Risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, general industry conditions and competition; general economic factors, including interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; the impact of pharmaceutical industry regulation and healthcare legislation in the United States and internationally; global trends toward healthcare cost containment; technological advances, new products and patents attained by competitors; challenges inherent in new product development, including obtaining regulatory approval; the company’s ability to accurately predict future market conditions; manufacturing difficulties or delays; financial instability of international economies and sovereign risk; dependence on the effectiveness of the company’s patents and other protections for innovative products; and the exposure to litigation, including patent litigation, and/or regulatory actions.
Bill, PLEASE stop the ridiculous generalizations. You are only demonstrating how much you don’t know, and wasting people’s time. “No one’s eating ‘whole’ wheat”. Absolute demonstrable nonsense. Many people ARE eating whole wheat products. Many people make their own bread, even grind their own wheat, even make it with older forms of wheat, and other whole grains. I used to make my own bread with organic whole-grain flour. “Their (sic) not God”. Nor are you. There is no way you can possibly know what “everyone” or “no one” is doing. There are actually numerous studies that show that eating whole grains in moderation is beneficial. Whole grains (excepting modern standard hybrid wheat) are REAL Paleo, as science shows that humans have eaten grains, and, yes, ground it to flour, for more than 30,000 years. But Paleo man used grains like any other plant food resource – as a small, seasonal part of a varied diet. BTW, I will say it again. Anyone that wants a citation on a specific scientific claim I have made, please let me know. I will be happy to post one or more. But, with literally thousands of original source references I have looked at over the years, and continue to read, I cannot post them all. Nor am I intending to do an anthropology or physiology tutorial here. This is Chris Kresser’s blog, and not “Burke’s Introduction to Evolutionary Biology 101”. Commenters can check out the numerous references Chris provides, or they can Google specific topics in which they are interested. If their interest is genuine.
