I am reposting this because its important. vitamin D it is also accociated with lupus and every other "autoimmune" disease. we really need to throw out this molecular mimicry molarchy. I just found out that it is an unproven theory so lets get rid of it because of it medicine became compartmentalized and doctors arent communicating with each other. it makes us think that the only thing involved is the immune system and the place it attacks. our systems are so delicate and these horrible diseases are the result of multiple system failures. look at the GC gene if you want answers. it is also called vitamin D binding protiens. it is the gene that expresses D metabolite (rotten teeth anyone?) and alphfetaprotien (spina bifida anyone? or scoliosis?) and i think Human serum albumin (porphyrins have metal ions in the center like hello iron). what happens when these ions oxydise? did you know that porphyrins will use any old metal as its center. what if these rusty old metals are recycled and new blood is made. we need binding protien I am thinking. perhaps it might cause a mistep in the heme process i dont know I am still trying to understand. I am working on a new theory and its big and accounts for everything including CCSVI so stay tunned.
