In Reply to: Glucosamine posted by Pat on August 21, 2000 at 14:40:55:

: Read in the paper this morning an article about
: glucosamine. They said it is either derived from
: shellfish or cow cartilage. Lady who wrote letter
: to paper had said she heard that the cow cartilage
: may have pieces of the animal in it, and could a person
: possibly get a disease from it? Has anyone heard
: anything about this, and which type is safest to use?
: The article was in "The People's Pharmacy" by Joe
: Graedon. I'm thinking of starting to take a product
: for joints, but would like to know anything about this
: if possible, before I purchase one. Thanks for any
: information.

:I have been taking glucosamine and chondroitin for a long time. I believe it helps but I have never seen exactly what it is made of on any brand I have ever purchased. I have often wondered about that but I have never noticed any side effects.
