yeah...that's the timeline and notes I wrote up last year for Facebook, which got copied and put on the MSRC site and is now linked to some guy's column. Not credited. again. Kind of surreal to see stuff I wrote down for MSers all over the intertubes, linked on really strange pages.
I've never said I believe doctors allow patients to become sicker on purpose....I don't believe that at all. Doctors are not evil plotters...like in some comic book. The world is not black/white. There's lots of gray. I just think the venous connection has been written off, because neuros thought they were done with it in the 1930s. The Putnam/Rivers debate put an end to vascular studies when EAE was discovered to be an acceptable and easier mouse model to study MS.
Neuros don't read vascular journals. A bunch of us on here did. Dom and dignan and Marie and me....we had the time to look into Zamboni's research and the re-emergence of the venous congestion theory.
yikes....(pinch me. wake up. wake up...)
