Hi there - I've actually moved my ranting over to Dr. Kruse's forums on his website. Plenty of shennanigans over there, if you want to come check it out.
And while CT isn't really "required" per se, it will make a big difference to your health in the long run. There's a whole series of blogs about it that Dr. Kruse outlines the science in. It's some fairly heavy reading, but the info is all there.
Plus? Honestly? I have to admit that I get kind of a sick, twisted pleasure out of sinking down into a tub of cold water and making up creative ways to curse Dr. K....but I'm kind of a sick puppy like that, so your milage may vary.
