From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have high cholesterol and wondered how likely this can be controlled by a vegan diet. I'm unable to tolerate cholesterol medication.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
only Alprazolam seems to relieve arthritis pain. I'm building a tolerance to most of the narcotics. But my ailments are permanent and I don't want to take or can afford anything stronger.
