SYSTEM CONNECTING BRAIN TO IMMUNE SYSTEM FOUND – AUTISM RECONSIDERED?

In ALL ARTICLES on September 16, 2015 at 11:47 am
“In contradiction to decades of medical education, a direct connection has been reported between the brain and the immune system….It seems astonishing that, after centuries of dissection, a system of lymphatic vessels could have survived undetected.”

EVERY time I have a conversation with someone who is 100% sure, I laugh inside and remember that everything we know for sure will be disproved within our lifetimes.
 
Medical science was 100% sure:
the heart doesn’t regenerate…wrong
the brain and central nervous system doesn’t regenerate…wrong
all of the ligaments have been found…wrong
butter is healthier, margarine is healthier, butter, margarine…wrong
stem cells don’t work…wrong
cholesterol is bad…wrong
and on and on and on and now…
 
This changes everything.

“It changes entirely the way we perceive the neuro-immune interaction,” says Kipnis. “We always perceived it before as something esoteric that can’t be studied. But now we can ask mechanistic questions.”

MS is known to be an example of the immune system attacking the brain, although the reasons are poorly understood. The opportunity to study lymphatic vessels that link the brain to the immune system could transform our understanding of how these attacks occur, and what could stop them. The causes of Alzheimer’s disease are even more controversial, but may also have immune system origins, and the authors suggest protein accumulation is a result of the vessels failing to do their job.

Indeed, Kipnis claims, “We believe that for every neurological disease that has an immune component to it, these vessels may play a major role.”

This changes everything.

Every single study dealing with brain and immune and GI systems must be revisited and re-evaluated.

For example, it begs the question…With so many people saying Autism is a neurological malfunction and so many people saying Autism is immune system caused and so many saying it is nutritional and heavy metal toxin caused…if these systems are all interconnected, perhaps they are all right.  Is it time to reconsider the cause (causes!) of Autism?
