Do you want people to read what you post? Why should they if you don't read what they post? To whit...in post #93, from http://emedicine.medscape.com/:
Old shoes are often sources of reinfection and should be disposed of or treated with antifungal powders.
Nowhere did I use the word "you" in that post nor reference anyone in particular. I think the Internet is full of misleading, self-serving and simply incorrect information. I don't trust anything coming from the Internet unless there is someone willing...and able...to answer for it. To vouch for it. That's all.
But to answer you....as far as the flaws in the studies cited, they were, IMO, just incomplete or moot. You may think that your citations and interpretation of the diabetes study was relevant but I didn't see it.
And when I asked you to quote specific excerpts to substantiate your interpretation of the studies you were summarizing ...to whit:
For shoes that are already contaminated, antifungal sprays, UV, and ozone treatments are effective.
...you declined to do so. Which leaves me wondering why there is no one to take responsibility for validity of either the source or the interpretation...or even the summary itself.
