New proof that narcolepsy is an autoimmune disease -- ScienceDaily
'To kill other cells, e.g. neurons producing hypocretin, CD4 and CD8 T cells usually have to work together. In 2018, scientists discovered autoreactive CD4 T cells in narcolepsy patients. This was really the first proof that narcolepsy is in fact an autoimmune disease. Now we have provided more, important proof: that CD8 T cells are autoreactive too,' says Birgitte Rahbek Kornum.

MS Hope - Multiple Sclerosis Treatment
Matt Embry is pushing to get the MS Society of Canada (which spends only 16% of revenue on research) to pay less attention to the pharmaceutical companies and more to research. He promotes an anti-inflammatory diet (no dairy, limited red meat) and a variety of common vitamins and supplements. Pts should be checked for CSSVI (chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency), which has been correlated with MS. See also Dr. Zamboni and www.direct-ms.org

Matt has been harassed by the MSoC.
