I have posted a message for everyone to read the study found by Tulane University regarding the anitbodies called squalene. Just type in "squalene" in your search engine and you will discover what may be the culprit in the GWS. I will be contacting the immunologist that discovered this antibody. Read all that you can to make sure you understand what happened...the DOD's 'secret' testing on vets. You can e-mail me directly at MBethmiller@aol.com. I am excellent with research and I am determined to find some help for my husband. Civilians must rally together and demand that the government do something because they have denied extremely incriminating reports and they will not help the sick vets. Start getting involved with the research that Tulane University is doing in regards to the 'squalene' discovery. Find out all you can...you will be shocked.
