No, clearly, I'm not saying that. Read carefully: Nobody heard of exercise induced rhabdo before CF publicized it. Cancer is a real concern, rhabdo is an overblown gimmick, now used to criticize CF. Get a crush or burn injury, get rhabdo and die, get exercise induced rhabdo rehydrate and rest for a couple of days and get back to work. That's what the evidence says. And you'd probably get it from a marathon or boot camp and wouldn't know what it is. CF advertised the risk of rhabdo, and is now some knid of leading cause of it. Bull****, run along now, you can now apparently hang out a performance menu and *** if you want to complain about the evils of CF, I hear there's plenty of room there.
