This is a comprehensive handling of a highly mysterious subject, probably one that has been about for thousands of years, untreated and misdiagnosed.
What continues to puzzle the writer ( a non
medical expert)'is how the basic causes are somehow never correctly addressed.
What in Gods name would cause the body's own T immune system to set about attacking the very protective coat that surrounds nerve transmitters.. This process, if we can call it that, is somehow never subject to scrutiny and the current writer suspects that researchers actually haven't a clue as to why myelin is under attack, without logic nor reason.
Your author is also aware of a curious anomaly not connected with MS.
Would it be possible to forward some explanation as to why the definite article throughout each extract is highlighted in yellow?
To what end and for what precise reason?
In closing, your current reviewer should perhaps mention that he has been able to both identify and diagnose several symptoms consistent and prevalent with MS.
This has the valuable effect of being neutral to vested interests and the many complications which can arise during a long term exposure and permanent manifestation of symptoms and signs.
