When my super powers kick in, I, too, will be IMMUNE to
everything, including mold and all other toxins. I cannot
find my Wonder Woman bracelets or my Lariat of Truth; can't
fit into suit anymore.
On another note, I hope everyone will use common sense and
realize that there is no protection save what you provide
yourself. Do your homework and research on any medical
implants/devises and realize that the FDA approval is not like
the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
