Is there an Autoimmune

FDR didn't have polio, scientists say
Writing in the Journal of Medical Biography,
Armond Goldman and colleagues said some
of Roosevelt's symptoms did resemble those of polio,
which is caused by a virus that can leave crippling side
effects. They include his fever
when he first became ill and the permanent paralysis of
some lower muscles.
|But others "were consistent with paralytic
poliomyelitis that effects motor neurons but were
typical of Guillian-Barré syndrome,
an autoimmune disease that damages sensory and motor
nerves," Goldman said in a statement. For
instance, FDR was 39 when the disease struck -- polio
usually affects younger people -- his paralysis affected
both sides of the body evenly, he had partial facial
paralysis early on, numbness, extreme prolonged pain and
bladder and bowel dysfunction.
syndrome is an inflammatory affliction in which the
body's immune system attacks the peripheral nerves
— those nerves beyond the brain and spinal
cord. The disorder causes severe weakness and numbness
in the legs and arms , upper body and face. The muscles
used for eye movement, speaking, chewing and swallowing
also may become weak and paralyzed.
Every year an estimated
one to four in every 100,000 persons is affected by the
disorder, which can strike anyone regardless of race or
age. It does, however, appear to be more of a risk as
people age. It may occur days or weeks after a viral
infection such as influenza
or diarrhea and could be
triggered by pregnancy or a medical procedure such as
minor surgery. Because the cause of the disorder is
unknown, there's no way to prevent it from occurring

by Laura Beil
The Dallas Morning News
A virus that contaminated polio vaccines in the 1950s
appears to be associated with non-Hodgkin's
lymphoma, researchers from Dallas and Houston
reported last week. The virus, called SV40, is a monkey
virus that contaminated vaccines from 1955 to 1963. It had
previously been linked to some brain and bone
tumors, but its association with non-Hodgkin's
lymphoma had remained unclear.
lymphoma is a malignancy of certain white blood cells.
Experts have been puzzled to see the disease move from
relative obscurity to become the fifth most common cancer in
the United States. It is the disease that killed

diabetes & obesity ... is that also true for France,
Germany, Poland, Russia?
say NHL has increased by 50% ... way too dramatic to
be a hereditary thing alone ... SO ... since I do
suspect this ...
And also Brain tumors ..
Are these also in these countries considered
dramatically increased by the epidemiologists?
Reply from a French journalist:
About your question on obesity : yes, it's dramatically
increasing in France too. But it 's very difficult to establish
a link with toxic exposure on an epidemiological scale.
Nevertheless, I'm convinced that metabolic features (changes in cholesterol
and lipid profile, changes in glucose uptake and cell use, mitochondrial
diseases and so on) are among main underestimated
