This is an excellent overview of ME/CFS. The only point I would disagree with is that we patients will have to “start over”. Most of us recognized the political nature of the “contamination papers”, the timing, the funding, the source. If you follow the money, you will find that Unum, the disability insurer that advises the UK equivalent of SSA on how to deny claims has targeted ME/CFS, among other diseases, to disinform the medical industry and the public about. They have been doing this in UK and the US since about 1997 and have been very successful at portraying the illness as mysterious, unsolvable and “mental”. Those of us who have been following the politics as well as the science know that the near instantaneous response of the UK and European “studies” was damage control, not the search for XMRV. Likewise, the CDC, whose Chronic Viral Diseases Branch has spent the tiny amount of CFS research money they had on “studies” trying to convince everyone that CFS is caused by personality disorders and childhood sexual abuse!

If you don't comment, I'll just assume you agree with me
