    Re: Blood-brain barrier

    Makes great sense. One of the first things I noticed after
    first chlordane poisoning was that a cup of coffee made me
    feel like I was doing amphetamine. I grew up drinking
    coffee milk and a cup or so a day, but had to give it up
    except for occasionally.

    Damage to the blood-brain barrier makes so much sense.I've
    been reading everything I can even an old medical book at
    home was so telling.I don't think neurologist can see this
    on current brain scans. Still searching if it's like
    alzheimers and info only when dead. But, I asked a doctor
    (gp) if the barrier was damaged ould that help you
    understand cs better(he thought it was an allergy &or
    anxiety disorder ) and he said yes it would make a
    difference. Anyone have any info bec I think this would help
    us with credibility.
