  Good point.  If you wish to teach hormesis, do so.  If you believe in the benefits of hormesis, good for you.  
  If you wish to advise patients on hormesis, you may want to get a medical degree first.  If you recommend that a person get radiation exposure, and then develops cancer, as 42% of us do, how well do you think you will do in a court of law?

John, speak for yourself. Don't presume to speak for me because you
don't. If I, as an HP, want to teach hormesis, I will. It is part of our
