New discoveries show importance of veins

The new discoveries of the lymphatic vessels and immune cells in the CNS and the glymphatic clearance system of the sleeping brain are pointing to the importance of the veins that drain the brain.

Several years ago I was at the dentist (my favorite place to be) and getting a cavity fixed. As the dentist is starting to work, I stop him and tell him that I feel everything.
