Genteics, again.....

After an article about JK Rowling and her feelings, that MS does not get enough attention, the BBC added the announcement:
Scotland's Hidden Epidemic: The truth about MS, will be broadcast on Wednesday 23 July, on BBC One Scotland at 2245 BST.

Neil Cavuto

Any guess what sort of surgery Fox News Channel's Neil Cavuto is getting for his MS? Wouldn't be surprised if the news outlet got it wrong by saying surgery, and wondering if he's in fact getting something like HiCY...

It of course includes a search function as well, which retrieves a wealth of info when you type in "Multiple sclerosis"

The correlation of smoking and disease progression

There's a new study just released claiming "Smoking worsens the prognosis in multiple sclerosis". I don't see how they can conclude that smoking worsens MS from this study. (correlation does not imply causation etc.). Any thoughts?
