Thread Name: Info on Cider Vinegar please.
Subject: RE: Info on Cider Vinegar please.
So much unscientific mumbo jumbo in this thread it boggles the mind.

To address just one:

"aspirin works because it neutralizes the acids produced by inflamed muscles and makes the muscles stop hurting."

Erm, no. Aspirin itself is an acid - acetylsalicylic acid so it cannot and does not do any such thing. The anti-inflammatory effect of aspirin is due to it's inhibition of an enzyme, cyclo-oxygenase, a mediator in the production of prostaglandins which are substances responsible for inflammation. Dr. John Vane received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1982 for his role in discovering the mode of action of aspirin.
