Aspartame not bad for your health

So, Aspartame isn't neurotoxic after all. Be aware that the Burdock Group has close ties with the food industry, and the study was funded by Ajinomoto company inc, which is a Japanese giant producing amino acids, livestock foodstuffs, and dietary substances. I'm not questioning their independence, just advising that you consume this with a pinch of monosodium glutamate:

Stupid Study

I read this study and it really pissed me off. Is it really saying that the majority of us are just crazy?!!! What criteria do they use to determine that these people presented with psychiatric manifestations? These kind of studies just perpetuate the feelings of the outside world that our problems are only in our minds.

Organ, marrow, and blood donations

Hi to all,

Is there any clinical evidence as to whether or not someone with MS should be an organ donor, participate in the bone marrow donation program, or donate blood.

Genes gone awry

I've run this through my patented, " Gobbledygook – to – English", translating machine and it would appear that, during a relapse, a number of genes are expressed which prevent the white blood cells from killing themselves at the correct time. This would mean that immune system activity, which might start out as just a normal bit of housekeeping, goes on for far too long and leads to damage:


Impaired expression of peripheral blood apoptotic-related ...

Nightly Night Sweats

Hi there everyone - I am new to this Board and am in need of some help please! I am suffering from dreadful drenching night sweats and have done so for months and months. Doctors are at a loss to explain this which has been very frustrating. Does anyone else suffer from this and if so, how often do you get them? Is this related to MS? I am on Avonex and have been so ...

To Brock...

Brock--a few months back, you and I had a conversation about my daughter's EDSS score. I thought it was like .06. Just learned my daughter has never been told any of her EDSS scores.

She just ordered copies of all of her medical records from her MS specialist. They only recorded two EDSS scores ?????? The first one was 3.0 not a .06. (This in 2005).

What is also interesting to me is on her ...
