Worms

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Worms

Bob,

Here's the deal. Attached is a worm / immune system article. The deal is that you take two weeks off from posting.

My inbox is crammed with e-mails asking me to ban you for good. In my recent poll on the popularity of posters you got a worse score than Harry Z.

Nothing personal Bob, but I've got to think of the other users.

I saw that article earlier today, but had trouble getting past the rug on the guy's head.

Yeah, but what if I view the article and act like I never saw this posting?

It hurts that you are better than I am in finding helminth immunomodulation articles, but I thank you from the bottom of my wormy old heart Ian!

(No shit? WORSE than Harry Z??)

PS...gwa, Joel Weinstock is my hero. He doesn't wear a rug, his hair just leans forward so much that you can't see the roots! :oops:

That is fine, Lyon. You can chow down his recommended worms. I am going to keep munching bromley's chocolates.

You might just be getting your dose of worms from bromley's chocolate :oops:

By the time viper's chocolates arrived, all that was left in the wrapper was the smell of chocolate! http://www.thisisms.com/ftopicp-29181-c ... html#29181

has earned Weinstock the title of "Best and Brightest" from Esquire magazine, which honored him in its recent "Genius Issue."
hmmm.. yes... Esquire, a very respected member of the scientific community. Probably where he found the advert for his rug. :)

:lol: Seriously though, I may differ with his outlooks on some things but as far as I can tell, he was the right guy at the right place in time to consider that the loss of helminth parasites might be responsible for the origination of these autoimmune/inflammatory diseases and should be considered in any disease which drastically increased in incidence as countries "develop". Kids with autism are being treated with helminth parasites with favorable results and that was a disease I personally had never considered to be related to the loss of human parasites.

As the loss of helminth parasites becomes generally accepted in the scientific community as the cause of the autoimmune/inflammatory diseases, I imagine people will take up a collection and buy Dr Weinstock a more believable hair piece.
