I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you. Really, this is my shocked face. You mean a tenuous connection with a lousy p value was wrong? Say it ain't so. :-)

Of course we need a lot more data, but I've always simply treated it like any other potentially-mildly-problematic chemical. Protect my skin and don't breathe the spray.
