    Consumers want what they are told they need….

    Just look at the sunscreen marketing campaign from the 1980s.

    Community outreach is good.

    A marketing campaign similar to what the sunscreen industry utilized would be better.

    The mainstream audience is the target and somehow must be reached.

    Great article. And interesting that the majority of the 7-DHC was in the chicken legs. Perhaps a connection between chickens applying preening oil from the uropygial gland located near the base of their tails?
