    For additional thoughts on the need to take a step back and re-think the sound and fury on whether or not DCA is an anti-cancer wonder drug that is being ignored by big-pharma, people might take a look at this post over at ScienceBlogs:

    http://scienceblogs.com/...

    A warning though, the author (an oncologist) makes some dismissive comments about one or two bloggers who are generally held in high esteem here at DailyKos (i.e. Digby over at Hullabaloo).  As a scientist myself, I can understanding his frustration when lay people, who may not be real familiar with a topic make overbroad statements about said topic.

    •  Yeah, Digby's comments were unfortunate (1+ / 0-)

      She/he was really off the reservation.  She//he is usually so rational that it was quite depressing to read it.  But, I have faitht that Digby is intelligent and adaptable and will be a lttle less reflexive next time.  We chewed her/him out pretty good in the comments.
