We at the MIC are aware that there are growing controversies about the
nature of mollusca - what organism is responsible, whether or
not it can truly be called a "disease," how many people are infected, and
what, if anything, should be done about it.
We hope that by providing arguments from all sides in an unbiased
manner, without takng sides, we will be helpful in promoting dialog about
this important issue.
Soon we hope to allow immediate feedback and chat-like discussion in
these pages, with secure anonymity guaranteed. Please be patient.
