If errors are brought to my attention, I will try to correct them. However, neither I nor any other named individual accepts any responsibility or liability whatsoever with regard to the material on this site. This material is:

  • Not necessarily comprehensive, accurate or up to date.
  • Sometimes linked to external sites over which neither I nor any other named individual has control nor assumes responsibility. I do not endorse opinions expressed or services provided at those sites.

None of the material on this site is intended for use for any medical, experimental or similar purpose. No responsibility whatsoever is accepted for any loss, damage or injury resulting from any use to which information or ideas from this site may be put. Although I wish I could be of assistance, the risk of medical malpractice prevents me from answering specific medical questions. There are a great deal of medically-related resources on the internet, and I suggest that you examine them for information that might be of interest to you and relevant to your questions. You should contact your physician for specific medical information.
