Introducing BioImplement

Have you Limited your Liability Today?
The following disclaimer is posted for the benefit of my employer, Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) in Toronto, and my primay academic institution, The University of Toronto (UofT) and to any other interested parties who are worried about liability. These parties should also note the extensive BLOGGER.COM terms of service which I read in its entirety (including the bit about their use of CAPITAL LETTERS and them not being responsible for ocular damage from reading the entire agreement). Most people in the US will find this disclaimer unusual, so I've linked it to the underlying legislation in my jurisiction (Toronto Canada).
