The people who are taking it are not taking it because they suffer from 
parasites. (Nor is the horse dosage or purity appropriate for human 
consumption).

And that was my point: all it takes is for some unscrupulous person to 
start an internet rumor of how that medicine brings some benefit to your 
unborn baby, and there will be idiots feeding it to pregnant women. And 
when the terrible things happen they will say "nobody warned us". So 
warnings have to be made about things that are unlikely, yet very harmful.
