My biggest Sth Australian newspaper called the Advertiser published I think yesterday (my elderly friend just show me this) a small article "Yuppie flu is real " (sighs I thought that yuppie flu term went out with the 1980s). Anyway, though I cant find their printed article online as its a paid newspaper I thought I'd mention this appearing over in my country. The article is about the University of California, San Diego discovering a "specific chemical signature in the blood. Bizarrely, the changes echo those seen in hibernating animals." "Symptoms of CFS include extreme physical and mental fatigue and painful limbs" is how they describe this illness.
