In the short time since browsing through the extropian threads I have
been pleasantly surprised to see the evolution of the human condition is
likely to be freed of the
regulators short sighted heavy hand by at least a few of us.

About 25 years ago I added DMAE to my life-extension program. At the
time much less
was known and it appeared to be just another powder puff item. I
checked into Max
More's reference to centrophenoxine with the Entrez browser at NLM/NIH
and my good
old faithful Merck manual. I was astonished at the similarity between
the combination
of DMAE plus the common herbicide 2,4-D and centrophenoxine. The only
difference is the
2, chloro of the 2,4-D. Would people exposed to minimal amounts of
2,4-d while also
consuming DMAE have similar effects to those of centrophenoxine?
