I've been thinking a lot about the neuro-immune conditions like CFS, FMS. MCS, etc., and I'm wondering if we're just canaries in the mine? In other words, are we all, for some reason (maybe a virus for some, maybe heredity for others, maybe just acute exposure for some), are we all just a sign of things to come? Or maybe a more dramatic manifestation of what is? It seems that so many illnesses have been on the increase lately...cancer, autism, alzheimers...is this all just related to how much we haven't cared for our environment and the world around us? So now, we're maybe the ones with most dramatic effects, but almost everyone in the world is suffering from a world environment that's sick? What do you think?
