Well, it's definitely worthy of more studies, and yes, you do have to weigh the other health risks when taking these two pills, but it's great to know they're working on prevention as well as finding a cure.

Hurry....we're impatient to find THE CURE!!

Well then, maybe all the IBP that I take for shoulder pain isn't quite so bad. Nice to know that something might be helpful. Some day they will find the cure.
