@dvtrv , forgetting the link! A bit of MS brain there, methinks.

But, here’s another link about this breakthrough, from two years ago :-

Phew! Glad I remembered the link. That would have been embarrassing. 😊

The standard of science journalism is pretty poor. 8f you set-up a variety of Google alerts (easy and anyone can do it) you can get information delivered to you in a digest form. You’ll soon see the breathy BS articles. I have seen similar headlines on occasion for the last 25y

Broadly speaking, there are two strands to the credible scientific work. The first is about halting and/or stopping the disease. The second is about repairing the damage it does to the central nervous system. Some of these are discrete and others intersect.

The Swank diet, goat serum, bee sting therapy are some of the ‘cures’ that I remember.

When there is any real progress you hear about it across a range of media. A single source is more clickbait than credible.

Best,

The clue about the low quality of reporting is in the first paragraph

They say ‘dilapidating’ when they mean to say ‘debilitating’. Such an egregious error means that either the sub-editors are also as poor or, more likely, there aren’t any.

If you dug into that self-appointed news source I imagine it is two people and a dog trying to ‘be something’ and make ad revenue.

Best,

Dominic

Agree @dominics, first line gives it away.
If anyone is in any doubt read the link posted by @stumbler

Pardon, I found it difficult to understand
Do you mean the research is not honest or true?
Or did you just criticized the way of reporting.

@nutshell88 – research and sciences topics, in general, are usually reported very poorly by non-specialist media.

The article is so badly written they manage to get their describing adjective completely wrong.

Best,

Dominic

Hey @stumbler

Not sure is MS brain or age of brain or possibly the fact I’ve an awful memory.

Either, excuse the pun, I can’t remember.😧

I saw this new before too. Poorly written. Article doesn’t say much. Not even published in a serious journal.

Good to know.

Good job I’m not too gullible.

Thanks for that
