Excersice and diuretics has had a shaky begining when the horse racing industry became a big money earner (the jockies need to lose weight). Not good for health!!

I must ask you where you got the idea that excersice is a "diuretic". During excersice the kidneys nephrons shunt water from the loop of Henley, and retain fluids for sweating and loss of water through the lungs. Please remember excersice stimulates sympathetic nervous control and excretion is under parasympathetic control....... I will go into the complexes of detailed physiology if you want. I haven't studied this stuff since second year medical scool!! You did make me check this in my physiology texts which is a good thing though. Excersice does produce water from the resperation of glucose to water and carbon dioxide. This may explain the extra urine outflow you may be experienceing???

Also, a quote I will take from Dr Jeffery Bland Ph.D(World leading nutritionalist) on the subject of "moderate" consumption of drinks such as coffee............"moderate consumption of these things lead to moderate health." Thats fine if you want "moderate" health but I want optimal health instead. Under my oath I took on graduation I "swore" to give the best medical advice. It is therefore "unethical" for me to recommend a toxic drink that is a well known carcinogen even at moderate doses. Remember I am not looking at studies in a vacume where these people consumed coffee alone. These people consumed normal diets also. I'm sure they didn't comsume diets they thought would give them cancer also!!!

Personally I find it hard to support a known carcinogen, which has no nutrients in it?? Why not use green tea?? Ginger tea??

Thanks for the comments. I am glad people are giving this subject thought and glad that people are hearing differing opinions. It is good for the board I believe!!
