Porphyria Perspective


Comment

"The Dayans report that King George III suffered from variegate porphyria, but the evidence favors a different disease, acute intermittent porphyria"

One might think since they say there to be 300 different kinds of arthritis that maybe the medical profession has begun to believe this 'baffling with bullsht'. It will become awfully hard to conquer disease when everyone is of the mindset all diseases even if they manifest almost alike / IE: arthritis they cannot be 'lumped' all into the SAME category OF simply arthritis. I suppose it might make more money for 'specialists'.
Porphyria is porphyria. JUST as arthritis is arthritis. Imho.
