    The same can be said of those hanging out at bad science, pseudoscience, quackwatch, etc. If he was being intellectually honest he would provide that perspective as well. But I suppose it's okay to drink the kool aide if you go to those places?

    You do realize that study in your link is about "chronic illness" and not CFS?

    I agree.

    Can't believe he claims to be a 'journalist' and denies the misappropriation.

    I like Racianello. I think he does a good thing promoting science on his site. He seems mostly to be a nice guy and unbiased. Racianello may not want to ban a guy from his show since he's a nice guy and he's happy when people come on his show to promote science, but he's got to realize that emotional retards with PhDs are a dime a dozen and not going to help anyone get interested in science and just flush that POS Dove.

    I must be slow, but I thought "ERV" was some kind of joke - "endogenous retrovirus".
    As in "Dove is one step this side of ERV" ie. primitive.

    But she's some blogger, right?

    Not sure what country you are in, but are there more medical options in other countries? And in case you missed it, this country is broke and going down the tubes, perhaps the new health care law will help, but some how I doubt that! Has the US govt really helped or hurt our cause?

    Our debt is equal to our output in a year, doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize how hard of a hole that is to dig out of!
