Autoimmune disease rising steadily

19 Mar

According to recent reports in Alternet, an alternative media there is somewhat of an epidemic of autoimmune diseases that no one is talking about. We are focused on the big three or four diseases: cancer, diabetes, heart, obesity – but there are others just as alarming but I suppose they are not that sexy for the media as yet.

     In my own small circle of acquaintances I have heard of several people, young people coming down with multiple sclerosis, lupus and diseases like these.  Could it be that our environment is turning against us. We have damaged our environment to such an extent that we may be paying the price for it with out health.

    The report stated that autoimmune diseases are the eith leading cause of death among women. Autoimmune diseases include: lupus, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, Sjojgren’s, and type 1 diabetes.
