There is some suspicion in the medical community that the underlying causes of Lyme, Fibro, MS, Crohns and other conditions running rampant across our country are related in some way. Hopefully there will be progress if they can get congress to act on research grants... But with the current economic problems I don't see them jumping on this. And I think I know why... EVERYBODY worked on a cure for polio because it KILLED lots of people, especially children. Cancer & Aids get big press because they kill people.
Lyme, Fibro, Crohns, MS and other autoimmune conditions take a looooonnngggg time to contribute to death, and in the mean time just make people's lives miserable. The conditions that afflict us aren't obvious to the casual onlooker and unless someone you know has one of these diseases or disorders most people don't pay attention to them at all. Basically, people just don't care because they have so many other things going on. Thanks for the link.
