Hi,
have any of you ever experienced trouble with episcleritis? Episcleritis is a mild inflammatory condition of the outer layer of the sclera (white area of the eye), resulting in a red eye. Sometimes it is also associated with mild discomfort, pain etc. This is nothing serious at all, probably why it is not mentioned very often in litterature.

I read some years ago on a MS forum that this condition could be associated with ...

More on Hexavalent Chromium & Tracking of Toxic Substanc

Since my previous post regarding Hexavalent Chromium (CRVI), it's been nagging in the back of my mind. I don't know why, though.

Anyway, I looked it up further. Shoot, I forgot to take note of where I'm copying this from, but I'll post it anyway:


...."Because of structural similarity to phosphate, which is transported into all types of cells, if Cr(VI) does reach a cell, it can enter it. Once Cr(VI) enters the cell, it ...

Articles in "Forbes" Magazine (11-1-04 Issue)

Well, we haven't had a good political discussion for a while (just where IS Harry, anyway? :wink: )

There are a couple of interesting articles in Forbes magazine today.

Recognise this Language?

Hi,

Does anybody recognise the language?

Bu yukumlulukle birlikte bu mesaji ve eklerini kullanamaz, kopyalayamaz baska kisilere gonderemez ve aciklayamazsiniz.


If so, where might I get it translated?

It is a snippet from an email I received, I think from someone asking about MS.

thanks
