John, wherever you got those posts from, they were not from me. I have found a post from you here
which I do not recognize as anything I have ever written. Could you possibly have got this material from my co-author Steve Anchell? Wherever you got it from, I don't think much of it.
Regarding Pyrogallol and toxicity, I really think Gordon Hutchings is the expert on this; I trust his asseveration that the chemical is unusually dangerous -- certainly more so than HQ. To take an MSDS as a literal statement of established scientific truth is ridiculous. They are often contradictory or have a commercial agenda. Gordon is not a scientist but he has done a good three decades of careful research on this chemical. I don't think the observations in his book are fanciful. Just my opinion.
Thanks, Ron, for looking out for my back! Greetings and best wishes to everyone !
