   * **mental disorders** – A 2008 study of parents of children with autism found they were more likely to have been hospitalized for a mental disorder than parents of control subjects. Schizophrenia was more common among case mothers and fathers compared with respective control parents.(({{pubmed>​long:​18450879}})) In a case study, Beleza-Meirles found that schizophrenia and mental retardation had very high rates of incidence in a particular family.(({{pubmed>​long:​18254962}})) A similar by Sveinbjörnsdóttir also observed high rates of Parkinson'​s in an extended family.(({{pubmed>​long:​11114315}}))   * **mental disorders** – A 2008 study of parents of children with autism found they were more likely to have been hospitalized for a mental disorder than parents of control subjects.

   * **autism and eye disorders** – Researchers working at the University of Illinois at Chicago have found a [[http://​www.scientificamerican.com/​article.cfm?​id=autism-relatives-symptoms|striking trend]]: those with autistic relatives are more likely to show disrupted eye movement similar to their afflicted relation.(({{pubmed>​long:​20679591}}))   * **autism and eye disorders** – Researchers working at the University of Illinois at Chicago have found a [[http://​www.scientificamerican.com/​article.cfm?​id=autism-relatives-symptoms|striking trend]]: those with autistic relatives are more likely to show disrupted eye movement similar to their afflicted relation.(({{pubmed>​long:​20679591}}))
 +  * **autoimmune disease** – In a study of families who have a member with primary Sjögren'​s syndrome, 38% had at least one first-degree relative with an autoimmune disease, versus 22% in control families.(({{pubmed>​long:​17086607}})) The most frequent autoimmune diseases registered among the patients'​ first-degree relatives were autoimmune thyroid disease, systemic lupus erythematosus,​ and rheumatoid arthritis.

 As evidenced by progress reports on the Marshall Protocol site, there are a substantial number of spouses who both suffer from chronic inflammatory diseases. There are also entire families on the MP - with each member using the treatment to eliminate his or her own [[home:​pathogenesis:​successive_infection#​pea_soup|pea-soup]]. As evidenced by progress reports on the Marshall Protocol site, there are a substantial number of spouses who both suffer from chronic inflammatory diseases.

 When one considers how often chronic diseases co-occur within a family unit – heart disease, arthritis, bipolar disorder, breast cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, Alzheimer’s disease – it becomes increasingly plausible that nearly all inflammatory diseases are communicable and that this communicability results in familial aggregation. When one considers how often chronic diseases co-occur within a family unit – heart disease, arthritis, bipolar disorder, breast cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, Alzheimer’s disease – it becomes increasingly plausible that nearly all inflammatory diseases are communicable and that this communicability results in familial aggregation.
