"Dr." Patrick Flanagan is one of the world's foremost con artists. I was
recently was sent a business proposal from one of the companies marketing his microhydrin anti-oxidant product, so I did a little background checking. All of his inventions are completely ridiculous, no data at all. Flanagan was also responsible for "Pyramid Power" back in the early 70's. Microhydrin is a particularly disgusting fraud, it most likely causes oxidative damage, if it does anything at all. Flanagan's M.D. and Ph.D. are almost assuredly self awarded, because the only paper trail that exists on him is the Life magazine puff piece, and his collection of lies and half truths such as the paragraph Gina posted. Beware disinformation couched in pseudoscientific technobabble!
