And while we're at it, everybody around here firmly believes that EB
is carcinogenic. Now I know that EB is used in huge doses in vet
medicine (against trypanosomiasis) and the chemical companies sell
it freely without warning labels. So does anyone have any firm evidence
that this is not just another urban legend?
