And I quote …

Most of us at some juncture in our lives have played out in our minds how devastating it would be to have our doctor hand down cancer diagnosis or to warn us that we are at risk for a heart attack or stroke. Magazine articles television dramas and news headlines all bring such images home. But consider an equally devastating health crisis scenario, one that you rarely hear spoken about openly, one that receives almost no media attention. Imagine the slow, creeping escalation of seemingly amorphous symptoms: a tingling in the arms and fingers, the sudden appearance of a speckled rash across the face, the strange muscle weakness in the legs when climbing stairs, the fiery joints that imerge out of nowhere – any and all of which can signal the onset of a wide range of life altering and often debilitating autoimmune diseases.  —The Autoimmune Epidemic
