Could effect people differently though, right?

If you read the abstract it says the study indicated a causal link - which is a different conclusion than the article made - and this link is in a peer reviewed journal.

I just have to say: I think it is really weird that if you post something as a "possible" concern, that people will come out of the woodwork to dispute it.

The purpose of posting was to share my experience (I had been using it for years, and then found a possible lung cancer association - I found the risk too great for me to continue using it). I would imagine that every other person reading this thread can do their own research and come to their own conclusions about what is right for them.

I don't understand how arguing with someone who cites concerns is adding any value to the discussion.

The last link I shared is from a peer reviewed medical journal citing a study where causation is statistically indicated.

Well it says pain in one or both arms. i had that.


Either way, maybe i'lll just take a break from it for a month, and then re-introduce. if the symptoms come back then I'm just not going to use it. not worth it.


Thanks!
