i like the cherries and pineapple.
i drink alot of Rooibos tea from s africa which is meant to be pretty good for prostate cancer and the like.
i have not had an attack of gout for about 6 months so hopefully i wont end up like my ancestor THomas Pye dying in a workhouse from chronic gout.

cheers

Hi Iain  :)

Sorry, didn't mean to freak you out - I sort of didn't clock the second part of your initial message where you said you had it yourself  :-[

Anyway, I think it would be difficult to "die of gout" in this day and age.  The point of my message was to point out that in the "good old days", gout might have been the only obvious symptom of a deeper problem which was the actual cause of death.

I wonder if they didn't mean "gout of the stomach", basically ulcers and the like, caused by excessive alcohol intake.
I am Australian, from all the lands I come (my ancestors, at least!)

Pine/Pyne, Dowdeswell, Kempster, Sando/Sandoe/Sandow, Nancarrow, Carrington, Hounslow, Youatt, Richardson, Jarmyn, Oxlade, Coad, Bentham, Holloway, Lindner, Pittaway, and too many others to name.
Devon, Dorset, Gloucs, Cornwall, Yorks, Bucks, Oxfordshire, Wilts, Germany, Sweden, and of course London, to name a few.

hi.

i asked a doctor who told me that it would damage renal organs due to excessive levels of uric acid and eventually kill you that way.
