Hmm, the bit in Did Not Do The Research slating the show for saying that Multiple Sclerosis isn't fatal was, to be blunt, badly researched in itself.

It took me five seconds in google to find this link

http://www.clevelandclinicmeded.com/medicalpubs/diseasemanagement/neurology/multiple_sclerosis/#s0085

click down to outcomes and bam, this hits you: "Patients can progress rapidly over several months to death, or they might have a few relapses and then remain clinically stable for many decades."

I must admit this only jumped out at me because I live in Scotland, a country with a very high number of MS cases and a lot of those people sadly end up dying. I just thought it should be brought up.

It may not lead to the entry for the page being changed but I think it should be considered.
