Did anyone see her movie staring Julie Roberts where she took on a giant chemical company? Well it was based on a true story and now the consumer advocate is once again investigating. This time there is

I did watch that movie several years ago and I remember how strong and passionate she was. With her participation in the investigation of this strange illness, I think it will help. If anything it will draw more attention to the matter (and hopefully some answers!). I can't even imagine what these teens are living with right now. :(

I did see the movie and loved it. And I've heard about the illness these girls have contracted and the "official diagnosis". I just keep putting myself in the parents' shoes; I know I'd want every single aspect investigated.

I'm sure the city is grateful to have Erin Bulldog Brockovich behind them.

I hope they find a cause - I know if it were one of my children I would want every thing possible done to find a cause. And it is less about blame than wanting to find the right treatment - honestly people are so concerned about who gets blamed that they forget these are all young, vibrant teens who just want to get their lives back.

"The school called the testing 'grandstanding.'"

Really!?!? How could you have 15 people with this problem and not have at least a shadow of a doubt about environmental factors? Why is the school working against them? Shouldn't they be working with them to get to the root of the problem?

I just don't get it.

I was just reading another report on this story and some neurologists are calling the 17 cases of it at the highschool "hysteria". I can't imagine 17 girls all coming down with the same symptoms and docs excusing it away like this!

Have you guys looked into a possible con action between the new hpv vaccine they are making the kids take? This is the cause. No one will admit it... you haven't see anymore hpv vaccine ads? That's right. Oh and I can america you can't sue because of complications due to vaccines. Yeah we are in trouble.

How interesting. Can I ask why you are led to believe this? Have you seen some kind of documentations you can let the rest of us know about?

Can't imagine that many girls all with hysteria either. And for grandstanding, when there is no known cause in that many, I see NO problem with checking out whatever to be 'sure'. Often times with 'illnesses' or conditions, they need to rule out things to figure it out. Don't think this is any different.
