Unfortunately, there is no forum rule against trolling is there? Of course, no one can "prove" anything about a troll...that is why they can go about trolling and get away with it. Ervish has mischaracterized the products in question as "snake oil" when in fact the study in the press release involved probiotics and parents of autistic children reported a 30% improvement in various symptoms over 3 weeks. VIPdx's only involvement is that they offer a test of some of the "Ig this and Ig that" that were improved during the study. None of this has anything to do with this thread. If Ervish wants to discuss homeopathics or their use in the treatment of autism, she should go the homeopatic treatments thread. I personally don't see how homeopathics could work for anything, but the health system of UK pays for such treatments and the Queen of England uses them, so to smear those who want to try them and those who sell them, and an affiliated lab that offers the tests used in their study, in a thread about the WPI paper in Science is nothing more than trolling. Just my opinion. To try to smear Mikovits for speaking at an autism conference when she has found XMRV in 35% of samples from autistic patients is just more trolling. Just my opinion. ETA: sorry, I misread the name. I should have said Impish, not Ervish. My apologies for getting it wrong...brain fog.
