|I just got the news from medpagetoday.com that a new Multiple Sclerosis drug called Tecfidera received FDA approval today (3/27/13). How does Tecfidera work? I’m just so glad you asked because to scientists this is important. According to the website, It is believed that Tecfidera works by activating the nuclear factor-like 2 transcriptional pathway, thereby reducing oxidative stress that contributes strongly to demyelination. I know that you’re wondering…could it really be that simple?|
Forget the marketing name “Tecfidera”, but remember its chemical name dimethyl fumarate, because this name allows us to better understand how this drug works for MS.-or better yet, what causes MS!
2006-The Journal of Food Science states that a concentration of dimethyl fumarate inhibited mold from growing on bread.
According to ehow.com, dimethyl fumarate (DMF) is usually used in pouches fastened inside furniture or added to shoe boxes to protect the product from fungus and mold. It is a fine white crystalline powder that becomes airborne and impregnates the product. When it gets on clothing that touches the skin, it can cause an allergic reaction.
It is highly likely that MS is yet another mycotoxin induced disease. As these neurotoxic and poisonous mycotoxins come in contact with the myelin sheaths, they cause them and therefore patient with MS to deteriorate. We don't need more toxic chemicals to treat fungal diseases. We need knowledge. I hope this provides that knowledge.
