    A Study of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Therapies Is Debunked (Again)

    A new analysis of a 2011 study that supported dubious treatments for the disease finds that its conclusions were “not justified by the data.”

    Very good, concise article on what's so horribly wrong with the "recovery" paper.

    I've left a comment (currently in moderation).

    Please let's all go and read the article, give David the traffic, and leave comments - it all helps to pave the way for more articles!

    Unfortunately there are so many who do not, and assume it is not their responsibility; so the analogy still holds very true.

    Some very good comments on his article, worth having a look.

    And don't forget to leave one yourself! It all helps David get future coverage.

  6. If it's fraud, if it is not immediately denounced, stopped apologies given and prosecutions begun....as they have not....
    then it's deliberate system of fraud to deny treatment and help to millions of people
    thus: genocide
    Cold blooded, deliberate evil

    We hanged people for such crimes en masse 76 years ago and for damn good reason.

    Time the Aegean Stables were cleaned out again, and the turds shown for what they are and all their honours and wealth taken from them, before welding them in jail cells for the rest of their miserable, misbegotten lives.

    or we could sentence them to a life time serving in the likes of Doctors Without Borders, living and aiding those in the worst conditions on Earth while dealing with the threats of disease, bandits, terrorists and booby traps.
    That would both be useful and poetic justice.

    Can't agree to them being allowed anywhere near vulnerable people again. They'd be handing out questionnaires in no time.
