“If you have the knowledge, it is your responsibility to convey that knowledge and explain the riskiness of your chosen occupation to all who choose to continue your endeavor. Only by conveying to each of the participants the full degree of potential risk and dangers, and making sure that each of them fully understands and accepts the degree of their responsibility and the riskiness of such activities, you have the right to engage in the chosen business, despite the danger to you personally.”

Dr. Gilbert Milner
