The following suggestions will help you avoid common pitfalls in the risks
and benefits section.
Avoid underestimating risks: a rule of thumb to follow is "if the
experiment exposes the subject to risks greater than what might be
expected during the course of a normal day, state it."
Do not state that risks are "unknown" because this is
interpreted as "none." State that "the risks are not known
at this time" or use another qualifier.
Avoid overestimated benefits and lofty statements, such as "the
betterment of humanity, advancement of science or knowledge."
