Let's see...  absorbed through the skin, goes to the brain, makes you feel
great, and some don't care what's in it.  By golly, I'd sure jump to try it!
Why not just sniff glue?  Any DMSO-users had their liver tested lately?

I -am- somewhat sympathetic with this sentiment.  Anti-inflammatory
medication has significant side effect considerations - every thing from
aspirin to prednisone to all the Motrin-like medications.  That said
however, doesn't mean that stuff like DMSO is safer for you.

I am still in shock about that 1st paragraph - how can you "not care"?  WD40
as a medical treatment?  Next you'll be telling me you urinate on Poison Ivy
you got putting up your TOWER!  I had a guy telling me he washes out his
urinary catheter (pay attn contesters!) in the TOILET BOWL - couldn't be
convinced this wasn't a good idea or that it had anything to do with his
constant infections!  Some days I don't even try anymore - you just can't
tell people something they believe in is wrong.
