Monday, January २५

The Post published an interesting article regarding Dr. Zamboni and his so-called liberation procedure, it appeared on Saturday, January 23 issue, worth the read if you can get your hands on it.

It lends little credibility to the hypothesis proposed by Dr. Zamboni and essentially blames the media hype created in part by W5 and CTV who encouraged patients to contact their MS societies/physicians to put pressure in order to obtain funding and to line up to get an MRI to get their veins tested. The result a frenzy which basically shut down the normal operation of MS clinics across Canada as they had to deal with the sensationalism created by this hypothesis which are referred to in the article as typical manifestations of junk science video oversimplification, distortion and exaggeration of risk.

If you can get your hands on the article it's a good read in fact an entire page devoted to this hypothesis. If nothing else I am certain it will be quite some time before the media jumps in and reports anything regarding this in the predictable future. Since my diagnosis in 1994 I have as I'm sure you have noticed that stories regarding MS treatment resurface every year or so even though they've been in the spotlight previously the broadcasts often lead you to believe it's something new. I seen this with stem cell research, bone marrow transplant to name a few. With the backlash created by Dr. Zamboni's findings I am quite certain the media outlets will be very quiet for quite some time.

Enjoy the read if you can get your hands on it. The article was written by Tom Blackwell he provides his e-mail at the end of the article as
