    Hi Tania,

    I don't think these drinks are dangerous just to those of us who have MVP--but to most of us because we have autonomic dysfunction. Several of the ingredients can affect the autonomic nervous system. Also, from the statistics published in the States, they have underestimated the % of the general population who have at least mild MVP. I have two prolapsed valves and a cardiologist said that about 20% of the population have mild MVP. And for our group, the percentage is likely to be much higher.

    Best,
    Sushi

    Agree that these probably arent good for those of us who dont even have MVPs. (I myself have indication of having a MVP).

    Dr Cheney has given a percentage for MVPs in us.. I cant quite remember now but it was extremely high.. something like 80%? of his ME patients had a MVP. Due to statistic like that, I dont think any of us should drink these drinks.

    I had one can of V when I was studying late at Uni in my late 20s. It gave me heart palpitations and made me feel dizzy. I have never touched the stuff again. Too much instant coffee can have the same effect on me.
