    Far be it for me to call the following source a hallmark of credibility, but I found this to be interesting. If I'm concluding right (which is a stretch), maybe using pyro would actuall be good for me as someone who smokes. Seems the parent acid from which pyrogallol is extracted is a chemical unfriendly to cancer cells. DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR ANY CLAIMS.
    But then when we develop in a developing tank, pouring our chemistry from a beaker, there isn't a whole lot of hand contact any way.

    . I'm not sure, OP, if you were talking about one of these formulas or if you were talking about pyrocatechin.
    Sorry but I know enough to answer this.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    In all likelihood, it is a clinically irrelevant compound for cancers.

    if mixed in polyethylene glycol, which it should be,
    Hi Jim, why should it be mixed in polyethylene glycol? If the only reason is indefinite shelf life, that's great for the casual user, but I go through pyrocat stock rather quickly, so for me, there is no point to mixing in polyethylene glycol... unless I'm missing something. Up here in Canada, polyethylene is pretty expensive.
