Well said....a logical, reasonable perspective.Doodles wrote:While the MS Society offers help to MS sufferers and their famililes and does some advocacy work for MS sufferers, their research is supposed to be geared towards finding a cure and ending MS. To do that the Society must be open to ideas. I believe that MS has two components to it: autoimmune and vascular. The vascular component is not a new idea and it should be researched. Indeed, research into the vascular component should have been on-going for many years but it has, to all intents and purposes, been ignored. Myelin repair is another area of research that desperately needs attention. I applaud Dr. Embry for his advocacy and I appreciate his continued efforts to promote research into the vascular component of MS. I also think that the MS Society needs to take a breath and re-evaluate its objectives.
