Reading the bad stuff is something I try to avoid for fear of acting it out. I've often thought that if food was labeled in the same way as meds then Jenny Craig and Weight-Watchers would go out of business. I'm sure that double blind trials over 1000's of people would show that Hershey bars kill a small percentage of those who ingest them, and warn of side effects for mothers who drink Coca-Cola. After 7 in the morning. While nursing.

Looking at your post in utter seriousness, though, may I ask you this:

What does your doctor say when you ask him/her what you asked us? Not just for your benefit -but for everyone else whose running the same gauntlet you are. I hope to see your reply soon.
