Oh geez, comeon. You're taking things farrr too seriously. If people
choose to try it and get sick thats their problem. Each person takes
responsibility for his/her actions. Don't censor or withhold information
that may potentially if unlikely have some validity. No offense, but I
believe i speak for many many people on the net when i say I dont want
you or anyone else making up my mind for me. I dont need to be protected
from myself. I agree it looks pretty quack to me as well but this whole
thing reminds me of the time back in highschool where my science teacher
told me not to tell people in class how they could look at the partial

themselves. This may sound harsh but theres this thing called evolution
which has been going on for millions of years and I'm a big believer in
