A London based BA intern passed after working 3 days straight without sleep. He was paid...but uh, well what can I say? A tragedy.

Can you imagine, a man giving his life for BA? I hope one of our Justice Department lawyers mentions that IF BA gets convicted in the upcoming, and loooooong promised Wall Street prosecutions (my gut tells me it will all end up civil). If I was a prosecutor, I would definitely bring this up in the sentencing phase of the proceeding if they were convicted of anything.

Moving on to a related topic but away from this young man:

Let this stand as a lesson for the tax preparers here. You vets know how to handle the pressure. the strain, the sudden black-outs and full scale collapses of the tax season....so make sure your employees are giving some of the health advice I've been passing along here for years now (remember beet juice), judicious use of a multi B & a C. If you are indoors a lot, a D. Eat a banana or drink orange juice for the K. Calcium should be derived from food if possible, with plain, low fat yogurt leading the list of bioavailable sources.

By all means learn to cook and eat calves' liver. Liver and onions and don't listen to a word a doctor ever says against it. (I know some people can't stand it, but it's usually because they don't know how to cook it). Liver once a month will help you a lot.

By God, all of you need to go through some training starting three months before January. As tax preparers you need to overeat during the holidays. Eat and sleep and don't shop and you'll be in good shape for the season. Hibernate. Carry on like a lazy Nero would.

I think there's only one member here who could take on a tax season at any time, like a fireman does a fire, and that would probably be Deback. I thought she was failing a year ago, and I come to find out she roofed her own house. When her doctor went rooftop to check her heart, HE had a massive heart attack and Deback had to carry him down the ladder and call 911 for him.

Hey, she says juice and pizza does it...I thought she was wrong, but I was proven wrong. Please everyone, put yourself through some training exercises. By all means help your young employees get acclimated to the tax environment.

I have some exercises I got from youtube and I'm going to find them and post them here this week. Yes, they are low impact and I do them even though I'm strong as an ox and I could prolly do maximum impact. But I don't want to build up too much bulk and look like a muscle man in my clothes.

Here are the exercises I follow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXOkQBBkHww

(I do not have ME or chronic fatigue, but I exercise as if I do).

Hey, I love calves liver. I also like beef tongue, and pigs feet... really. I am originally from AR. However, as you say, my heart Dr says no to all of these. I think maybe eating too much of these in my youth did me in. Of course, lots of time, this was all we had to eat.

The "cholesterol" theory of heart disease is a fraud that medicine has perpetrated on itself, and now they are so far out on a limb with it they can't climb back to the tree. In other words, many doctors know themselves that this theory is a failure, but it's hard to claw back from it.

You can have problems with cholesterol once inflamation has set in in the blood vessels, but immflation is one of the main roots of the problem.

As people get older, food itself becomes the most bioavailable source of nutrients: by far. One good serving a calves' liver will cover most of a normal persons vitamin/mineral needs for a month (with the exception of the water soluable ones). And it contains a substantial portion of protein too, and most importantly it is well assimilated by the body.

On the subject of calcium:

I feel sorry for all the seniors out there taking calcium pills. Especially those who take calcium without also taking a drug in the Foxamax family (or the newer drugs that do that job that Fosamax did). Calcium pills alone will cause calcium to just float around in your blood and ultimately settle in the heart and blood vessels and harden those systems. A cheap way to avoid this is to stop taking calcium pills and start drinking more milk and by all means eat no-fat plain yogurt.

It would be ideal if people got most of their calcium before they were 50, but that is probably not going to happen in America.

If you are a lady or a man on a medicine to help your bones absorb calcium (instead of your heart and your blood vessels), then by all means take your prescription and take your calcium pills as the doctor directs.

If you ever decide to go off statins, please let me know and I'll give you some lay advice (for what it's worth) or read over this now deceased lady's research: http://www.mgwater.com/statin.shtml

Mildred Seelig, MD was a very prominent and very legitimate magnesium researcher. (We don't get enough Mg in our diet in America.) If you take Mg, the ONLY supplement that will do you any good is magnesium citrate. Send me a message here and I'll tell you how to find this supplement very cheaply and safely. People with kidney problems should not supplement with Mg without consulting with their doctor first!

Mildred Seeling has also written a book for lay readers and I'll try to post the name of it today. Remember: magnesium citrate. There is a way to get it very cheaply and safely.

Crow, you should probably mention that if a person has already had one heart attack, they should take a statin, but by all means talk to the doctor about supplementing with CoQ10, and the judicious use of Mg.

Research does tend to support the use of statins after the first heart attack. Whether this research is trustworthy or not is another huge issue in modern medicine which I don't feel like getting into today.

Finally, if any of you out there are trying to get your MG by taking magnesium oxide, you are throwing your money out the window.
