@MCBazacoPhD One of many Qs about toxo.@MCBazacoPhD I'd love to hear an epidemiologist involved in MS research to speak to this Q, but haven't seen a quote from any yet.@MCBazacoPhD Still, you'd think it'd have shown up *somewhere* given potential MS links to infectious diseases (e.g. measles), no?@MCBazacoPhD Brainfart. Should have said "epi" studies not "case-control." Was thinking more of retrospective studies of medical data.@ainzlie I think so http://t.co/HsuyT92p9u@ainzlie You mean actual cheese made with Michael Pollan's belly button bugs?
