What Dr. Hebert says about dilating veins...
- "We normally only dilate arteries. Dilating veins is highly experimental and the structures are so weak that people will die," he warns. "At some point it will happen because putting in vascular catheters is dangerous at the best of times."
...is false. Veins are often dilated to fix blockages in other conditions. I have also read doctors stating that jugular veins are routinely dilated for other conditions but they wouldn't do it for someone with MS. It is amazing that this deliberate misinformation which only serves to spread fear, uncertainty and doubt is published as fact. Moreover, journal editorials such as the one authored by Hebert, are not science but merely opinion, are then used to deny other researchers funding.
