  1. I pinned that and featured it for you man, this should be at the top for all members to see.
  2. No it’s coming up this Saturday!
  3. Merry Christmas everyone! Another year older, a lot wiser I think lol. Remember, without health you've got nothing. Take care all.
  4. Ah I got ya. Dang! And don’t be scared to create a thread called “GainTrains” bitches lol sorry 88 I’m sure these will be in your spank bank tonight lol
  5. Nice man! Curious of the watermark tho lol? What’s up with that?
  6. Lol Pffft a shed. Get out in The open haha. Mine is on my deck up here in northern Ontario and no snow storm or -35 holds me back from the grill lol
  7. This is false info. I’ve never read one article on LGD that says this, I’ve read a ton. In fact, LGD 4033 is one of the sarms out there that has the most testing. I think you’re thinking of S23. Here is a good article With a bunch of studies on LGD from 2010. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4111291/
  8. Lol this pic belongs on that “ball hang receiver hitch” thread ha
  9. That’s crazy I’ve never heard of that. I run 10mg everyday in the am. Never had insomnia from it ever and I’ve run LGD a lot. Yeah lgd is good shit for sure. Try to take it as early in the morning as you can. It may help with the insomnia
  10. Also another way which lands you roughly in the same spot take the ball of your thumb and put that in your hip bone and pretend you’re using hour hand like a gun pointing it forward. Spread all your fingers out from the index(pointing finger) out and where the tip of your pinky lands, shoot in and around there.
  11. Fuck that YouTube knee joint pinky shit. Too low! Where I said is the spot it works out to the sweep of the upper quad.
  12. @eightyeight14 you’re doing your quads too low. The sweet spot is this. This is a tried and true method I’ve used for 10 years. With your arm to the side, Put the ball of your hand on your hip bone. Stretch your fingers out and where your middle finger points shoot there. Like butter all the time. Never any blood or nerve hits. This may seem high but trust me it’s the spot! Try it and thank me later
  13. Like this ?? lol it’s different I know, but haha
  14. Good Fucking job man, big difference. 60lbs is sick. Keep at it for the next year, you have a ton of muscle under there still. Good job man, hats off to you.
  15. Also your blood pressure isn’t even that high, it’s at the edge of high norm...see chart below.
  16. Participants who ate a diet high in red and processed meat, fried food, refined grains and high-fat dairy were three times more likely to develop an eye condition that damages the retina and affects a person's central vision, according to the results of a study from the University at Buffalo. The condition is called late-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is an irreversible condition that affects a person's central vision, taking away their ability to drive, among other common daily activities. "Treatment for late, neovascular AMD is invasive and expensive, and there is no treatment for geographic atrophy, the other form of late AMD that also causes vision loss. It is in our best interest to catch this condition early and prevent development of late AMD," said Shruti Dighe, who conducted the research as part of her master's in epidemiology at UB's School of Public Health and Health Professions. And that's why the finding that diet plays a role in AMD is so intriguing, added Dighe, who is now pursuing her PhD in cancer sciences at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. It turns out that a Western dietary pattern, one defined as high in consumption of red and processed meat, fried food, refined grains and high-fat dairy, may be a risk factor for developing late AMD. However, a Western diet was not associated with development of early AMD in the study, published this month in the British Journal of Ophthalmology. The authors studied the occurrence of early and late AMD over approximately 18 years of follow-up among participants of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study. Dighe and colleagues used data on 66 different foods that participants self-reported consuming between 1987 and 1995 and identified two diet patterns in this cohort -- Western and what researchers commonly refer to as "prudent" (healthy) -- that best explained the greatest variation between diets. "What we observed in this study was that people who had no AMD or early AMD at the start of our study and reported frequently consuming unhealthy foods were more likely to develop vison-threatening, late stage disease approximately 18 years later," said study senior author Amy Millen, PhD, associate professor and associate chair of epidemiology and environmental health at UB. This U.S.-based study is one of the first examining diet patterns and development of AMD over time. The other studies were conducted in European cohorts. Early AMD is asymptomatic, meaning that people often don't know that they have it. To catch it, a physician would have to review a photo of the person's retina, looking for pigmentary changes and development of drusen, or yellow deposits made up of lipids. With early AMD, there could be either atrophy or a buildup of new blood vessels in the part of the eye known as the macula. "When people start developing these changes they will begin to notice visual symptoms. Their vision will start diminishing," Dighe said. "This is advanced or late stage AMD." But not everyone who has early AMD progresses to the more debilitating late stage. To date, most research has been conducted on specific nutrients -- such as high-dose antioxidants -- that seem to have a protective effect. But, Dighe explains, people consume a variety of foods and nutrients, not just one or two, and that's why looking at diet patterns helps tell more of the story. "Our work provides additional evidence that that diet matters," Millen added. "From a public health standpoint, we can tell people that if you have early AMD, it is likely in your best interest to limit your intake of processed meat, fried food, refined grains and high-fat dairy to preserve your vision over time."
  17. If you want to lower your blood pressure take more fish oil. Also get extra strength garlic pills. Take about 3-5000mg of fish oil per day. Guaranteed it’ll lower your blood pressure
  18. Yeah for sure Canada too now that we have legal Mary Jane. But I hear you on the cigs, kids can get those easily through there parents but come on, you think a kid is gunna find his dads test E and then grab a needle and shoot himself up lmao? This is where it’s fucked. I know a 8 year old that smoked his dads butts. No way would he ever grab a needle, scared shitless if that.
  19. Very much agree. It’s so fucking backwards here in North America it sickens me. Who gives a fuck if someone wants to use some gear. No pun intended but this really grinds my gears lol
  20. Yeah For sure eh, Just a slap on the wrist here in Canada lol. I’ve head of his gear “Genomax” before. Guess they’ll be no more.
  21. From just a couple months ago. May be old news to some of you but I figured I’d post the article for anyone like me who just seen this. https://www.nsnews.com/news/steroids-dealer-handed-140k-fine-house-arrest-in-north-vancouver-1.23991832
  22. Vitamin D influences the behaviour of melanoma cells in the lab by making them less aggressive, Cancer Research UK scientists have found. The researchers from the University of Leeds discovered that vitamin D influences the behaviour of a signalling pathway within melanoma cells, which slowed down their growth and stopped them spreading to the lungs in mice. Although this is early research, the findings could ultimately lead to new ways to treat melanoma. The research is published today in Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research. There are around 16,000 new melanoma skin cancer cases in the UK every year, and survival has doubled in the UK in the past 40 years. Around 300 people get diagnosed with melanoma at its latest stage in England each year, when it is aggressive and difficult to treat. Around 55% of people with latest stage melanoma survive their disease for 1 year or more compared to nearly 100% of those diagnosed at the earliest stage. Scientists have previously known that lower levels of vitamin D circulating in the body have been linked to worse outcomes for people with melanoma, but they haven't fully understood the mechanisms that cause this. Professor Newton-Bishop from the University of Leeds and her team wanted to see what processes were being regulated by vitamin D in melanoma cells, and what happens when there is a lack of a protein on the surface of the melanoma cells called a vitamin D receptor (VDR), which enables vitamin D to bind to the cell's surface. The researchers looked at the activity of the gene that makes VDR in 703 human melanoma tumours, and 353 human melanoma tumours that had spread from the initial site. The activity of the VDR gene was cross-referenced with other patient characteristics, such as the thickness of their tumour and how fast their tumor grew. They also wanted to see if the amounts of VDR in human melanoma cells were associated with genetic changes that happen when tumours become more aggressive. They then used mice to check whether VDR levels changed the cancer's ability to spread. The team found that human tumours with low levels of the VDR gene grew faster, and had a lower activity of genes that control pathways that help the immune system fight cancer cells. They also discovered that tumours with lower VDR levels also had a higher activity of genes linked to cancer growth and spread, especially those controlling the Wnt/?-catenin signalling pathway, which helps to modulate a variety of biological processes within the cell, such as its growth. In mice, the researchers found that increasing the amount of VDR on the melanoma cells reduced activity of the Wnt/?-catenin pathway, and slowed down the growth of the melanoma cells. They also found that the cancer was less likely to spread to their lungs. Professor Newton-Bishop said: "After years of research, we finally know how vitamin D works with VDR to influence the behaviour of melanoma cells by reducing activity of the Wnt/?-catenin pathway. This new puzzle piece will help us better understand how melanoma grows and spreads, and hopefully find new targets to control it. "But what's really intriguing, is that we can now see how vitamin D might help the immune system fight cancer. We know when the Wnt/?-catenin pathway is active in melanoma, it can dampen down the immune response causing fewer immune cells to reach the inside of the tumour, where they could potentially fight the cancer better. "Although vitamin D on its own won't treat cancer, we could take insights from the way it works to boost the effects of immunotherapy, which uses the immune system to find and attack cancer cells." Martin Ledwick, Head Information Nurse at Cancer Research UK, said: "Vitamin D is important for our muscle and bone health and the NHS already recommends getting 10 micrograms per day as part of our diet or as supplements, especially in the winter months. "People who have been newly diagnosed with melanoma should have their vitamin D levels checked and managed accordingly. If you are worried about your vitamin D levels, it's best to speak to your doctor who can help ensure you are not deficient."
