You know that this had to come somewhere, so here it is:

(1) Nothing in this book constitutes advice. The author is not licenced to advise in matters related to health, nutrition, and exercise, and he does not propose to do so.

(2) The author has carefully researched the information provided in this publica-tion. Despite of this, this information could be false, and it the author can not be held responsible should such incorrect information cause damage, be it directly or indirectly.

(3) The reader is advised to independently check all the information provided, especially if he or she relies on it in circumstances where damage could occur.

In brief: whatever you do (or don’t do), get all the information and advice you need, use your head, make your judgment, go for it, and take responsibility for what you are doing.
