Umm, Johnny, dear boy.....I hate to tell you, but you used "e" in a few words after you said you had "e" removed........so what's the real-deal about anyways?? huh?
I'll bet it has something to do with International drug-smuggling, or human slavery, or something like that.

It seems like my varicose veins leave me alone when I cut excess sugar and fat out of my diet. Glycation is probably the main cause of spider and varicose veins—sugar and its metabolic byproducts adhering to protein and extra cellular matrix. Sometimes copper deficiency can be the cause. http://www.alaskaveincare.com/index.php/varic...

Diet and exercise seem to have an effect on varicose veins based on what I have read. My parents are getting up there in years and while I don't think they have had problems with varicose veins, it might be nice to look more into the subject just in case. Luckily, there seem to be a fair amount of treatment options when it comes to problems like that. http://www.reedervein.com/vein-disorders/vari...

This is a classic example of a poster truly embarrassing himself with a truly lame opening comment, and then attempting to salvage the thing with some half-baked, yet perhaps thought-provoking and witty, ending. And which he succeeds in doing. BRAVO, COMMANDER, BRAVO!!!

If this thread goes electric, it will be the first thread on varicose veins in the history of Topix ever to be electrified. I would imagine.

I can still remember, back in the day, when They used an old-fashioned flame for that. These young whippersnappers nowadays really don't have any concept of what it was like back then.
