Barts MS Blog

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects about 2.5 million people in the world and nobody understands what causes it; it might even be a virus.  What is odd is that incidence around the equator is extremely low, but the further away you go the higher it gets; Canada and Scotland having very high incidence.

About 75 million people around the world have some degree of autism.

The Bart American readers will be familiar with

The connection between autism and MS is myelin, or rather the lack of it.  This will feature in an upcoming post.

This post is to highlight what one London hospital does for the MS community. 
Barts is short for Saint Bartholomew's Hospital. They have a great scientific blog where doctors and researchers interact with people affected by MS.

It is a great site and has had over 5 million page views.

There is no equivalent anywhere for autism.  Insightful doctors and researchers happily answering the, sometimes repetitive, questions of those affected.  A visitor from another planet might find that strange.

Lisa’s Autism Blog, perhaps?

All is not lost.

Simons' Blog is great, but he has a lot of help.  Paul’s Blog is highly informative and all his own work.
