[quote=Sicknote;266593]Dave, lets not turn this into rocket science.
Poor dietary choices can have an arthritic effect on the body. I've proven it myself from coming off numerous detox's. One example was consuming cows milk which made my knees hurt.
It all goes downstairs.
What goes into the body can largely determine the health of your body.
i dont know what you mean by "lets not turn this in to rocket science"? Principle of a rocket launch is based on Newtons III law, Every action has an equal and opposit reaction. isn't this the point you are making, when you say "What goes into the body can largely determine the health of your body".
The quotes you mentioned Sicknote, dont mean anything. because they are jus quotes. Show me a study to substantiate your view, otherwise its all
lets not bother with quotes from a so called would be published study.
anyway, the topic of this thread was what are the possible reasons for Gout affecting the first MTP joint predominently?
Reduced Blood flow
increased stress/strain (biomechanical)
Sicknote, Milk actually reduces serum uric acid levels in patients with gout. See the study below.
