But .... please take note they [ the NMSS ] have published on their web-page .....
information that they will gather and produce results from their CCSVI investigative studies .....every 6 months
If you were on the facebook page where they announced that, you might have seen my reply that I can't hold my breath for more than about 60 seconds, and if I thought they were actually looking to find out something that wasn't already known, I might be willing to wait for them to figure it out. But they're not, and I'm not.
I have no illusions about the kind of 'results' I will see from them. I have known a few doctors whose opinions I respect, and I've seen a lot of them in this investigation. At least in Canada, though, I believe doctors are in the clutches of a lot of people who could not practice medicine if they wanted to, and have no idea what it would involve if they tried. Science is the least of their concerns.
The most important decision for 'MS' patients about CCSVI in this country, was taken by a lot of unskilled society fundraisers and prejudiced doctors (not to mention one highly-paid drug company lobbyist) after deliberately excluding anybody who knew anything about it from participating. I have less than zero confidence in this dialogue or its pace. Grassroots is not only the only game in town here, it is the only game, period, in this country, outside of Saskatchewan, until and probably for some time after the election. Shall we wait for 'MS' Society research? Yes lets. Maybe we won't even die waiting... as long as we don't hold our breath.
