I think BUMP means entering a post in a thread so that it will appear at the top of the list and consequently come to the attention of people who may have missed it. It's definitely ok to have more posts when a thread is bumped.
Sorry though, I don't know if yoga would keep your veins flexible. Sounds logical.....
Now, I'm bumping the thread because there's a new abstract (full text of the article is open access) that could be relevant to the inflammation discussion.
Role of platelets in neuroinflammation: a wide-angle perspective
The role of platelets in inflammation is well appreciated in the cardiovascular and cancer research communities but appears to be relatively neglected in neurological research.
Now, what makes this interesting (at least to me) is that one of the authors is R. Zivadinov from Buffalo. Starting on page 34 of the article there's a discussion: Platelets in multiple sclerosis: smoking gun?
I must say I don't understand the article at all, so I wanted to post it hoping someone else might. In particular, I wonder if the info in the article might shed more speculative light on Buffalo's "therapeutic angioplasty" (per their newsletter) that will be different from Dr. Zamboni's or Dr. Dake's interventions for CCSVI? Anyone care to hazard a comment? Maybe not related at all......
