I wish Chowhounds would neither ask for nor give medical advice

I did a search on this and found a snippet of a site talk thread where it was pretty clear that Chowhound really doesn't allow this. But I didn't find any written policy but perhaps didn't look hard enough. Regardless, fellow 'hounds, please don't ask for or give any type of medical advice. We are into food and know a little or a lot about different kinds of it. But we are not health care professionals and even the 'hounds who are aren't here for that reason. It's very dangerous to ask that kind of question. So whether it has to do with allergies or Lipitor or food poisoning, please don't ask. And if you see something like this, I would report it and hope that the moderators will delete it and send a note to the OP as to why. My little Easter lecture is over :)
