Virginia,

If someone throws what looks like a rock toward a crowd of vulnerable people
and someone else yells "duck", one doesn't complain of intolerance for rock
throwers. If you hear someone giving seemingly dangerous advice, you have to
warn the potential victims.

I suggest that this topic be closed unless we have several relevantly qualified
doctors on this list and that the doctors are willing to take responsibility
for the advice they give us. All people worried about work-related ailments
should go to a doctor qualified to treat such ailments. If you instead choose
to use mail-order X-ray specs to cut screen glare and a sea-monkey ointment to
rub on your aching wrists, that's up to you, but please don't recommend it to
others.

Also, everyone should remember that there are places such as the FDA that
provide free, reliable information about medical treatments. Check the web for
that site. If you check any other web sites or other sources of information,
and especially if you walk down the aisles of stores selling purported
remedies, be wary. When sales are the goal, the truth is often stretched,
blurred, or ignored, your health be damned.
