    It is pretty well all she (and a few others) have. They have largely built their careers and reputations on it, so if it turns out to be wrong or trivial, then ignominy and irrelevancy loom for them.


    Some of the usual suspects in there. :whistle:

    what constitutes a 'childhood stressor'? And can it include persistent viral infections as a kid?

    Not for many of them anyway.

    Here's a sample from a CDC study:

    One of the big problems in this study was it used the empiric criteria (2.54% of the population, picks a lot who likely simply have depression).

    How hard is it for the Uk to study ME/CFS - the neurological disease with the weird metabolic characteristics and stress receptors as found by the USA and Australian scientists?
    The disease defined by the CCC and the ICC criteria needs independent studies until biomarkers are found. Once biomarkers are found for the disorincr disease cohort then where the diagnostic line is will be clear.
    At the moment studying an unclear soup of fatigue patients and not those with post exertional malaise the core diagnostic marker of Me/CFS is harming people.

    Childhood stressors or not is immaterial what is needed is biomarkers? How can you pretend to know if childhood stressors are relevant when you don't even know how to distinguish the disease from other diseases with similar symptoms.
