My wife has us eating similar to this (except she is a now vegan) while I still eat meat. Fruit smoothies in the morning, lots of leafy greens etc. So far so good.

Way to go.

I think meat is ok, provided you don't burn it.

Whats the problem with "burned meat" ?

I BBQ a lot, and the meat is always charred. I like it that way....but why isnt it good ?

I heard it gives you cancer... but only if you literally burn it to a crisp and eat a lot of it Consider

Heard that too. My mum also tells me to add some lemon to everything that's been grilled and even slightly burned, because it somehow stops the cancer-inducing thingies Consider

Haven't crosschecked it Tongue

RE: Medical advice
Yo.

I've been experiencing significant back pain issues recently, so I figured I'd go for some advice. Here's the major parts;

I've had minor back issues for quite some time but pain has been intermittent to say the least, often taking years between manifestations. First time I remember a significant occurrence was in primary school about Year 5, which stopped hurting within the week.

At the end of last year (I made a few posts about it some may recall) where my back suddenly started hurting and got progressively worse over the course of about two months prior to my going to hospital as I could not move my neck or back without massive spikes of agony (up to 9 on the pain scale) and it was becoming difficult to breath due to the pain involved with the action. At this time my left arm was also incredibly sore.
When my mother took me to hospital, the doctor focussed on my arm which has a loooong history, prescribed Endone for pain management and said rest. After a few weeks I was back to my usual ornery self.

Then it started up again about a few months ago this year; pain moved from just below my left shoulder-blade straight up to the base of my skull and slowly become uniform across my upper back around the shoulder blades. (Same process which occurred before)
I saw my GP about two weeks after the pain first reappeared (I've got a bit of an aversion for seeing doctors), he said my muscles around my neck and shoulder-blades were in spasm and causing pain in response to having Scoliosis. Doc said painkillers and to improve my posture. At the time I spent most of my time with my head forward and slouching, with a constant head-tilt and a tended to put all my weight on one leg when standing, my posture has improved and the pain has decreased but it is still very noticeable.
When I last saw my doctor about it, after a major spike of pain laid me out for about three days, he recommended acupuncture to try to relieve pain the pain and speed thing up a bit since progress has been slow. That was about two-three odd weeks ago; never got around to the acupuncture (costing around 75 bucks which I don't have and is not covered by Medicare) and the pain is slowly becoming less noticeable but is still very present.

Now, generally I trust that doc, he's good at his job but I have no confidence in acupuncture at all. What's the opinions of those reading? Just stick to the slow, working method or try to save up and go for the back-stabbing? Any alternatives to the alternate?

Also, anybody else hear of pain from an injury sustained many, many years ago continuing to spike under certain circumstances with seemingly no physical damaged to the healed injury?
I ask because of my arm; I inflicted an avulsion fracture on the tip of my left humerus a long time ago and has since healed, but it does tend to still hurt or just feel off, and there doesn't seem to be any reason for it. Personally I think it's just psychological, so I don't tend to mention it to doctors when I can avoid it, but I figured while I'm here...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

RE: Medical advice
I'm still waiting for one of the Doc's to tell whats up the charred meat.

I BBQ at least twice a week so......

I figure at my age and that I drink and smoke to much, the charred meat is the least of my problems, but if theres something going on with this, I'd like to know.

Sounds to me like you sorely need a second opinion, or a specialist...

Not sure if that pun was deliberate, or an accident...

meat contains fat. When we overheat fats they're not good for your arteries or your general health.
