ezs note:  If this paragraph were written by a janitor or a substitute teacher,  yeah, maybe I'd give him/her a pass. But a principal???  I'm not going to tell you what to do, but I'd think long and hard if I were offered this position.

ezs note:  A few tips are in order here:  Read the entire article, including hotlinks.  Don't just give it a quick skim.  Next, see an American Medical Association (AMA) accredited physician to discuss the benefits and risks you are taking.  It's your decision - make it an informed one.
