    Alzheimers, Parkinsons, MS, a many other neuro-immune illnesses are threatening to swamp the U.S. medical system, especially as the babyboomers get older. By 2020, there will be 80 million people over the age of 65 in this country. The rates of dementia, disability, invalidism will skyrocket. (I put CFS/FM right smack in the middle of these illnesses , in case you were wondering why I was posting this.)

    President Obama has suggested a huge new NIH project aimed at mapping the brain's function, patterned after the success of the Human Genome Project. We may finally be getting somewhere. My comment here, "Thank God, the right man won the election." If this is "big government" then please, give me more of it!
