    Re: Justice System Shield Medical Device Mnfg'ers

    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.
