   Idea:-The flu damages cells in airways and sinuses temperaly but is there 
  also brain damage adjacent to the sinuses that is permanent and that is 
  involved in dyslexia symptons?

   Observation:-I have mild to moderate dyslexia as tested authoritivly and my 
father gets sinasitus reguarly and my grandfather became deaf after neumonia in 
the 1st wold war. I have read that the ability to balance and decern fast 
spoken words is part of the class of dyslexia symptons, even though not always 
present as a combination. This sugests that dyslexia is linked to the ear. 
Sometimes eye coordination doesnt work ok so may be the sinuses near the eyes 
could be leting damage get to nerves or brain cells. Meninggitus is the most 
famous of sinus related brain damaging infections so are there many other 
milder infections also. Anyway I read dyslexia seems to have some 

 I also realise the poli'/economical implications 
regarding inherited brain difficulties and this ever more skill requiring world 
as opose to physical labour tasks. Dyslexia is now discussed for adults and 
especially children as the need shows itself ongoingly.

 Please e-mail me or the 
group as to how close this electronics repair engineer is to describing a 
possible cause of dyslexia or any other brain competance. --john (Everybody
