New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    Politicians sell their souls to Satan so they can learn to open their mouths and fill the universe with "anti-sense"
    Their crap repels normal sense, and thus sensible people, like the way the same magnetic poles push each other apart, and thus they fill the world with a void of useless pish! :p

    Politicians, proof that the Elder Gods of Evil are real! :alien:

    Very interesting story - thanks for posting. Gives an idea of what a real ME clinic would be like as opposed to what we get palmed off with here in the UK and elsewhere.

    It's not an "HR matter" ... it's a health care policy matter. The establishment's policy is "fast and cheap", and that doesn't work for complex chronic diseases. It needs to change, and the doctor was doing what was necessary to do her job properly, rather than engage in neglect as her employers demand.

    Now I am concerned. My mum used to be a politician. There were no outward signs of that she had sold her soul to the devil. I wonder if he gave it back to her after she quit politics.

    Well, she quit politics so obviously she was one of the few who refused the Faustian Pact! :p

    i agree it's a health policy and it's a funding policy as well. The province decided they would give the clinic peanuts, like 1 millions a year. They said there would not be testing and there would be strong emphasis on self-management.

    That is a huge problem because patients are very sick and have been proacticing self management for decades now and eating the nightshade vegetables (yep that's what she preaches) and meditating is not gonna chage a whole lot of anything.
