Anyway, we are wondering about how to decide ...

Key myelin protein, MBP, seen to break down differently in brains of MS patients

Researchers monitoring the decomposition of an abundant brain protein, called myelin basic protein (MBP), discovered that this protein breaks down differently in people with multiple sclerosis than it does in those without the disease, particularly in two surface regions, and that difference may be the trigger for immune reactions and myelin damage...Read more - http://www.ms-uk.org/key-myelin-protein-mbp-seen-break-down-differently-brains-ms-patients-121216

Stop it with steel

Once again I write on the same theme. MS is stopped completely if you wear a layer of steel about the head at night. This can be as simple as steel wirewool under a baseball cap. It may sound crazy but it works. Try it! It has been used by the author with 33 years of MS for more than 2 years. Brain lesions have almost completely disappeared. Symptoms have vanished after 30 years. For ...
