‘Don’t increase the confusion’

In Sam Bari’s Feb. 24 column “A visit from Mr. No It All,” he has fallen into the same trap that has fooled many others in their pursuit of “truth.”

“Smoking, drinking alcohol and most other mindaltering substances” alter the way brain cells interact with each other.

The statement that such substances “kill brain cells” is paranoid dark ages dogma along the lines of “cards and dice are instruments of the devil.” Don’t increase the confusion in a system that is already hard to understand.
