    Wow, thanks, Rich!

    Okay, scientist types: if a switch can be turned to START to make retroviruses kill cancer cells, can it be turned to STOP when the retrovirus itself is causing disease, as in AIDS and possibly in ME/CFS? I'm probably oversimplifying the relationship of retroviruses to cancer and to AIDS but to this lay mind under cognitive attack by ME/CFS, it makes sense.

    Is this Canada week?

    Now we just need to hear from Jolicouer & Stein. Oh - and maybe Dr Carruthers could come out of retirement. And maybe the HIV Research Center could start doing some type of clinical trial with WPI.

    This may be relevant here since this was just published regarding the methylation state in regards to autism.
