I really wish more people actually took the time to understand this point tommy. It's really quite simple I believe, yet this way of thinking is often challenged.It always amazes me how we react to different everyday activities and our actual risks associated with such activities.
For example, DNP overdose resulting in death is extremely rare, and requires a person to exercise extremely poor judgment. Because of this "high risk" drug, we have an Interpol warning. My 16 year old child will get into a 5,000lb hulk of metal and motor down the road at 60mph after school today, all the while passing others in similar large, moving objects. At that time, just a slight lack of judgment (much less than a DNP overdose) can result in not only their death, but the death of others. In fact, tens of thousands of Americans die every year on our roads, and yet we don't outlaw what is clearly a much more dangerous activity that has a substantially smaller margin of error.
Just odd how we think about such things.....
