Eric, please try to consider the doseage regime before you leap to
conclusions. For a human of 70 kg body weight (154 lbs.), even the
lowest treatment dose amounts to 7000 mg/day. IV administration also
introduces an unknown variable, as oral dosing may affect the
pharmacokinetic parameters. This study only shows that injecting the
equivalent of perhaps 28000 mg/day of SAMe may have deleterious
effects. That's not hard to imagine, is it?
