I know this is common in activists and campaigners: we keep haranguing away even after our point is not only accepted but assumed. But, when I read articles like this I want to send it back to Laura2002 with a hug and a high-five:
The Starving Brain by Wenda Reed
This article is filled with SCIENCE and reinforced by comments by NEDA's director emphasizing the science and the departure from the myths of the past.
It includes comments by patients and their families!
I am going to run out of exclamation points!!
Really, thank you Wenda Reed, and Seattle Woman, and all the people quoted. This is the kind of article that offers genuine hope and grounded information for families seeking care. This is all people like me want, really.
