That was very comprehensive (albeit scary). I'm not sure where that leaves me. Some conflicting points of view there.
Which brings up a good point. Sorry to get off topic a bit here and sorry to jump back on the soap box, but I just can't help it. It seems to me that in this thread (as with most threads), there have been differing points of view and conflicting information. So why then, did it not get moved to the debate forum? :P Sorry couldn't help myself!
Anywho, I don't actually have an infection (that I am aware of at present), but I do have a root canal and that makes me nervous about the future.
