    @Lazarus, lots of good info in your post. I was thinking it might be bacterial because I developed some mild sinus congestion about week ago, which wasn't present for the first three weeks. And, like...

    How to deal with antibiotics?

    I've been sick with a very mild bronchitis for about a month. The only real symptoms are some mild congestion and a productive cough that simply won't go away.

    I've been wanting to try BPC for around a year or two, but I love black coffee too much. I roast and grind my coffee fresh - putting anything else in it feels like I'm tainting it. :(

    I don't think a dessert would stimulate your appetite for real food. If anything, it would stimulate the appetite for more dessert.

    Are you kidding? There are less than 500 billionaires in the US. 1% may appear to be a marginal amount on paper, but if you're going to compare 1% of the US population with the number of its...

    I've probably eaten it in restaurant foods here and there, but I avoid it in just about everything else. Most pre-packaged foods that contain it have loads of other shit I wouldn't want to eat anyway.
