Thought this was a good post and and was worth re-posting.  I wish no 
ill feeling toard anyone but think that many of the public posts do not 
belong here.  I would also encourage everyone to learn the difference 
between public posts and e-mail and ask yourself before you post, does 
every M.D., Ph.D or researcher in the country need to read my post or 
does just the author need to read the post.  E-mail is good.  

Just for public information, this news group was published the the 
February issue of the popular health magizine "Longevity" which could 
account for many of our new readers.
