cheer, thanks so much for that video. As a Stanford grad with multiple degrees, I'm rather proud to see the type of doctor and a Stanford guy representing CCSVI. Even though it should go without mentioning, Stanford's medical school and medical center is a rather pre-eminent place, and they don't usually have "charlatans" on staff there. I don't see how anybody could watch that video and not at least think "well, maybe they are on to something, and I look forward to the science to see how it plays out", instead of needing to be a contrarian.
glad you liked the video, COG. Stanford's a special place. You were fortunate to go there! It was actually Dr. Cooke (another Stanford professor/endothelial researcher) that read the Zamboni research and gave it to Dr. Dake for me. Dr. Dake and Dr. Cooke have published hundreds of papers, and are respected scientists and researchers, certainly not extremists. And they would agree, the science is necessary. I hope more people listen to Dr. Dake for themselves. It takes 15 minutes. Much more illuminating than arguing about roses of any shape or smell....
