"Our results indicate that CCSVI has a role neither in MS risk nor in MS severity. Ann Neurol 2011".
My results indicate precisely the opposite, go figure. That box of trophy Avonex is still in my fridge if y'all wanna bid on it, though it has expired for over 2 years... I worked on Saturday, in the 90 degree heat, specially requested for the overtime ($) as a reward for stellar job performance, and had to work some of the time in full safety gear (goggles, hard hat, face shield, thick rubber gloves), which included a rubber rain jacket over my work clothes, in the full sun. It was miserable beyond comprehension, and I finished the task and passed inspection and got things buttoned up and the employer is thrilled. The heat was miserable, I was miserable, as anyone would be in such a circumstance, but not once did I face the familiar disorientation, insta-fog, light headedness, lack of focus, forgetfulness, weakness that was experienced in the identical situation the last time I donned such work gear which was 2007, not even close. So that's another "put it to a real test" situation which was passed with flying colors.
My apprentice didn't fair as well, 5 minutes into it he had to get out and strip his gear off, wondering how I did all the work earlier in the day by myself for up to 20 minute stretches. Haha. Kids, whatcha gonna do?
Proofs in the puddin people, some things ya just can't fake. Wish the concluders in the aforementioned quote could have been there, they can have the MS back, don't need it any more, I'll stick with CCSVI for the time being...
