"my point was C-peptide is an unknown, possibly a big one. You cannot factually deny that. so, leave it at that."

"Since I am not making a claim for C-peptide, it is your responsiblity (sic) to prove it is valuable. It may be useful in certain conditions, but it has been badly oversold as a big pharma issue, which is a complete lie."

Sorry, i guess there is a problem involving oversimplification in someone's mind. i did not/am not claiming anything, and so don't have anything to prove. i simply said it's an open question, that is a fact. in terms of "badly oversold as a big pharma issue, which is a complete lie." you now do have something to prove - you say " It may be useful in certain conditions" but now you must show/prove that it is "a big lie". my position was much more conservative, stating what remains an open question - that c-peptide may or may not be important. You even suggest "it may be important in certain conditions", which i don't think is yet proven beyond reasonable doubt, but you then say it is "badly oversold as a big pharma issue". i don't know what that means - if it may be important, then it may be important. in terms of big pharma, i am not knowledgeable of all the many things that they are doing, the places my original post referred to were small start-ups that i read about. but, it wouldn't surprise me if pfe were nosing about in just about anything.

anyway, please refrain from lashing out with absolute statements, it really gives the appearance of ignorance which i know is not correct.
