Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
I do wonder at times. Homocysteine is mentioned briefly in this
article, is it because the author wants to cover all bases? Dr. Kilmer
McCully was way ahead of his time when he saw the importance of
Homocysteine as it affects and reflects the status of human health.
I would have thought that a mention of his name wouldn't be too much to
ask ?! Yes, I realize that the mere mention of a great man like Dr.McCully
would detract from your own importance but what about giving credit
Homocysteine (Hcy) is still regarded a bit like the proverbial
Aschenputtel (Cinderella) but this is bound to change very quickly.
Those doctors still espousing the cholesterol fairytale will be left
behind, shunned, ridiculed and they will wonder why life can be so cruel.
There is bound to be be a return to traditional values, handed down by our
ancestors (and largely ignored and forgotten) and, if there is not,
mankind will be doomed.
At the present rate it will be about three generations before the end.
Oh, Folate. Yes the US government is fortifying foods with it.
Hooray! It is too little and, I hope, not too late.
