it
then he and my sister shared a reese cheesecake for dessert

I didnt even have bread!
I had the
SkinnyLicious™ Veggie Burger

A Delicious “Burger” Made with Brown Rice, Farro, Black Beans, Fresh Beets & Onion. Served on a Toasted Bun with Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Pickles & Mayo. Served with a Green Salad
http://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/menu/skinnylicious/skinny_veggie_burger
PER SERVING (entire order): 530 calories, 3g saturated fat, 1,288mg sodium, 85g carbs(thats with Mayo, I had no mayo, add in a pinapple)
but I thought I did well picking that burger, but I think not, after seeing
(Im not sure if that burger is a "prepared" food item
Excitotoxins.  Fast food is loaded with excitotoxins, particularly glutamates.  Glutamates head straight for your hypothalamus and wreak havoc therein.  As your hypothalamus is slowly damaged, the thyroid and gonads are often affected as well.  Excitotoxins are particularly common in anything "prepared", such as Veggie Burgers, nuggets, breadings, etc.
http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Fast_Food_Testosterone_Erectile

A person issue is going on  in my life as well.
I am bothered by the FDA lying to people about transfats, as in .5g=0
but I am doing this contest to lose weight(not fat), even though I am eating/lifting to retain muscle,...the problem  I have is the contest is 50miles away from me(round trip) and the winner will get $~1k-$2k.  I have been winning. the rules say, .you can miss the weekly meetings, but have to pay $5fine
$5<<<driving 50miles
so I've missed 2 meetings
and now I'm told if I dont go, I''ll kicked out....THOSE ARENT THE RULES
I was told the reason was because by not going I am, "being unfair to those who go."
Im greatly confused by this; I'm following the rules.  if the rules are bad, CHANGE THE RULES

People dont make a lot of sense to me

You gave me a good laugh!  SkinnyLicious, eh? They must have almost fallen out of their chairs when you ordered coffee, veggie burger, salad, and strawberries.  I think you forgot the basic dietary rules for eating out in American: you haven't really eaten out unless you've consumed over 1000 calories, 80 grams of fat, 2 grams of salt and 40 grams of fructose.  You only got about 2% of your RDA by those rules...

Also, I didn't mean to imply that all veggie burgers have excitotoxins in them.  Maybe they went easy on your hypothalamus - who knows?

No, the contest doesn't make any sense, but of course they are Zeus in their own realm and have decided to send a little lightning on your head...

I can't find the nutrition of the mac and cheese burger,but if you add a side of mac/cheese to a burger its about :
burger 1399  26 saturated
fries ,,574 10
side mac/cheese   1309 51
 
so you are about right the total calories of the american diet!
 howd you know?!!

I know you are right about the unknown, a chain like Red Robin, uses veggie burgers you can buy at the store Im not sure about cheesecake factory

No, the contest doesn't make any sense, but of course they are Zeus in their own realm and have decided to send a little lightning on your head...

exactly, they have a taste of power and they are all idiots, they made rules, so that means they also have to follow them
my sister is now a lawyer, my parents are both lawyers, which means all my life I've been taught/shown to follow contracts/rules.

Before I first joined, I read the rules and thats what I follow
so it gripes me like crazy when the contest coordinator tells me")(verbatim)

"Unfortunately I cannot allow you to remain in the challenge if you are not going to attend the classes and weigh in.  You see, it is not fair to the other participants who are weighing in on a weekly basis and getting their scans done.  We have in fact fielded several inquiries about what you are up to and frankly taking a lot of heat because you have not been weighing in.

I definitely understand the inconvenience of the long travel and the associated costs but you were definitely aware of where the challenge was prior to beginning it.  You will be removed from the leader board this week, pending your ability to get your scan in that is now overdue and start attending the remaining classes."


I was also aware of the rules, which say

6.   If the participant is a “no-show” for a weekly meeting they pay $5.00 for the class missed.  Everyone gets one excused absence – not having to pay the $5.00.


so I miss a class, no big deal, it costs me $5, but thats it. nothing about "fairness" or being kicked out cause I miss too many classes.


 nothing about any scans cept
7.   We reserve the right to disqualify any person(s) who we find to be engaging in unsafe methods for drastic weight loss or causing negative impact to the success of the Challenge.  This may in part be determined by scan results during the competition.
a scan is a biometric impedence test, so hydration levels affect the results greatly, which is important why for a  weight loss challenge?
I asked jerry a ton of questions, which he never really answered for me to any quality, but he did tell me
Jerry
I wont be home til the 30th
I still am not understanding how the scan will impact winning or not?
is this the weigh in?
-watchntv


Hi watchntv

Has nothing to do with the weigh ins or winning - has to do with you knowing your numbers so you can know how to target your eating and know where you stand now.

Nothing complicated about it it - please do not overthink it. 
Best,
Jerry


so Im not making up the rules, they are, I just ask that they follow them
why is that so hard?

LOL
thats what I asked my parents about, if I get kicked out of the WLC(weight loss challenge) can I sue for damages; damages being the prize I'd win
or just the $29 I paid to enter this contest,

my parents told me to go do better things with my time than waste my time on a suit

this dude hasnt responded to my, "Im just following the rules you gave me, why are you making new rules to bother me?"
-type email I sent to him
so Im gonna go early and talk to him about this

hes one of those naturally skinny dudes(likely leptin senstive) and has as much muscle on his 5'11",  140lbs frame as I have on in my leg leg.

Never thought of that issue.  Supposedly, the harder plastics are more safe, since they use phthalate esters to soften the material:
