    Don't know about foughtfyr, but I'll give it a shot. First of all, it's redundant no matter how crappy the study is (as they admit this at the end when they basically say "real research needs to be done to see what really happens". It's redundant because if someone has chest pain and it's ruled out that it is cardiac related, it is very likely to be musculoskeletal (yes, I know, aortic aneurysm, PE, blah blah blah is in the differential). The point is, if it's musculoskeletal, you could sprinkle ground up cupcakes on their genitals as a treatment and see a higher score on a pain scale in four weeks because they all get better in that time frame!!!

    The FDA will never allow such a treatment. They determined that the risk of addiction far outweighs any benefit.

    True, but I'd be happy to be a research subject if they need. I don't even care if they want me to be the sprinklee or sprinkler. Always there to help...
