Congratulations on a well balanced entry. This whole issue is a lesson, if one were needed, on the inability of the tabloid press to report medical issues with anything less than a hysterical tone, the difficulty otherwise educated people have in making sensible risk/benefit decisions and the mistrust the scientific establishment seems to be held in with essentially one man's research being given the same weight in the press as the opinion of the rest of the scientific community in this area (I know that the majority isn't necessarily correct in these issues but it surely carries some weight in making a judgement).
