Email from Yves Savoie MS Society of Canada president

As I've donated to the MS Society of Canada in the past I got a general update email from them this afternoon. Take a look at the PS! I added the website link but it was embedded in the actual email.

Thanks to support from coast-to-coast, we were able to reach 97 percent of Members of Parliament in June 2009 and let them know what is needed to improve incomes for people affected by MS ...

A Logo and a Name for us

Discussed in the "Marketing"-Thread ( ), there's some evidence (though preliminary :wink: ) that the CCSVI movement could use a logo. It really looks like there's some sort of new organisation forming! So I made some attempts but wasn't satisfied with it myself. Now I've finished it.

But my thoughts were, there also should be a name to the movement ...

Iron in Zamboni's theory

Now Iron bothers me, cause one neuro said something like this:
"Biochemicly Zamboni's theory can't be right about iron accumulation, cause iron is in red-cells and redcells has to break to release iron.. and there is no proof of that"
And "Iron should be seen in MRI clearly, but you don't.." etc etc

So what do you think? Im sure Zamboni is right that iron accumulation relates to CCSVI, but precisely how? This iron thing ...

Torben Fog

Found this blog post this morning - don't recall reading about this guy before, though tit might be of interest ...

Noting the theory of Putnam (1930-1939) that thrombosis of small veins may be the underlying mechanism of plaque formation, and the studies on this by Dow and Berglund (1942), Zimmermann and Netsky (1950), and his ...
