After reading the reviews on each of these, I get the general impression these are anti-use reviews.

So Lyon, What would your review of Mangostein Juice say? I was given a case of it by a well-wisher and I'm not sure what do with it.

PS: Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I'm grateful for the support and friendship from all of you.

Bob,

I think I let the "Montel Williams Sclerosis" issue ruffle my feathers too much and I might have been a little harsh with my retort about these possible therapies. Some of them probably do have little value while others might not be taken seriously enough by researchers to motivate them to find venture capitalists to fund full fledged studies. Maybe if I win the lottery I'll be able to throw enough money at this to get somebody to find the cure. (My daughter is sitting next to me and is reading as I write...Her response to the lottery is "Like that's ever gonna happen." LOL).

Marcia

Everyone...Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

In order to win the "Mega Millions" lottery in my state it is necessary to match 6 numbers that can exist in one of fifty possible states. The probability of succeeding at doing so can be calculated as 1 in 50^6 or 1 in 15,625,000,000. Every man woman and child on this planet would need to buy just over 2 lottery tickets each in order to guarantee a winner. As such, the lottery is really just a tax.

You can't win if you don't play and since I don't play (I'm too miserly with my little bit of money) the statistics won't matter anyway. BTW I have a degree in statistics and that's probably another reason I don't play. The odds are astronomical. It is a nice pipe dream though.
