I was just out of a neurology residency at the time that this began and there was a big cultural shift in US clinics in favor of treating pain hyper-aggressively with narcotics, pain as the "fifth vital sign," and similar stuff, not all of it bad. In retrospect, quite a bit of this appears to have been commercially driven, but bull**** wasn't science then or now.
My opinion is that medical science is weakest in dealing with things that can't be objectively observed. Pain relief and psych meds have been and continue to be problematic, for example. It's part of the reason we really don't understand addiction well, and really can't treat it effectively on any consistent basis.

Seems like every generation someone seems to come up a supposedly non-addictive opiate or opioid, and it becomes a major public health problem.

Maybe we should start an "I'm addicted to Finish Line wet lube" thread.

I don't get it, I just googled it and found tons of sources. Of course just like any other supplement, you really don't know what is in the bottle.

there is a 2-3h docu on youtube on that. i heard it. but it called some other crapola i cant remember.

very much knowledge in that imo. you have to dig.

there is nothing more deeply psychoactively challenging than going to amsterdam and smoking your brain out on some/any type of hazxe, going full out, then going to red lighjt district. its completely silent there and you think your head will explode aaany minute now, and still you are there, and you have to deal with it. and its not like you can get away. this is much much more scary than any hallucinigen ever tried by man. ask me how i know. i know.

and if you are prone to psuchotic breaks you will have it there and then. you are hereby warned. its a good learning lesson though. being there.

Our scientific understanding of addiction is actually very advanced, but that hasn’t helped much with treatment.

You are not going to get sued for repeating what the LBS told. You arenít saying that the lube is toxic. You are merely asking if anyone else has heard about Lube X being toxic.

Besides, you probably donít have the assets to make it worth their while to sue you.

So relax.

That's a lot to unpack, and it's so far ot, I won't go farther--I don't think scientific understanding of addictions like alcoholism can be considered "advanced" in any sense of the word.

Or not--have you seen what has been found when the contents of supplement bottles are actually tested? The most infamous was Target selling ginseng capsules that contained no ginseng.

Why did you claim that milk thistle was now classified as a drug and no longer available? That was weird.

Primary hazards common to all of these are skin and eye irritation. Petroleum products also are classified as severe aspiration hazards because death may occur through lung damage if you drink the material. What happens is that you when you vomit the material back up it can enter your trachea into your lungs. Oh, yeah - if you huff it, you can get dizzy and pass out.

All of these materials have some environmental toxicity as you would expect of petroleum products. There is evidence that short chain chlorinated paraffins, though not significantly toxic to fish, may bio-accumulate.

Below is a list of the components, with specific comments.

50-70% Distillates (petroleum), hydrotreated light (c9-c16)
This is analgous to kerosine.

10-20% Distillates (petroleum), hydrotreated heavy naphthenic (C20-C50).
Can be classified as a suspected human carcinogen if it contains > 3% polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The chain lube manufacturer did not use the carcinogen classification in the product literature so there is some probability that the PAH concentration is below the limit.

There have been some studies showing toxic effects on adrenals, bone marrow, liver, lymph nodes, kidney, stomach, thymus through prolonged or repeated skin exposure; however I found mention of a study of rabbit skin exposure toxicity LD>5000mg/kg, which is not significantly toxic.

10-15% Short chain chlorinated paraffins (C6-C18)

From an assessment by the Australian National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS): SCCPs exhibit very low acute toxicity by all three routes in animals. Mild skin and eye irritation were observed in some animal studies. Available human data indicate that SCCPs do not cause skin irritation and are not sensitisers.

1-5% Solvent naphtha (petroleum), light aromatic (C8-C10).

Can be classified as a suspected human carcinogen if it contains > 0.1% benzene. The chain lube manufacturer did not use the carcinogen classification in the product literature so there is some probability that the benzine concentration is below the limit.

My bottom line opinion is that this chain lube, which will be used sparingly and infrequently (i.e. once every few weeks) does not present a significant hazard to the user or to the environment. I'd recommend that you wash if you get any on your skin and certainly don't drink it. Also, do not throw unused portions in the trash.

I have know idea why the LBS dropped the product. Their stated justification does not match reality.
So you won't name the product either. WTF is wrong with people.

But just go on ahead and chug on your willow bark tea. I'll rather take an aspirin.
The quotation marks around the word science were to show a satirical use of the word due to the drug companies proclaiming to have legitimate research to back up their sales goals. The US version of the BBC news has carried some of the stories about the lawsuits against these companies to recover some of the costs associated with treating opioid addicts, hasn't this been mentioned there?

Alternative medicine has produced nothing but unverifiable stories and claims. It's primary success seems to be in alleviating the swelling of suckers' wallets.

You're putting your faith in an industry that regularly makes all sorts of claims on the labels of the products they sell, then has to put a disclaimer that says, in essence, we don't really mean it.
And btw, your Vioxx example is quite stupid. You do understand that it was scientific research that showed the hidden danger of the drug. Show me anywhere where alternative medicine has actually corrected earlier modality errors, I dare you.

I also double dog dare you to explain where these supposed toxins are stored, what exactly those toxins are, and the actual chemical mechanism by which these magic detoxifiers actually remove the toxins. And no, describing things by using analogies like "it's like detergent" will definitely not count.

You want this argument? Fine, you got it.
Easy peasy, but it's going to have to wait until I get back to a real keyboard.

Ah, I must have misread. I thought you meant science and not rampant corruption in the US medical system.
FYI, if you really wanted to discuss ethical and correct, scientific use of drugs you should perhaps discuss it from the context of a nation with a single payer model and high enough doctor wages to inhibit corruption, as well as a functioning society with low levels of corruption. Scandinavia is a good place for that.

I'll start off with the fact that doctors here don't think opiates are safe for over the counter use or prescribing with rampant abandon. Any doctor can prescribe opiates but, they do not think they should be used without great need due to serious side effects and addiction potential.
On the other hand with the dangers and side effects you get some of the most effective pain medication on the planet, which is crucial for people who are high amounts of pain, terminal cancer patients being one.

But even if science does fail at times due to aforeimplied corruption, it does correct itself and solves a lot of problems. Alternative medicine has nothing like that. It's alternative, because if it worked, it would not be called alternative anymore. Also if there was proof of it working it'd then be science.

Gotta keep the machinery rolling man...

I'm gonna take an mdma/coke/speed sleeping pill soon. its from the doctor.
The rampant corruption in the US medical industry isnít a science issue is it?

However both MDMA and Speed are amphetamines, which are a class of substances which have been found to be useful for the treatment of ADHD. Wanna know a big symptom of ADHD? You guessed it, insomnia. Itís probably one of the worst symptoms, because sleep deprivation magnifies the other ones.

So ironically, even if you likely didnít mean it, amphetamine ADHD drugs do work for a certain portion of the population, if not quite as sleeping pills, as sleep enhancers at least.

Cocaine on the other hand uses similar stimulation pathways so it could be considered a viable ADHD drug, IF it wasnít also incredibly toxic. So thatís likely to be off limits for a long, long time if no one invents a non-toxic variant. There are likely to be other issues with it, but havenít really looked into it that much. The general toxicity makes it undesirable for medical and thus for further study / consideration at least for me.

When I was diagnosed with ADHD at 30 years-old, I was prescribed methyphenidate, which falls between cocaine and amphetamines in both its stimulant pathway use and effectiveness. Itís pretty potent stuff, or so I imagine. At first it made me sleepy, so much so that I would pass out in the bus.

After the effects subsided somewhat, I was able to go the bed at 10pm and fall asleep when I decided I wanted to fall asleep. Before that I wouldnít feel sleepy before 12pm and often even if I went to bed dead tired it could take me hours to fall asleep. I was also able to pass the bar-exam in a reasonable amount of time. I could finally study 4-8 hours a day in one to two-hour periods like a normal person instead of the absolute maximum of 15 minutes at a time I was struggling with in law school.



Oh and the big one was that I was able to get away from impending alcoholism. Many ADHD-sufferers who arenít using meds are substance abusers because itís the only thing that unwinds the mass of rubber bands inside their chest. Before I was diagnosed the only time I could really feel relaxed was when I was heavily intoxicated from alcohol. Or thatís what I thought it was. In reality being blackout drunk was in a way when I felt normal, like a healthy person would feel. Of course I wasnít feeling normal because I was drunk, but you get the idea. I was counting days until the next time I could get wasted and my wife was frankly getting worried.



Nowadays the beers in our cellar are going bad because no oneís drinking them. I havenít stopped using alcohol but I also feel absolutely no need for it anymore.

All of that because of 54mg of slow releasing methylphenidate every morning. Because itís slow releasing I donít at any point get the Ďbonusí effects people misuse stimulants for. Not once have I felt euphoria or other positive vibes from it. But it does make me feel normal, which was a little overwhelming in the beginning.

Drinking chain lube is the real problem. It's so tacky it won't wash down my throat unless I chase it with gasoline.

I didn't see any reviews of the product, but supposedly you can wash it off and re apply it again, makes me think it wouldn't be too effective in the rain.
Now I know why that sheep on Orsons farm, from Garfield & Friends was named Lanolin.

I don't want to name the product unless I get some corroborating evidence. Companies are known to go after people who diss them online. Also it would be unfair to the company if it is not true.

I think I am leaning to the side of there being nothing to it. So I won't say anything more.

If anybody has anything to add about more eco friendly and healthy chain lubes I would be happy to hear it.
I could tell you... but the company might sue me for the fact it isn't chain lube and the use thereof is improper. You know how companies go after people who use their offered goods against how they intended it.

No, I don't know how companies go after people who use their products for unintended purposes. I've used many, many products for purposes they were not intended for, ranging from tools to explosives without being "gone after". If anything, YOU might not have a case to go after THEM, if you got injured/damaged using a product for an unintended purpose. You can find youtube full of videos of people using products for unintended purposes.

I'd think about it if the $hit wasn't so expensive. I can get a good single malt or bourbon for a lot less per serving. I would, in fact, recommend those as a substitute for the gasoline chaser.
