Ive provided real links to back up my opinions. My program worked for me.

Calling troll is last resort of a weak mind.

But now that I've done T shots and I'm off them, my T levels are ridiculously low. I'll be going back to my urologist in a week, and we may do the implanted, slow-release "seeds." But I seem to also have apnea now, and I've been reading that T therapy is contraindicated when treating apnea. So I'm not sure what's in store next...
Iím no doc but I would urge you not to get back on the juice

Good luck to u no matter what u decide

Or just an indication that we're not falling for your bullshit. That you think you've made a compelling case is laughable.

As I said - if it works for you, cool. You don't know enough to advise others.

Let's just say a lot of people here have a bone to pick with bsanders33, and that more stiff criticism will be coming.

Nope, and I never will.

I just don't want to throw out every single thing BS33 says, simply because some/much of it is messed up. He had one point in there about ashwagandha that looks like there is some legit research to back it up, from what I'm reading. So I'm curious about that.

But, yeah, I agree he's a little too "anti-big-pharma" and the medical industry. And I agree there are legitimate, documented concerns about consistency and quality in the supplements industry, that he seems to be blowing off. But if we're all committed to learning and researching, we shouldn't completely discredit somebody who brings an alternative view, even if we disagree strongly with some of what they're presenting. Baby and the bath water, IMO.

Oh... so there's a backstory here.

Edit: just caught the puns.
