Please do. Anytime someone talks about cures for seemingly intractable diseases, using 'nutritional supplements', despite the positive results of natural anti-oxidants, etc., my bogosity meter gets extra twitchy. While the potential benefits of useful products are huge, as in the case of drugs like tamoxifen, etc from natural sources, I'm sure I can speak for most everyone here in saying it is extremely important that any health-cap startup using the term extropian in its name not be a fly by night operation long on hype and short on science. If I so much as hear the word multi-level.....

I think you understand where I am coming from. Despite what I know about both naturally originating substances, as well as proactive marketing plans, the negative connotations in the eyes of the public due to the indiscretions of others carry an extra risk factor. Please be as forthcoming as possible.... I personally love the fact that you are trying to naturally recusitate a moribumd local economy.
