Hi Harry, saw this on twitter this afternoon and immediately thought of you...http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/03/070311202024.htm
although an older article, I'd be interested to follow up.

Thanks, Gayle!

The research on cocoa and coffee continues to impress me.

I touched upon the information you linked to in this recent Healthy Fellow column:

http://www.healthyfellow.com/201/cocoa-coffee-and-cancer/

I personally make sure to get a daily dose of both (pure, organic) cacao and coffee. They are both "superfoods" in my book. :-)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I enjoy reading all your positive Tweets. :-)

That looks good enough to eat Harry! I was wondering if you ever came across people that have too much calcium in thier bodies. I wonder if maybe people with fibromyalgia may have that.

Harry said...

Thanks, Paul!

I've read quite often about a lack of magnesium possibly playing a role in Fibromyalgia symptoms. Getting excessive quantities of calcium from food and supplements is possible. Getting INadequate magnesium from the average diet (and without careful supplementation) is a very real possibility as well.

This article may be of interest with regard to magnesium and FM:

http://web.mit.edu/london/www/magnesium.html#Suggestion

A quick search turned up a scientific abstract that actually suggests that lower than normal intracellular concentrations of calcium may be present in FM patients.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11449822

Same goes with magnesium, it seems:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11155461

And then there's this:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18634773

The latter seems to indicate a disturbance in the processing and retention of certain minerals (like calcium and magnesium) in those with FM.

FM is often considered a very complicated syndrome to manage. The treatments vary widely but magnesium is very commonly among them.

I hope that helps a little. :-)
