Even if you’re not exercising, you lose about 10 cups of water each day, according to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

aluminum

Dr. Mercola article on how aluminum effects the body. It is a suspect in autoimmune disease. I have been making my own deodorant for years. The arrow root powder may be hard to fine. I use corn starch as a substitute. Works well and saves money.

They aren't painful. Just there. One on my arm was very itchy at first, but otherwise fine. Also, when I give myself the injection, shooting the Rebif in hurts like hell. Not the needle...the actual medication going into ...

As ...

There has also been speculation, but I don't think anything conclusive as to how Pesticides and Toxins can have neurological effects.

Have there been more conclusive studies about pesticides influence in MS?
