CCSVI in Seattle, Part 3 of the Q&A with Dr. Hubbard, around the 6:50 mark.
Dr. Hubbard: "...and so I, myself, and my wife and my daughter, we enrolled ourselves as normal subjects. None of us were normal. We all had some kind of obstructions. So I think that is going to be a challenge, but it doesn't really change the fact that no one should want to have abnormal veins in their neck. If you've got abnormal veins in your neck, this procedure is not dangerous, it's safer than the disease modifying drugs, my feeling is if your veins in your neck are abnormal you should have the right to have it treated."
What the heck? The last thing I want to do is stir the skeptic pot around here, but these remarks can't go unscrutinized.
On one hand, he could just be saying nobody's veins are perfect. On the other hand, he might be saying everyone's veins are screwed up but MS patients should get theirs fixed just because.
Is his observation applicable to the population in general, or is it just a reflection on the Hubbard/Haacke methodology?
If it's just their methodology, might that explain why they're finding CCSVI in ALS and Parkinson's too, when Dr. Zamboni said they wouldn't?
Dr. Hubbard made these comments to much laughter and applause in the room. An odd reaction I thought. It seemed those present weren't really listening to what he was saying, they were just high on hearing "everyone deserves to be treated." I wasn't there, so I should give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe it's just because time was running short, but it's a shame there were no follow up questions to flesh that comment out a bit.
I could be overreacting but I really think this comment needs significant clarification by Dr. Hubbard.
