|Notes:||"The definitive compendium of things you absolutely, positively must not eat, drink, wear, take, grow, make, buy, use, do, permit, believe, or let yourself be exposed to, including an awful lot of toxic, lethal, horrible stuff that you thought was safe, good, or healthy, all sorts of really bad people who are out to get, cheat, steal from, or otherwise take advantage of you, and a whole host of existential threats and looming dooms that make global warming, giant meteors, and planetary pandemics look like a walk in the park (with its high risk of skin cancer, broken bones, bee stings, allergic seizures, animal attacks, criminal assaults, and lightning strikes)."
"In association with the Cassandra Institue and the Institute of Expertology."
