i'm sorry for veering so off topic, and asking such a general question, from a 'quack' website. although most of people don't believe in detoxing, given the pharmaceutical imposition in our medical economic sector, and their final word in all diseases, i find it hard to believe that given the prevalence of cherry angiomas, no one has done any real study to the real cause behind them. If one thing is for sure, it's that our body has it's own way of alarming of us of problems to come. why aren't they studied? - "given that they only rarely indicate internal malignancy." yeah, i don't think so, common sense says otherwise.
