my edit got deleted on wp so I thought I should bring it here.

I added the risk of MI with cocaine. I don't know why it got deleted on wp. However, we should heavily recruit on wikipedia. People get frustrated - especially the occasional editor who contributes a really good piece of info every so often - only to later have it deleted. Tom Kelly 02:59, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
