I have to say that I am DISGUSTED by the personal attacks and venom that have been thrown around in this discussion thread.
FreeAgain posted HIS experience, and HIS hypothesis. It doesn't appear that he's selling anything, he was just adding another topic to the discussion. It's up to each of us to take claims with a grain of salt and research them ourselves. We should be engaging in mature discourse, not name-calling and accusations.
There was no reason for this discussion to get as out of hand as it has gotten. Each person must choose the path they take for themselves; it's up to each of us to decide what we believe in and what we want to do to our bodies. Debate, different opinions, anecdotal information, questions... these are all helpful.
Snide comments, personal attacks, and unrelentless nitpicking over choice of words is NOT HELPFUL.
