I think you've answered yourslf,Dan..but as to cause

In Response To: Gratitude,Experiences and a Question........ (Dan Clizer ( O ))
that's something I've puzzled over a lot myself.The reason I'm putting it on the board rather than an email to you is because a lot of us must wonder about this..and the result is that, like you, we hesitate to give advice when we don't even know the answer ourselves.I mean yes,the diet will make it go away and that might be all that interests him right now.But what about all those people you and I know that do just fine eating everything all their life.My father lived to 98, and my mother to 97...they ate carefully as they got older but never what could be described as er4yt! A little arthritis in their hands, but not all over like your friend and like me.So what's the difference? If it was just lectins everybody should be hurting! The most obvious is how different life was 100 years ago(that's how long ago they were born!!) in the way of food and environment...not in stress, because life has been stressful clear back to our"cave man" ancestors and I think I've read that rheumatoid arthritis is only a few hundred years old or less;not osteo arthritis which is as old as man. I wondered "Why Me?" as we all do, and ended up just grateful that I didn't have anything worse!?! The phrase Bush Pilot embarrases me(like calling yourself a "cowboy" somehow)but really it's what I have been doing for 35 years and 20,000 hours and there is a tremendous amount of stress at times...really bad weather is probably the main one.But when I was young I used to drive a race car for fun!! So I think lots of us are built for that(O's?)I mean..I'm still doing the same things and all I did was eat different things and it went away....!?!
That's a young guy, that friend of yours and I was about his age when it hit me...once I found out it was something I was eating I just figured "Okay..I've got arthritis. It comes right back at me if I forget or get careless,but I know what I can do to not make it hurt. So it's not a cure..but it beats Indocin!!"
