is the layer that forms around nerves. Its purpose is to speed
the transmission of impulses along nerve cells.
central nervous system is comprised of the brain and spinal
cord. The peripheral nervous system includes all peripheral

(MS) is an unpredictable disease of the nervous system in
which communication between the brain and other parts of
the body is disrupted. Its effects can range from
relatively benign in most cases to somewhat disabling to
devastating. The symptoms may mysteriously occur and then
disappear. In the worst cases, a person with MS may be
unable to write, speak, or walk. Approximately 350,000
Americans have MS."
"During an MS
attack, inflammation occurs in areas of the white matter
(pale-colored nerve tissue) of the central nervous
system in random patches called plaques. This is followed
by destruction of myelin, the fatty covering that
insulates nerve cell fibers in the brain and spinal cord.
Myelin allows for the smooth, high-speed transmission of
electrochemical messages between the brain, the spinal
cord, and the rest of the body. When myelin is damaged,
neurological transmission of messages may be slowed or
blocked completely, resulting in diminished or lost
MS is accompanied
by the following signs and symptoms.
- Weakness in
motor skills and loss of muscle coordination
- Blurred vision
- Heat sensitivity
- Loss of bladder
- Memory loss,
the National MS Society describes it, "Without myelin,
signals transmitted through the central nervous system are
slowed, garbled ...

there some similarities? I noticed in the film that they
had a trial study of immune suppression, which leads me to
believe that the immune system was noticed as being 'over
active' I would suspect autoimmune.

someone gets lung cancer that cigarette smoking either

people in our town have died of 'lung cancer' and I
note that they had exposure to 2-butoxyethanol.
One had tumors also in the brain; another had hemorrhaging

of cancer: lung, lymph, bone and liver.
