  • https://www.barthsyndrome.org/about-barth-syndrome Barth Syndrome Foundation - Overview of Barth Syndrome - Barth syndrome (BTHS; OMIM #302060) is a rare, serious genetic disorder primarily affecting males around the world. It is caused by a mutation in the tafazzin gene (TAZ, also called G4.5), resulting in an inborn error of lipid metabolism. Though not always present, cardinal characteristics of this multi-system disorder often include combinations and varying degrees of cardiomyopathy (dilated with variable myocardial hypertrophy, sometimes with left ventricular noncompaction and/or endocardial fibroelastosis); neutropenia (chronic, cyclic, or intermittent); underdeveloped skeletal musculature and muscle weakness; growth delay (abnormal growth pattern, similar to but often more severe than constitutional growth delay); exercise intolerance; cardiolipin abnormalities; and 3-methylglutaconic aciduria (typically 5 to 20-fold increased).

  • Angie Camps - FALSE HOPES... DOES NOT WORK FOR STINKY POOP AS IT PROMISES

    A waste of money for the most part. Let's just say it only works on milder poop... Which upset me because this product claims to work even on the harshest dumps... And my dad can sure lay them. It didn't work for him... All I could smell was this product, and his horrifying poop. A horrible mixture as you may realize. So much for trapping craps. I want my money back.

  • B-Mon30 - Soft and NOT brassy!

    I have dark blonde to light brown hair that I get blonde highlights in about once every 6-8 weeks. I do have well water, but it's softened and not very "hard" at all. Every so often, I notice that my blonde starts to look a little brassy ("orangey"), and it really takes away from the beautiful job my colorist does. She had recommended Paul Mitchel violet shampoo, but was always out of stock. I happened to be at the drug store and saw this on sale, so I picked up both the shampoo & conditioner.

  • Brenda S. - Don't Remove the Paper Seal!

    I have used the Damp Rid Products for years and years and they work great! But this new incarnation of the tub has a paper (moisture permeable) seal on the tub which you should not remove (Ooops!). Yeah it's not very clear to us old timers- so I thought I would give everyone a heads up, now you won't be taping the seal back on like me :-).
