Thanks so much everyone for your feed back so far. I hope people will continue. Certainly I have no problem what-so-ever with people referencing or posting links to this study etc.. The more people we can get to take this survey, the more certain we will be of the results. We are certainly short of non-MS respondents.
Combined with another post I did on another site, so far,
of people with MS:
26 with red-head, 8 without. That's 76%. Wow, I never thought it would be THAT prevalent. You have to figure at least some people with CCSVI, won't have red-head, so 75%, wow. Already a combined 34 people with MS have answered, compared to 65 in the original Dr Zamboni study, so this study is already half as big!! In just one day, and with no funding to boot!!
My original worry was that given that Dr Zamboni is just one guy, what if he's wrong. I think we have now already gone a long way towards showing that he is in fact correct.
And it would seem that my super cheapo easy do it yourself at home test might actually work. Good thing because I doubt I was going to be able to get a hold of a Transcranial Color-Coded Doppler Sonography Machine. Well maybe for xmas. If we're lucky maybe the day will come when gym teachers take their class for a run and report back this sign, and children might actually recieve MS treatment before they even get sick.
Clearly over-red-head isn't the best diagnostic tool, but it is the cheapest, and it is potentially a sign of something cardiovascularly wrong. If 75% of MS patients can plainly SEE this, then surely CCSVI is even more prevalent.
The next step is going to be the battle to get CCSVI medically accepted. especially so here in Canada, where I suspect no one gets to be treated or even tested until the goverment comes around (Thanks to the Canadian MS Scociety for recomending no-one get tested, I can't imagine the pain, suffering, deaths, and horrible disfiguring injuries we have prevented by stopping ultrasounds. If they had instead simply written "talk to your docter, and see if testing is right for you" this battle would already be over)
This survey will be one step in the march towards accepting CCSVI as truth. I hope as many people take it as possible. It says, "not only is CCSVI real, but you can see it with your own two eyes!!", not years from now, but right now. I hope you will spread the word!!
