WHAT CAUSES GOUT?
THE ANSWER MAY BE DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOUR DOCTOR TOLD YOU
The study, done by the Biochemistry Department of Otago University, for the New Zealand Rheumatology Association, showed that even if you have the "Gout-Protective" gene; Caucasians (white folk) who drank four SWEETENED BEVERAGES a day have a seven times greater (repeat; 7 times greater) chance of developing Gout than those who drank no sweetened beverages (yes; I do realize that this was a one sentence paragraph).
I personally know an individual who was put on Allopurinol to control severe recurrent Gout. After being left on the drug for the better part of a decade, he came down with partial kidney failure directly tied to the drug. Interestingly enough, this person was at one time, drinking 6-12 sodas a day ---- something that more of you than would care to admit, are likewise doing. If you are struggling with Gout, you'll definitely need to FIX YOUR DIET. But in the mean time, there are several studies that indicate COLD LASER THERAPY can be of help.
