Not unexpectedly, the resulting images showed an astonishingly close correlation to the theoretically predicted molecular orbitals. This incredible set of images reminds me of the group that imaged a single carbon atom in 2009."

    This kind of stuff is a worry.

    Pentacene is an organic hydrocarbon which oxidizes very rapidly. If they start to use this Frankenstein molecule for experiments and it ever escaped from the lab, it could infect the planet with its oxidizing traits of disease.

    It's a proven fact that oxidizing chemicals in the body cause all sorts of ills: heart disease, cancers, subluxations, arterial blockages, etc. With a fast-acting oxidizer floating around in the air, people will breath in this garbage and start to basically rust to illness and death.

    Unfortunately we can't remove a subluxation for study, we can only treat them with applied Chiropractic manipulation. However if one were to remove a subluxation and study it, you'd find a mass of oxidized blockages due to bad diet and inactivity wrapped around the sufferer's nerve fibers.

    During my time in Chiropractic college, we saw countless examples of subluxation in cadavers. Most would have simply caused discomfort ("sore back", etc.) in the person, however some we saw were very likely the cause of the person's death. Huge knots of subluxated material wrapped around nerves, almost like cancers. Even in the cadavers we could 'break them' and make them go away. If only they had gotten to a chiro *before* they died, they could have likely been saved.

    The big message: AVOID ALL OXIDIZING MATERIALS! If you cannot and must work around it, be SURE to visit a reputable Chiropractor and explain that you work around oxidizers. The Doctor will be able to focus his treatments accordingly.

    Take care,

    Fact: Chiropractors are funded by the shadowy oxidizing lobby. When they give you an expensive massage, doing nothing to treat your ailments, they are secretly rubbing in oxidizing agents.
