  • I wonder how many millions of people have had their quality of life ruined, their lives shortened, had heart attacks, strokes, developed diabetes, lost limbs, all because of this?

  • And this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

    I'd like to know if anyone is going to be prosecuted. For a start Harvard should have any special tax benefits or other privileges taken away and made to contribute to a health fund.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there a class action suit is attempted by the very people you mean.

  • Was it worth it? :-)

  • God yeah :D

  • Ah well, good on you. :-D
