Scientific Study Shows No Benefit From A Questionable MS Treatment Advanced By Both Medical And Political Charlatans ...

Progressive Bloggers    

There is nothing new about a politician trying to get in front of a parade. Three years ago, Saskatchewan's Premier Brad Wall elbowed his way to the front of the line to thrust tax dollars into the hands of medical researchers who were advancing 'false hope' for thousands of Multiple Sclerosis victims.

  July 2010 - Saskatchewan's Wall vows to fund contentious MS treatment
"In a striking departure from his political counterparts across the country, Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says his government will finance clinical trials of liberation therapy, a contentious experimental procedure for multiple sclerosis patients.
The move shunts Saskatchewan to the forefront of Canadian efforts to introduce a treatment that has researchers, politicians and the MS community divided over the roots of the mysterious nerve-wasting disease and the pace of Canadian medical research."

Unfortunately for those who suffer from MS, neither medical nor political charlatans have provided any demonstrated positive results from all of their hype.

October 2013 - No link between narrowed veins and MS: Canadian-led study "A study published in the British medical journal The Lancet finds that narrowing of the veins leading from the brain -- a condition called CCSVI -- is just as prevalent in patients with Multiple Sclerosis as in people without the disease.
The study, funded by the MS Society of Canada and led by Dr. Anthony Traboulsee of the University of British Columbia, calls into question the controversial theory that MS is caused by or associated with CCSVI, or chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency."
