    Should we have a birth month poll?

    Unfortunately it could be more complicated if common viruses can reactivate HERVs via the mother during gestation. Perhaps developmental stage determines or predisposes one for the exact type of illness that results (schizophrenia; MS; Lupus; bipolar disorder; ALS - ME/CFS)?

    i wonder if, once activated, HERV's have to be treated continuously, or can we take ARV's for a limited time period to silence them..?

    my guess would be that we need to treat them forever
