Saturated Fat: Friend or Foe?

Saturated Fat: Friend or Foe? (2017)
https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.10 ... 43027-0_21

Abstract
Reducing consumption of dietary saturated fat (SFA) has been part of dietary recommendations for many years as a means to prevent cardiovascular outcomes. Yet, recent research has challenged this very basic concept in preventive nutrition. Data have suggested that LDL-C raising effect of dietary SFA may be influenced by its dietary source, cheese having less hypercholesterolemic effects than butter. ...

In grade or high school, back when platform shoes were ...

CBD for helping with MS.

http://www.cbdmultiplesclerosis.com

Felt that this was a very informative site for anyone considering CBD or cannabis as a way to treat or relieve pain for their MS. There are studies discussed in a few articles that indicate it relieves pain, tension and spasticity.

I'm curious what it can do. CBD in particular. I live where it is available legally.
Has anyone given it a try or know anything else about CBD for MS?

Glatiramer Acetate kills bacteria

They do not say that its mechanism of action in MS is related to bacteria, but it is interesting anyway.

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-15969-3

Could the action in MS be related with the antibacterial behaviour? Difficult to say, but look at this:

Even more voices against the autoimmune model

Currently there is much more evidence against the autoimmune model than against any other, including the more controversial ones, like CCSVI or gut microbioma. But supporters of autoimmunity, for some unknown reason, are still allowed to speak about their superstitions as a dogma.

Well. There are more articles against them. This time the whole article is freely available at:

*Mechanisms of Disease and Strategies for Myelin and Axonal Repair

Some extracts:

*Despite several published attempts ...

CCSVI dead - surely an apology needed from Cheerleader

no ifs, no buts.

CCSVI is dead and buried. It was fakery and bad science and promoted by Cheerleader.

MSers wasted time and money.

If it really worked (now around for 10 years) this site would have shut down as readers would have all experienced the claimed miracles.

Next time you aggressively promote a treatment - check the facts Cheerleader.
