You should cease cycling until you’ve seen a cardiologist!

Who diagnosed the Long QT Syndrome?

Re: Homeopathy, does it work?

Another example of the homeopathic found in modern medicine is, ironically, immunisation. Dead cells (sometimes live but benign ones) of a disease are used to stimulate the body's auto-immunity responses. There is a mechanism at work that can be demonstrated, tested and otherwise shown to work by m...

Re: Homeopathy, does it work?

In fact, homeopathy is very much part of "Western medical thought", being the forerunner of many of today's medical practices and beliefs. For example, we still believe that a single substance (the drug) can treat a single condition or disease. This belief is problematic in an all too fam...

I’m doing the Seascale to Whitby coast to coast in one day at the end of the month. Think it’s around 155 miles (and has an incline or two).

Re: Wahoo Elemnt - simple question

Yes, I believed it will. Although I’ve not tested it to do so. I have the Elemnt Bolt - just moved over from Garmin. I was pleasantly surprised to find (on here) you can change routes, end routes, start new routes and record the whole thing as one ride. I’ve tested it and it works. However I’ve only...

Re: Homeopathy, does it work?

I was riding along today and reflecting about this thread. This is what came to mind: Let's assume that someone is moved by a piece of music and feels better as a result. You won't find any molecules of music. And it would be almost impossible to prove (even if you wanted to) that the music actuall...

Not to mention Thalidomide. Thalidomide is a great drug, it’s used in transplant patients and skin cancer treatment. If we’d have had the rigorous trials when it was introduced here it would never have been licensed as an antiemetic during pregnancy (the FDA did not grant a license to it). Try tell...
