"A swell in new cases of narcolepsy in China followed seasonal patterns of flu, including H1N1, according to a recent study led by Dr. Emmanuel Mignot of the Stanford University School of Medicine. The new cases appear to be associated with flu infection itself, not with flu vaccinations.
A peak in cases of narcolepsy — an autoimmune disease that causes people to fall asleep suddenly — occurred about five to seven months after a peak in cold and flu cases in the country, the study found. Onset in the spring was seven times more common than in the winter."
I post this because of people increasingly spreading disinformation about the flu vaccines causing narcolepsy - while this may happen (see earlier Scoop), it is possible the virus itself, or a couple of its proteins, are what is doing it. See http://www.thelocal.se/41180/20120601/
