yes, there is always the danger that people take things out of context, and not understand that some of these recent research results, produce an additional tool, perhaps in managing these horses, but not in exclusion of known modalities, of which diet of course, is huge.
That does not mean the info should not be out there, for informed people to consider perhaps adding one more thing that might help a metabolic horse.
If you read the chapters in Pete ramey's book , by contributing vets that specialize in managing IR horses, there are quite a few substances that have shown efficacy, and some that are regional specific, as in managing winter laminitis, for those of us that live where winters are extreme
Information is not dangerous, but the mis use certainly can be
Talking from the human perspective, there are certain herbal remedies that show efficacy in cancer, and I myself used some in addition, but not in exclusion of accepted main stream therapy
