In the 1980's I worked with a group of guys and most of us took
vitamins because that was what people were supposed to do. The big,
popular supplement in the early 80's was Lecithin.
One of the guys I worked with did not take any supplement and I asked
him about this. He said that one of his jobs in college was to climb
into the huge soy-oil tanks after they had been emptied and guide the
hoses to vacum out what was left over. He told me that this dark
sludge was shipped and sold as 'Lecithin'.
They did not have great safety equipment at the time and he had to
wear a rope around his waist--if he fainted from the gas, the guys
outside the tank could pull him out and give him 'mouth-to-mouth' and
get him breathing again. This never happened to him but he stated
that it had happened to others.
He told us stories of other guys who were too lazy to climb out of
the tank to relieve themselves, you get the picture. All of us at
work stopped taking Lecithin for some reason :-)))
I can't say if what he told me was true. I can't use his name because
he is the Mayor of a medium sized city in the USA and may not always
tell the truth and I promised not to emberasse him any more. I and
others believed him however--and now it turns out that Lecithin is
pro-inflamatory and is not recommended because it can be
contradictory to what folks do for 'heart-health'.
Thought you might enjoy this Olivier :-)
