Thanks for posting this in it's own thread. Everyone should listen to it.
Here are some of the comments I posted in another thread after listening to the Nelson Before Nine interview.
Am just now listening to the Nelson Before Nine podcast, and can hardly wait to hear the wonderful Dr. Traboulsee speak. He has done a fabulous job of ensuring that MS patients are denied the option of consultation and treatment by vascular specialists in British Columbia.
Oh, I just heard it. He talks about how arteries are important and veins not so much in terms of causing health problems.
He says that the work (studies on CCSVI) has "only come out of one place". Does he mean California, Buffalo, or Italy, or Poland, or Jordan, or Kuwait, or Australia, or what??
Traboulsee claims that Dr. Zamboni has said that an independent group such as his (Traboulsee's) will need to reproduce his results to determine if they are valid. I must have missed Dr. Zamboni's specific comment on this.
Traboulsee says they (Traboulsee's group) are working with ethicists. I wonder if he has consulted ethicists regarding his policy of denying persons with MS any access to vascular specialists even if they have evidence of vascular problems. I assume he has not, and can only hope he does so soon for the sake of those of us whom he claims to be helping.
The persons with MS who were interviewed stated very clearly that they do not want neurologists to have a say in their vascular medical care. One of them commented that he does not feel his dentist should have a say on the issue either. They also both commented on the dismissive and disrespectful attitude of the MS Society toward those of us with MS at risk of CCSVI and seeking vascular screening. Listen carefully to what the persons with MS say when asked if they feel the MS Society is getting in the way of persons with MS getting help.
Traboulsee encourages us all to take with a grain of salt what we hear on the internet. Excellent advice, especially for those who have been getting their information regarding CCSVI from the website of the MS Society.
Wonderful interview!! The person doing the interview did a great job! I recommend listening to it.
Loved the CCSVI political protest song by the Canadian woman songwriter.
