[SIDE EFFECTS] I have been reading the posts on apple Cider Vinegar- About 14 years ago , to lose weight I started taking ACV a tablespoon in my food. I had never ever had any problems with my joints or limbs or any other health issues-i must have taken ACV for about a year , not much effect on losing weight but after a year or so I was expereincing pain in my knee joints and it started to get worse over the years- To cut a long story short, I had to get an MRI done and was told , I had to have atropscopy to correct the problem-To go back many years , my mother related what had happened to her school friend many years ago, -She said ths girl was obese and had started taking a wine glass full of malt vinegar to lose weight, maybe she over did it, but she started losing not just body fat but her bones were brittle and she had to be hospitalized and the docs told her mother that she had lost a lot of bone marrow, to say the least, other complication developed and this girl lost her life.
I dont know if the reason was ACV or what? I have just related to what happend to me- I have as yet not recovered from the bad knee and had another surgery this time with atroscopy with micro fracture, this was to start the stem cells to kick in- Well it did not help at all and maybe in a few years will have to go for a knee replacement- The other knee is also painful but has had no surgery
This post is to RELATE my experience, I may be wrong but then I thought of sharing it with all of you-Thanks
