shrinking Dollar go As far As possible the last thing of us really wants to hear is another pressing s Kail problem in trying to avoid using controls but when that problem left alone drains up to a billion dollars a year out of the National Economy Ilion it demands attention for economic As Well As humanitarian reasons a billion dollars a year that the Price tag the is surgeon generals advisory committee on the epilepsy is has placed on the annual Cost of epilepsy to Federal and local governments and where does the Money go into clinics medical services research perhaps yes a part of it hut the major share goes into unemployment and welfare services to support epileptics who cannot get jobs and that is the Crux of the problem employment More than four million americans have epilepsy roughly equivalent to the combined populations of bosom Cleveland St Louis Cincinnati and Columbus a majority of these people no longer have any seizures at All thanks to modern drug treat men Bui

of their medical history not their present condition according to the epilepsy foundation of America the picture is bleaker still among the approximately 4fi per cent who Are still prone to have seizures Here a conservative estimate puts eight out of every 10 Job seekers chronically unemployed Noone would quarrel with an employers in to place seizure prone people in certain jobs it would obviously be extremely hazardous to have a seizure prone epileptic driving a steam Crane Bui As the foundation Points out there Are Many jobs even the seizure prone can do Many non hazardous occupations without extensive Public Contact and for those with seizure control there should be no barriers to employment furthermore the foundation has some compelling statistics to show that people with epilepsy can stay free of seizures for years that they make careful conscientious employees with better than average safety records society rejection of the epileptic goes Back to medieval times and beyond to the Days when an epileptic seizure was believed to indicate Possession by demons of course Noone believes that any More but clearly too Many people still behave As if they do obviously we cannot afford this continuing waste of lives and Money four million people need a better break and a billion dollars would be better spent finding new treatments and new ways to prevent this
