Just a reminder HarryZ that not all "mainstream" researchers are devils and every individual with a fringe idea is not an angel. Hope everyone has a nice Christmas and Happy New Year!
Yes, I very well realize this and I know a couple of mainstream researchers who have given their careers in trying to find the answer to this dreaded disease. And believe me, after following MS research for over 40 years I am quite aware of the "fringe" people out there whose ethics are non existent.
I have little patience, though, with people who immediately trash new ideas and possibilites when it comes to MS research. I have seen how organizations such as the NMSS work behind the scenes to squash something they don't want to see progress. Let's just say I have seen and heard some pretty disgusting things in the world of MS medicine over the years and it leaves a sour taste.
Will this latest theory have any merit...who knows, only time will tell. But I can guarantee one thing...the scientist who published it is going to get a lot of grief from the established group, even before it is examined.
And a very Merry Christmas to you. Take care.
