    Considering what's come out in recent years, I certainly hope they do so.

    Doesn't clinical research pretty much amount to that "anecdotal evidence" we've been told about for so long?

    Yes... all those clinical trials thjat found that Dioxin kills you, mercury and lead should not be consumed, and arsenic isn't food are all absolutely meaningless anecdotal evidence...
