Pork Plant update

Call me crazy...but I'm hoping that this situation will lead to further understanding of MS. Still more pork plant workers are contracting this brand new type of inflammatory neuropathy. A unique pattern of antibodies has been found in all the workers.

New details on the neurological illness that has affected workers at several pork processing plants will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 60th ...
