Looking Ahead to Change: Little by Little
I don't make New Year's Resolutions. I don't think I ever really did, but the last decade or two would have been enough to stifle that impulse. I've just been too aware that I don't have that much control over what happens in my life.

Anyone's thoughts on the CFIDS Foundation theory...

    I stumbled onto this site quite by accident. The CFIDS foundation has a theory that this disease is caused by chronic low level radiation poisoning. For whatever reason I have never before read anything about this as I always

    assumed my onset suggested a viral cause. I would like to hear anyone else's thoughts on this theory as I know many of you will have researched this or at least seen it. Even if you haven't I would like to read about your

    thoughts. Does anyone think this theory has any validity? I don't know what to think! I saw Hip's thread on cell towers and possible illness, which got me interested, but I think these researchers are suggesting much more than microwave radiation. Thank you in advance! Here's the site I stumbled onto if you are interested.

    What is meant by "CFS is a slow progression to cancer"?

    Are they suggesting that all PWC eventually develop cancer?

    Radiation exposure can be a cause of acute chronic fatigue, but not the vague/ambigious "low level radiation poisoning". The signs of that are different to what we have.

    I'm willing to bet money this isn't the answer.

    It appears they do believe what you stated @Skippa. I was quite shocked to find those pages! If one lived close to Fukushima, Chernobyl, or Three Mile Island then maybe it would make more sense. But I can't begin to believe they think all ME/CFS people are victims of low level radiation poisoning! I hate it when I find stuff like

    this on the net. I believe they are also suggesting that all of us PWC are more susceptible(sensitive) to radiation poisoning than other people are. I will say that I believe we haven't been told the whole truth about any of those disasters, especially Fukushima. But I think their supposition is outlandish! I need to spend more time away from the computer!

    It's not radiation poisoning. There would be a high degree of clustering of cases if it was.
