Epilepsy FAQ

I want to thank Andrew Patrick for this informative post. I also want to 
raise two issues from my perusal of it. First, I note that the FAQ avoids 
the issue of an association between temporal lobe epilepsy and 
aggressive behaviour. I'm not saying that there _is_ an association, only 
that I recall that the issue has come up, and it should be addressed.

Secondly, I'm surprised at the unqualified endorsement of the ketogenic 
diet. I'm not aware that the value of this diet has been rigorously 
established (by double-blind experiment as opposed to case studies, for 
example).
