This article calls SLE "system" Lupus Erythematosis.

I cannot accept the opinions put forth in an article who's author does not even know the difference between the words system, and systemic.

Last I checked, I have Systemic Lupus Erythematosis.

The person who wrote this article cannot even properly name the condition they are talking about. Basic mistakes like this make me question the credibility of those who wrote this article.
