    a fascinating and stimulating talk by Dr Morten - I found the interaction between viruses and mitochondria most interesting - I recall DeMeirleir discussing intracellular viral mechanisms up-regulated - perhaps a link there; Newton did not find cellular lactate levels raised in muscle cells, one might imagine if mitochondria have a primary dysfunction we might see this; yet some studies have shown lactate levels raised in the brain. I imagine what ever is going on, a pathogen may be disrupting the TCA cyle or the immune response eg chronic inflammation may be generating a range of chemicals and gases that disrupt cellular respiration
