    Forget the gluten-free diet, this is it!
    Interesting article in today's WSJ (B1-Marketplace) re:California based CVAC Systems $75,000 "pod" that simulates high altitude and compresses muscles at "rhythmic intervals".
    The company claims athletic performance can be boosted by improving circulation, boosting oxygen-rich red-blood cells, removing lactic acid and possibly even stimulating mitochondrial biogenesis and stem-cell production.
    In 2006 WADA ruled that such "oxygen tents" enhance performance and violate the "spirit of sport", but did not add them to the list of banned methods, pending further studies.
    Truth my friend is stranger than fiction......

    You know, this is exactly 4th thread about it.

    Can't believe Novak's egg brings so much attention.

    At this rate, we're going to have to re-name the forum Pod Talk.
