Sir: The Epilepsy Foundation of America and The Epilepsy Foundation of America  
Library are, as far as I know, the same organization. I received a phone call  
from them today, asking me to state what I had posted. The E.F.A. stated, in  
effect, that SOMEONE called them this morning claiming that I said that it was  
E.F.A. policy to state that allergy caused epilepsy. I never said that. I said  
that (in effect) there was a connection between the two, BUT FOR DETAILED  
INFORMATION CALL [THEM]...(emphasis added). If, sir, you are (paraphrased)  
"...too lazy to call..."[them], that remains your problem(s).

If you are implying that I called the EFA to complain, let me say that I did
not do so; since I do not believe there is a connection between
allergy (as defined medically, and not used as a fancy word for adverse
reaction) and epilepsy, I could not be bothered to disturb legitimate
organizations such as the EFA.

As for the second part of your post, I feel that if you make claims
which are not generally accepted, then you should give the appropriate
references and underlying reasons, and not just pass the  buck to
a service organization.  Also, I thought my plea of "laziness"
was an obvious facetiousness which shold be evident to all on this
newsgroup.
