I was under the impression that this was the whole article as printed in the Lancet, although it is very possible that only part of the article was printed.
You say you may be waivering between putting more credence into Liver Flushing or not and because of this your comments and questions are related to my question, but they don't answer my question.
For people who want lots of technological tests and measurements (ie.how long does olive oil stay in the liver) you don't seem to have much opinion on where you see the control in the Lancet article.
Almost everyone who posts here with a conventional view of how surgery is superior to Liver Flushing brings up the gold standard and how Liver Flushing falls short because of it. So now I'm asking you about how the Lancet article meets the gold standard.
Surely you know your own basis for holding the Lancet article in high esteem.
To begin to find out upon what you base your high esteem, I'd like to know where you see the control in that article?
