    That's gonna leave a mark!

    The Axial Biotech Scoliscore test was sold to a company called Transgenomic for pennies on the dollar after Axial was liquidated and shut down.

    Hi Coolblue,

    I've spent thousands of hours reading about Scoliosis and although exercise is good for any child yoga or stretching probably won't have any effect on your daughter's curve. However...

    That quote from Joe O'Brien is gold.

    Concerned Dad,

    I'm sorry to hear that your daughter's curve progressed but I'm sure she will make a full recovery after surgery.

    I'll send you some positive energy.

    Good luck!

    Years from now when scientists pin Scoliosis on some sort of common, infectious disease (and they will) all I ask is that you remember these threads.

    (facepalm) Natural selection never rests. It doesn't have a choice. It's always operating on us. Period.

    Without getting too specific the reason I've been writing lately is because it's either...

    One of the things many people miss about that point is that it not only describes Scoliosis but almost every other disease researchers have looked at. That includes known infectious diseases.

    There is a reason that most people have straight spines. I think 10 degrees matters. Probably 5 degrees matters. Humans stand upright and any type of back problem or weakness is a serious hit to...
