I came across this because there is actually a section on how to avoid it, in the user manual to my oven. It gives scientific validity to the raw foods movement, as its found commonly in baked and fried foods. They appear to have only discovered it in 2002.
Acrylamide is neurotoxic in a number of animal species. Central nervous system effects predominate in acute poisoning, whereas peripheral neuropathy occurs with repeated ...

Saw this in an article on Novartis today:

So I'm thinking

I don't want to go on Rebif and I would rather use copaxone. I know I need to consult my doctor and I plan on doing so this coming week. A big plus for me is the seemingly non-existent side effects associated with copaxone. The most common side effects(swelling at the site etc) are also associated with rebif and it lacks the increased fatigue associated with interferons. Also, although I am no doctor I feel ...

This is a total side note to MS. ACheerleader wrote some stuff about thinking her husband may have this (AC, forgive me if it wasn't you, but it was someone on here). At any rate, it looks like it is getting the attention of the CDC now.

I don't know how to make the link work in terms of just clicking it, but there's the address of ...

Extension study

Got the paperwork yesterday detailing the goodies about the extension study--which begins for me on May 1.

Here's what I've learned so far:

As promised, all guinea pigs get the real gunk. Yippee!

However, Opexa has decided (as of just a few days ago) that they aren't going to disclose until the end of the trial which formula we were on for Part One. I'm not sure what to make of that one. On the ...

surface skin numbness

I noticed about a year ago the surface skin on the outer portion of both my lower thighs went numb after a shot. Two shots actually, one each thigh. I figure I hit a nerve or something. Maybe was a little too low on the leg. Anyone else have this happen? I didn't get to alarmed over it and the feeling is slowly coming back. Been a Ribif junkie for about 3 years now. Lovin ...

Shall I Stop Rebif now waiting for Tysabri?


I saw my neuro Tuesday and he would like me to start Tysabri. I am pleased about it (although it means my MS is progressing which sucks) though it will be a bit of time til I start - have to have another MRI and a lumber puncture first.
