Thanks for the informative post, Jim.  Over the years I've seen many food and
drug scares that seemed to do little but sell books.  I remember back in the

chemicals in our environment have been accused of causing much of humanity's

plague, cholera, childhood diseases, childbirth, pneumonia, sword wounds,
infections, torture, guillotine, etc.

Drugs and chemicals need testing and regulation, but even so it's a dicey deal.
