      No. Sulfate is OK. The sulfur in it (and in DMSA) isn't
      interconvertible with the other kinds of sulfur in the body. MSM,
      DMSO, glutathione, cysteine, cystine, and the sulfur in "sulfur
      foods" are all interconvertible and all must be avoided if "sulfur"
      is a problem as indicated by elevated plasma cysteine or by dietary
      experiment. Any or all of these can be fed to people with low plasma
      cysteine, or who do well on a high sulfur diet, but sulfate and epsom
      salt baths won't help those who need more sulfur.
