Mods - Phlebotomy and chelation questions?

Should chelation/phlebotomy talk be moved to it's own forum? I do believe something is required as part of CCSVI to help get rid of the iron, but I feel this forum should specifically be for CCSVI.
Chelation is an extremely sensitive topic as many people feel it is 'snake oil', and many people fervently believe in it.
I think having so many posts about it on the CCSVI forum could lead people who stop in to check out CCSVI to get side tracked in this controversial idea and those that firmly believe it is snake oil will put CCSVI in the same boat.
I would like to see all chelation posts put in their own forum, any thoughts?

I'm sorry I can't modify the poll but the word 'thread' should be replaced by 'forum' in each option.

Can we include Chelation and Phlebotomy together? They have the same purpose ultimately. Reduction of iron (or other metals) in the body.
People with hemochromatosis and anemia don't have blood taken, they use chelation. I have high stores of iron and very high hemoglobin, so I could give lots of blood, so that's the way to go for me. Also maybe keep the hemachromatosis gene testing in there too. This can show a propensity to load iron more than others.

The results have been miraculous for me. I'm back to normal at the moment. Five days and counting :D

i think only arron can make a new forum for chelation or whatever else. i am not sure - maybe NHE will check in here - but the request may already have been forwarded and we are just waiting for a response.
