I think there's a video feed on the nightly news one- I expect the today show one will be later!

I think the publishing of this study in the Journal of the American Medical Association yesterday is what's triggering this publicity firestorm- this really is a *huge* discovery and very exciting-

In a book I've read, they discuss this hospital in Chicago has plaques with the names of great scientists and medical advance pioneers- and one plaque remains empty- reserved for the great scientist who discovers the cure for preeclampsia.

It is weird to think of it out of a personal context, isn't it!?!

Did anyone else watch the Today show?

They were saying that within 2 yrs. there could be a cure for PRE E.
Researchers have found the cause of it and this can be determined if you will get it from a simple urine test from about 25 weeks.
