To all concerned:

I understand that CD abuse and related music medium abuse can be passed on
genetically. If your father or mother was an abuser, (CDs, records or
tapes) there is a 95% chance that you also will be an abuser. If you know of a
history of music medium abuse in your family or feel like you are in a state of
uncertainty, seek professional help now so you can prevent its further damage
to you or your musical family unit.

Humble Regards,
Neil I.
